Golf Tour1

Grey Golfers tour the UK
Staff members Gerrie Hills and Jason Bigara and sixteen boys had an experience of a lifetime over the holidays spending two weeks in the UK, playing on ten courses, of which five were Championship courses.
The highlight of the tour was to play the St. Andrews Links. It was a long night for some of the boys whose names were not drawn in the ballot to play and they waited from 23h00 in line to be able to put their names down to play if there were any available spaces the next day. Fortunately; all the boys got on to play and what a memorable experience for all playing at the Home of Golf.
Another of the many highlights was the final round of the tour which was played at Musselburgh Links. This is the oldest course in the world which hosted six Open Championships. In true links style all the players played the course with hickory clubs that were rented from the club. The boys and staff got into the spirit of links golf as it was played by golfers during the early days and dressed accordingly. Team manager, Jason Bigara playing in a kilt!
The Grey team played against three local teams, winning the three fixtures. They played an invitational team arranged by King’s School Canterbury at Royal Prince’s GC (links course that hosted an Open Championship in 1932) winning, 6 and a half matches to 1 and a half.
The Grey side beat Whitgift School in Croydon at The Addington Golf Club, 257 points to 222, using the Stableford format.  
The Grey side managed a very close win at Formby GC against Royal Merchant Taylor’s School winning by 5 and a half to 3 and a half matches.
The young golfers also played at Royal Liverpool in England and then moved to Scotland where they played at Royal Prestwick GC, Royal Troon, Kings Barns and The Castle course, which is one of the six courses in and around the town of St. Andrews. As well as all the course mentioned above.
