Coach's Report

Golf at St Benedict’s is considered a secondary sport which is only participated in the summer (term 1 and term 3). Golf is offered to grade’s 4-7 in the preparatory school, with a total number of thirty two boys participating in this specialised sport at Bennies.

Golf has become a very competitive sport , with structured league set up with a number of private schools around Gauteng competing. Fixtures are held once a week at a number of different golf courses which allows the boys to play in various conditions as they gain some valuable experience.

A highlight of the year is certainly the golf tour in the August holiday which is available to all St Benedict’s golfers. It is a great experience for all the boys to play in “foreign” conditions outside Gauteng.

We look forward to a successful and joyful term three.

Yours in Golf

GOLF POLICY

Golf in 2017 will be offered to all preparatory boys from grade four to grade seven.

The golf seasons will be played over two terms (January – July 2017)

Our first official trials session will be hosted on Saturday 16 January 2017 at Observatory golf club. We encourage all boys who would like to play for St Benedict’s golf to participate on the day.

Internal golf fixtures will start in February and this gives all the boys playing an extra opportunity to move up or down the ladder.  

Fixtures against other schools will commence in March 2017.

The golf tour will be hosted from Monday 8 August – Friday 12 August 2017. Boys will be selected on their performances throughout the year.
