The Golf Report 2015

Thursday 5th February saw the annual running of the school golf championships.  This year the competition was held as early as possible to prepare for the Super 8 Golf Championship taking place at St Andrews Hamilton early in March.  The conditions were perfect to start with, but the wind picked up in the afternoon which caused some high scoring. The best junior golfer at HBHS was decided with Luke Kidd (Year 9) shooting 84 which was 10 shots better than second-placed Dominic Letford (Year 9) and both boys showed the Year 10’s how to deal with windy conditions.  The senior championship this year will consist of 5 rounds, with Super 8 and the Waikato Championships deciding the outright winner.
