Whale Trophy 2017

This year saw a field of 24 juniors competing for the Whale Trophy at Bishopswood. In recent years this major junior trophy which was donated by Graham Smith has been won by a visiting player however this year I am delighted to report has been won by one of our own players namely Jamie Ryan. Jamie has been showing rapid improvement during the last 6 months and it was only a matter of time before his improved golf swing would translate into improved scores. Well on this occasion the lid came of and Jamie won the event by a mile by scoring 59 points. This is perhaps the highest number of point ever recorded at an Bishopswood event and resulted in Jamie being cut by 13 shots!!!

Well done Jamie.

Junior Report July 2017

We are now mid-term with regards our golfing year and I am very pleased with the development of our Junior players, which I am sure will continue.
Bishopswood have now played 4 league open matches and our juniors have done us proud.
Henry Dutton is leading the Boys section with 116 points and is 6 clear of his nearest rival. Gemma Burgess constantly performs at a high standard and lies in second place in the Girls section. Her win at the very difficult Oak Park course against both the boys and girls with 36 points was a brilliant performance.
It really is great to see the increasing numbers of girls playing golf with 12 players playing in the Junior League, representing 7 clubs.
Rory Bush had a fantastic 41 points at The Hampshire and Fred went off the planet when he scored 50 points (yes, 50) at Test Valley and is now playing his golf off the white tees.
I must also mention Jamie Ryan who has joined the league team this year and has scored 30 points and more in all his three games.
We are currently third in the League which means we are now becoming increasingly competitive when compared with other clubs. This is clearly down to the constant coaching programme provided by Steve Ward and, of course, the real enthusiasm by what is a very young but progressing number of junior members.
Kevin Fleet and I are also keen to see the other junior members progress and will look to provide competitive but fun golf during the school holiday period. We have seen a number of very talented golfers progressing from the coaching, so the outlook is good.
Our next major event is the Whale Trophy and Junior League Open being held at Bishopswood on Saturday, 15th July.
Whilst our league team will do their best against the 6 other visiting clubs, we also encourage our non-league members to play in a competition that runs behind the main event.
We are very fortunate to have Graham Smith as our main sponsor of this event, as well as Ian Dixon, both of whom provide prizes in support of this big club junior day. If you want to see some good golf, just pop down for the afternoon as these kids are worth watching.

Cheers everyone,


Martin Smith and Kevin Fleet
