AN ANNUAL junior golfing competition took place last week between five Angus schools, despite tough conditions.

The Angus Annual Primaries Texas Scramble was held at Grange Golf Club in Monifieth last Thursday, and played on the Ashludie course.

The competition pitted Carlogie, Burnside, Woodlands, Grange and Seaview against each other as part of the National School Sports Week.

Active Schools representative Jo Whaite was full of praise for all those involved. She said: “The commitment of the Grange members who are all volunteers has been fantastic, they have been great with the children and given all concerned a really positive experience in the game of golf.

“This event gave the schools further opportunity to promote National School Sports Week highlighting both the Commonwealth and Olympic Legacy set to gather momentum towards these great events and beyond.”

The competition was eventually won by pupils from Seaview Primary School Charlie Walls, Mathew Grossett and Lawrie Mitchell with a score of 52 over the 13 holes, closely followed by Carlogie with 58 and Burnside with 60.

Grange Golf Club president Ron McDonald described the conditions as windy and added: “In testing conditions all the children played well and displayed exemplary etiquette on the course.”

The boy’s teacher at Seaview, Mrs Black said: “Seaview played very well as a team and thoroughly enjoyed their game.

“A very respectable score in spite of the wind. Both myself and the school are very proud of the boys for their achievements on the day.”
