“There are definitely a few holes that can throw you off – if you miss a green in the wrong spot, because it’s quite firm, it can shoot off 20 yards into the bushes, so you’ve got to stay aware of your surroundings.”

“Me and my caddie came up with a good gameplan because you don’t have to hit too many drivers out there, it’s more three woods and two irons to get it in the right positions, which I did really well today.

“It’s a great place to do it too – we’ve got the beach, the sea, the views, and today we even had the golf. It’s my first time here but it’s such a nice spot.

“Now it’s all slotting into place and it’s all going according to plan ahead of this next two weeks, then a couple of weeks off, and then the long run in.

I know that children learn best in an ethos of praise, encouragement and challenge. I cannot stress the importance of pastoral care at school and support from home to a young child’s confidence and security. Growing self esteem allows our young people to give respect, take responsibility and show confidence and tolerance.  Through a child’s journey at Derry Hill School they will become well rounded citizens of the future.

The children involved were rewarded for their efforts with a medal, banana and treats in race bags.

More than 80 people to part in the 1.5 mile run around Derry Hill School Field to raise money to buy summer outdoor equipment for the Lansdowne Hall based pre-school.

One of the organisers Steve Fream from Events Logic said: “It was a great afternoon and the children had a fantastic time.

I hope you find the information on our website helpful.  It aims to give you an insight into our wonderful school and the amazing things that we do.  We offer tours to interested parents throughout the year, which you may book through the school office.

However, following some work on the practice ground, he has been showing his class again of late, with top ten finishes in each of his last two events helping him close the gap between him and leader Romain Langasque to less than 5,000 points – and Smith is ultimately hoping to overtake his French rival.

“I missed two cuts in a row,” he said. “But then I got to work with my coach, on a few technical things, which I was doing over those two weeks and which is why I didn’t play so good.

Ms Rayvault said the pre-school is now busy thinking about the next event which will be something for parents to enjoy.

“I’ve really, really enjoyed this season. I got off to a nice start, which really helps – it meant I got into all the tournaments and could plan my schedule, so I was taking a week off, then playing three weeks, and keep myself fresh.

“I’m definitely happy with that,” said the 23 year old. “I played some really good stuff, the putter was really steady on the front nine and then got really hot on the back nine.

Smith won the second event on the Road to Oman, the Red Sea Egyptian Challenge, and has since been consistently towards the top of the Rankings, though two missed cuts at the end of July gave him pause for thought.

She said: “As our first fun run it went really well, and we are looking to make it annual event and perhaps develop it into a triathlon."

“I’m definitely aiming to win the Road to Oman Rankings, that’s the aim now. I’m up in second again, but I don’t have a number of points in mind, it depends what Langasque does really, but I’ll just keep going and do my best.”

Rub-A-Dub deputy manager Maggie Raybould said the charity run pre-school hopes to have raised £380 from the event after sponsorship money and donations from the day are counted up.

Bowood's Smith was playing on the EuroPro Tour this time last year – ultimately topping the rankings to earn a spot on the European Challenge Tour for this season – and he was pleased with the start he made on his first visit to picturesque Pléneuf.
