Golfer Gets 1st PlaceCastell Alun student Matthew. 11, is making a name for himself in the golfing world. Matthew, a member of Clays Golf Club in Wrexham, competed in a 3 day golf camp held in July at Macdonald Portal Golf Club, Tarporley, and scored the highest number of points on his skills test and was awarded 1st place.

Matthew went on to compete at The Lee Westwood Golf Camps National Championship finals at Close House Golf Club near Newcastle where he won the under 13 age category and was crowned the overall winner of the event. He was awarded 2 trophies and as part of his prize he also won a family golf holiday for 4 people in Florida.
