Golf Team on the Green – All managed to hit the green on the first as they competed in the ISGA Schools Cup.

And the teams’ coaches Mr Mathews and Mr Balmer also scooped both the teacher’s awards at the senior and junior events.

Head of Golf Mr Mathews said: “This is the first ISGA title that the school has won since starting up golf three years ago and hopefully the start of many. To say that I am proud is an understatement. The team played consistent and competitive golf and deserved their success.

“The Gordon’s golf squad is growing with another four golfers competing for the top places in the golf team. I am also delighted that our new Junior team did so well in their first ISGA tournament.”
