Dom Walter- European Champion!
Last week our very own junior member Dom Walter (aged 11, Handicap 8!) travelled to Craigielaw Golf Club in Scotland to compete in the US Kids European Championships. The 54 hole tournament was held over three days, with the lowest gross score taking the prize. Over 65 players from all over the world took part in the ‘Boys 11’ Category.
Dom led the event from start to finish, with GROSS ROUNDS OF 71, 73 and 72 to finish level par and win by three strokes. Dom managed to out-play the best players from the likes of America, France, Germany, South Africa and many more countries! This is a massive achievement for Dom and his family, and will be the first of many tournaments to his name!
Ben Lloyd made the trip to Scotland on the Wednesday of the event to watch his star pupil in action! We also think that his Dad, Jamie Walter, deserves a mention for his efforts in supporting his son and the hours of effort that goes on behinds the scenes!

Congratulations Dom!! Hard work pays off!!
EuroPro – Playoff that ended in a playoff!
Last Sunday we held an 18 hole play off for one elusive spot in the EuroPro event at Cumberwell. Entry was open to attached professionals and also any low handicap amateurs who fancied there chances! 8 people played off for the spot including:
John Jacobs, Alex Blewett, Alex Pike, Louis Boston, Mark Keevil, Dan Blewett, Josh Dee and James Cooper.
The event was held on the Red and Yellow Courses from the back tees; an 18 hole shoot out!! Scoring proved tough on the day, but the eventual winners after 18 (tied on the same score) were Alex Blewett and Alex Pike! One more hole was required to separate the Cumberwell boys. The 10th was selected, having both hit the ball in the sand from the tee, Alex Blewett made an unlikely birdie to pip Mr. Pike by one shot. Unlucky to Alex Pike, but Alex Blewett has won the EuroPro Spot!
