On a challenging day for golf with a strong blustery wind, the Old Culfordians did their best against a hugely talented group of pupil golfers but had to admit defeat. It is a tribute to the school’s golf programme that pupils were giving shots to the OCs in almost every match. The team captain Tom who has joined Culford in the Sixth Form for the golf programme is a scratch golfer but he had to play to 4 under par to win his match. This sort of resolute playing typified the OCs effort. It was also super to see a young lady golfer join the team, play off the same tees as her male team-mates but still knock the ball past them regularly off the tee. Unsurprisingly, Georgia Parker won her match!

The overall result was a resounding 6 matches to 3 win for the current pupils. In the concurrent OCs Stableford competition, four players could only be separated by count-back as they all scored the same. Ed Daniels - the oldest participating OC ended up winning with Louis Clark (the youngest OC) coming second and Jon Herd in third place.
Above all the winner on the day was golf and the promise in the golfing programme at Culford with everyone enjoying the day, the courtesy of the pupils and the spirit of Culford sport and golf.
