Knowle Gold Medal - A win for Joe Harvey

by Office

on Sun August 18, 2019

The Knowle Gold Medal is the penultimate event in Gloucestershire Golf Union’s Duchess Salver Order of Merit Series.

The strongest field of the year assembled and amongst the favourites, playing off handicaps of +4, were defending champion, Nick Day (Henbury), Tillman Trophy Winner, Joe Harvey and Berkshire Trophy Winner, Haider Hussain (both Kendleshire).

It has been a difficult week for our green staff, striving for their usual excellent standard of tournament presentation, against a backdrop of very heavy rain most days before the event. However they coped admirably and although a breezy day, the set up was ideal for good scoring. 

So it proved with Harrison Otley-Woood (Cotswold Hills) surging into the lead with a four under par round of 66. He was closely followed by Nick Day and brother Mike on 67, with their Henbury Club mate Jonny Daniel on 68. The other player to beat par was Joe Harvey who was still in contention after scoring 69.


In afternoon, Mike Day and Jonny Daniel quickly fell out of contention and Harrison couldn't quite match the brilliance of the morning round. It was therefore left to Joe Harvey and Nick Day playing together in the last group. With a one shot lead, It looked almost certain that Nick would win yet another Gold Medal, but an uncharacteristic bogey six on his 36th hole left a chance for Joe, who duly capitalised with a birdie and a round of 67 for a winning total of 136.

Dan Sheehan came third with a steady total of 140. Dan also won the inaugural Rodney Tugwell Trophy, awarded to the best placed Knowle finisher.

Congratulations to Joe and thank you to our many volunteers who make the event one of the best in the region.




Club Championship 2019

by Office

on Sat July 27, 2019

The original date for this year's Club Championship fell victim to the weather, but thankfully there was no repeat today with warm sunshine and a Course in impeccable condition greeting the players in Round 1.

Scoring was very good in the morning. Former Champion David Lake with a level par 70, Captain Elect Phil Wring with a 69, excellent 68's from Dan Sheehan and Ceri Fearnley, meant they trailed the leader Brad Selwood by just one shot after his eventful round of 67.

In the afternoon, scoring improved further and the golf really was of the highest quality and testament to the amount of good golfers we have at the Club. Paul Beament and Lee Bryant battled it out for the net prize with some brilliant scoring.

Dave Lake added another 70 for a solid total of 140 that in other years would ordinarily be good enough for the title.

This however was bettered by Ceri Fearnley who shot 69 for a fine total of 137. In a really close finish Brad Selwood repeated his 67 from the morning round to post a tremendous total of 134 and with Dan Sheehan hitting some wayward tee shots over the closing holes, this looked like it might be good enough.

However with some excellent recovery play, Dan held his nerve to hole from 15 feet on the 18th for a birdie and a round of 65 for a winning total of 133, the lowest total recorded in the history of the event.

Another great day at Knowle GC.

Congratulations to Dan and all our prize winners.

Everyone at the Club will be delighted to hear that Caley McGinty has been named in the England Women's Squad for 2019.

This recognition is well deserved after a string of outstanding performances in 2018. The phrase "work hard and let success make the noise" could well have been coined with Caley in mind, but as her matchplay record shows, she is a ferociously determined competitor and will undoubtedly make the most of the opportunities this selection provides.

Caley is also hoping to secure a Golf Scholarship in the US later this year. Click Here For a promotional video that's been produced.

Congratulations Caley and family.
