The Golf At Goodwood Club Championships week took place between 6 and 14 August and what a week it was!
Ladies Club Championship
We started off with the ladies taking to The Park Course on Saturday 6 August. With beautiful weather on both days, the big question was whether reigning champion Yasmin Hang was going to retain her trophy. It was looking good after day one leading with a gross 75. Lorraine Dunabin also had a fantastic round leading the first day with a nett 64.
Day two took place on The Downs Course with Yasmin on the charge and winning her fourth Club Championship in a row. Lorraine’s good form also continued on day two, and she became the Ladies Nett Club Champion.
The Kennels were offering an optional extra of a cream tea after the event which was enjoyed by all of our lady members on The Putting Green where the prize giving was held.
A huge congratulations to our ladies. Full results below:

Over the two days we had a healthy field of 63 players taking to the course. Simon Jardine lead from round one with a gross 73 and kept his cool into round two winning by 9 shots. He also managed to play in the Men’s Club Championship at the end of the week and come fourth overall gross.
The Nett competition was a little closer with our winner Michael Waite winning on countback with 144 over the two days. Our day one nett leader Storry Thrower put in an amazing nett 63, however two days in that heat proved too much to repeat it.

Men's Club Championships
We had a slight breeze for the Men’s Club Championships on Saturday 13 and Sunday 14 August that we hadn’t had as much with the other events, unfortunately being at the end of the heat wave the conditions were just as tough.
Day one took place on The Park course with both Simon Raniga and Joshua McCartain taking a lead into day two.
Simon continued his good form into day two to become the Men's Nett Club Champion for 2022
As day two evolved, it was clear to see that the eventual Golf At Goodwood Men’s Club Champion was going to be within those final groups. With the competition looking close, a crowd had begun to form to see those last few groups in and it all came down to the final threeball of Josh, Jamie Burchell and Harry Callow.
We’re very proud to have had three Juniors in our final group, all of which have been members of the club since a very young age.
With the drama unfolding, Jamie Burchell had a 12ft putt to secure a play-off, which just missed to the right of the hole. It was then down to Josh to put away a short but pressured putt which he did in style to become the Men's Club Champion.
Josh has been a member at Golf At Goodwood since he was 11, so a huge congratulations to him and all of those who took part over the week.
