YOUNG golfers from across Milton Keynes pitched up at Abbey Hill for the second annual MK Golf Festival.

Using Tri Golf and SNAG Golf equipment – colourful plastic clubs, Velcro targets, bean bags and baskets – children from Caroline Haslett Primary School, Newton Longville, Oxley Park, The Portfields, Stewkley and Two Mile Ash, had five minutes at a number of stations to score as many points as possible.

After two hours of golfing the Two Mile Ash team of Bella Dominique, Mia Emerton, Micheala Icney, Mathew Ward, Jack Davies and Max Davies, came out on top of the leaderboard. Newton Longville’s team – Jack James, Nikolas Batt, Hannah Whitting, Charlotte Beckley, Mia Taub and Alex Ross – finished second, while the Caroline Haslett team of Eva Gilet, Tanya Kalra, Juanita Koomson, Aman Sadiq, Harry Samme and Joe Tysoe finished third.

Gordon Forster, Abbey Hill Golf Centre general manager said: “There was some really excellent golf and beaming smiles on show.

“Robin and David have worked extremely hard with more than 50 local schools over the past two years and have had great support from all the staff, parents and the children themselves.”
