Culford’s young golfers have been competing on a county and national level, entering both the West Suffolk Schools Championship and the England Schools Team Championship, with both the team and individuals receiving recognition for their play. At the West Suffolk Schools Championship, held at Haverhill Golf Club, Culford golfers dominated the team and handicap divisions of the tournament, despite the blustery and damp conditions. The Culford teams scooped 1st and 2nd place in the team tournament, with individual prizes awarded to Thomas Howard (F4) and Max Whittaker (U5) for their stand out performances. Pupils then focussed on the England Schools Team Championship, to represent Culford in the school’s first national golf final. Travelling to the Woodhall Spa Golf Club in Lincolnshire, the base of ‘England Golf’, the team finished tied 8th out of 34 teams. Fourth Former William Kibbler produced outstanding gameplay, tying the winning individual score but narrowly missing out on the title due to the winner scoring a better back 9. Lawrence Dodd, PGA Professional and Director of Golf at Culford, said: “All of our golfers gained invaluable experience on a tough championship standard golf course and are keen to better that performance next year.”
