Home Countries Inter-Club Golf Championships 2014

Congratulations to Grosvenor pupil Ross Nelson, form four, who has been selected to compete at the prestigious 2014 ‘Home Countries Inter-Club Golf Championships’, to be held at Antequera Golf Club in the mountains of Andalusia, Spain, at the beginning of March.

Ross’ participation at this event comes after his successful participation as a member of the Belvior Park Golf Club Under 18 Boys’ team which achieved victory at both the Ulster and All-Ireland Fred Daly Championships during the summer of 2013.  Despite being the youngest member of the team Ross lost just one match throughout the entire competition, which ran from April to August, helping his club to first place out of approximately 240 competing teams from throughout Ireland.

This year’s Home Countries Championships is due to be broadcast on Sky Sports and will see each of the competing teams, from England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland, stay in the same hotel and attend a number of special events which have been organised throughout the week.   The competition will be attended by a large contingent from Belvoir Park as well as the Golfing Union of Ireland and promises to be a unique and special experience for Ross as well as each of his team-mates and competitors.

All within the School wish Ross the best of luck at this competition and hope to see him competing on the fairways of the likes of Augusta and St. Andrews in years to come.
