News Golf Team Sponsor

We are delighted to continue our sponsorship of the West Herts Golf Club Junior Team.

The junior members reached the UK and Ireland Junior Team Golf final. The event was held in the Algarve and the team achieved a very impressive 3rd place overall.  Congratulations to team members Matt Gauntlett, Freddie Symonds, Alex Raybould, Edgar Crook, Lewis Titcombe (Capt.), Noah Peters, Lewis Slade, Zach Little and Adam Ward.

The junior team left West Herts Golf Club at 4:30am on Wednesday, 23rd January for six days of golf in the Algarve winter sunshine. There was just enough time for two practice rounds on the Alamos Course and Morgado Course before the competition began in earnest on Friday.  The event, which has been running for over 20 years, is one of the most prestigious junior team tournaments in the UK.  An arduous qualification process involving county, regional and national final culminated in eight teams from across the UK being invited to the Home Nations Final in Morgado Golf Resort near Portimao.

R. Benson provided primary sponsorship to the West Herts Golf Club Junior team which included shirts for each day of the competition. Reaching the final of this prestigious event is a major achievement for the Club and all the boys involved. We look forward to spotting their names on future European Tour scoreboards!
