Record junior open entry!!
Monday saw us host the Cumberwell Park Junior Open, an event that has grown really well over the last few years. Our record entry attended with 76 junior golfers taking part this year!
This year we played the event on the Blue & Yellow nines with the boys playing from the white tees and girls from the reds.
We had some notable home performances with several scores under handicap.
Firstly, we had our very own Sarah Cheverton who's harked work has started to pay off with a gross 79, 4 shots under her handicap and good enough to take the Girls Gross & Nett prizes!! Well done Sarah, a great effort!!
Secondly, we had 13 year old Joe Retford who ran extremely close in the Boys Gross & Nett sections with a brilliant gross 72 - level par - 7 under his handicap. Joe fell just one shot short of our eventual winner Tom Stagg from Salisbury & South Wilts who returned a 71 - 1 under par to win the overall event.
Other notable scores included gross 74's from Alex Jacobs & Dom Walter.
Joe Retford has hit good form bringing his handicap down from 8 to 5 this week!!
Thanks to everyone who helped out during the day, in particular Richard Body, Steve Retford & Pete Doust who all helped with starting and ball spotting.

Incredible performance from 12 year old Dom!!
Future star Dom Walter put in another great performance this week in the Boys under 18's County Championships at Marlborough. 12 year old Dom, having never played the course before opened up with a gross 75 with an exceptional performance. His 75 (3 over par) was good enough to be sitting in 3rd place after round one, just two shots back from the leader.
Dom, having piled on the pressure after his first round, stepped up to the mark again with another 75, putting him clubhouse leader until the very last group. Jamie Amore (1) from Marlborough carded a 73 to follow is 75, good enough for a 2 shot win over Dom.
Needless to say, Dom was over the moon with his performance and he certainly made some heads turn in the county, although that's partly because he is still shorter than his golf bag!! His efforts were rewarded with his handicap being cut to just 3.9.
Well done to Dom from everyone in the club, a great achievement!!
Here is a full list of results.
Alex Jacobs wins Surry Cup
Alex Jacobs took home the Surry Cup last weekend with a super gross 69, his lowest score in competition golf, returning him 43 points!
His score was good enough for a one shot win over runner up Russell Whatley who going into Sunday evening thought he's done enough, until AJ carded his score.
It was another huge entry with over 160 competitors over the weekend, so thanks again to everyone for their support and well done to those in the prizes!
