Approximately 50 young participants took part in Irvine's Golf Academy's second annual Drive, Chip and Putt Tournament last Thursday, at Mt Irvine golf course, Tobago. The competition featured participants from the academy, pre-schools and primary schools.
Cherisia Irvine, head coach and manager, Irvine Golf Academy, said this year's tournament was better than the inaugural event.
Competing schools included Signal Hill Primary School, Pentecostal Light and Life Primary School, Whim Anglican Primary School. Golden Lane Government Primary school, Harmon's SDA Primary School and St Nicholas Private Primary School.
Pre-schools taking part included Bright Gems Pre School, Dorcas Hope Pre School. Little Jewels Pre School and Little White Diamond. All pre-school students were given medals of participation.
Irvine, who runs a golf programme at several schools, said it was not difficult getting them on board for the tournament.
