Our strong relationship with RYA from Sweden continues where every two years the junior team from Inverness Golf Club play a friendly challenge match with their counterparts from RYA Golf Club. The location this year was in Inverness. The matches tend to be extremely friendly and highly competitive and 2016 matched up to previous encounters.
The clubs played three foursomes and 12 singles over the weekend.
The winning Inverness side was Jamie Penwright (captain), who won his 3 matches, Craig Davidson, Iona Roska, Logan Gillies, Calum Daun and Ewan Cuthbert.
This was the fifth match in the series which began in 2010. Inverness lead 4-1.
Thanks to junior convener Robert Farquhar and coaches Ian Tweedie, Robert Boardman ,Gordon Ross and Rikki Selkirk for their supervision of the team and arrangements as well as Assistant professional David Grindell for his coaching support.
Thanks also to the sponsors: Murdo Macleod for sponsoring the Junior Kit, Don Campbell from Highland Insurance Brokers and N E Hair Salon.
A special thanks to RYA Golf Club for visiting us and contributing to such a great match enjoyed by all and we look forward to 2018 in Sweden!
