Teignmouth Golf Club hosted the 2015 South Western Counties Golf Association South West Boys Championship on a rather wet and windy day. The rain did ease of later in the day, but the wind stayed with us throughout the day.
The field of fifty-three competitors played thirty-six holes in testing conditions over a course of some 6,082 yards with some testing pin positions proving an excellent test of golf.
