9 Schools Tee Off at Inter School Festival

25th May 2018

ECJS Beechwood were crowned the inaugural Inter Primary School Golf Champions at The Golf Club, St Pierre Park.

9 schools and 33 children took part in the glorious sunshine with each school playing a Texas Scramble format allowing each child to achieve success and contribute to their team.

With many children playing for the first time, the participating schools were invited to a training session the day before to be taught putting, chipping and pitching with PGA Professionals Andy Myers and Phil Sykes.

After 1.5 hours of play on the lush St Pierre Park course, the scores were added up and fairplay winners nominated by the volunteer coaches and professionals.

It was a near impossible task to choose 2 schools as fairplay winners with the level of enthusiasm and sportsmanship on show by the schools being extremely high.

The teams from Blanchelande and Hautes Capelles were awarded the fairplay medals by Steph and Kerri from the Sports Commission.

ECJS Beechwood were crowned overall winners with some fantastic golf played by their team.

Special thanks must go the the Ray Lowe Sporting Foundation, The Golf Club at St Pierre Park and the event sponsor, ABN Amro.
