TIFS First Golf Match

On Saturday 11th November, Ventnor Golf Club kindly hosted our first ever golf match, taking on the Combined Independents team with players from Ryde School and Priory School. Conditions were testing to say the least; it was cold and wet and the mist threatened to come down, but the Island’s junior golfers are made of stern stuff!
11 holes of matchplay resulted in the Combined Independents coming away with a 2 ½ points to ½ point victory, but the real winner was golf as the boys taking part could be seen to be encouraging each other and enjoying each other’s company throughout their rounds.
We look forward to a return fixture in the Spring, and potentially the start of an Island Schools golf league next year.
