Prep Schools’ Golf Tournament

On Sunday we had four boys representing Elstree in the Prep School’s Golf tournament at Bradfield College Golf Club. It was a beautiful sunny afternoon and the course was in excellent condition, although the rough was very long and boys were advised beforehand to keep out of it as much as possible. There were five schools taking part this year, Bishopsgate, St.Andrews , Pinewood, Thorngrove and Elstree. We entered two U13 teams, consisting of Arthur, our captain of Golf, Hamish, Harry and Lachlan.

Our boys played incredibly well against some very tough opposition. Their driving, pitching and putting skills were hugely impressive and I really hope all these boys will continue with their Golf in the future as they are all talented golfers for their age.

Not only that, but all four Elstree boys were excellent company and very good ambassadors for the school. I was very proud of the way they conducted themselves both on and off the course.

The standard of play from all the those playing was particularly high and the boys from Bishopsgate School were the overall winners of the tournament this year. Hamish however, took second place in the “Longest Drive” with his first ball of the match, and he also secured the “Nearest the Pin” trophy with a drive that landed less than a metre from the hole!

I would like to thank Bradfield College for hosting such a fun competition and for providing everyone with a delicious tea afterwards. I would also like to say thank you to the Elstree parents who very kindly supported the team and helped to score, and caddied for their son too!
