The Belfry Hotel & Resort has become the home of the Robert Rock Junior Tour, which is run by Midlands-based European Tour Professional Robert Rock.
The tour offers a series of junior golf tournaments, with both 18-hole and 9-hole events, open to all junior golfers under 18. The Belfry is no stranger to junior golf tours having recently played host to the Junior British Masters held in April.
“We are thrilled to work with the Robert Rock Junior Golf Tour at the PGA National Academy and to welcome more aspiring young golfers to The Belfry, said Chris Reeve, Director of Golf at The Belfry. “It is a fantastic opportunity for everyone involved to continue to introduce more youngsters to the sport to learn new skills, meet friends and discover new opportunities,”
Robert Rock, founder of the Robert Rock Junior Tour, said: “I am very excited to be able to introduce the next generation of golfers to The Belfry. The resort has played a huge part in my life and golfing career, it couldn’t be a more perfect location for the new home of the Robert Rock Junior Golf Tour,” said
Natalie Clarke, organiser of the Robert Rock Junior Tour, added: “I’m really looking forward to meeting and sharing my passion for golf with talented juniors. This is a great opportunity for aspiring young golfers of all levels to develop and progress their skills. It is a very exciting time for the Robert Rock Junior Golf Tour, and I am delighted to be a part of it.”
Throughout the summer, juniors can also get involved in The Belfry’s Summer Golf Academy, an intensive golf camp for intermediate and advanced junior golfers aged from 11 to 15 years old. Summer Golf Academy takes place from 9am to 12pm every Tuesday and Thursday from July 27 to August 26. The programme, taught by the resort’s PGA Professionals, will focus on golf technique and strategy including putting, short game, irons, woods, shape shots, and course management.
