Reigate Heath Golf Club in Surrey hosts its Second Southern School Invitation.
On May 4, 22 teams of girls and boys from state and private schools will compete in the second Southern Schools Invitational around the nine-hole course.
Club member and treasurer John Warbey said: “For over 100 years Reigate Heath GC has always been a big supporter of junior golf and especially ladies’ golf. Nowadays with so many of us leading time pressured lifestyles with little time to spare for 18 holes of golf, we’re finding that more and more people are coming to play nine holes, so it’s a way of playing golf that is increasingly popular.
“We wanted a way of celebrating junior golf, ladies golf and nine holes, and so the Southern Schools Invitational was born during 2016 and we are delighted to be hosting the second Invitation this year. The huge interest shown by the schools, our council and our members has been very encouraging, and we’re working hard to make sure it’s going to be a memorable event.
