We are proud to have a vibrant and active Junior Section that has a long tradition of success. One long time junior member was US Open and Olympic Champion Justin Rose who is still linked to the club today.
“North Hants Golf Club will always be close to my heart. I have so many cherished memories of my time there as a junior member and formed friendships that will last for the rest of my life. Those special days gave me the essential foundations in golf and social skills that have been crucial in my success today. Long live the North Hants Juniors.” Justin Rose
