2024 Foxes Junior Pathway Tour
"Ladies Golf Association and Mens Golf Union working together for County Junior Golf"
Welcome to the 3rd year of the Pathway Tour which is now a series of six (**an extra event has been added to the 2024 schedule**) competitions run for Girls & Boys at Clubs across Leicestershire & Rutland with the aim of introducing junior golfers to competitive golf in a safe and fun environment.
It provides Tour Members with the opportunity to develop their game at all levels under the watchful eye of the County Boys and Girls Junior Organisers, Mick Billingham (County boys) and Anita Higginson (County girls) who will be running the Tour in conjunction with the Counties Affiliated Golf Clubs.
The Tour Membership, at no cost, is available to any Junior (under 18 on 1 Jan 2024 with a minimum entry age of 7 on the same date) who is either a Junior or Academy Member at any Leicestershire & Rutland Affiliated Club.
**New for 2024** all Tour Members registered to play will be presented with a Tour Welcome Pack at their first event.

Tour Categories (please note progression through categories is fully defined in the tour competitor information and rules below)
|This is aimed at non handicapped new juniors who should have started beginners group coaching sessions. You will have 50 shots to get as far round the shortened 9 hole course as you can.
|This category is still for non handicapped players but for those who have naturally progressed from the Flag50 event and you will play a slightly longer course which will take you closer to being awarded your first official WHS Handicap.
|9 Hole Stepping Stones*
|This category was introduced in 2023 and is designed for those players who have developed beyond the Super50 events and are now ready for a true 9 hole challenge but have not yet been awarded their formal WHS Handicap.
|9 Hole Stableford*
|These events will run from the Red tees (or equivalent) for Boys and Girls and are aimed at the new and higher handcapped players. Players with a WHS Handicap Index 36.1 - 54.0 will automatically be entered into this event and those with an index of 24.1 - 36.0 will have the option to enter this or the 18 hole event.
|18 Hole Stableford
|This is the next step in your development pathway and will be a natural progression from the 9 Hole events. They will be run from the Red Tees for the Girls and the Yellow Tees for the Boys. WHS Handicap index 24.0 and below will automatically be entered into this category and those with an index of 24.1 - 36.0 will have the option to start in either this category or the 9 Hole event.
* all of these groups will be have Adult supervision. Players in all categories will require their own clubs.
Prizes - will be awarded in all categories for boys and girls. In 2023 we added a gross prize for the best boy and girl and the 18 hole event was split into two nett prize groups 18.0 and below and 36.0 - 18.1 - we intend to continue this in 2024. We also run a Nett OoM across all 6 of the 18 Hole events which is kindly supported by The Society of Leicestershire & Rutland Golf Captains. **New for 2024** is the addition of a Gross OoM which will run along the same lines as the Nett.
Tour Entry Fees - we want to make these events as affordable as possible for Tour Members and in addition to being run at our own County Clubs reducing travel costs for you all, thanks to the excellent support from the host clubs and Taskers Funding, we have been able to keep the entry fees low and they have not increased since we laucnhed the tour!
Only £5 for the Flag50/Super50/9 Hole & £8 for the 18 hole
