Amazing views, a stunning course and perfect weather made for an incredible day in the latest Linksnet Network Day at the Isle of Purbeck Golf Club.

The Isle of Purbeck course is one of the most spectacular in the south and is steeped in history, as it was the course that Enid Blyton used to play whilst writing her Famous Five children’s mystery stories.

There was certainly some mystical shots played out on the course, non more so than on the Nearest the Pin hole.. Dave Woods almost took the honours using every conceivable contour of the hole and gravel path, but his ball fell just short of the green. It was left to Forbes Cutler to hit a beauty and take home the bottle of Hayman’s Gin.

The Nearest the Pin in Two on the 18th saw a superbly controlled approach from Mark Williams to within a few feet of the pin to win the bottle of Merser Rum.

In the Team Competition, a ‘ghost’ or ‘blind’ player was drawn for the one three ball team, and that blind player Carol Brown helped George CopleyDanny Kendall and Dave Cooksley win a Titleist cap, sleeve of Pro V1s and Skechers golf towel each. Their total of 86 points pipped Carol’s own team by just 1 point!

In the Individual Stableford competition in fourth place was George Copley with 35 points winning a Skechers shoe voucher.

In third place also with 35 points but beating George on a countback was Dave Cooksley, who won a fourball voucher to return to the Isle of Purbeck.

The runner-up spot went to Leon Loberman with 36 points, for which Leon was rewarded with a £250 Stewart Golf voucher.

However in first place, and continuing his incredible form of late, was Dave Woods with an excellent 39 points winning himself a Stewart Golf R1-S Push trolley, a StaffPro cart bag and some Stewart Golf accessories.
