Strong wind from the North – causes even more of a challenge for golf event!

Another very successful International Schools Heads Masters golf
event was held at the Vale Resort on 19th and 20th July. Sponsored by ISC
Research, TIC Recruitment, Warwick Mann International, and WCBS International,
this was the sixth annual event in the UK. COBIS kindly sponsored the wine for
the event’s prize-giving dinner after the second day’s golf.
Day One was the height of the summer so far and Day Two featured
a strong wind from the North. The course played superbly, conditions
challenging on both days for different reasons. From a field of 20-plus players,
Adam Drew from Headstart International School, Phuket, Thailand was the winner
with 28 Stableford points. Runner-up was Laurie McLellan from Nanjing
International School, China. Richard
Gaskell won the Sponsors trophy easily, with a superb score of 35 points
(handicap review pending!).
The Team Prize went to Richard Gaskell (ISC Research), Martin
Skelton (late of WCL Group), Barry Searles (Egypt British International
School), and Craig Blyth (Warwick Mann International). Adam Drew scooped the
Longest Drive and Martin Skelton was Nearest-the-Pin.
One WCBS staff member, who wishes to remain anonymous, commented,
“Thank you for not mentioning where the booby prize ended up.....three balls in
the water on the same hole is a career best for me!”
The event is staged every July in the UK and is open to Heads,
Principals, Directors and senior managers from international schools. If anyone

The next overseas event will be in Bahrain in March 2017. The
next International Schools Golf Competition Day in the UK will be Wednesday
19th July 2017.
