A young golfer from Chorleywood who has been a golfing since the age of nine has had a summer on the green which she will never forget.
Ellie Farwell, a member of a Northwood golf club, made her stamp across county, regional and national competitions, which led to her captaining a girls’ team for England.
Speaking about her biggest achievement, the St Clement Danes student said: “To be selected for the England team I had to play well through three qualifying rounds (county, regional, national), on difficult courses that tested my weaknesses and strengths in the game.
“To then be picked as captain and lead the England Schools to victory against Wales was amazing.”
Ellie, who is prioritising her A-levels next year, can’t compete in the competition for that reason, but is hoping to add to her impressive portfolio when she can.
From May to September this year, she was crowned the Beaconsfield Club Champion, South East England Schools champion, captain of an England girls’ team and Sandy Lodge Juniors, third best girl in Hertfordshire County Championship and runner up in the Hertfordshire Ladies County Championship.
After her A-levels, Ellie is planning on studying sports science at university and get her PGA pro card.
“This year, I’ve proved to others around me and more importantly myself that the work I’ve put in has had a massive improvement on my game, so I look forward to next season and my future in golf,” added Ellie.
