Golfing Union of Ireland Coaching Programme

Congratulations to Grosvenor Grammar School golfer Ross Nelson who has been selected to compete in the Connacht Under 15 Boys’ Amateur Open Golf Championship at Roscommon Golf Club on Thursday 21st June.  Ross’ selection to participate in this event comes after he received coaching from the Golfing Union of Ireland Ulster Branch during the winter and will be followed by involvement in the Ulster, Munster and Leinster Under 15 Championships throughout the summer.

As part of Ross’ elite training programme with the G.U.I. he received the opportunity to attend a coaching ‘away day’ to Castlerock in April, where he finished his round on a high note by achieving a hole-in-one at the final hole!  Even more remarkable is the fact that Ross’ hole-in-one was the second of his career – the first coming when he was just 8 years old!

Well done to Ross on his superb Golfing success and we look forward to seeing him on the fairways of Augusta and St. Andrews before long!
