Fenland children take part in Sport England initiative Tri-Golf

MORE than 200 primary school children tried chipping, putting and driving for the first time at the Priory Golf Centre.

As part of an England Golf and Sport England initiative, the children played Tri-Golf, a mini version of golf designed for young people at infant, primary and junior schools to tempt them to take up the sport.

Sports Leaders from Neale-Wade and Sir Harry Smith Community Colleges were on hand to stear the pupils through different skill stations using specially adapted equipment.

A spokesman said: “All pupils were enthusiastic about the experience and they had a very enjoyabble time and went away wanting to play more.

“A special thanks must go to John at the Priory Golf Centre, March, for allowing us to use the facilities for the morning.”
