Captain’s Day success at Parley

The Captain’s Day at Parley Golf Centre proved a huge hit – with dozens of members driving up the fairways on the new course.

After the £250,000 investment in the course and practice facilities it was the first chance for members to go head-to-head.

Tony Pomeroy – captain this year – organised the Stableford competition which was won by the team of Michelle Keogh, Simon Hentrich and Dennis Wilkinson.

Alex Glew and Belinda Queirolo both excelled on the fairways and won the longest drive competitions.

And Dave Wilson and Michelle Sharp picked up the ‘nearest the pin’ titles for 2017.

The players afterwards made use of the café-bar where the trophies were presented.

Daryl Dampney, manager of the centre, said: “It was a great day with good weather and was enormous fun.

“The new course is bedding down nicely and the members really enjoyed the competition and playing against each other.

“All the competitions are played in an excellent spirit and everybody is already looking forward to next year.

“Anyone can turn up and use the course, range and practice facilities which are already extremely popular.”

Ladies to the fore at Parley

The growing army of lady members at Parley Golf Centre has been receiving complimentary instruction about competition golf.

Club pro Marcus Urbye has been nurturing the ladies’ section of the club and membership has soared since last summer.

Now he is giving tutorials on how various golf competitions work to help encourage the ladies to take part.

The success of the female section at Parley contrasts with national figures that have shown a slight decline.

In Great Britain, female participation in golf accounts for 12 per cent – a decline from 15 per cent in 2011.

Parley’s members include complete novices as well as more experienced golfers, but they are all attracted by the facilities.

There is an on-going £250,000 investment to make the centre opposite Bournemouth airport the stand-out practice facility in the region.

It also has a simulator, great driving range with robots as well as a beautiful nine-hole course and practice area currently nearing completion.

Marcus Urbye said: “The ladies really enjoy the golf, but also the social side. The clubhouse is a great place to meet and eat for members as well as non-members.

“After our female membership rose to such high levels there was a demand for lessons in how competitions in golf actually work; the different types of scoring and so on.

“So I ran a few sessions explaining it all so hopefully our members will enjoy some competition golf.

“We also have plenty of junior members, and many other youngsters who turn up regularly to play and practice.”
