Mount Airy Country Club has been involved in some highly competitive tournaments this summer. A portion of the first-ever Surry County Junior Golf Championship earlier in July was held at the club, while the MACC hosted its annual Member/Member Golf Tournament in early June.

Now, it was the young golfers’ turn to compete. MACC held its annual Junior Club Championship earlier this week and crowned a winner in the 9-10 age group as well as the 14-16 age group.

Participants in the 9-10 age group played nine holes on both Monday and Tuesday for a total of 1,250 yards.

Kyson Jenkins came out on top in the 9-10 age group with a two day total of 49-51 for an overall 100. Carter McPeak finished second, with a two-day total of 53-56 for an aggregate 109.

Competitors in the 14-16 age group played 18 holes each day from the adult tees, measuring 6,245 yards. Austin Smith had the best score each day, 74 and 77, for an overall 151. Behind Smith was Kolby Jenkins who totalled 84-83 — 167.

Ethan Watson began the tournament with a 98 score, but improved by 14 strokes on day two to finish at 182. Blake Umstead was next with a two day total of 107-105 — 212, followed by Carson Francis with a score of 116-107 — 223.
