19/08/2017 - Haste Hill Open
A fantastic 114 turned out for the Haste Hill Open. The greens were agin in great shape and there was great feedback from our visitors. Standard scratch was 70 which reflected a tough day on the course, though the winners didn't seem to worry about that!
Ziggy Yousaf was in great form with the putter and plotted his way to a 63, which is often the Open winning score, he duly lifted the Open Trophy. Neil Sherman also brought his big day form with him and added the Open Shield to his Club Day Shield earlier in the year. In the Scratch a chip in at the last by Kane Stone (our greenkeeper) was just enough for him to lift the Lin-Hel Cup with a 74.
Thanks to all Members who turned out to make it a great day and to our Guests from other Clubs who ensured it was a big field - thank you all.

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
