The semi finals saw Harry Hill give Sam Clark 13 shots which proved a couple to many as Sam ran out a 3&1 winner to reach the final. The second semi was a really tight match between Parkstone’s Jonathan Naylor and Ben Small this went right down to the last with Ben winning by one. The final was between Sam Clarke and Ben Small and even though Ben was giving 14 shots Sam found the going tough and Ben ran out a worthy winner 3&1.
The Peter Alliss match play got under way on the hottest weekend of the year, the top sixteen boys were drawn and the OOM winner Steffen Foley Wareham got us under way against Oscar Perry this was an up and down battle but Steffen came out on top 2up.. Last years champion Jack Backer ran in to the in form Harry Hill Broadstone and went down 2&1. Bredan Jones beat Joshua Barton 3&2 with Sam Clarke formally Chedington beating Weymouth’s Luke Maddison 3 &1 which is the same score that the impressive Jonathan Naylor Parkstone beat the other Weymouth player Sean Dimmick by. Nathan Goulding Dudsbury saw off Rhys Card 5&4 Ben Small beat Alex Pouliase Knighton 4&3 and the final match was a real tussle between the two Georges and on the last George Davis Parkstone came out on top of Lyme’s George Seed. In the afternoon Harry Hill saw off Steffen Foley 3&1 Sam Clarke disposed off Brandon 5&4 Jonathan Naylor being Dormy Four up just managed to seal the victory with a par at the last after a remarkable fight back from Nathan Goulding and the last match could not have been closer and wasn’t settled until Ben Small chipped in for the victory on the 22nd hole.

The sun shone the wind was gentle and Parkstone Golf Course looked an absolute picture for the final round of the Peter Alliss Young Masters. The young guns were up to the challenge to try and make the top sixteen to go forward for the matchplay phase next month. The scoring was just fantastic with five players scoring 40 points three with 39 and three with 38 but topping that with a whopping 41 points was young Nathan Goulding from Dudsbury. (A handicap cut a waits). The scoring was so good the CSS went down one to 70.
Congratulations to young Steffen Foley Wareham GC who topped the Alliss Order with 116 points 4 clear of Parkstone’s Jonathan Naylor on 112 followed by Ben Small Brandon Jones and Luke Maddison all on 111.
Thanks must go to Parkstone GC for allowing us to use the course for this competition.
We now move on to Ferndown for the match play which promises to be a great weekend’s golf.
Wow what a difference five minutes make! We met for the third round of the Peter Alliss at Lyme Regis and after a heavy night’s rain it was with great credit to the green keeping staff that the event even got started. We got under way and after the first 5 groups got out it started once more to rain. It continued it’s down pour and the greens started to flood after much discussion between the Head Green keeper and myself we decided to give it five more minutes and with that the rain stopped and out came the sun and we continued the competition in windy but sunny conditions. I think all need to take a lesson from this event and ensure you always come to these events fully prepared for all eventualities! Ben small continues to impress and came home with 38 points yet again reducing his handicap. Brandon Jones Dudsbury and Luke Maddison Weymouth had 37 points, local lad David Lyon had 36 points along with Canford Daniel Hobell. It is all to play for as we move to Parkstone for the last round later this month with the top 16 going on to Ferndown for the match play phase.
On a cold but sunny day the second round of the Peter Alliss got under way at Yeovil GC. The goldf was of a good standard and some fine scores were returned with 38 points from both Harry Hill Broadstone and Nathan Goulding Dudsbury. Jonathan Naylor Parkstone had a great 39 points but best of the day with 42 points was Steffen Foley Wareham well done.Our thanks to the Yeovil GC & Members for allowing us the use of the course for this fixture.
After a three week delay we got the first round of the Peter Alliss under way at Canford School, the course was in great condition and the weather was fine with the sun shining. Scoring proved difficult this course is a very good test for all. Ben Small Broadstone and Alex Dythem Canford Magna had a good 36 points but with 38 Brandon Jones Dudsbury was the best of the day.
