EACH of the three secondary schools in Whitby fielded a team of four golfers at a district tournament at Snainton Golf Centre.

Golf instructor Matt Connor welcomed the students who were put in pairs to play against other schools and colleges from the local area.

On a course made up of par three holes it was important for the students to keep their lines tight.

Sports co-ordinator Pete Woolley was helped by Eskdale teaching assistant Andrew Wood. All the students thoroughly enjoyed the experience and the glorious weather.

The teams were, Caedmon: Lewis Bradley, Josh Reegan, Alfie Swales, Corey Hart; Whitby Community College: Peri Wilson, George Hutton, Maddie Coulson, Lee Clarkson; Eskdale: Chris Hurworth, Pat Hutton, Will Richardson and Ben White.

Mr Woolley said: “It was absolutely great to get students competing at a golf competition.

“Matt Connor ensured they all had a positive experience and it was great to work with students, who not only showed good golfing ability but also an understanding of etiquette on a golf course.”
