J Williams Memorial Day - Saturday 17 September
A fantastic field of 61 players entered this, our final major of the year.
Again, the course was presented in excellent condition and the weather also contributed to provide perfect playing conditions.
Surprisingly, only four players were able to break par.
Stunning golf, by in form Paul Dimmer, secured victory with an impressive 63 closely followed by Sanjay Agarwal with 64 and Chris Kelly with 66.
This competition was the final round in the Presidents Cup, awarded for the best aggregate scores in this competition, our J Clarke Day, our Open and our Captains Day. Patrick Clasby was declared the winner.
The day was completed by a thoroughly enjoyable social gathering including a quiz, a raffle and an auction. A huge thank you to Graham Wroe and Stuart Cella.

CAPTAIN'S DAY - Saturday 9 July
Another fantastic day at Haste Hill - beautiful weather, wonderful golf followed by a lovely social evening and night.
The customary 'tipple' on the first tee box gave inspiration to most and courage to those brave enough to engage in the fun.
The display of wonderful golf, fun on the putting green, excitement of the tombola and the music and beverages all contributed to a fantastic day.
Congratulations to Amish Shah for winning the Captain's Trophy with a stunning 63.
Well done to all other prize winners and a big THANK YOU to all those who helped me make it such an enjoyable day.
Patrick Clasby, Captain.
COURSE CHAMPIONSHIP - Saturday 25 & Sunday 26 June
Our course championship, a 36 hole two day stroke play competition, is our main event of the year. A true test of golf that produces the best player in our club.
Unfortunately, torrential rain in the preceding days had caused severe damage to the course.
63 players set out on Saturday for Round 1. Scores reflected the tough playing conditions, with only three players breaking net par. Steve Brownsea, defending champion, led the gross with 71 and sharing the net with Lee Whittaker on 66.
Round 2 on Sunday saw a reduced field of 44 continuing the battle. Whilst the weather remained kind the scoring still proved difficult with only one player, Ziggy Yousaf, breaking net par with 67.
Liam Cella made a move on the back nine, drawing level with Steve Brownsea on 17 in the gross. However a par on the last gave Steve a 'back to back' victory. Liam's efforts were rewarded in securing the overall 'net' title.
After two days of great golf the results were:
Gross Champion - Ferndown Salver - Steve Brownsea
Net Champion (0-14) Ferndown Plaque - Liam Cella
Bronze Medal (15-28) - Clive Stasin
