The Midlothian golf clubs and facilities developing their junior sections through national junior programme ClubGolf have the opportunity to gain national recognition when the RBS Junior Club and Volunteer Awards are presented in March.

A prize of £1,000 is up for grabs in the RBS Junior Club of the Year Award, while £500 will be presented to Scottish Golf’s leading volunteer at the annual Scottish Golf Awards in Glasgow on Friday, March 23.

The awards will celebrate the achievements of golfers and golf clubs across Scotland, raising funds to develop the country’s young golfers.

Numbers of juniors taking up golf across Scotland are at an all time high as a result of the flourishing national junior programme ClubGolf, supported by RBS, which has introduced 220,000 P5 children to golf. More than 12,675 children are now active in ClubGolf coaching at 311 clubs in Scotland.

Taking part in the clubgolf scheme in Midlothian are Broomieknowe Golf Club, Glencorse Golf Club, Melville Driving Range and Newbattle Golf Club.
