26 Myerscough College golf students and staff flew out to Turkey last week to work at a major PGA European Tour event.
The party spent the week providing assistance at the Turkish Airlines Open at the Regnum Carya Resort in Belek, Antalya. The group performed carry-board scoring for the players during the four rounds of the tournament, which is one of the events in the ‘Race to Dubai’ (formerly the Order of Merit), a season-long competition to crown the European Tour’s best player.
Staff and students got to rub shoulders with a host of stars from the golfing world, including tournament winner, England’s Justin Rose.

Course Leader in Golf Management at Myerscough College, Rick Daniels, said: ''This was another unique opportunity that we’re pleased to offer our students as part of their course enrichment, and it was fantastic for them to gain invaluable experience working on a major event on the PGA European Tour.’’
''The party performed admirably throughout the week and the feedback from organisers has been excellent. We’re already looking at returning next year. Every one of the students played their part and were flexible and helpful in everything they did.''
