Combining educational experiences with golfing opportunities, the World Schools Golf Challenge is open to any high school from any part of the world!
Under the direction of experienced golf tournament organisers, the student golfers will have the opportunity to test their skills on new courses against international players and, in some cases, quite different conditions to what they may be used to!
All of this will lead to the understanding of the different skill sets – physical and mental – required to develop their game to compete at a higher level should they wish to.
World Schools Golf Challenges will feature:
- Educational and cultural activities relating to the geography and culture of the chosen World Schools Golf Challenge destination.
- An optional practice round at one of the host clubs followed by a four-round stroke play tournament with both team and individual gross and nett competitions – staged in four divisions (based on handicaps) for individuals (boys and girls) with champions in each division. There will be trophies presented in all divisions and there will also be a range of prizes for teams and individuals.
Supporters and families travelling with teams will be welcomed and offered accommodation, sight-seeing and tour options.
The objectives of the Challenge are:
- To encourage participation and development of golf within high schools and the educational system.
- To assist promising high school golfers to continue to develop their skills on new courses and in friendly competition with players from throughout the golfing world.
- To provide a solid base for young golfers to plan their golfing future.
- To provide educational opportunities and experiences for students with an interest in golf.
- To promote the enjoyment and qualities of golf as a recreational alternative for students regardless of their golfing abilities.
- The World Schools Golf Challenge is a once in a life time experience for high school golfers, their coaches, teachers, families and supporters.
