On the afternoon of Friday, the 15th of June teachers of the Abraham Lincoln School met with the golf professionals of Casa de Campo Golf and friends of the school for a fun afternoon of golf. The format was a Florida Scramble which allowed players of all abilities to work together in a team to post the lowest possible score.

The teams and scores were as follows

6th Place – Laura Falconer (Grade 5), Joanna Bowen (Language Support), Harriet Tomaz (Music), and Colin Maclean (Physics) with a score of 76.

5th Place – Harry Magee (Head of School), John Cafferkey (Grade 4), Sharon Santana (French) with a score of 74.

4th Place – Robert Birtel (Director of Golf), Josh Tomaz (Grade 2), Jan Jan Van Welie with a score of 73.

3rd Place – Paul Sheldrake (Computing Science), Lewis Williams (Grade 3), and Josh Sims with a score of 72.

2nd Place – Alan Wood (Deputy Head of School), Leanne Percival (Art), Jan Michael Giha with a score of 71.

Champions – Ian Henderson (Grade 3), Tom Duffield and Billy Gorman also with a score of 71, though this team had the better inward nine holes.

Following the game, everyone enjoyed a Mexican buffet and drinks at the 19th hole where a trophy was presented to the winning team. Prizes were also awarded for closest the pin; Paul Sheldrake won on hole 5 with an incredible hole in one. He used his pitching wedge on the 125-yard hole. On hole 16 the winner was Laura Falconer who hit her 8 iron into a stiff wind to 10ft. In other golf events for the teachers of The Abraham Lincoln School this year Alan Wood won the Match Play competition and Colin Maclean won the coveted Links Eclectic.

The golfing afternoon acted as a “Thank you” to the Abraham Lincoln School teachers for their work throughout the year, some of whom even assist with the Jr. Golf Academy. If your kids are interested in continuing to play over the summer, see the flyer below to register. Following the upcoming summer holidays, Casa de Campo Golf and The Abraham Lincoln School look forward to another year working together. Pupils of the school will continue to attend the Junior Golf Academy, which is supported by the school’s teachers and will continue to volunteer at events such as the LAAC in January 2019.
