The Cyprus National Junior Golf Team U18 competed in the Malta Junior Open which took place at the Royal Malta Golf Club last week.
The delegation led by Cyprus Golf Federation’s Junior Golf Director Terry Holt was among eleven teams that took part in the competition.
The Malta Junior Open is part of the junior calendar of the European Golf Association. It was played in an individual medal stroke play format in a three-day event over 54 holes.
Nikolas Pitiris finished 24th and registered the best performance among the Cypriot golfers.
According to Holt, the team’s primary objectives were to gain international tournament experience, to promote junior golf in Cyprus and to raise awareness for next year’s N Severis Youth Open, the flagship international junior competition of the Cyprus Golf Federation.
The team will also participate in the annual Friendship Cup between Cyprus and Greece in June and will spend a week in U.K. for training and competitions in August while travelling to Greece for the Hellenic International Junior Golf Championship later in the same month. In October the team will be in Israel for the Israel Junior Open.
