Dorset v Royal Navy 27 July 2008

Result: Dorset 7 Navy 6

A fixture which has been played annually since the 70's between the County first team select and The Royal Navy was played at Rushmore Park on Sunday. It was a glorious, sunny day with some great golf and a good result for the Dorset men.

The foursomes, spearheaded by a Hector and Clark win, set the ball rolling nicely,followed up with an exceptional 7/6 win for Hannaford and Wood.

The afternoon singles resulted in 6 matches finishing on the 18th, the Royal Navy fought back to reduce the deficit, however Jay Coshan brought home a 6/5 victory to ensure the match went in Dorsets favour. We look forward to meeting the Navy team at Weymouth in 2009

Dorset v Surrey 06 July 2008

Result: Dorset 1½ Surrey 10½

Dorset played a strong Surrey side at Effingham Golf Club which was used last week as an Open Qualifying Course. Hence the greens were fast and treacherous and the rough extremely long and punishing.  The overall result was disappointing as through nine holes in both morning and afternoon we were up in more matches than Surrey. However Surrey consistently hit the quality shots when under pressure and we consistently hit poor shots putting ourselves under even more pressure. The players did try their best and nobody gave up battling until the very end but overall Surrey was the better side!

Dorset v Kent 22 June 2008

Result: Dorset 5 Kent 7

Ferndown Golf Club was at its best on Sunday for the South East League Match.  After Dorset’s successes at the SW Championships hopes were high of continuing the momentum. As it turned out, the morning foursomes proved to be the pivotal stage of the game. A number of the Dorset players got off to slow starts against some great golf from the Kent men. One win came from the Walker/Cook partnership which gave us some hope going into the afternoon singles.
