Queensferry High School has scored a par-fect win after taking the Edinburgh High School golf title on the very first occasion it entered the competition.

Sponsored by the Stephen Gallacher Foundation, the contest follows several years of encouraging pupils’ participation in the Clubgolf programme at Dundas Parks and at the school during the winter months.

In the scratch division, Mark Napier was second overall and Claire Forrester finished second in the handicap division.

Claire Forrester, Lewis Johnson and Kerr Bryant were also selected to play for Edinburgh Schools v East Lothian. And Mark Napier went on to play in the Scottish Schools Championship and was selected for Scottish Schools to play England.

Kayleigh Singer, who was also part of the team, is now junior ladies champion at Dundas Parks Golf Club.

Kayleigh was given the honour of delivering the Ryder Cup to Gleneagles.

Heather Darling, the active schools co-ordinator for Queensferry High School and cluster primaries, has been instrumental in securing participation in golf for beginners and for the more advanced members of the team.
