Loretto’™s golf triumph

Scotland’s Loretto Golf Academy dominate the Desert Springs European Schools Golf Team Championships 2014

The Loretto Golf Academy has won the inaugural Desert Springs European Schools Team Championships in the Almeria region of south-east Spain held on 16/17/18 February.

The competition, organised jointly by the exclusive Desert Springs Golf resort and Millfield School, was an open event to all schools in the UK, and attracted a total of 19 teams of four players from schools such as Wellington, Bradfield, Reeds, Durham and hosts Millfield.

Loretto finished first and second in a very close final day, with 16-year-old John-Paul Ralph from Prenton in Cheshire winning the individual gross and net with a level par final round in a very strong field with handicaps ranging from +3.

Rick Valentine, Director of Golf at Loretto, said: “It was a fantastic way to start the season, rewarding the players for all the hard work through the winter. This new event is a great addition to our tournament schedule.”
