What an amazing week we had for the Golf At Goodwood Club Championships and a huge well done to everyone who took part. We had a wide range of conditions but as usual, there were some outstanding performances.

Club Championships week started with the Ladies on Saturday 5 & Sunday 6 August. Day one saw some very tricky conditions on The Park Course with all players staying positive and determined to finish their rounds. After day one, Yasmin Hang was ahead with a score of 76 with Beth Yeoman close behind with a score of 77, all to play for going into day two.

Day two saw sunnier conditions but the wind was still proving to be a challenge. Hang had yet another exceptional round, with a score of 74, with Yeoman scoring 81. Hang had secured yet another Club Championship win. In the Nett competition, it was Natalie Morey who came on top with scores of 76 & 73. Stephanie Bevis won the Judy Saxon Memorial Vase.

Finally, it was time for the Men to take centre stage on Saturday 12 & Sunday 13 August. The event was full more than a week in advance with over 15 people joining the reserve list so competition was rife.

After day one on The Park course, last year’s champion Joshua McCartain was two shots ahead of William O’Halloran. It was great to see so many of Goodwood’s Juniors performing so well.

Throughout the weekend we had live scoring running so people could follow the battle for the lead and build the tension going into the last few holes.

The Downs course played host to day two and former Club Champion, Joe Sykes, took the lead when he reached -3 through 15 holes but unfortunately, it wasn’t enough as McCartain birdied four out of the last five holes to retain his title. Golf At Goodwood Junior, Dougal Rattray, scored 67 & 67 to secure the Nett Championship.
