Drive, Chip and Putt is a fun and free youth golf development initiative for junior golfers of all skill and ability levels, aimed at sparking a lifelong interest in the game. It is a competition that tests the three fundamental skills of golf: driving, chipping, and putting. Local qualifiers are typically held throughout May, June, and July. Due to coronavirus complications the 2020 national finals competition has been postponed into April this year so we will keep you updated on scheduling as it comes out.
