THE King’s Ely Golf Academy has qualified for the Independent Schools Golf Association (ISGA) National Plate Finals.
King’s Ely Senior students Tom Stiff and David Harris, and King’s Ely Junior pupil Paul Collington, competed in the finals of the Regional Knockout at Elton Furze Golf Club, near Peterborough, on May 24th.
The team beat Oakham School at the event, meaning they qualified for the ISGA National Plate Finals being held at Collingtree Park Golf Club in Northampton on June 25th.
On May 21st, Paul and fellow King’s Ely Junior pupil Ben Collier also competed at the ISGA Junior Stableford, held at Sunningdale Heath Golf Club. Ben won the individual Net Prize on the day and the pair came second overall.
These latest golfing achievements come just weeks after Paul won the prestigious Wellington College Silver Salver Team Nett Prize. Ben won the Nett Division on the day and fellow Golf Academy member, Thomas Jackson, claimed second in the Individual Division.
Golf is a popular choice of sport at King’s Ely, and as a school we firmly believe that students of all abilities should enjoy a wide a range of sporting experiences, whilst at the same time making the most of every opportunity to excel.
