Charley selected to Wales U16 Golf squad
August 3, 2021

Rydal Penrhos pupil Charley Simpson has been selected to the Wales U16 Golf squad for a prestigious upcoming event.

One of the stars of Rydal Penrhos’ Golf Academy has earned a well-deserved selection to a national squad for an international tournament in the coming weeks.

Charley Simpson, who will be entering Year 12 in September, has been chosen to represent Wales at U16 level at the Boys’ Quadrangular competition, which takes place at Donabate Golf Club in Ireland from August 22-24.

The pupil is part of a six-strong Welsh team for the competition, which will see them take on Scotland, Ireland and the Netherlands during what is sure to be another fantastic experience for Charley against some top opposition.

Upon arriving at the course, Charley and his Wales teammates will get the chance to participate in a practice round to familiarise themselves with the challenges that lie ahead, before competing in foursomes and singles matches when the real action gets underway.

Accompanying them will be two of their Wales Golf coaches and their mindset coach. Hopefully, COVID-19 restrictions won’t get in the way of the team travelling later this month, with Charley also selected to last year’s event before it was cancelled.

This is the latest in a series of notable achievements for Charley, who is regarded as one of the brightest young talents in the country.

His golfing exploits have come with some well-deserved recognition both regionally and on the national stage. Charley was junior captain at Rhos on Sea Golf Club and also turned in a high-quality performance at the recent Welsh Boys’ Strokeplay Championships on his way to second-place at Cardiff Golf Club.

Charley recently signed a deal with Pro Dream USA, which helps young golfers from across the world connect with the best universities in the United States, supporting them throughout the strenuous process to fulfil academic and sporting potential.

A huge well done to Charley on making the Welsh squad. We wish them the best of luck at the Quadrangular tournament.
