Students tee off at Haigh Golf Complex
Sunday 30th March, 2014

YOUNG golfers will be putting new skills into practice at Haigh Golf Complex on Monday.

WLCT has been carrying out golf sessions over the past four weeks at Standish High School, St John Fisher High School, Winstanley College and St John Rigby College, as part of a programme funded by Sportivate.

PGA professional Alan Crompton said: “We’ve introduced the students to golf through Golf Xtreme which uses soft clubs and balls and involves playing games outside on astro pitches.

“Now, they’re ready to come over to Haigh Golf Complex to try their hand on a real golf course.”

The schools will be taking part in a team tournament on the nine hole course, which students at the colleges will compete on the 18 hole course.
