Children ‘Tri-Golf’ at Festival Event

30th May 2018

On Friday 25th May the Guernsey Sports Commission hosted a Tri Golf Festival open to children in Year for the 6th year in a row.

The Appleby sponsored event encouraged children who had previously experienced the sport in the PE in Schools programme to attend the festival give golf another go. 23 children from 8 different schools took up the free opportunity and a number of children have already taken the next step to playing in the community.

Group Partner, Alison MacKrill explained why Appleby chose to support this event. "We are proud to be involved with the Tri Golf Festival. Appleby have sponsored the L'Ancresse Open and the Ladies Pairs competition at La Grande Mare for a number of years. Having the opportunity to work with the Guernsey Sports Commission to support and encourage school to try golf, have fun and hopefully take up the game is another key part of Appleby's involvement with golf development in Guernsey."

Overall winners were Ireland | Sam B, Brayden and Yannick

Fair Play winners were England | Chloe, Ellie-Mae, Riley and Thomas P and Sweden | Jack W, Aaron and Nirav
