During the week of 11 March St Andrews International School Bangkok competed at the 2019 FOBISIA Golf Tournament in Hua Hin at Black Mountain golf course. This was the first time that we were able to take a full team of 12 golfers, 4 pupils from Primary and 8 from High School. It was a fantastic week where all of the children were outstanding ambassadors for the school; the high school pupils did a great job of looking out for the primary children and we were fortunate enough to have lots of support from our fantastic parents.
Team spirit was clear for all to see, with parents and pupils looking very smart in their STA kit and everyone made a real effort to support each other. We were complimented by a number of coaches, parents and players from other schools on how sportsmanlike and polite our team was as well as how much effort they put into their game.
One of the highlights was to be the first team to win the net (Stableford 395 points) team prize and this was extra special as it was a combination of both boy and girl scores from both campuses that clinched this for us (Pun Pun, Leely, Jida and Boom). It was also really special to see how much resilience the whole team showed. Black Mountain is a very challenging course with strong winds and extremely tough greens - this did not dampen the team’s spirits and many members were straight back out on practice areas to help them to improve for the next day.
The full team was: Bei Bei, Anisa, Martin, Jump, Mond, Ashwin, Boom, Jida, Leely, Fahsai, Pun Pun and JJ.
