Dozens of talented teenagers are due to take part in the 2011 Avon Schools Golf Championships at the beginning of April.
Competition will be stiff, with golf handicaps ranging from 24 down to an impressive minus two. Bradley Stoke Community School will be represented by Year 10 Student, Ben Davis who currently plays off 7 and is a member at Thornbury Golf Club. He will be competing against players from Filton College, Marlwood School, Winterbourne International Academy, Bristol Grammar School and many more schools within the South Gloucestershire and Avon area.
This annual competition is open to students, male and female, under the age of 19 and still in full time education. The aim is to to have as many different schools/colleges represented in the championships as possible. This year’s event takes place at Bath Golf Course, on Monday 4th April.
Trophies will be presented to the best individual nett and gross scores of the day, as well as to the best team nett and gross scores. The best gross scoring boy and girl aged under 16 will automatically gain a place in the National U16 Schools championships (at Bolton Old Links GC, Lancs on 18th July 2011). We hope that players enjoy the event.
