Another strong year for Myerscough F.E golfers

Published

It’s been another great year for Myerscough College’s F.E golf students, with more success on the course adding to the programme’s reputation.

Myerscough has qualified for the 2018 national finals of this season’s Intercollegiate Tour (ICT) later this month, after battling throughout a tough winter to record league titles in both the Gross and Nett leagues. The College field sides in both the ‘Gross’ (scores from scratch) and ‘Nett’ (scores with handicap added) leagues, and the students involved are all on the Level 3 BTEC Golf Studies programme.

A competitive season played against Lee Westwood Golf School and Balby Carr Academy saw Myerscough complete two league title victories securing a place at the National Finals held at Hesketh Golf Club on the 26th and 27th April. There were many standout student performances across the fixture list where each member of the team contributed.

Craig Lea is the Head PGA Advanced Golf Professional at Myerscough College and said: ‘’The competitive and highly successful coaching programme has now created league champions for the last nine years.’’

‘’Our regional season has come to a conclusion with some highly successful results.

‘’We have a proven track record over a number of years now of the programme here is working. I’m sure that in the years to come we’ll have a number of players making it big.

‘’We have an increasing reputation with the right processes in place, do things right and the success we’ve had already nationally and at county level builds awareness of what we’re about as a coaching programme.

‘’It takes time and patience – here at Myerscough it’s all about giving students the best opportunity to be the best they can be.’
