LIKE most local golf clubs Trefloyne has its seniors’ club team, classic teams, ladies’ teams and club team, alongside the Dyfed League and Jeff Harrison Bowl teams.

And now there’s literally a new kid on the block – the Trefloyne Juniors Team.

It’s a handful of keen and talented youngsters playing in the Junior Sixes inter-club matches that are run by Wales Golf, and the Golf Foundation.

So, on a grey Friday night last week, teams from Haverfordwest and Trefloyne travelled to Milford Haven Golf Club for the Golf Sixes League.

With parents and supporters in tow there was a tremendous turnout.

It was the first match that the Trefloyne youngsters had played, and it was the first time on another golf course.

But the team did themselves proud, and put in a great effort against very strong contingents from Milford and Haverfordwest.

Milford with home advantage were the winners, followed by Haverfordwest with Trefloyne in an honourable third place.

The guys represented the club extremely well and had a wonderful time, learning more about the game along the way.

Two years ago, Trefloyne had just one junior member – and he was approaching his 18th birthday!

Now there are over 30, who have come through the Trefloyne Junior Golf Academy, where they get professional coaching, get out on the course and play in club competitions.

The coaching comes from Matthew Rees, to whom the Professional Golfers’ Association has now awarded the status of PGA Advanced Coach.

Matthew said: “It’s a real honour and I’d like to than all the organisations I’ve worked with – especially Trefloyne – for their help and support.”
