Barnham Broom’s Ladies Championship

Well done Ellie Brown for winning the Ladies Club Championship.

The semi finals were played on Sunday morning (13th July) with some amazing golf – Jo Ashmore played Ellie Brown with Ellie beating Jo. Both players round in 1 over par. Tara Davis won her match against Charlotte Presland finishing on the 17th hole.

The final against Ellie and Tara was amazing as they are both juniors (Ellie 15 Tara 16) and are the youngest players at the club to either win or be runners up as Club Champion.

The Janet Foad Trophy which is presented to the best nett score in qualifing was won by Tara Davis with a nett 71 (3 under par).Girls Champs

July’s Scheduled Works

Two weeks officially into Summer and the course is doing well. For the month of July we have got some more course maintenance panned to help improve the greens and encourage growth.

We will be Over seeding with bent grass on the Hill and Valley this month and that will be followed up with a light top dressing

Weather permitting we will continue work with the thatch away program on the greens of both courses.  This is done to removing any dead debris / thatch and encourage the bent to be allowed to grow in.

We will Pencil Solid thyne to improve and encourage better root growth on both courses. This is done by using an  8mm thyne which does not remove the core. This allows aeration into the greens and roots encouraging growth and has near zero impact onto the greens or how they roll.

Lastly if the weather plays nice we will do a light top dressing on the greens of both the Valley and the Hill throughout the month.



There were 9 changes to the top 10 following the re-arranged May Stableford played on 29th June The only non mover was Les Gardner who is still holding on to top spot. Robbie Watts has moved from 9th place in to 2nd . Jamie Black made the biggest jump – up 8 places from 13th in to 5th place. Matt Firman also entered the top 10 from 12th place.

With the July Stableford only a few days away all could change again!
