Scottish Golf chair Eleanor Cannon says the organisation must make changes to attract nongolfers. Following chief executive Blane Dodds’ resignation and move to Tennis Scotland, and ahead of a national conference, Cannon said: ‘I think that it is an incredibly important moment for golf in Scotland.’ Cannon told BBC Scotland before a summit in Edinburgh: ‘The game is in decline and we want to grow stronger clubs and we want to attract people to play golf once more. ‘We only have 14 per cent of our members are female. We’re not far off 50 per cent of the working population being female so we really need to bring change into the game such that we attract non-golfers.’ Scottish professional and former Open champion Paul Lawrie recently urged clubs to reduce the price of golf, and prior to his departure and against a backdrop of a potential budget cut of around ÂŁ400,000, Dodds proposed raising an extra ÂŁ4million in revenue to help grow amateur golf through clubs. Suggested measures included raising the annual fees accrued from club members from ÂŁ11.25 to ÂŁ24 and the introduction of a new international tax for overseas visitors playing in Scotland. ‘We’ve listened, it was always a period of consultation,’ said interim chief executive Cannon. ‘We need to get this right and we need to help clubs and members understand what the very real issues are because what we’ve realised is the urgency of the situation. ‘The funding from government has dropped quite significantly and sure, there are options as to how we can address that funding drop and part of that is reducing the services that Scottish Golf offers. ‘But, we’re not about to come up with a random figure that says, this is what we’re going to put affiliation fee to. The purpose of the summit is to say to our audience and to work with them to say, “What would you like from us to address these challenges? Because we’re all in this together. What would you like from us and we will cost thatâ€?. ‘And if that means we cut back services, then we will do that but if we cut back services we will only accelerate the decline.’

Tommy, who lived in Jersey, played for Great Britain and Ireland in the 1975 and 1977 tournaments, both of which were won by the United States.

PGA chief executive Robert Maxfield said: ‘Despite his success at the game’s highest level, Tommy was first and foremost a PGA professional ‘He flew the flag for the association at every opportunity, especially during his year as captain.

Tommy Horton: ‘Flew the flag for the PGA’

He also won four European Tour events and 23 events on the European Seniors Tour, where he was very successful, topping its money list in 1993 and a further four times between 1996 and 1999.

Former Ryder Cup golfer Tommy Horton has died at the age of 76.

Tommy was taken ill at the Royal Jersey Golf Club and died shortly after in hospital.

‘The days when club professionals like Tommy could excel on the Tour are long gone but he never lived in the past and was always mindful of the game’s future.’

DISABILITY EVENT Public ‘do not ON NATIONAL LIST want resort’ England Golf will launch a disability championship for the first time in 2019, as part of its calendar of events. Over the past two years, England Golf has worked with the charity BALASA Golf to shape a national championship and it has now been confirmed that England Golf will take sole responsibility for this event from 2019. This will be the first time that the England Golf championship programme has included a disability event and it underlines the organisation’s commitment to being customer focussed.

The championship will offer a competitive opportunity to golfers who are an important part of the game – and their views are being sought to shape the event. Disabled golfers, both club members and non-members, are invited to complete a short survey about the type of event they would like.

A proposed new golf resort in Merseyside does not have the support of public opinion, says MP. Wirral Council says the plan for two courses in Hoylake would create jobs, but Wirral West MP Margaret Greenwood said the area was liable to flooding, and 3,700 people signed a petition against the proposed Hoylake Golf Resort, which includes plans for a hotel and conference centre, and 150 executive homes. Wirral Council leader Phil Davies said the resort would create hundreds of jobs for local people and support businesses, draw extra visitors and generate revenues for public services. He added it would ‘cement Wirral’s leadership position with the international golf community’ after the area hosted The Open four times since 2006. Ms Greenwood said she had received hundreds of messages against the golf resort and around 20 in support: ‘This suggests public opinion is against the resort and I would urge the council to recognise this.’ Phil Simpson, from the Stop Hoylake Golf Resort Campaign, said there was a ‘lack of any demand for yet another golf course in an area already saturated with courses’. He said it could lead to the destruction of a local wildlife site and the loss of greenbelt land. Alternative plans for an ‘eco-golf’ resort, and a wildfowl and wetland centre, were also presented at the meeting, the authority was set to consider funding options before a public consultation and planning application in 2018, council spokesman said.

New rule switches off golf’s armchair referees Television viewers can no longer interfere with match results by drawing attention to golfer’s mistakes which have been missed by on-course officials.

Lexi Thompson: Penalised four strokes after TV viewer intervened

A new rule has been introduced which will avoid the farce that resulted in four strokes being added to Lexi Thompson’s card at the ANA Inspiration event in California. On that occasion, an emailer alerted referees to the fact that the American star had erroneously replaced her ball during the third round. It came to a light a day later, but in time for

her to be docked two strokes for playing a short putt from the wrong position and a further two-shot penalty for signing for the wrong third-round score. These sanctions effectively cost her the Major title.

Now the game’s rule makers, the R&A and United States Golf Association, have introduced a rule, effective from this month, that says viewer interventions will be ignored. The penalty for unwittingly signing for the wrong scorecard in such circumstances has been scrapped.

the kind of mistakes that used to be picked up by alert viewers. ‘In many quarters, these armchair officials were described as nothing more than interfering busy bodies, but the fact is their actions helped to ensure correct scoring.

It brings golf in line with other major sports where TV spectators cannot influence events, even when they spot a blatant rules breach.

‘Nevertheless it was a deeply unsatisfactory way to conduct professional sport. The rules should be administered by referees and by the golfers themselves.’

BBC Golf Correspondent Iain Carter commented: ‘One or more television rules officials will monitor coverage, looking to spot

Thompson said of the changes: ‘In my case, I am thankful that no-one else will have to deal with an outcome such as mine in the future.

The last time I drove across the moors from Pickering to Whitby was many years ago, the skyline was then still dominated by the three structures resembling huge golf balls that were part of the early missile warning system at Fylingdales. Those recognisable remnants of the Cold War have since been replaced by an edifice that reminds you of an Inca temple, but the function is still to protect the nation from ballistic missiles. It is a bleak if starkly beautiful landscape, picturesque in summer but cruel in winter, and fortunately we were to be blessed with seven days of glorious weather to enjoy the region.

The moors have much to attract and entertain the visitor, quite apart from the sheer beauty of the landscape. For the railway enthusiast it is a mecca, with the N Yorks Moors Railway, the World’s Most Popular Heritage steam railway, which runs from Grosmont to Pickering, from the base which houses the workshops. We had booked to travel on the heritage diesel, pulling Pullman coach number 79, and having lunch in style during the journey along the valley of the River Usk, passing through Goathland, Newtondale and Levisham to Pickering. A delightful way to spend Sunday and a great way to whet the appetite before a visit to the National Railway Museum at York. By a stroke of extreme good fortune our friends had rented a wonderful accommodation, Riverside Cottage in Littlebeck, nestling alongside the river in a beautiful valley. An idyllic location to savour for a week, whilst golfing and travelling about the area. With brown trout in the river running just yards from the front door it could verily be described as paradise. The mill was famous for many years because of the craftsmanship of Tom Whittaker who resided there. He was a wood carver who made oak furniture with a honeycomb effect, created by his use of the adze. His work was mainly by commission, and he marked it with his trademark gnome. Fortunately his work can be seen in many churches or inns in the locality.

6 TEE TIMES | January 2018

WHITBY & NORTH YORKSHIRE

With Whitby close at hand, there was no shortage of good places to eat, especially the world famous fish and chips restaurants, of which Trenchers and The Magpie are the most well known. The temptation was too great to resist and we succumbed twice to the aroma of cooking as we passed by.

The course was most enjoyable to play, ideal for holiday golf, memorable for the excellent greens and not too long, but still enough of a test with some very unusual hazards. With a cliff top siting, the wind is all important, and very tough when it is blowing off the North Sea.

After two days of sightseeing the clubs began to stir in the boot and it was off to Whitby Golf Club to play. Whitby is a very friendly club set high on the cliff top overlooking the harbour, with panoramic views out to the North Sea and the nearby beaches from Sandsend to Kettleness. Whitby Golf Club was formed in 1891 as a six hole course on the village common at Goathland, eight miles out of town. It was a risky place to play as the course criss crossed and ran along the roadside. So much so that the club issued notices denying liability for any accidents that occurred as a result of errant golf shots. As a consequence the club decided to relocate to the present site on the cliff tops above the town, laying out nine new holes on both sides of the railway, which can still be identified by part of the bridge structure adjacent to the 6th fairway. Over the years the course was extended, firstly to fifteen holes in 1921, then to the full eighteen holes in 1930. Since that period new holes have had to be constructed to compensate for the effects of coastal erosion.

After an enjoyable round of golf and afternoon tea, there was still time to explore the town of Whitby, which is graced by views south over the harbour up to St Mary’s Church, the monument and the ruins of the St Hilda’s Abbey. There are 199 steps to climb to see it close up. It is easy to see how Bram Stoker got his inspiration for Dracula when he stayed at the Royal Hotel in the 1890’s and looked across the river toward the ruins.

The club manager made us most welcome and set us off to play the links famed for the huge Upgang Ravine which traverses the course, and which is a testing challenge to drive over whilst playing the 6th hole and again on the way home at the 18th the finishing hole.. The way across is by a narrow footbridge , which is itself a challenge for those who fear heights. The sea views are spectacular playing the early holes, and as far as the 9th hole, when it is time to cross the road. On the opposite side of the road are seven holes that are quite a contrast, rolling parkland style but with clever use of streams to test the approach play.

The high ground to the North of the river has the famous the whale bone arch, the monument to the men who went whaling from the port. In the harbour there is a reminder of the most important man associated with the town of Whitby. A replica of The Endeavour, the ship of Captain Cook. Cook lived and learned his seamanship in Whitby before he joined the Royal Navy and began his days of exploration. Captain Cook literally sailed the seven seas in his four ships, from the bleak Antarctic to the Pacific Islands, his voyages made a model for others to follow. The museum in Grape Lane in the town is a treasure trove of information about the renowned sailor and explorer. The region simply abounds with things to do and see, unspoilt fishing villages like Staithes and Robin Hoods Bay, towns and villages on the moors, so much so that seven days merely scratched the surface, and set a positive agenda for another return visit.

BLACKMOOR GOLF CLUB

Discover Donnington Grove Donnington Grove Country Club - 25th Anniversary 1993 – 2018 Situated in the heart of Berkshire, Donnington Grove Country Club is a stunning country hotel and the only 18 Hole Championship Golf Course nestled in the tranquil countryside in Newbury. Set in 500 acres, the hotel boasts unrivalled views of Donnington Castle, the beautiful River Lambourn and all the wildlife that calls it home. Donnington Grove Country Club is in a great location with access from the M4, M5, A4 and A32. When you stay at Donnington Grove Hotel, you’ll only be a short drive away from the historic Newbury town, Highclere Castle (ITV’s Downton Abbey), Newbury Race Course and the Kennet and Avon canal. Overlooked by the historic Donnington Castle, this exceptional golf course was designed by Ryder Cup legend Dave Thomas and the work started in 1991. The 18 Hole Championship Golf Course was officially opened to the public in 1993 and has since delighted and challenged thousands of golfers, from the enthusiastic amateur to the travelling tour professional. It’s hardly surprising then that Donnington Grove has held European Pro Tours, the Donnington Grove Computacenter English Challenge Open in 2004 and in 2010 it was also the venue for the Trilby Tour Berkshire Championship, also featured on Sky TV.

8 TEE TIMES | January 2018

The championship course is beautifully maintained by Dave Knight & his team and is open all year round with no temporary Green or Tee in sight and full of challenges, ensuring that you’ll enjoy the golf course at Donnington Grove. Our excellent facilities add to the perfect golfing experience, as well as having a friendly clubhouse and ideal accommodation – all on-site. Whether you’re looking for golf club membership, a golf break, a day of golf or simply a great round, look no further. Donnington Grove is considered to be one of the most challenging golf courses in Berkshire. Dave Thomas designed and built two nines that are very different in character: The front nine undulates over higher grounds with stunning views over Newbury, whilst the back nine can be described as classic parkland, with an abundance of beautiful trees and water hazards that can unnerve the bravest. With USGA specification greens,

American style bunkering the course fits perfectly in the Berkshire country side. From the back tees it over 7100 yards, but from the yellows a more manageable 6576 yards, and at that a though examination needing all the clubs in the bag, only made easier if the drive is spot on. Over the last 25 years the owners have made tremendous investment in the complex, a large clubhouse for golfers & hotel guests to relax in a friendly environment, a Restaurant that can accommodate eighty plus with excellent views of the estate, a superb head chef creating exceptional meals, the perfect wedding venue, treatment rooms for golfers & guest to enjoy, a full stocked ProShop with excellent PGA Professionals Tom Fleming & Chris Devonshire offering expert tuition, clay pigeon shooting on site, Fly fishing on the river Lambourn, Full length driving range and  short game area, so with more plans in the pipeline the future of Donnington Groves looks bright!

BOO K FOR NOW 2018

The Man Who Saved The Ryder Cup As the golfing fraternity watches the next Ryder Cup match in France, witnessing the biennial contest between the USA and Europe, few will be aware of the importance of a wealthy American businessman, Robert A Hudson, who single handedly saved the contest from oblivion. At the end of World War 11, after a break of ten years, few would have given priority to sending a team of golfers to play the match in America. Funds were simply not available for such an event, with the almost certain prospect of defeat for the Great Britain and Irish team. One man had the foresight to provide the money to invite the British team to play in the contest in 1947 at Portland Oregon. He had been a generous sponsor of events in the USA, but this latest book written by Peter Fry will provide the link and information about this very special sportsman. The story of his role as a sponsor and committee man, and his other involvement in American golf has been careful researched by the author, who has created a volume that will complement existing books on the history of what is today, probably the most significant international team contest in the game of golf. The publication consists of 140 pages which

include twenty full colour and 100 black and white illustrations, and the printing is of the highest quality, using Essential Velvet paper. Author Peter Fry is the official historian of the Came Down Golf Club in Dorset, and is best known for his full length biography of Samuel Ryder, the donor of the Ryder Cup (www. samuelryderstory.co.uk) which includes a foreword by Ryder Cup Captain Bernard Gallagher. He also wrote the history of Verulam Golf Club, the home club of Samuel Ryder. His meticulous research which has been thoroughly documented in this first class book, will add to the rich store of golf publications. Michael Rees

CORPORATE GOLF

IN THE EAST

Dunstan Hall An invitation to East Anglia is very hard to resist, a region of wonderful golf courses, of infinite variety and challenge, the enchanting Norfolk Broads and some of the finest wildlife sites anywhere in the country. It is like writing my personal wish list and finding it all coming true. I first came to the Broads in 1957, over half a century ago, and since that first experience it has had a special attraction for me that never tires. The coast is home to some of the finest links in the land, and it can boast several Royal clubs, Royal Cromer, Royal Norwich and not forgetting that wonderful nine hole classic Royal Worlington and Newmarket, oft called The Sacred Nine. Just cause for pride.

After the delights of the north Norfolk coast at Cromer and Sheringham, it was time to sample the parkland course at Dunstan Hall, situated just four miles from the city centre. It is a most stylish setting, an impressive Elizabethan style mansion, which has recently been renovated at a cost of over two million pounds. The course spreads out over 159 acres of stunning Norfolk wooded parkland. The literature states quite simply that it is the perfect venue for your corporate golf day. Unbeatable style and comfort and relaxation, and a fine golf course to be enjoyed, after a warm up on the driving range. The course is 6275 yards from the medal tees, with a par of 71, at first glance not long by any means, but as has been written so often, that does not mean easy pickings. The undulating fairways, strategic bunkers and numerous lakes ensure that you will need your A game to score well, a fact we found out to our cost on a windy autumn afternoon.

12 TEE TIMES | January 2018

Fortunately the putter worked well, to salvage some pride. It is an old adage, but nevertheless still true, play well and you will be rewarded, stray and pay the penalty. The first is a ninety degree dog left, defended by water on the right and also on the approach to the green, an early examination of a rusty swing after a warm up cut short. Water again rears its head on the third, with a lake again protecting the green, and a good drive is required to make the second easier. The fourth is the first of four very good short holes, though hardly short at 206 yards. The 6th and the 16th holes were my personal favourites, both involving lakes in front of the green and a true test of ball striking.

There are several short par fours, ranging from 270 yards to 339 yards, good driving should provide chances for the odd birdie, but they were in short supply during our round, a cool breeze and recent rain restricted the run on the ball, but did not detract from a most enjoyable game on a course that was a credit to the greens staff. We were very impressed by the young assistant professional who greeted us on our arrival, friendly and efficient, and as he told only a few weeks in the job. He should develop into an able member of the team run by Director of Golf Tom Turner. At the end of the round it was time to relax in the Bunkers Bar, the very comfortable setting to offer relief after the endeavours of the golf course. Ideal for enjoying locally produced food. In addition to the relaxed atmosphere of the Bunkers Bar, there is a more formal dining experience to be had in Dunstan Hall, at the Brasserie Bar & Grill for those with time to stay longer The hotel has all the requisite luxuries for those staying over, with swimming pool, hot tub, steam room and gym. Perhaps next visit.

Dunstan Hall is a member of QFairway, the golf flexible golf membership of Q Hotels, which now comprises ten first class locations stretching the length of the country. From north to south they are: The Westerwood Resort near Glasgow, Slaley Hall in Northumberland, Aldwark Manor and Oulton Hall in Yorkshire, Forest Pines and Belton Woods both in Lincolnshire, Mottram Hall in Cheshire, Telford Resort in Shropshire, Hellidon Lakes in Northamptonshire and last but certainly not least the most easterly Dunstan Hall in Norfolk. Having now had the pleasure of playing five of the courses, I will be planning to visit the remaining five, certain of a warm welcome and a course in first class condition. The hallmark of a very good brand name. The most memorable visit was the few days spent at Slaley Hall where the two courses are no stranger to top class golf, and have hosted European Tour events and numerous other events. If you are fortunate to reside close to one of the courses in the portfolio, the offers for golf membership are superb value, and are well worth exploring. Similarly the offers for shirt breaks would be difficult to beat. Michael Rees

January 2018 | TEE TIMES 13


2001 - 2018

The Way To Better Golf – 5 P’s As regular readers are well aware my column continually extols the virtues of custom club fitting. I have covered the more common comment “I am not good enough for custom clubs” on several occasions. This month I would like to comment that custom made clubs alone is not the complete answer to game improvement. The best way for complete game improvement is the “5 P’s”. First P is Play: It may sound obvious but if you don’t play regularly you game is not going to improve. I often get requests from golfers asking how much custom clubs will improve their game when they only play 2 or 3 times a year. The answer is yes they will improve your game buy do not expect a massive improvement.

For the beginning player, custom golf clubs have increased playability providing a measure of confidence from which they can start to better learn to play the game by using equipment more suited to their skill level. Finally, you can get the most appropriate set-make up for your skill level, playing characteristics, gender and age.

Second P – Practise: Again it sounds obvious but if a golfer spends productive time practicing not just hitting balls without any thought or analysis, it will improve your game. Sadly it is a fact that the majority of golfers do not have the time or inclination for extra practice.

You will enjoy playing the game more with custom golf clubs With properly fitted, quality custom golf clubs in your golf bag, every time you pull a golf club out, you will play with more confidence and less frustration knowing that you can consistently hit the ball. The custom club fitting process is about building and fitting golf clubs that allow you to play better golf. This means that you will be able to: Hit the golf ball FARTHER Hit the golf ball STRAIGHTER Hit the golf ball with more CONSISTENCY

Third P – Properly Fit: Quality Equipment. This where I come in! Proper fit equipment can in nearly all cases bring about noticeable improvements in play and in many cases this will be a very dramatic improvement. Properly fit custom golf clubs can provide great benefits to all golfers but especially to the average and high handicap golfer who may have difficulty hitting the ball straight or long or consistently. Without needing to generate the swing speeds of PGA Tour players, the average golfer will be able to hit the ball farther by being fitted with the right game improvement club heads and properly fitted golf shafts suited to their particular playing abilities and characteristics. Golf sets can be optimized to include easy hitting hybrid golf clubs. This is especially true not only for high handicap golfers but for anybody who may have special requirements such as tall golfers, short golfers, seniors, women and juniors. Properly fitted custom golf clubs factor in many characteristics to help your game such as proper shaft flex for your swing speed, proper shaft length, clubhead lie and correct loft and grip size. All of these can affect how you play your game and all are addressed by having properly fitted custom golf clubs. There are three primary reasons to buy custom fit golf clubs:

Custom golf clubs will save you money Contrary to more common opinions, custom built and fitted golf clubs are substantially lower priced over ‘brand-name’ golf clubs for equivalent quality. Yes you can buy cheaper clubs but that negates all the benefits listed above. How can a properly fitted, quality set of custom golf clubs improve your game? Custom golf clubs are matched to your playing abilities and characteristics Your current set make-up can easily be matched and optimized to remove golf clubs that you can’t hit with clubs that you can hit in order to enhance your golf game You can take advantage of the latest golf technology and increased playability that custom golf clubs provide. Simply put, custom golf clubs provide enhanced playability and style at a price that is surprisingly affordable for everyone.

Fourth P – Professional Instruction: Fairly self explanatory, as long as you find a competent teaching professional with an Custom fit golf clubs improve your game establish and proven track record. Apart from Custom fit golf clubs make the game easier getting on with your teacher he (or she) has to play because the golf clubs are built to your got to be competent. Ask around at your club playing style and ability. Better players are able and driving range for a teaching professional to tweak their golf game with custom built and who can show that they successfully reduce fitted golf clubs. Average golfers will benefit the playing handicap of their students. because custom golf clubs will allow them to After all if your handicap is not reduced why consistently hit the ball more solidly, with good pay for lessons! direction control and proper trajectory

14 TEE TIMES | January 2018

Fifth P – Proper Mental Attitude: This is a very popular subject at the moment and the golf magazines are now beginning to print more and more adverts for mind gurus. It is a subject that I personally believe that golfers would improve their games and their scores. My most favourite comment is “If you think you can, or you think you can’t, you are probably right!” How many times have you heard the comment when standing on the tee with water in the eye line of the tee shot “You watch me hit this ball into the water!” and guess what the ball goes into the water! Indeed, golf is a tough mental game and when it comes to winning...only golfers with a strong positive golf mental attitude succeed. They are more confident and they win the game mentally before even starting to play.

Good golfers visualize and win the game in their mind and use their skills to make it happen in reality. This reflects the power of a high positive golf mental attitude! Finally, I would like to congratulate Peter on his wondeful magazine and reaching a wonderful milestone of 200 editions. I look forward to 200 more!

BLACKMOOR GOLF CLUB

ROMSEY GOLF CLUB - THE FIRST FIFTY YEARS In 1890 there were only 387 golf clubs throughout the world, and seven of those were in the county of Hampshire, but within the next ten years the game expanded dramatically and that number had swollen to 2330, and one of the new additions to the register was Romsey Golf Club. The first Romsey course was located at Hamptworth to the South East of the town. It first appeared as a club in the record books in The Golf Year Book in 1900. It was a nine hole course that had simply been created on a stretch of farmland, and was supported by a few members of the business gentry from the town. It was the era of expansion for golf clubs, and golf was the fashionable recreation for the well -heeled. From farmland it was born and to farmland it returned, for when the founder, Captain Maurice Suckling RN died in 1924, his heirs decided it would be more profitable returning the land to farming. When the club lost its home, two members of the Guard family searched for an alternative site, and obtained a lease on the land where the present course is located. The owner was Colonel W W Ashley, and later Lord Mount Temple, better known as Lord Palmerston. Golf had been played on this estate land as early as 1863, and when the new lease was agreed, the Stoneham

16 TEE TIMES | January 2018

Professional , George Kirkby and the Stoneham, Secretary Colonel Waddle were commissioned to design the new nine hole course. An old army hut was acquired for the clubhouse, and thus from that humble beginning the club continued in existence, the facts of which were duly confirmed by the R&A and the records amended to show the correct date on formation. The Broadlands Estate which owned the land, had been home to Lord Palmerston, and in later years became the family home of Lord Mountbatten of Burma who was an active President of the golf club for many years, until his tragic death at the hands of the IRA in 1979. Much of the early history had been untapped, and it was not until the mid 1990’s when research was being done into the club history that the facts came to light, and continuity was proved about the relocation to Nursling. Contact with early members, research into the Romsey Advertiser records and much hard work was required to obtain the acceptance by the R&A that there was a continuance from the original club. Unfortunately that club history was never published, though the work proved invaluable.

Club minutes of 1934 gave first evidence of extensive work on the course, with the entry giving approval given to the Captain, Mr Nichols to procure soil from Millbrook and arrange cartage. The first motorised greens equipment was a modified Fordson Van, which is shown in the picture being driven by greenkeeper Dick Dunsford. Then came World War 11, and everything changed, it was a simple case of survival until the conflict was over. For several years the club seemingly ambled along, but then the arrival of Reg Horne as Club Professional was the change that put the club on the golfing map. Reg was a very accomplished and successful golfer, winning the PGA Championship, and he narrowly missed winning the Open Championship in 1947, when he was pipped by Irishman Fred Daly by one shot, he finished tied for second place with Frank Stranahan of the USA. He won several top events during his career on the British Tour as it was then, and was chosen for the Ryder Cup team, the team which went to Portland Oregon in 1947, the first time it was played after the war.

He eventually left Romsey to settle at Hendon Golf Club, where he stayed until he retired. After the war, in common with many other golf clubs, Romsey struggled to re-establish the membership, the war years had had a terrible impact and although the conflict was over, the Fifties followed; it was by a time of austerity, and the club was reduced to forty or fifty players, and there was no plan other than survival for several years. The loyalty of that hardcore of members meant that the club survived a critical period in its history, and with the improved prosperity was ready to advance again. Many of the clubs which had been formed in that early period were nine hole layouts, and all the trends were for full eighteen hole courses, and in keeping with other clubs in Hampshire the idea of extending the layout was muted, though the potential costs were the stumbling block. The first fifty years had been eventful, the club had relocated to a much better environment on the rolling landscape of the Broadlands Estate, survived and recovered, it had a renowned and world famous figure as the President of the club in Lord Mountbatten of Burma, and the woes off wartime had finally been banished, the start of the second half of the century boded well. • Turn over to read more..

BLACKMOOR GOLF CLUB

ROMSEY GOLF CLUB - THE ELIZABETHAN ERA In 1953 King George VI died and Queen Elizabeth came to the throne, it was an era of radical change, the sporting public became more aware of the game of golf, it had started with the emergence of Arnold Palmer, who revived the fortunes of the Open Championship by coming over to play. When television started to cover events, and the challenges of the Big Three, Palmer, Jack Nicklaus and the diminutive Gary Player captured the public imagination and the game expanded as never before. With the coming of the sixties and seventies, the nation was beginning to really prosper, the nation had never had it so good, the politicians told everyone, and a positive and rapidly expanding interest in golf was evident. The sudden interest in the game meant that there was a shortage of opportunities to play, and many member’s clubs suddenly found that they had waiting lists, a far cry from ten years before. One man in particular became the driving force in extending the existing facilities at Romsey, his name was Charlie Wills. As a result of his influence it was decided to extend the course to eighteen holes. The relative costs were huge for the club, so inevitably it had to be tackled as prudently as possible, the sum estimated was £36,000, so corners had to be cut, and as a consequence improvements had to be made over the years that have elapsed from that time, but the fundamental change had been made and an eighteen hole layout was the result. Some members felt that the course would be diminished by the changes, as several good nine hole courses had been made into lesser quality eighteen hole courses, but the new layout was eventually opened in 1974, to much acclaim. The opening ceremony was performed by the Mayor of Romsey and the club President Lord Louis Mountbatten of Burma. The new course instantly attracted

more members, and the need for a larger clubhouse was the outcome. The old tin shed known by golfers throughout Hampshire was inadequate, so an extension was built. It was here above all that foresight was shown by the Committee, because they built the new bar and changing rooms with excellent foundations that would be able to support a second storey when the extended clubhouse was to be built many years in the future. Although Romsey Golf Club had achieved a major change by adding an extra nine holes to complete the full eighteen, it was far from the rosy picture first anticipated. The new holes were suspect to stones lifting through the turf, and so the enterprising members used the problem as a cause for a social get together, when very successful stone picking evenings were organised. The course continued to settle and develop, and become recognised as a very good test of golf, to add to the first class reputation as a very friendly and homely members club.

Reg Horne

The heart of any association of sportsmen is the spirit generated by the characters who are members. The club was blessed with many during this time, times of sing song around the

piano with RAF war hero and artist Spike Harrison, events organised by club steward John Saunders, and when George Biles retired, the club was fortunate to recruit one of the best club secretaries in the country. Phil Hargreaves, who had been a professional soldier for many years, proved to be just what was required for a growing club. In the early 1990’s there was an unexpected bonus for all private golf clubs, when a European ruling meant that private sports clubs could reclaim a substantial amount of the Vat that had been paid over the preceding years. It also resulted in heated debates at many clubs over how the money gleaned should be dissipated. Some gave it back to the members, but at Romsey, after an Extraordinary General Meeting there was a positive support to use the money for the advancement of the club. At the time the existing lease with the Broadlands Estate was nearing the time for renewal. When the members voted that the substantial Vat refund could be used to extend the clubhouse and build upstairs offices and new changing rooms, the resulting capital enhancement helped convince the Trustees to agree another lease.

With a new lease and support from the sale of a limited number of lease life memberships, plans were drawn to build the new clubhouse. After the News Year’s Eve party in the clubhouse in 1993 the bulldozers came in, and the next morning work started on the demolition of the old veranda, and the project began in earnest. Everything ran according to plan, and the new clubhouse duly opened in July of 1994. Fully constructed and furnished without borrowing one penny. The new clubhouse provided the perfect environment for the evolution of the club and to progress into the twenty first century. The dawn of the year 2000 was celebrated universally, and with no more gusto than at the New Year’s Party at Romsey. For this was the start of the celebrations for the club’s Centenary Year. That honour was shared with several other clubs in the United Kingdom, and the highlight of the year was the Celebration Week, during which all the members participated, a great way to recognise one hundred years of history.

BLACKMOOR GOLF CLUB

Heath Teschner and James Fairlie

THE 21st CENTURY Romsey Golf Club is situated just three miles from the centre of Romsey on the A3057 at Nursling, less than a mile from the M27 motorway. Nestling at the south eastern edge of Broadlands Estate, on a beautiful mature wooded parkland blessed with undulating contours, the course meanders through the trees, with its own version of Amen Corner on the front nine, the 5th, 6th and 7th, three holes that will provide a challenge for any golfer. The signature hole 6th, is a spectacular par four, with a tough par three before and after. For although the course is less than 6000 yards, the narrow wooded fairways, doglegs and strategically placed bunkers make it an examination of accuracy rather than length, rewarding good course management as well as good shot making. The Club, which celebrated it’s Centenary in the year 2000, moved to the present site in 1924, it was originally a nine hole course, laid out by George Kirby, the professional from Stoneham. It was extended to an eighteen hole layout in 1974, and it is now a very tight par 69, which demands accuracy and patience to score well. It is a credit to the members of the day that their design has stood the test so well. Rightly described a

woodland gem, the colours of the trees change as the months pass, from the fresh green of spring to the autumn, which is a delight with the golds and warm browns of the leaves as they change from summer finery. Romsey has long had the reputation of being a very friendly club, from the time you drive into the car park, expect a welcome both from the members and the staff in the clubhouse and the most importantly the professional’s shop. It is said that first impressions are important and stay in the memory, and Heath Teschner who is the Head Professional and his assistant James Fairlie are always happy to help to make the visit an enjoyable one. Their shop is fully stocked to provide a comprehensive service to members and visitors alike. They have been recently joined by trainee

professional Elliot Groves, who will be starting his PGA qualifications in September. Elliott who was a junior member of the now defunct Dunwood Manor course in his youth, went to the USA on a golf scholarship and attended Western Texas College and then Oklahoma City University, where he represented the university in winning the NAIA National Championship in 2012, before returning home. He turned professional in 2013;.and with the encouragement of Heath and James he will be representing the club on the Hampshire PGA circuit as well as the Southern Region PGA Tour. He made a great start to his Hampshire career by winning the Hampshire Trainee Championship. The club is always mindful of the fact that the golf course is the jewel in the crown of any club, and Romsey have a first class team lead by Head Greenkeeper Steve Gibbs. The programme of course maintenance and improvements is in capable hands, and during the recent year the

Elliott Groves

ongoing installation of eco bunkers, which were invented by Richard Allen, has been in full cry. Aesthetically good to look at, with neat riveting they are excellent in performance. On holes 5, 6 7 and 8 the bunkers have all been converted to the eco system, which ensures they are in the best possible condition year round. Part of the ongoing target designed to provide a course which is in prime condition throughout the year. Particular attention will be concentrated on the provision of first class greens, and the club is currently in the throes of planning a major reinvestment in greens equipment, all part of the structured approach to deliver the very best results for members and visitors alike. A good course promotes good golf, and the club has enjoyed considerable success over the last few years, in more recent times both the ladies and the juniors have had cause to celebrate. In 2016 the ladies again won the Stoneham Cup, but the junior’s team took the honours and came to national recognition when they qualified for the Home Nations Final held in Portugal. The six man team narrowly lost the final on countback after finishing level at three games all with Beadlow Manor, a great performance in which they won their first three rounds and were never defeated. Leading members of the team, Owen Grimes and George Nicholson-Jack who both happen to be left handers, will both be crossing the Atlantic on golf scholarships with American universities this autumn. • Turn over to read more..

BLACKMOOR GOLF CLUB

Any potential member considering joining a golf club will have to examine the benefits of such membership, and the facilities available at the club are comprehensive. A simple look into the website of the club will yield the answers. They are numerous and all embracing. In addition to the extensive work on the course, there has been a major refurbishment of the bar area in the clubhouse, the new layout give a bright and spacious dimension to the serving area, and makes the whole operation more efficient, and user friendly. There are reciprocal facilities available at a number of clubs around the southern region and these give an added dimension to club membership. The foresight of two club Captains in the mid 1990’s started a trial with a few other clubs to have a reciprocal playing agreement. After the very successful initiation period, all enthusiastically endorsed the idea, and now there is a broad choice of clubs in the family. The motto is join one club and play at many, for there are now over twenty clubs in the reciprocal arrangement. So the variety of clubs within comfortable travelling time is excellent, stretching from Crowborough Beacon in the East, to Bridport & Dorset and Lyme Regis to the West and Chipping Norton in the Cotswolds to the North, a wonderful choice of golf courses just for the cost of a tiny booking fee. Apart from a very good course, members enjoy a full social programme of social events throughout the year, each one is a sell out so tickets go quickly, staring early in the year with the Black Tie Supper, then Burns Night and Valentine’s Day, through the summer with a whole gambit of theme evenings ranging from gourmet to traditional fayre. The winter quiz league is exceedingly competitive and very well supported, and the year is always very well concluded with Christmas Parties and the New Year celebrations. The regular Sunday carvery is a focal point for members, family and friends as well as visitors, but reservations are advisable, (essential for non-members) and in such a pleasant atmosphere, the lunch may stretch into the late afternoon. Chef Paul Bascombe is on hand to ensure that everything is served with taste and quality. Societies are welcomed on prescribed days of the week, and are well catered for. General

Manager Marc Cole and his team will be pleased to hear from interested organisers, as will the catering and bar staff, the hosts in the clubhouse. The club offers packages to accommodate a variety of arrangements that can be tailored to meet the needs of large or small groups, whether summer or winter. The many regular and repeat bookings are a true indicator of the quality of the golf and the ancillary services they receive at Romsey. A recent addition to the benefits available is the accommodation in the clubhouse of sports physiotherapist James Kirkpatrick. He has sessions available by appointment three days each week, for the treatment of members and guest. A service that has already proved to be convenient and a very popular addition. At the commencement of every financial year there are inevitably some vacancies for members following renewals, and a few exist at the present time. Unlike many other clubs in

Hampshire and the rest of the country, there is a small joining fee, which the club feels provides club loyalty and a sense of involvement. Romsey offers the complete package, and the simplest way to sample the atmosphere is to go along and play there, for potential members it is the ideal introduction to a club environment that is just that little bit different. So what does Romsey Golf Club offer to the discerning golfer? • A fine course all year round • A comfortable clubhouse, with good food and TV entertainment. • First class professional shop. • Competitions throughout the year, both individual and club representation • Reciprocal arrangements with Twenty four golf clubs • Convenient location • A very good Social calendar

• Responsive management team • Financial stability • Sports physiotherapy on site • Function rooms for hosting celebrations and parties. This list is not exhaustive, but should be sufficient to tempt any golfer looking to join a progressive and rewarding club, whatever their gender or age group. General Manager Marc Cole will be happy to respond to any enquiry whether for membership, society golf or to celebrate that special occasion. In the words of Sir Henry Cotton, it is a good place to come and test your game. For more information about any aspects of the Romsey Golf Club, visit the club website: www.romseygolfclub.com Or telephone the club on 02380 734637 Michael Rees

His right knee was shattered and his left foot was almost torn off. An horrific car crash left Marc Cayeux physically devastated seven years ago, facing 27 rounds of surgery which would leave him an inch shorter than he had been. But the spirit of the 39-year-old Lancasterborn pro golfer was undaunted and there for everyone to see as he rejoined Africa’s Sunshine Tour last month – and made the cut. The Zimbabwean golfer - once in the world’s top 200 – argued with doctors who wanted to amputate his leg and faced seven weeks in intensive care, three months in hospital and four years learning to walk again.

His world ranking fell more than 1,500 places before his return, and he still struggles with pain. But he told BBC Sport. ‘I have to just get on with things.’ It was September 2010 when an oncoming police truck hit a cow in the road, swerved into his path and crashed head-on into him. Cayeux, who left England before his first birthday and now lives in George, South Africa, said he came round as his car burst into flames and he dragged what was left of his legs clear ‘I remember saying to myself: “I’m not going to die like this�. ‘When I learned to walk in a pool, I was going in on my crutches, complaining about pain, until I saw a guy my age in a

Big drive to inspire a wider community of golfers Golf clubs across England are being offered new support to encourage more people from diverse ethnic communities to get involved in the game. It is the result of a two-year project in Birmingham, run by England Golf and course operator Mytime Active, to discover how to involve Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic communities in golf. The project successfully attracted 140 people from a range of backgrounds to take a six-week beginner course and now, with the support of Sporting Equals, a toolkit has been created to help clubs engage with local communities to grow the game.   It’ is part of the England Golf strategy to create a healthy future for golf by encouraging clubs to offer what their existing and potential customers want. Jason Stanton, Operations Director of Mytime Active said: ‘Over 40per cent of Birmingham’s population is from a non-white background and Mytime Active operates seven golf courses across the city, making us ideally placed to engage with the local population.  ‘The three courses we chose for the project already had links with the local community and we were able to build on these to develop relationships and discover how to involve more people from diverse groups in golf.’

20 TEE TIMES | January 2018

These included the normal difficulties, such as time and money, as well as cultural restrictions. For example, a group of Bangladeshi Muslim women were keen to learn but needed a female-only session, taught by a male golf pro with a female assistant, and a relaxed dress code so that they could wear headscarves and saris. With these barriers overcome, 15 women completed the six-week course, with 12 others attending for between three and five sessions. There are plans to include more golf opportunities in the summer programme at their community centre.  The project first offered golf at trial and taster sessions in the community before signposting the six-week beginner courses at the golf centres. Encouragingly, the

wheelchair with no legs. It makes you realise, I am lucky with what I have. ‘I stood there going, “I am going to do this. I have to get back walking and I can get back to golf�.’ Cayeux was playing on the European Tour before his accident in 2010 and says he is indebted to the organisation’s support, as well as that of compatriot Tony Johnstone and that of wife Jana – ‘my rock’.

Anthony shines on Royal Links Prince’s own Director of Golf and PGA Professional Anthony Tarchetti won the PGA Royal Links Championship Pro-Am at Prince’s and Royal Cinque Ports. The new Captain of The PGA in England (South) took home the winner’s cheque for ÂŁ1,000 after shooting two rounds of 70 and 71 for a total of two-under par 141. He edged out The PGA in England (South) Money List leader, Lee-on-the-Solent’s James Ablett by one shot, and Canterbury’s Richard Wallis, the new Virgin Atlantic PGA South Order of Merit champion by two. Tarchetti was delighted to win, but it wasn’t all plain sailing as he explained: ‘On the first round the weather was pretty wild, and while it helped on the front nine, birdies were still far from easy.’ In the team event, amateur Tony Hobbs and Elliot Groves (Romsey) won by three shots from the S&G Air Team led by Charlie Wilson (Prince’s).

The toolkit for clubs, Encouraging ethnic diversity in golf through community engagement, includes case studies, good practice guidance and other information. It can be downloaded from the England Golf website. Local community groups and leaders looked at everything from the make-up of the communities to the image of the game and the barriers to playing.

average age of the 140 participants was 32, compared to the national average of 46; and 35per cent were women, compared to the national average of 15per cent. The largest ethnic group was from a Bangladeshi background, with 32 participants, followed by 30 with a Pakistani background. The project was supported by Sporting Equals, which promotes greater involvement in sport and physical activity by the diverse population. The organisation provided advice and insight and eight members of the West Midlands staff went even further, by taking part in golf activities in their lunch breaks.  They also modelled for pictures to promote and market the project. Their images help to dispel stereotypes by reflecting the local community and portraying the mixed group in casual, comfortable clothing – and having fun. 

Untimely death of Anthony Dillon, 48 The general manager of Sandford Springs Golf Club in Kingsclere, Hampshire, has expressed the shock and sorrow felt by staff and members following the untimely passing of Anthony Dillon, its director of golf. ‘This has been a huge shock to staff and members alike here at Sandford Springs,’ said Tom Moran. ‘He will be sorely missed and our thoughts are with his wife Denise and family at this time. The messages of support have been overwhelming and are testament to the impact he had on everyone he met.’ Anthony, who succumbed to cancer at the age of 48, started and ended his professional career at Sandford Springs. He qualified as a PGA Professional in 1990 during his first spell there and returned as its director of golf towards the end of 2015. In between times he worked at several clubs in the area, including Weybrook Park, Basingstoke, where he spent 15 years from 1997 until 2012.

BLACKMOOR GOLF CLUB

NORTH NORFOLK LINKS

Since I first began to play golf, I was enthralled by tales of the fantastic golf courses of the East Coast, one of my partners had family there and was a thus a regular golfing visitor to the region, and always ready to talk of the Norfolk links. The chance to replicate those times was just too good to pass over, and so we journeyed North and then East via Newmarket and Thetford to West Runton.

We were staying at the delightful picturesque Links Hotel, which just happens to boast possession of a nine hole golf course. The course has had a chequered history, however, that has changed dramatically since it was acquired by the family owned Mackenzie Group and renamed the Links Country Park Golf Club. Originally it was an eighteen hole course designed by no other than five time Open Champions J H Taylor. It was ravaged by the war, and some of the land sold off,it was restored to some glory by the appointment of Gary Player as Director of Golf, and more latterly reinstated to original and former glory by the new owners.

It is now a good test of golf, with three very tough short holes, tremendous views, and a sleepered green to challenge in the middle of the round, before a finish that offers birdie chances to improve the scorecard. A very sporty nine holes, in very good condition, and the perfect holiday exercise, right outside the hotel door. A mere ten minutes drive south from the Links Hotel takes you to the Royal Cromer Golf Club, one of the majestic courses of the North Norfolk coastal region. It was founded in 1888, and was awarded it’s Royal status before play had even commenced, because the club president was a friend of the Prince of Wales, later to become Edward V11. Set on the cliff tops overlooking the North Sea it is a great examination of the golf game, especially when the wind blows. The cliff top holes are a test, long par fours are a constant battle, and with gorse aplenty, the driver had better be in good form. There are several memorable holes to savour, the 5th along the cliff, the periscope needed to see the fairway on the 8th, and the return alongside to the elevated 9th green before the

24 TEE TIMES | January 2018

first of the second nine. This starts with a great downhill par 3, bedecked with pot bunkers, a delightful hole that has been tremendously improved by the adding of additional bunkers, the idea of greenkeeper Mark Heveran. The last five holes are an absolute treat if you love natural golf, making full use of the contours of the land and the masses of gorse, blind shots are to be enjoyed not decried. The signature hole is the 14th, The Lighthouse, which dominates the skyline at the back of the green. This is followed by two challenging par 4’s before the Kestrel View. This is a short hole of just 119 yards, but all you have is tee and green, with thick gorse betwixt the two, add a bunker in front as another defence, and you have one mean test where a par is cause to celebrate. A Royal course that deserves the title, for it is truly regal.

views in golf, and it would be hard to disagree, for the whole stretch along the cliff edge is truly awe inspiring. Much of the front nine follows the cliff with the sea in full view, and

This was a course that was a pleasure to play, and the welcome in the professional shop and the clubhouse made the day a complete success. The club Secretary Manager was the perfect host, and the man to contact if you wish to share the experience.

To complete the trio, it was short trip to Sheringham, and the world famous course that resides on the north facing clifftop just outside the town. Running between the sea and the North Norfolk railway, it is both picturesque and a true golfing giant, with the traditional style clubhouse dominating the scene alongside the first tee. A halt at the level crossing, and a magnificent steam train rattles by, a reminder of the age when the railways were the development that caused golf to expand dramatically. In 1908 there was an exhibition match played here by four of the great Open Champions, The Triumvirate of Harry Vardon, J H Taylor, and James Braid plus the first overseas champion, Frenchman Arnaud Massey. It is evidenced by a great sepia photograph displayed in the clubhouse. Sheringham Golf Club was formed in 1891, originally a nine hole course it was extended to the full 18 holes seven years later. It is laid out on the west side of the town and is renowned for the long par fours, and it said that the much photographed 5th tee offers one of the most memorable

the back nine meanders back to the clubhouse bordered by the railway, with steam trains and boxcar diesels passing regularly by. Reminders of a bygone age. Featuring holes that area burned into the memory banks, to be relived every time you think of the visit. The second of two truly marvellous golfing experiences. Three facets of the North Norfolk diamond that are available with one call. The Links Hotel and the in house Restaurant, it’s golf course, and then the twin regal delights of clifftop golf at Royal Cromer and Sheringham, they can be enjoyed with a package costing less than you would ever imagine. Visit the website www.mackenziehotels.com or email info@mackenziehotels.com for details. I can guarantee a golfing excursion that will never be forgotten, and will demand to be repeated.

Golf Academy

It is always with a sense of anticipation that the journey to East Anglia begins, as an itinerant golfer the attractions are the plentiful links and seaside courses that stand at the top of any rankings, and a glance through the golf guides would endorse that statement. The autumn is a great time to plan a late break on the Norfolk Broads, and whilst resident it will be no surprise that as a confirmed Colt fan, a visit to Great Yarmouth and Caister Golf Club was an irresistable temptation and another chance to sample the work of the master. This is a members club that offers a genuine welcome to the travelling golfer. The telephone call to request a tee reservation was enthusiastically received, and the welcome on arrival was equally as positive.

A visit to the Secretary’s office yielded far more than a copy of the club booklet, for there was much conversation about the clubs links with Royal Blackheath Golf Club and the Colt Association and the fascinating history of the club. A warm welcome and an opportunity to chew the fat about golf and golf courses, the perfect combination.

BLACKMOOR GOLF CLUB

He then arranged matches against Royal Blackheath, Felixstowe and Cambridge University, having obtained permission from the Mayor to play the matches over the site he had chosen at North Denes. In August 1882 the match was played between Dr Browne, Mr H Cummings and Mr F Burton, they became the first three members of the club. The club was adopted by the members of Royal; Blackheath, who provided Captains, Officers, members and trophies. The start of a long and beneficial relationship between the two clubs and one that is still enjoyed to this day. The club also has claims to be the inventor of the Bogie Competition, as the founder Dr Browne coined the phrase, and the first Bogie Competitions were played at the club. In 1913 the club eventually joined with the Caister Club, which it bordered, and Harry Colt was asked to redesign the new 18 hole course. The final revisions were completed in 1921, and the opening of the new layout was celebrated with a match between Ted Ray and George Duncan (both Open Champions) and local players Len Holland and J B Batley. After the Second World War it took time to re-establish the links which had been extensively used for tank training, all part of the colourful history.

Just across the fence from the third green is a hole that begins the challenge, the trees have gone and linksland is spread out to greet you, over 450 yards and with a backdrop of the racecourse grandstand offset in the background. With classic cross bunkers and greens that need finesse to stay on, it is a fine example of traditional links golf, laid out as nature intended. The bunkers bolstered by railway sleepers and rolling fairways have a magical feel, and the need for accurate driving is constant. The 5th hole is a blind dogleg, where placement is more important than length from the tee, a comment that is also true for the 6th and after a testing par three, the next three holes are very tough to complete the front ten, for that is where you return to the clubhouse. The 11th is the signature hole, a monster par 4 against the wind, long and straight with no bunkers, and where a good drive is essential. The 12th and 14th are two superb short holes, the 12th is all carry to an elevated green and the 14th a sunken green surrounded by the characteristic sleepered bunkers, a golfers delight. If the short holes are good, the long ones will certainly test the mettle, the 13th and 15th are both well over 500 yards and huge played against the wind, fortunately they are in opposite directions, so at least one is comfortable. Then it’s the finishing stretch along the rails, and the final hole back to the clubhouse. Great Yarmouth Golf Club was founded in 1882, by Dr Thomas Browne RN, who moved to the Royal Naval Hospital in Yarmouth. He noticed the land at North Denes and decided it would be ideal for a golf course, and decided to make it happen. He called a meeting and no-one turned up, so he declared himself Hon Secretary, Treasurer and Club Captain.

Today the course is a fine test, a contrast within the eighteen holes, five of parkland and the remainder archetypal links, but in first class condition, and a credit to the greens staff, with typical fast and true seaside greens. The abiding memories will be of the excellent short holes, which thanks to a benevolent putter, surprisingly on the day yielded most welcome pars, when the wind made scoring a trial. Professional Martyn Clarke was very helpful, and made our visit that much more enjoyable with a little banter before we started to play, some knowledgeable advice about the course, and a bon voyage when we departed after a first class day. Michael Rees

The view from the clubhouse set the scene for the day, with the flags horizontal and the flagsticks bending with what was described by the locals as mere breeze. An extra layer of clothing was the only advice that we did not question, as we braced against the wind walking to the elevated first tee. Like several clubs around the country, the course runs through and within the race course, and this is very much in evidence on the first hole, where the green lies just beyond the rails. These first few holes are very different in character to the rest of the course, with a positive parkland feel, the first three and the last two holes have this character, but as soon as you stand on the fourth tee, the change is obvious.

Sun shines on sizzling Adams Martin Adams must have wished the season would never end after a blistering run of form that saw him win three events out of four. The Swanmore PGA Assistant pro celebrated his first tournament on foreign soil by winning the PGA in Hampshire Overseas Pro-Am at Vila Sol-Prime on the Algarve. Adams finished the fourball stableford on 106 points and picked up ÂŁ800 in prize money in the process. His group also won the team competition. Order of Merit winner Adam Hickling of Stoneham and Romsey’s Elliot Groves came tied second, two points behind after three days of stiff competition in the Portuguese sunshine. Adams, who came second in The PGA in Hampshire OoM, said: ‘I have never had such a good run in all my years as a pro, so I do not want the season to end! ‘I had to work hard to finish top. I was not really comfortable at the start as it was the first time I had played abroad in a pro tournament. ‘The conditions were not something I was used to. The grass was different, it was a tight course and I was four over after 12 holes on the first day. ‘But I have confidence in my game. I think I have always had the ability to grind back and I found a way to stay in contention.’

A win at last

Wade Ormsby won the Hong Kong Open to claim his first European Tour title‌ at the 264th attempt. The 34-year-old Australian beat the two men who topped the Race to Dubai fields, with Tommy Fleetwood second and Hampshire’s Just in Rose third. ‘It means a lot to me,’ Ormsby told the European Tour website. I’ve played a lot of golf in Europe everywhere - with a few bumps along the way. ‘But it’s pretty cool to get a win this late in your career.’

Why has the Green Jacket weighed so heavily on Danny Willett’s shoulders? Danny Willett has experienced the moment which every golfer across the world dreams about: clinching Masters victory at Augusta. But things have not been easy for the 30-year-old Englishman since becoming the first Briton to don the iconic green jacket in 20 years. The Yorkshireman has not won a tournament since that day in April, 2016, dropping to 66th in the world rankings after reaching a There’s not a day that goes by when I don’t think about winning the Masters. I think about nearly every shot that week. I remember how I felt at each point throughout the week. It’s amazing how you get the same feelings on weeks when you win or do well.

Top of the world: Danny Willett enjoying the afterglow of his 2016 Masters victory - his last tournament success

career-high ninth following his Augusta triumph. He has struggled for form and fitness since, while also splitting with his coach, caddy and manager in the past 12 months. In a candid blog for the European Tour website, Willett has discussed the mental pressure of being a Masters winner, coping with a painful back injury and making difficult changes as he aims to resurrect his career. This is what he had to say:

try and find some form. It was hard and I didn’t play great but I finished 11th at Nedbank and ultimately finished runnerup in the Race to Dubai, for the second straight year.

Ultimately I’ll be able to look back on that day and be thankful for all that it has given me but it’s not always easier dealing with the aftermath. There’s been quite a few low points over the last few months. At the end of 2016, I was in contention in the Race to Dubai and I just didn’t want to play golf. Think about that. It’s utterly ridiculous. I had entered the HSBC Champions in China, Turkey, Nedbank and Dubai - four of the biggest tournaments of the year - and I didn’t want to play. I just didn’t feel good enough to compete. So I had a few options. I could withdraw or I could play and work my butt off to

The truth is very few people know the sacrifices I make to try and be the best golfer I can be. They don’t know that I’ll get up at 5am to get some practice in or hit the gym, before my son wakes up at 6.30am and I need to help my wife with him. They don’t know that I’m still working my nuts off in the gym and on the range only to go out and shoot a 75.

Clearly it’s not easy to replicate that feeling but once you’ve had them, you’ll let them go, and that week in April was unforgettable to say the least. What’s funny is that we, as golfers, spend so much time practising for those moments, working on our swings, those chip shots, pressure putts, how to deal with being in contention mentally but no one ever really prepares you for what happens next, after you achieve greatness like that.

I knew it needed some swing changes, and changes in the way I prepared, to allow me to get healthy again and starting getting back to the form I know I’m capable of.

Family man: Danny fits practice and time in the gym alongside his responsibilities as a dad

When I swing good, I feel good. Both mentally and physically. But when I was swinging badly, I was putting strain on my back and it became an issue. It was annoying as working out didn’t hurt it, drills didn’t hurt it, but firing into the ball at full speed and just being a little off could cause a lot of pain. It ended up taking over my game as I’d be taking painkillers in the morning after waking up in pain, getting an hour of physio before each round, playing the round with a swing that hurt, then needing an hour of physio after the round. I was just knackered. Honestly, the injury became a self-fulfilling issue as I wasn’t playing well, which hurt my back but I would go home and hit balls for five hours at home in a position that was aggravating my back more.

Golf is a strange sport. When you’re playing well, it seems very easy, but when you’re struggling it feels like all the time on the range makes no difference out on the course. It’s amazing that when you get in contention in a golf tournament, nothing else matters other than winning. When things are going well, you feel like you have a force-field around you. Ultimately, I want to know that every day I spent working on this game I was working to get better and never gave up. It’s not easy but that’s golf and that’s why I love it. I’ve had a strained relationship with it in recent months and there were times I felt I was falling out of love with the game, but at the end of the day I’ll never stop loving this game and I won’t let a few poor results stop me from working to get better.

High-five Richard tops merit order Richard Wallis returned to the top of the pile in the PGA South region following a threeyear absence after claiming his fifth Order of Merit title. Having been in pole position for most of the seven event Order of Merit schedule, Wallis secured his win after finishing tied for 16th place in the Crisp Thinking PGA Farnham Finale OOM. He said: ‘After winning the PGA Southern Open at Cuddington, the possibility of another Order of Merit beckoned. It’s

fantastic to be back in contention again.’ PGA Cup star Andy Raitt (St. George’s Hill) shot a 13-under par total of 203 to win the Crisp Thinking PGA Farnham Finale OOM by four strokes, along with a very handsome £2,222. Raitt reeled off rounds of 68, 68 and 67 to mark an emphatic victory, which means he finishes second in the PGA South region Order of Merit. ’The figures look good, but I was fighting a

pull both days,’ said Raitt, who played a key role in helping Great Britain & Ireland beat America at Foxhills.

of 71, 66 and 70 earned the Left Handed Golf at Silvermere player a runner’s-up cheque of £1,267.

Third spot in the PGA South region Order of Merit went to Richings Park’s Chris Rodgers, whose victory in the CK Group PGA Southern Professionals Championship at King’s Hill and second place in the PGA Surrey Open at Clandon Regis always made him a strong contender.

Romsey’s Elliot Groves and Oxford Golf Centre’s Adam Wootton tied on 209 for third place to take home £925 each.

Chris Gane finished the season strongly with a second-place finish at Farnham. Rounds

Wootton put together a 10-under par 62 in the afternoon. This would have been a new course record, had there not been a lift and place ruling following the rain earlier in the week.

Gusty Golf! Playing in the wind is always an exhausting experience. There is that sense of losing control as a swift gust takes your ball to places on the course it has never been before! Having recently played a charming links course on the Isle of Wight and witnessing many a golfer battle against what could only be described as a gale force breeze, I thought it only too appropriate to give you a few handy hints on how to control your game on a blustery day. Firstly make sure you keep warm, this sounds like an obvious bit of advice but a northerly breeze can really chill your bones and stiffen your muscles so a wind proof top is vital. If you are someone who doesn’t like to feel at all restricted a sleeveless top will keep you mobile but your body cosy. You need to be aware of how much wind you are dealing with and what effect this will have on the shot. Take a good look around you and see where the flag or trees are moving in the wind. (The clouds will also give you an idea of direction but not so helpful on speed! It is windier up there!) The best way to check the amount of breeze is to throw a handful of grass or leaves up in the air. Notice what direction they disappear in and how quickly they move. This will give you an idea as to how the wind will affect your ball. Be aware of where your playing partners are stood and whether or not they have their mouths open–they will not appreciate being pelted by grass. Once you have ascertained whether the wind is helping, hindering you or moving across the hole you can decide which shot to hit. Set-up is key when there is a strong wind, widen your stance ever so slightly to give you a firm base and try to keep the ball low by playing it slightly further back in your stance (if you are playing into the wind). Too many golfers try and do battle with the wind rather than work with it. Do not try and hit it harder just because it is breezier. This will lead to you losing rhythm and balance and ultimately control leading to a poor shot. It also imparts more spin on the ball making it balloon into the wind. If the wind is blowing in your face check how quickly it moves behind you when you throw the grass up. Play the ball back in your stance and to keep it really low lean slightly on your front foot. You will be surprised how much the wind affects distance. Then take more club than you would normally take and swing it easy, you will have far more control over the ball. Use a shorter swing and feel as though you punch the ball by keeping the club lower on the follow through. If playing a tee shot into wind then tee it lower to stop it from rising too high in the air.

If the wind is helping, why not try playing a more lofted wood off the tee such as a 3 or 5 wood. This gets the ball up in the air quickly and will catch the breeze sooner than a driver. Take care not to tee the ball up too high with the more lofted wood as you run the risk of going straight underneath it. If you are faced with a cross wind than pick a point to aim to that will allow the ball to be blown back to the centre by the wind. Use the wind to help your shots – do not try and fight it. You won’t win. Good Luck! If you would like to pep up your game this Winter then I am available for lessons on all aspects, including psychology. Feel free to give me a call on 07780 684334.

Emma shows what can be achieved Last month I mentioned that this month’s article would feature one of my clients who, over a period of time, has changed her swing action and is now, through much hard work, reaping the benefits!

From an action that was very similar in characteristics to Louis Oosterhuizen, with the club very open to its path just before impact and very closed to the path soon after, to an action that is more like Sergio Garcia’s, where the club is fairly square to the arc well before and after impact. As I mentioned, through a lot of hard work and dedication Emma’s game has reached a high level of consistency. It has certainly come a long way from where we started when her handicap was nineteen! Emma, who is now a member of the English Ladies Golf Team, finished second in the English Ladies Stoke Play Championship in 2017. She has also had some great finishes in America, including a record breaking seven under par score of sixty five at the Final College Shootout in Las Vagas. All this success last season has meant that she has shot up The World Golf Rankings from approximately one thousandth to around a hundred a thirtieth. She has also recently been named to represent England in the South American Amateur, held in Argentina. Her dream of playing in the Curtis Cup draws ever closer. In the photos, Emma’s old action is the one where she is wearing red trousers. As you can see, coming into impact the club is lined up with her left arm and, if you notice, the clubface is very open, (looking directly away from her). This approach to the ball means that the clubface has to rotate a great deal in a short space of time to be square at impact. By contrast, the newer swing is more rounded and the body angles are maintained. Notice how the shaft of the club is lined up with her right forearm coming into impact. Although the picture is a little blurry, see how the face of the club appears to be aiming at the ball. Note that post impact the club is left of the ball and not twisted. With this type of hitting action, who knows what Emma will achieve!!

I initially changed Emma’s swing to a flatter one, not just because it would make that amazing hitting action more achievable but, with the steep swing she started with, she had a tendency to hit the ball from the toe of the club. Also there were certain characteristics of her old swing that would suit her newer action. More of how Emma achieved those changes in future Tee Times articles. If you need some help deciding how to improve your striking please contact me. Mobile: 07787 887578 Email: martin.butcher@aim.com Website: mbtourcoach.com
