Golf: Staff member Dawn Jones crowned club champion at Rhos on Sea

A talented staff member at Rydal Penrhos played the “round of her life” to claim a high-profile golf competition recently.

Dawn Jones, who works as a sports coach at the school, came away with the Club Champion crown from the annual event held at Rhos on Sea Golf Club after one of the finest rounds of her career to date.

The seven handicapper recovered from a disappointing opening day to end the tournament in fine style, playing a number of exceptional strokes on her way to an overall gross of 67 to win the competition in fine style.

This result also saw her handicap drop a considerable amount, and the staff member will now be playing off six for future events thanks to her efforts in what has been a trophy laden campaign this summer.

Among her wins include the Peugeot Coronation Foursomes with partner Norma Roberts and the GUW Medal Silver and Bronze Challenge Bowl, where she achieved the lowest gross score title with an impressive score of 80.

In addition to her golfing exploits, the staff member is also a former Welsh hockey international and is currently inspiring the next generation of stars at Rydal Penrhos.

Director of Sport Allen Boyd, said: “Dawn continues to lead by example and to see her crowned club champion in the face of some very tough competition was an outstanding achievement.

“She is a valued member of the staff here at Rydal Penrhos and her success serves as a form of inspiration for our golf academy stars as they look to make their mark on the game.”
