Warwickshire Golf

Junior Order of Merit

Warwickshire Golf, in partnership with Warwickshire Ladies County Golf Association, held an exciting new Junior Order of Merit in 2021.

Competitions took place at some of the leading Golf Clubs in the county, as the youngsters chased the top prize in the 18-hole gross and net categories for both boys and girls, as well as trying to book their place in the JOOM Grand Final at the end of the season.

And new for 2021, we held a nine-hole Order of Merit for both boys and girls as we looked to encourage higher handicappers, younger golfers and those trying to get their first handicap. Places were once again up for grabs in the JOOM Grand Final.

2021 Junior Order of Merit (Final Standings):

Boys 18 Hole Gross

Boys 18-hole Net

Girls 18-hole Gross & Net

Boys & Girls 9-Hole
