Ross Earnshaw was one of the first Juniors to be taught by Andrew here at York Golf Range. He went on to win local competitions and play for the county.
“When my family moved here from Manchester we went to the designer outlet (at McArthur Glen) and I met Andrew Smith, the professional from York Driving Range". “He told me about the junior coaching there and I have been with him ever since.”
Ross is now playing golf professionally in America having gained a golf scholarship at Post University Connecticut.
Alex Bonfield started on Andrews YMG course as a 6 year old and he continues as her golf coach today. She has had a great year as a member of Fulford Golf Club - Alex won four of the Junior Majors, the Spring Cup, Hessay Cup, Ebor Trophy and John Norris Trophy, and came 2nd in the Captains’ Junior Day and 3rd in the Junior Putter. She also represented the club in friendly and league matches, won a number of junior Stableford competitions, and was also invited to play at Royal Birkdale Golf Club as part of a reciprocal friendly match.
At the beginning of the year her handicap was 34.1, by 30 September it had dropped to 13.3.
As a result of this handicap reduction, the Yorkshire Ladies County Golf Association awarded her the Jean Rudgard Memorial Award for 2017, for the most improved Junior girl golfer in Yorkshire.
