Peter Alliss Round 1
On Sunday 8th October at Ferndown Forest Golf Club
What a lovely day to start the rounds for Peter Alliss 2018. Sun was shining and it was lovely and warm and we had fifteen juniors out playing.
It was good to see a lot of new faces after so many junior girls are no longer members of the junior squad.
Thank you to Ferndown Forest for their support of junior golf in Dorset and to the catering staff for the cheesy chips.
There was some excellent golf played on a tight course, with lots of trees, ditches and bushes to devour golf balls. Rebekah Hobell managed to make it to watch and climb trees after celebrating Becky Dodd 18th birthday.
The winner was Sienna Birch with 41 points, closely followed by Erin van Reenen and Suzy Cribb on 40 points.
Thank you to Paul Williams and Martin Purchase for shepherding two groups of girls and to Steve Haesler and Gary Travers for ball spotting.
Next round is October 22nd at Crane Valley first tee 11:00. A start sheet will be sent out in the next few days.

Peter Alliss Round 2
On Sunday 22nd October at Crane Valley GC
The day started out looking promising but we had the rain on and off in sharp showers – plus there was still some of the strong breeze from the day before.
We had twelve girls playing with ages ranging from 10 – 16 and handicaps from 5 – 30.
The rain, wind and length of the course was a little too much for the younger girls but it gave them a good experience of playing on different courses.
The winner with a good 36 points was Sasha Trickett (Ferndown GC), followed by Meg Walker (Broadstone GC) with 34 points and Amy Travers (Christchurch GC) with 32 points on count back from Lauren Purchase (Broadstone GC).
No more competitions until 24th February 2018 at Broadstone GC.
We would like to thank Crane Valley GC for courtesy of the course and their hospitality in the pro shop and in the restaurant.
