First U15 International Golf Match
12th April, 2018
Merchiston is delighted to have boys taking part in the very first U15 International Golf Match between England and Scotland, which took place at Collingtree Park Golf Club last weekend.
The Scotland Team was made up with boys from Loretto, George Heriots and Dollar Academy and the majority of the boys are from the Golf Academy at Merchiston. Well done to Cameron, Lyle, Juan and Daniel for qualifying to be a part of the first U15 International Golf Team.
Director of Golf at Merchiston and Captain of the Scotland U15 Schoolboys’ Team, Alan Murdoch, comments: “It was a great honour for me to play a small role in the event as Captain of the Scottish U15 Schoolboys’ Team at Collingtree Park, this weekend. What a wonderful event it was and lovely to witness the camaraderie and friendship shown from both teams to one another.
Although the score (11-6) suggests a one-sided affair, it certainly was anything but! The match was very close with five games over the weekend all going to the last green. Small margins at this level really was the difference, with the English boys just that bit sharper and more precise with their shots from close in. This really was a great experience for all the boys.”
