GDST Girls’ Open Golf Tournament


On Thursday 29 June, the fifth GDST Girls’ Open Golf Tournament was held at Swinley Forest Golf Club near Ascot. 

Swinley Forest is a world famous course, and was recently listed in an American golf publication as one of the top 100 courses outside the USA.

Ten players competed from six GDST schools, with Northwood College entering for the first time.  It was a stableford competition and after 18 holes Riya Chandaria from Year 8 had scored 36 points for her round of 91.  This score secured her 2nd place overall but in addition she won the trophy for best gross score of the day.  This was a tremendous achievement for someone so young and in her first time playing at the tournament.  Well done, Riya!
