The Stonham Junior Players Championship in the last of eight tournaments each year and only players that have played in at least one event are invited to play. This junior tournament was first played at Stonham Barns in 2001 and has been played every year since. Over 500 juniors have played in the event over the years with some previous winners going on to become county players and even England internationals. In addition to rewarding the winners one of the main aims of these events is to encourage players of all standards to come along, have fun and enjoy playing some competitive golf.
This year the event was played using Big HOLE Golf which uses larger 8 inch golf holes. This concept is now becoming popular all over the world as a way of getting increased participation into golf – Quicker Rounds - Makes Golf Fun - Have Less Putts. Stonham Barns was the first course in the UK to convert to Big Hole Golf and the feedback from all the players has been great.
