A very familiar sight at Hamptworth Golf & Country Club is that of a group of juniors having a putting competition as you pass them on the drive into the club, however this wasn't always the case. As a young club we have worked really hard to get our junior section growing and for a few years we had lots of keen junior members but all who were very young, needing supervision. Now they are all blossoming into very capable golfers and are being chased by all the new blood coming into the club.
