Junior organiser Julia Line said: “You would think that I am going to wax lyrically about Harry, Rhys and Izzy’s county and national golfing achievements but they have achieved much more.

“All three are an inspiration to all the juniors and adults at the club, their dedication, the manner in which they

conduct themselves, and their generosity to other youngsters is outstanding.

“They are true ambassadors. I thank you,” she added.
