The England Golf National Skills Challenge, supported by FootJoy, has over 850 golf clubs and 6,500 juniors registered to take part.  

The Skills Challenge aims to make practice fun for young golfers and consists of 10 activities, which clubs run for their junior players. These support skill development and also provide encouragement to practice.  Golf clubs which run Skills Challenge events within two specific dates input their players’ scores onto an online leaderboard, which identifies the juniors who qualify for the regional finals.

The Regional Final at The Warwickshire Golf & Country Club turned out to be a real challenge, using the superb practice area, putting green and driving range facilities.  For further details on The Warwickshire Golf & Country Club and their facilities click here.
