Wokingham Tri-Golf

9th May 2017

On Tuesday 9th May, the Year 3/4 Tri-Golf team travelled on the school minibus, with Mr Childs driving, to Sand Martins Golf Club. After having 83 attendees at the lunchtime trials, the 5 boys and 5 girls selected were excited to showcase their golf skills in front of a large parent crowd gathered at the club. The competition consisted of 9 rotations, with each station testing different elements of their chipping, putting and driving skill-set. Shinfield started strongly and began to build up their points during the 5 minute timed stations. Upon concluding the final station, all the children from the 10 schools sat down in front of the Deputy Major and his wife to hear the results announced by the Club Pro. To the delight of Mr Lappin, Shinfield St. Mary’s were announced as winners of the competition with a record number of points – the most any school had ever scored in the history of the Wokingham competition.
