Golfing teens compete for Baylis Cup

Boys and girls from eight Royal Borough schools competed for the Baylis Cup in a golfing tournament.


Forty young people aged between 12 and 18 took part in the day at Maidenhead Golf Club in Shoppenhangers Road, Larchfield, on Thursday, July 3.

Junior development officer Alan Sweet said: "There were some promising golfers taking part."

A mixed team from Burnham Grammar School, in Hogfair Lane, won the cup with 89 points and the boys from The Windsor Boys' School in Maidenhead Road, Windsor, came second place with 85 points.

It was the fourth year of the Baylis Cup competition, held by the club to encourage young people to play the game and supported by the Louis Baylis (Maidenhead Advertiser) Charitable Trust which owns the Maidenhead Advertiser.

Girls from Newlands Girls' School in Farm Road also had an introduction golf session run by assistant professional of the club, Vicki Harris.
