NEWS ROUND UP
A quick mention to Harvey Randall who is in a recent spell of good form, winning both the Ferndown and Parkstone Junior Opens, a fairly unique feat. He won the Paul Donnelly Trophy in the junior open at Ferndown, with a gross 76, as well as picking up nearest the pin on the 14th, knocking it to within 1’ 5”.
He also shot lowest Gross at the Parkstone junior open with a gross 71 and narrowly missed out on the lowest Nett score. Keep it up Harvey!

Photograph of the week…
Just one from the General Manager this week where, walking back down the 3rd in temperatures of 30 degrees plus, he really did feel like jumping in the pond, decided against it and took a picture instead!
