2023 Junior Order of Merit

Warwickshire Golf, in partnership with Warwickshire Ladies County Golf Association, are holding a Junior Order of Merit in 2023. This will split into a Spring Series and Summer Series.

Competitions will take place at some of the leading Golf Clubs in the county, as the youngsters aim for 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.

A nine-hole Order of Merit for both boys and girls will also be held, as we look to encourage higher handicappers, younger golfers and those trying to get their first handicap. Places will once again be up for grabs in the JOOM Grand Final.
