Culford School pupil Josh Izod won the U12 category of the IAPS Golf Championship in Shropshire recently.

The year seven student tamed the challenging, Macdonald Hill Valley golf course and narrowly missed out of the overall championship by a single point.

Fellow pupil Henry Meadows finished an impressive third place in the U11 category.

The Shropshire-based course provided an exacting test for young players who were required to demonstrate excellent course management and distance control.

The Head of Culford’s Golf Academy and PGA Professional, Lawrence Dodd said: “The boys played with huge smiles and the resilience required in competition golf will no doubt prepare them for their future in the game. We are now starting to get used to regular golf success at the School and that really excites everyone involved.”
