2019 Junior Captain Reuben Bather

Reuben’s Achievements 2019

Our Junior Captain, Reuben Bather, formed part of the school’s Golf Academy team that competed at the ISGA British Schools’ Northern Open at Fleetwood Golf Club.

Reuben, a Year 11 pupil at Rydal Penrhos School, was in impressive form throughout the competition. He finished an unbelievable round with a 66 score and was crowned individual champion at the event.

Reuben was also part of the eight-team Welsh squad that took on Ireland in the annual Cardigan Trophy at Rosslare Golf Club in County Wexford in March. The scratch handicapper continued his exceptional form throughout the three day competition. It was a stunning team display which concluded with the Wales squad winning the trophy.

Junior Taster Day
On Thursday 18 April Anthony Middleton, our PGA Professional, and Jack Kelbrick, our Golf Leader, held a free Junior Taster Day at Maesdu. Jack had spent time at local schools doing fitness through golf sessions and the children were invited to attend the taster day. Anthony and Jack created a relaxed and happy atmosphere and there were a range of fun activities for everybody to enjoy plus a goodie bag from the club which included two free Junior Night sessions.
