Dunstable Downs GC Open a hole lot of fun

AFTER a 30-year wait Dunstable Downs Golf Club’s Junior Open attracted 51 competitors from 15 different clubs across Bedfordshire, Hertfordshire and Buckinghamshire on Thursday.

Played in glorious weather and with the course looking superb, the main prize was won by 12-year-old George Rocca from Little Hay Golf Club in Hemel Hempstead who shot a gross 89, nett 66, to beat Alex Garvey, from Radlett, into second place.

The excellent conditions allowed for some great scores with Brandon Black from Dunstable Downs winning the best gross prize with a score of 76.

All the Dunstable Downs boys took full advantage of playing at home and collected many prizes.

Alex Tipping won the U18 category and Ryan Craig was second in the U14 section.
