Sandy Lane, the Weymouth Golf Club Ladies Captain for 2021, recently presented a cheque for £1,753.86 to Richard Sloane the representative of the West Dorset branch of the Motor Neurone Disease Association. This was raised from many events and activities such as making and selling face masks during the pandemic and a fun Seaside-themed day. She also ran the Weymouth half marathon to raise funds.
Independently, her partner Geoff Kirby (83) raised £846 for the Motor Neurone Disease Assoc. by having his 18-inch hair cut off. His flowing locks were used by the Little Princess charity to make wigs for children with hair loss illnesses.
STOKES SALVER FINAL
On Sunday our scratch team unfortunately lost out in the final of the Stokes Salver after a fightback from Yeovil GC.
Little to choose between Weymouth and Yeovil after the opening foursomes matches on a sunny yet chilly morning. Both teams played some great golf but Weymouth edged proceedings by 2.5 – 1.5 going into the afternoon singles.
But home advantage on Yeovil’s tight par 71, Old Course helped the hosts to victory after winning the singles matches 6.5 – 1.5.
Match Result: Yeovil 8 – 4 Weymouth
Congratulations to Yeovil Golf Club, winning the 2022 Stokes Salver. The match was played in the right spirit and was thoroughly enjoyed by all. Despite the defeat, our team left Yeovil with their heads held high after a fantastic season. Thank you to Bob Mico (Club President) and other members who travelled to Yeovil to support the team!
Also, thank you to Yeovil Golf Club for hosting the final.

As the last putt drops in the hole on the Friday Open Scramble Event, Weymouth Golf Club can reflect on a very successful Festival of Golf week.
Starting with the Mens 4BBB on Saturday, The Mixed team event on Sunday, Ladies Scramble on Monday, Seniors Bowmaker on Tuesday, and the Open Scramble on Friday, the Golf Club welcomed 556 visitors and members to compete in these events.
Additionally, Wednesday saw 21 teams of 3, accompanied by a PGA professional playing in the very welcome return after 5 years of the popular Pro – Am… Wednesday also saw a very welcome, much needed, return of rain, lots of rain.
Special thanks go to the organising committee for putting the event together, Dan Carter and his Pro Shop team for the daily organisation, Nikki Adams and Jean Vile for daily registration and raffle sales, the army of ball spotters and Course Marshalls that kept the competitions flowing, our starter for the week, Steve Woolrich. Also, Gareth,
Steve and their teams in the Hardy Bar, and of course to Rob, Jimmy and their fantastic team whose presentation of the course, particularly our Greens, must have been the envy of many of our guests.
And last, but not least a big thank you to all our members and visitors for their wonderful support of the week.
Your participation raised £1500 for mine, and Ladies Captain Jo Booth’s chosen charities, those being the Paediatric Diabetes unit at DCH, and the Lantern Trust, which helps vulnerable people in the Weymouth and Portland area.
I hope you enjoyed your golf, and the hospitality, and we look forward to seeing you all next year, when we will do it all over again,
