HEYDON Grange will be hosting the British Junior Golf Tour.

The competition, which takes place on Wednesday, August 6, will see some of the best eight-year-old golfers battle it out in an 18-hole competition.

The tour, which is building on a very successful format from last winter, gives youngsters the opportunity to pit their skills against others from around the area.

The organisers will also be putting on a nine-hole short course event for those children just starting to learn, and who have yet to receive a handicap.
