Students drive into the world of golf at Richmond Golf Club
Richmond School has been offered the opportunity to encourage 14 pupils into the world of Golf. Delivered by The Golf Foundation’s ‘GoSketch’ initiative, the programme fuses golf and design to encourage young people to access the game, developing new skills, confidence and creativity both on and off the course. The sessions are designed to make the game accessible providing an introduction to the sport, while the exciting design challenges combine to see each group creating a new team identity.
The project will conclude with all participants receiving a kit featuring their own team designs – a putter, iron and either a t-shirt or baseball cap – giving them the kit to encourage them to carry on playing. The pupils are attending Richmond Golf Club every Thursday, for six weeks, where they receive 90 minutes of coaching from Mark Robson of the Graeme Storm Golf Academy.
Mrs Carruthers, PE Teacher, said: “This is a fantastic opportunity for our students to experience a different sport and develop new skills. They are all enjoying their time at the golf club and are working very hard on their techniques. In addition, they are working extremely well together on the design aspects of the project and I can’t wait to see the team identity that they create.”
