Overcast, wet conditions didn't dampen the enthusiasm of the juniors, with impressive scores recorded across the board.

Major winners of the Kyogle Junior Open Day green jackets were Maddie Trew and Alex Hunt, both representing Murwillumbah.

The Kyogle club thanked all the junior golfers and parents from across the region who braved the conditions.

Thanks were also given to the supporters and helpers on the day, including Scarborough's for donating the green jackets again this year, Kyogle Quality Meats and Dave's Bakehouse.

Grahams Concrete and Brown and Hurley donated prizes, so everyone left happy.

The cadets are now coordinated by Malcolm Wallis and Melissa Howlett, who are looking for people to assist on Sundays from 9am to 11am during school terms.

The club is developing a fun and interesting program for juniors and would love to see new recruits.
