A NEW junior golf format that is being rolled out across the county by Golf Foundation is proving a hit in Wiltshire.

Golf Sixes involves six clubs from across the county entering squads of young golfers to compete in a pairs Texas Scramble over six short course holes.

In total, eight events will be played between May and October.

On Sunday, North Wilts hosted the competition’s fifth round – with Bassett Down, Broome Manor, Chippenham, North Wilts, Salisbury & South Wilts and Wrag Barn taking part.

A putting competition started the afternoon, before 36 budding youngsters played on the course proper.

After some strong performances, Broome Manor were crowned winners – followed by hosts North Wilts.

The sixth event is at Cumberwell on September 1.
