Hampshire’s junior girls fly the flag at Blackmoor

Hampshire put in an amazing performance last week at Blackmoor GC’s Junior Open. Hannah Hellyer won overall Nett & closest the pin, Charlotte Dack best gross and Ellie Mans won best nett (AM) and the Huntsman Trophy in the PM with 41 Stableford points. Congratulations also go to Meon Valley who came 2nd in the team competition.

By all accounts, Ellie and her mum Nikki (who provided us with this report) had quite a day! It began at 06:40, a puncture 4 miles from the competition, a missed tee time, a collection roadside by Blackmoor GC (thank you Michelle!) & teeing off on arrival without even so much as a practice swing!

Over 36 holes Ellie never scored over a 6 on a course with lots of “interesting” Abraham Trophy memories but she banished her nightmare 13th hole and replaced with with two very accomplished pars!

A very memorable Hampshire day & handicap cuts en route as CSS was 74 for the ladies! Well done to all the Hampshire juniors who took part.
