Under 14's v Devon 16 Aug 07- Tiverton GC

Result: Dorset 6 Devon 3

Match report: A very good result considering most of the boys hadn?t played the course before. Harry Mitchell after being 2 down after 10 birdied 4 of the next 7 to win.  Fraser?s attitude was very good as he was 6 down with 7 to play but battled on and only lost 3/2 in the end. I was pleased that Jordan Howlett won a singles match and he played very well considering he is going through many swing changes.

All in all, there were a lot of positives to come out of the match especially in the way all the boys helped each other in the foursomes and it was a good way to end the year.

Dorset County Golf Union - Cyril Nash Memorial Trophy

Wareham GC 3 August 2007

winnerOn a glorious summers day Dudsbury Golf Club cleaned up at the Inter-club Cyril Nash Memorial Trophy competition.  Nine clubs from within Dorset entered teams (lets try making it more next year) a total of 50 boys took part in the stableford competition with some fine play on a well presented course.  First club house leader was Ben Lenton from Knighton Heath a great score of 39 points followed shortly by team mate Zak Williamson with 38 and these two led the way for some time until the late starters from Dudsbury started to come in. First was Steve Fuggart 38 points having been honest enough to ask for a ruling that cost him two shots. He was followed by Luke Savill with 39, but then the best was stillTom Rickman to come as Tom Rickman amassed a total of 44 points to take the trophy closely followed in by young Tom Parsons with 39 points pinching second place on count back. (Handicap cuts are on there way.) These two late comers also gave Dudsbury B the team trophy with a stunning 112 points from Dudsbury A on 108 closly followed by Knighton Heath on 106.
