Hampton’s golfers took to the fairways in the annual Richmond Schools’ Golf Tournament.

On a beautiful afternoon at Fulwell Golf Club, 48 golfers from eight schools across the local area competed in the event, which ranged from the more experienced senior golfers playing 9 holes stableford with handicaps to the juniors playing 5 holes stroke play.

Hamptonians made the most of the perfect golfing conditions on the 18-hole, par 71 full-length course, and there were some strong individual performances across the day. First Year Hamptonians Ethan Roberts and Benedict Butterfield finished second and third respectively in the 5-hole Junior tees competition, whilst classmate Oliver Khaksar secured second place in the 9-hole (Year 7 and 8) competition, a fantastic achievement for a First Year pupil. Third Year Hamptonian Richard Page also had a successful day out on the greens to finish third in the Senior 9-hole competition.

Mrs Sophie May, who organises the golf provision at Hampton, was delighted with the success of the event:

We were thrilled to see so many golfers taking part, especially from the younger year groups. This bodes very well for future golf teams at Hampton, and indeed nationally. For many players in the junior-tee 5-hole competition, this was their first time competing on a full-length golf course. They conducted themselves impeccably and handed in some really impressive scores. Well done to all!
