Golf Bubble a ‘Hit’ at Family Fun Day

The Ray Lowe Sporting Foundation’s Golf Bubble was put to good use on Saturday 8th September, as it was used by many young people trying the sport out for the first time at the Guernsey Sports Commission’s Family Fun Day held at Saumarez Park.

The Operations Director of the Commission estimated close to 1,000 people took part in the 12+ sports available on the day, which was basked in sunshine for the afternoon of activities. It was estimated that 100 children tried golf, many of whom were picking up a club for the first time.

The Junior Golf Development Officer was on hand throughout to supervise the junior players who generously gave up their time to help run the activities. These included James Troop, Daniel Troop, Max Raffray, Tanner Austin and James Falla. We must also say a big thank you to Graham Falla and Mick Marley who also gave up their Saturday afternoon to ensure Golf was on offer that afternoon.

Cameron Stewart, the assistant Pro from La Grande Mare Golf Club, also attended to offer his experience and knowledge of the game. If you didn’t manage to get Saumarez Park last weekend and want to try golf for yourself visit for further information.
