Golfing rising star Ellie Mae is the Girls Junior County Champion

We always like to celebrate the sporting successes our students achieve at school, but we are equally impressed with what they achieve out of school as this shows the dedication they have for their chosen sport.

Year 10 student Ellie Mae Horsted is certainly a rising star in the golfing world and we were delighted that she has been crowned Lincolnshire Girls Junior Country Champion.

In the county competition, which was held at Boston Golf Club she recorded an incredible gross score of 168 over 36 holes. This was 3 shots clear of her nearest competitor who was the Under 18 category winner.

This is an amazing achievement, but not surprising as she has been one of the stand-out young players at the Woodhall Spa Golf Club where she is a member.

Ellie Mae will be competing in the National Women’s Medal Final later this year after another success in the Midland North Region Final where she finished 4th place despite playing off a far lower handicap (and only one Stableford point off from finishing 2nd). We wish Ellie Mae all the success in this competition.

When Ellie Mae is not winning competitions, she is also helping inspire the next generation of young golfers. Both Ellie Mae and her sister Emily Grace Horsted who is in Year 13 and plays off an impressive handicap, went to Giles Academy this week where both students were part of the team to deliver a Golfway Secondary School ‘Unleash Your Drive Activator’ for The Golf Foundation.

The workshop was designed to train coaches, teachers and young leaders so they can deliver golfing sessions in secondary schools with the aim of inspiring the next generation to get involved in the game.
