Merchiston achieved the status of Number 1 Golf School in Scotland on Monday, for the first time in eight years. The Golf Academy team, made up of pupils Cameron, Lyle and Hynek won the Senior Scottish Schools Title at Kings Acre Golf Club.
Scoring a total of 141, a 3 shot lead over second place was enough to secure top spot for Merchiston. In the singles matches, Imran shot a score of 63 and Hynek G a score of 68 - both winning their respective competitions.
Director of Golf, Alan Murdoch, commented “Results and standings are fantastic, however, it’s how you achieve them that is the important part. The corners of our jigsaw are now in place and the foundation has been built".
"Our boys have a great work ethic and thrive in our golfing environment. Over the last eight years we have built a family network where the boys feed off one another, regardless of their age and standard. We are a very close knit group and this is a great basis to work from. The hard work starts now as we are no longer the chasers - it’s time to fill in the rest of the jigsaw!”
The Merchiston Golf Academy is now the Number 1 in the UK and Number 1 in Scotland.
