The event, which is sponsored by ISC ResearchTIC RecruitmentWarwick Mann InternationalWCBS International and COBIS (who sponsor the wine), marked the fifth year of the international golfing tournament held in the UK.

This year, yet again, the golfers enjoyed fine weather and the courses played superbly. From a field of nearly 30 players, the winner was John Gwyn Jones from Panyathip International School, Laos with 30 Stableford points. Runner-up was Peter Barnard from Braeburn Mombasa International School, Kenya. Craig Blyth from Warwick Mann won the Sponsors trophy.

The Team Prize went to John Gwyn Jones, Ian Morris from International School of Havana, Ian Rysdale from Global Schools Management and Andrew Seward from Warwick Mann International. Sir Gareth Edwards, a Welsh rugby legend, joined the group for early evening refreshments, presented the Team prize and gave an insight into his playing days versus the modern professional era which was greatly valued by the golfers. We would like to congratulate the winners and all those who took part.

Head Teachers and Directors of International schools from all over the world attended and although there were a few drop out at the last minute the event was well attended. This years event featured participants from Cuba, Peru, Nigeria, Dubai, Oman, Thailand, KL, Switzerland, Saudi Arabia, Egypt and many other locations so it proved a good event for people to catch up with old friends and meet new ones.

In unbelievably good weather conditions the players teed off on the Lakes coarse and once again there was a mixed bag of play to say the least! Once again the event was won by John Gwyn Jones headteacher of St Christopher's School in Penang with the runner up Rob Jones headteacher of Colegio EuroAmericano Peru. There were individual prizes for longest drive, eventually won by Richard Phillips from Hong Kong and nearest the pin, eventually won by Chris Vis from Oman.
