Hartpury Tri-Golf event a swinging success

Children from Gloucester took part in the Gloucester Primary Schools Tri-Golf Championship final under the expert guidance of Hartpury’s Golf students.

26 pupils from three primary schools - Finlay Road, Kingsholm, and Widden – made it to the final after qualifying through earlier rounds, which were also held at Hartpury.

After a great day of golfing action which saw pupils swing for cup glory in various chipping and putting challenges, all three teams performed brilliantly. Finlay Road eventually held the trophy aloft, having amassed a total score of 1550 points.

The competition was planned and run by Hartpury’s first year BTEC Golf students as part of their course, and the schools were full of praise for all of the young coaches.

Paul Johnson, Sport Lecturer at Hartpury, said: “It was a very enjoyable day and every pupil performed extremely well, as did our students.

“At Hartpury, we're really proud of the partnership work we do with schools and communities throughout Gloucestershire and beyond.

“These kind of events give our students confidence and experience and it’s so rewarding for them seeing the enjoyment the children got out of the day.”

Tri-Golf is a ‘mini’ version of golf for primary schools, which involves the use of adapted equipment and a variety of games designed to provide an enjoyable introduction to the sport.
