Welcome to our Junior page

Cromer Rookies!

Here is a photograph of just a number of our juniors, taken at our Prize Giving last summer. 

Through an initiative with Cromer Academy last year, our drive to introduce young people to golf has resulted in Royal Cromer welcoming a number of new juniors to the club. 

It is a delight to see them joining with our current juniors and to witness the enthusiasm and talent all our juniors have in abundance.

There is a lot to report for our Cromer Rookies over the past 12 months or so. A full Junior News Page will be out shortly.

You will have seen that our juniors have been very much in evidence with regular Roll-Ups, Club Nights and lots of competitions. For all our Club competitions, we now have both 9 and 18 hole events so that all our juniors can compete. 

Huge thanks are due to Lee and the Pro Shop for all their hard work and to our wonderful band of volunteers, without whom we would not be able to afford our juniors all these opportunities. 

The junior section of Royal Cromer Golf Club is going strong and it is a delight to see the progress our Cromer Rookies are making. Over the year, we had a great run in the K K Smith reaching the Semi Final and only very narrowly losing out to Bawburgh who went on to win the title for the fourth year in a row. 

Added to that, handicaps are coming tumbling down. 
To name just one, Ruby Patterson now plays off just 19 and amongst her successes this year was her win of the NLGCA Birdie Championship McHarg Trophy with a staggering 51 points! 

So, more news to follow with a full round up of the year for our Cromer Rookies. In the meantime, many congratulations to all and I look forward to our Christmas Cup and Junior Prizegiving on Saturday 15th December!

Our established juniors are leading by example. Casey Paterson had a sterling year last year, as evidenced by his tumbling handicap. Amongst his successes, he was the victor in the County Junior Handicap Matchplay at Heacham Manor and has since attended the U18 County Squad day at Dunston Hall.

Casey and our Vice Captain Will Howett unfortunately lost on the play off hole in the County Foursomes Final at Sheringham. Still an absolutely amazing effort for Royal Cromer Golf Club.
Well done Casey and Will.
Amelia Williamson goes from strength to strength having recently been selected as one of five members to play in the French U21 Championship at St Cloud, 29th March - 2nd April. In August, Amelia is off to America to pursue her golfing career. At an upcoming Junior Club Night, Amelia will be telling us of her story so far and her ambitions for the future

County Call Up!

I would like to take this opportunity to publicly congratulate two of our players who recently had the call up to play in the County Girls 2nd Team. Both Ruby Patterson and Mary Keen were asked to represent Norfolk Girls playing against Bedford Girls at The Bedford on Sunday 21st October. Unfortunately, Ruby was not able to attend but Mary Keen went to represent the County, and Royal Cromer Golf Club. The overall result was a win to Norfolk 3-1 and Mary had a fabulous game, winning 6 up!

Cromer Rookies News - 14th & 15th July

What a great weekend it has been for our Cromer Rookies. On Saturday, they played in their Club competition for the Captain Palmes Trophy. Captain Palmes was Captain of Royal Cromer Golf Club in 1922. You can see his name engraved on the captains' brass plate in the foyer. He was a former military Captain DFC.

Our winner in the 18 hole competition was Ruby Patterson with a magnificent 39 points. In our 9 hole competition, Kelsey Turvey was the victor with an impressive 16 points. Many congratulations to our winners and to all who competed.

On Sunday, three of our Cromer Rookie girls went to Sheringham to compete in the Norfolk County Championship for Junior Girls. All competed very well in the Birdie Championship McHarg Trophy for Handicaps 25-36 on a course they had hitherto not played. Ruby added to her success on Saturday, scoring an amazing 51 points. On Saturday morning, she stood on the tee at Royal Cromer playing off 33. By Sunday afternoon, that handicap had rocketed down to 23! Mary Keen also saw another handicap cut. Having recently come down from 35 to 30, Mary came fourth in the Birdie Championship and now plays off 29.

2019 Roll of Honour

Bass League

Saturday 11th May 2019

Our Cromer Rookies had the Bass League second leg match at Mundesley on Saturday 11th May 2019. It was a draw but we won our home match 2.5/1.5.

They all played well and I'm delighted that we go through to the next round.

Score over both legs was 4.5 RCGC / 3.5 Mundesley. If I have read the draw correctly, next up will be away to either Kings Lynn or Dereham.

Congratulations and good luck for the next one!
