Welsh Mini Masters

The Welsh Mini Masters is an open golf competition for players that are not members of a golf club or have recently joined a golf club but have not yet obtained a handicap of below 28.

The event is designed as a fun opportunity for young golfers to put in to practice skills they are currently developing.

Each qualifying round will be split into the following categories:-

  • Male and female as at 1st September 2012
    7 and under (pupils, in the current school year, who have been in Year 2 and below)
  • 8 – 9 (pupils, in the current school year, who have been in Years 3 & 4)
  • 10 – 11 (pupils, in the current school year, who have been in Years 5 & 6)
  • 12 plus (Year 7 and above)

The competition will be played over 9 holes at the following venues:

The top 6 fundraisers from across Wales will be invited to The Celtic Manor to play in their own separate event. There will be an additional prize for the top individual fundraiser.

Each of our venues are perfect for those new to the game of golf. All equipment required to take part in the competition (clubs and balls) can be provided at the qualifying venue but players will have the opportunity to use their own equipment if they prefer.

Holes are generally between 40 – 160 yards in length and the course will be set up specifically with young beginner golfers in mind.

We particularly encourage entries from golfers with a disability with a previous Welsh Mini Masters winner going on to be the British Disabled Boys Champion.

The maximum number of shots on each hole is 10 and there are a number of other changes to the usual Rules of Golf. Click here for a full list of the Rules of the Competition.

Entry costs £5 which goes to the associated charity Shelter Cymru and helps with the running costs of the event. To register click here.
