Club Manager Elaine McBride said “We are delighted that Luis has been selected as the recipient of the Hawthorns Junior Golf Bursary. Having been selected for the England Regional squad last year he has gone from strength to strength reducing his handicap to 0.9.  Luis is a great ambassador for junior golf and we are very proud to have him as a member of NCGC”.

David Seward commented, “Being involved in our local community is an important part of life at The Hawthorns and we are very proud to have given this Junior Bursary to Luis and we are all rooting for his success. Luis will even have his own board in the Club House at The Hawthorns Northampton where our residents can keep up to date with his progress.”
