Formby’s junior team kicked off their summer league matches this weekend with a well fought victory against West Lancashire Golf Club.
At home and in glorious conditions, Formby landed a 3.5-1.5 Matchplay win.
Well played boys! #1884
Congratulations to Hesketh Golf Club on their victory today in the Bill Renison Trophy with some fantastically consistent golf across the team.
Special mention must be made to a course record equalling 66 from Ormskirk Golf Club’s James Nash.
Fabulous day, great golf! #1884
Congratulations to Formby Hare winner Greg Holmes from Royal Birkdale.
Greg, a previous Hare winner, shot two amazing rounds of 69 and 70! Very well played and a worthy victor #1884
Pictured below is Greg with 2023 Formby Golf Club Captain David Hopkins.
Many congratulations to +3 handicapper and Lancashire player Tom Hughes on his gross 66 in Saturday’s Spring Meeting Day 2!
With the changes to the course recently this is a new course record! Huge potential for the future and we will watch his development with eager anticipation.
Tom, with a bogey free round, has put at least some of his success down to the competition he faced from playing partner Anthony Stirling who himself shot an amazing 68.
The quality of young golfer at the club is now higher than ever before, it is certainly a future to look forward to!
