More Success for the Golf Academy

Golf Academy

The Golf Academy travelled to Royal Eastbourne Golf Club on Tuesday 28 March to play their last ICT fixture and left with various successes.

Our A team won the Gross competition by one shot and have been unbeaten in the Gross championships this year.

The B team won the Nett competition and Sussex Downs College came second. This means that the Itchen B team pick up their first South of England trophy and now qualify for the National finals in Leeds joining the A team.

George Saunders, who last week won the British Schools and Colleges Order of Merit, came into the final round in joint first place with a golfer from Brockenhurst College. Playing together George demonstrated his skills and won, therefore becoming the Intercollegiate Tour Order of Merit champion.

These six major trophies will be awarded to our golfers at the two national finals in May.

Mark Wheeler, head of the Golf Academy, commented, 'A wonderful season, ten trophies so far and hopefully more to come.'
