England Golf have just launched a new Facebook Group for volunteers in golf. The group is designed to provide a forum to share experiences, learn from each other and generally discuss ideas to the grow the game.
The Category I & II Championships were played at Ashley Wood GC on a fine sunny day, the course was looking good and would prove a great test for our club Category Champions.
With a good turnout for the Category I which included our County Captain and Champion. Tom Leech led the way and had a stunning round of golf breaking the current course record by one with a fine gross 65 net 64 a score that would be hard top beat. Sam Allen Wareham hard a good try coming home with a fine net 67 to take second spot with Yeovils James Kelleher taking the third place with a fine 70.
