SCHOOL SPORTS 12 & UNDER GOLF

This years event was held in Newcastle, NSW. A long way for our young golfers to travel from SA. Two of our Juniors from the southeast were selected in this years team. They were Mitchell Handford from Mt Burr PS and Luke Sandford from Bordertown AS. Challenging weather conditions and a daunting field of players were too much for the SA team this time, however, Mitchell put his head down and finished 4th overall in the individual stakes with two very impressive rounds of net 69 and 71. Good Result Mitchell.
