Matches 2024

Sunday 28th April - Dorset Ladies 1st and 2nd Team vs Ashley Wood Men's Scratch / 1st Team and Club Team at Ashley Wood Golf Club. 

Dorset Ladies 1st & 2nd Teams took on the Ashely Wood Men’s Scratch and Club Team today. 4BBB Sunningdale format for the 1st Team, 4BBB handicap for the 2nd Team. The sunshine was on our side for the most part of the day! Both sides played off mutual tees (green tees) . Some excellent golf played from both sides. 
Ladies 1st Team had a defeat against the Scratch Men 2 1/2 - 1 1/2. Ladies 2nd Team halved with Club Team 1 1/2 - 1 1/2. 


2nd Team v Wiltshire


2nd team had their first league match of the season at home to Wiltshire at Sherborne Golf Club
In comparison to last year the weather was dramatically improved, we only had a rain deluge for 15 mins as opposed to all day!!  
As we started our foursomes in sunshine the team were looking for a win against Wiltshire, having been pipped by 1/2 point last year, but we left ourselves some work to do in the afternoon having lost our foursomes in the morning.
Our afternoon singles had mixed fortune and some tight games but it was Wiltshire who triumphed to beat us on the day.
Great effort and support, the team did themselves proud, and we look forward to our next match.

Captain's Reports 2023

Ashley Wood Men

The 2nd team have started the season with success, winning the friendly against Ashley Wood men with a convincing 2 1/2 to 1/2. The game was played with great team spirit and was valuable to show pairing for our matches.

Our first match is home at Yeovil on 25th June against Gloucestershire, which is always tough competition and we look forward to the challenge.

Then we are away to Wiltshire on 23rd July, at The Wiltshire


Gloucestershire

The 2nd team have started the SW matches in fabulous form beating
 at home 5-4. The team were at Yeovil GC on Sunday 25th June for
foursomes in the morning and singles in the afternoon.
This is always a tough match, it was played with great team spirit and support,
superb result, well done team.
Thank you to Yeovil Golf club and in particular Ros Williams for all your support.
Our next match is away against Wiltshire on 23rd July where we will be looking to
repeat our success.
The 2nd team squad is as follows:
Louise Pettitt Ferndown - Team Manager. Rebecca Martin -Broadstone. Caroline Beaumont - Sherborne. Megan Withnall - Ferndown. 

Scarlett Philips - Ferndown. Sianell White - Knighton Heath. Tries Rideout - Yeovil. Kim McKinley - Yeovil. Jacqui Bowden -Remedy
Emma Hardy - Broadstone


Our 2nd SW match this season was away to Wiltshire at the Wiltshire Golf Club.

Well I can only say the rain and wind was more like an April day than a Saturday at the end of July, typical British Summer!

The team donned their  waterproofs and off we went, a tight set of foursomes matches as the team accustomised themselves with very thick wet semi, strong winds and lashing rain and we found ourselves 2-1 down at lunch. All to play for in the afternoon.

The team partially dried out and off we went for our singles, again with very close matches, having watched a match won on 18 it was 4 all in the clubhouse with one match still playing. The team played some fantastic golf in very tough condition which we eventually lost 5-4.


However most of the squad this year are new to the team and each other and have demonstrated great team spirit and support throughout the season enabling us to beat Ashleywood men in a friendly. Prevail over Gloucestershire at home and a very close game against Wiltshire away.

I look forward to building further on the teams great efforts next season
