Wiltshire U18 boys produced one of the performances of the year to beat a very strong Glamorgan side 10 to 5 and win the 2018 Channel League, the match took place today 13th October in very testing conditions at Broome Manor Golf Club. with the wind at times gusting at over 40 mph actually standing up was a major achievement. Both teams came into the match unbeaten so this game was the title decider and with everything on the line the standard of golf was fantastic, a massive thank you to Kay Hall and all her superb staff at Broome Manor Golf Club for looking after us so well. Broome Manor Golf Club are fantastic supporters of Wiltshire county golf at all levels especially juniors and we are extremely grateful for their support. I could not be more proud of the way the boys played and conducted themselves today, they were brilliant a credit to the county, their clubs,parents and themselves. Full report to follow shortly.

In his final match as Wiltshire's seniors captain Bill Cardno (Chippenham GC) led his team against Glamorgan at Bowood. Unfortunately, as with most of the matches this season, his team were unable to put in a compelling performance coming up short once again 6-9. Bill, has been an excellent representative for Wiltshire and has captained his teams, for three years, with a mixture of enthusiasm and infectious good humour . His pre-match briefings are renown for always ending with a passionate "don't give them any putts" Wiltshire Golf thanks Bill for his three years of service and we all wish him well for the future

On Monday 3rd September, Broome Manor GC played host to the Wiltshire Golf Ladies and Junior Girls Autumn Foursomes and the Lumley Foursomes. There were twenty-two pairs representing thirteen clubs.
The day was ideal for golf - warm and sunny. The course at Broome Manor played extremely well with running fairways and greens that were quick but true. The well-placed ditches proved a test to some golfers and judging whether to lay up or risk carrying them caused much discussion.
