Grange juniors get Lexus Cup boost

 THE Juniors at South Australia's Grange Golf Club will be thanking the Lexus Cup after the club took out the $2,500 prize for attracting the most new registrations for Series One of the competition.

The club, who had 200 of their 413 Lexus Cup players register this series, said the money will be spent on an upcoming junior trip.

“We are delighted to be recipients of the $2,500 Lexus Cup prize to contribute to our High Performance Development Program,” Grange Golf Co-Ordinator Nikki Pridham said.

“It has come at a great time as we are about to send 16 junior golfers to a Country Tournament which allows them to play under competition conditions and experience different courses.

“This prize will allow the Club to fully fund this trip which includes the entry fee, a Teaching Pro for the weekend, transport, accommodation, food and uniforms.”

She said the club is proud of their junior program with more than 50 youngsters on the books, more than any suburban Adelaide club.

“We really work hard at promoting our juniors and making them part of the club,” she said.

“We let them play in our Saturday fields which a lot of places don't and really do try to make sure they are a part of the fabric of the place.”

The Grange was a clear winner in the “New Entrants” category with next best going to another South Australian club, West Lakes, with 139 new registrations.

The prize is aimed at not only encouraging Lexus Cup participation but also helping the future health of the game by developing junior golfers.
