Fitz Golf Tour 2016 - Dorset
This year's tour was once again organised by our Captain, Mike Hamment. Day 1 saw us at Dudsbury GC - a parkland course for our warm up competition on a bright but very breezy day.
On Day 2, we had 25 holes at Isle of Purbeck GC a- a heathland course with superb views over Poole Harbour and towards the Isle of Wight. Some of the holes were spectacular but the strong winds made scoring very difficult. The Captain had us playing different formats for each 9 in the morning and the afternoon 7 holes.
Day 3 saw the main singles competition at Broadstone GC - possibly the best course in the area. Almost every hole could be classified a "signature hole" with some long carries and heavy rough. The greens were not at their best but the wind had finally dropped! Brian Smith triumphed with a creditable 33 points
Accommodation was at the King's Head Hotel in Wimborne. 15-16 people played each day with 13 tourists playing all 3 days. Charlie Brown and Martin Dinkele were new tourists and we welcomed Rob Wood and Stephen Rhodes for their first games with Fitz GS.
