Big day at Berkhamsted

19 June 2024
Official Parner - Mizuno

The competition is hotting up as we near the SchoolsGolf National Final, and the field at Berkamsted this week was strong as players and schools battle it out to qualify. With over fifty players and lots of schools taking part it was a big day at Berkhamsted. This is a lovely course and welcoming club and we were very pleased to return again this year. We received some lovely feedback about the day:

Reeds School: “Thank you to Berkhamsted Golf Club for hosting yesterday’s SchoolsGolf tour event – the players really enjoyed the course and food, and as alwauys Susanna did a great job running the show.

“Congratulations to Lucas TR and Kit W for picking up 1st and 2nd in the nett! And to the whole team for runners-up!”

Gordon’s School has a very strong golf offering and we are delighted that they include so many SchoolsGolf fixtures in their programme. Their team have enjoyed a very successful season and Berkhamsted continued the theme. They commented:

“Champions in both the scratch and team stableford at this week’s National Schools Golf event at Berkhamsted Golf Club, Gordons U18 team willnow have 12 golfers representing the school at the National Finals in Worplesdon in July. Oliver won the scratch competition finishing level par 71, four shots ahead of his nearest competitor and the Team Stableford was won with an average of 32.6. Congratulations all!”

The Oratory Schools fielded a strong team at Berkhamsted and we want to give them a particular shout out for bringing a mixed team. We are very keen to encourage girls to take part in our tournaments, so much so that our remaining fixture is a girls only event at Fulwell on 24th June.

The Oratory School commented: “A huge congratulations to Oratory Golf on their performance at SchoolsGolf at Berkhamsted Golf Club.”

SchoolsGolf is also committed to addressing diversity in golf and we are super pleased to be partnered with the Muslim Golf Association. They kindly sent positive feedback about their experience at the SchoolsGolf Berkhamsted invitational:

Muslim Golf Association: “Amazing venue and a well organised and fun day. Adam and Isaac both enjoyed the day and the course. Adam finishing 2nd out of 53 was a great achievement for him. I particularly like the team aspect of SchoolsGolf, which was great for the youngsters involved. We will be looking to enter teams in future events. We can’t wait to try out some of the phenomenal courses on the SchoolsGolf Tour.”
