Motocaddy, the world’s leading powered golf trolley company, has been unveiled as headline sponsor of the British Junior Golf Tour (BJGT) for the 2023 season, covering more than 30 events for talented boys and girls across its nine-hole, 18-hole and Order of Merit categories from next month.
The sponsorship will see Motocaddy on-course banners at every event staged over a busy seven-month period at prestigious courses such as Woodhall Spa, Frilford Heath, Sunningdale Heath, Pyle and Kenfig and culminating in the Tour Championship at Walton Heath in October. Motocaddy branding will also be visible across the British Junior Golf Tour website, digital communications, and social media channels, with Motocaddy prizes on offer for competitors at selected events.
Offering youngsters an Approved Golf Development Programme backed by the DP World Tour, the BJGT is the leading junior golf tour in the UK with 17 years' experience of delivering fun, quality junior golf competitions for junior golfers of all abilities aged 5-18 years. Many boys and girls who have gained valuable experience on the BJGT, have gone on to represent their national teams at amateur level, while some have even filtered through to the professional ranks onto the PGA Tour, DP World Tour and the LET.
“We are really excited to have the opportunity to support junior golf and the excellent work that the BJGT team are doing to create events and playing opportunities for the stars of the future,” said Motocaddy Marketing Director, Oliver Churcher. “We’ve seen a significant increase in the number of young golfers using electric trolleys to help them play better and enjoy the game more, and we’re delighted to have the opportunity to extend our support of grassroots golf,” he added.
The BJGT provides young golfers with high-level playing opportunities both at home and abroad, including offering UK qualifying places for the largest junior golf championship in the world - the IMG Academy Junior World Championships in San Diego, California, that counts Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson and Ernie Els among its previous winners.
"The British Junior Golf Tour is delighted to welcome a global leading brand such as Motocaddy to be headline sponsor,” said Tour Director, Neil Randall. “Their support enables us to continue to provide superb playing opportunities to junior golfers, who will once again experience top venues in the UK and compete for fantastic trophies and prizes, while making new friends and cementing existing friendships. We’ve always been driven by a passion for junior golf and in 2023, we look forward to being powered by Motocaddy,” he added.
