Future Ryder Cup hopefuls from Barnfields, Berkswich, Leasowes and Oakridge Primary Schools came together for a Golf Festival at Brocton Hall Golf Club on Tuesday, (23rd October), run by Head Teaching Professional and County Academy Coach Jon Watts.
Pupils had all had three hours of coaching beforehand and the Golf Festival was a culmination and celebration of this.
Pupils were divided into teams named after famous golfers; so teams Ballesteros, Team Tiger and Luke Donald all competed in driving, chipping and putting competitions. In a very close finish Team Tiger emerged as overall winners.
“It was great to see both boys and girls enjoying the different aspects of golf and being able to come to Brocton Hall for their Festival “commented Walton High School Sport Co-ordinator Mary Robertson.
The event was assisted by Brocton Hall Junior Organiser Christine Davies, Dave Allen, Jon Parkes, Dave Thomas and Mr Stanley (attached to Leasowes).
Junior golf coaching is available at Brocton Hall Golf Club. Development groups run on Saturday’s in term time.
Just £60 for 12 weeks coaching in association with the Golf Foundation. No prior experience or equipment needed!
A FREE week trial can be booked by contacting email@example.com or calling 01785 661 485.
