WELLOW GOLF CLUB 2017 SPRING RALLY
The ladies season is off and running. On May 10th 2017, The section hosted the Ladies Spring Rally.
The day saw over 120 ladies making up 17 teams, arrived from all over Hampshire on a beautiful sunny day, a vast contrast to last year’s very wet and windy start to their day.
So with spirits high and the sun shining, a shotgun start was scheduled for 9am, with the Wellow Lady members making sure all the teams found their correct starting points.
The day was a great success. The combination of a lovely presented course, pleasant weather and good food, meant that the reviews from the visiting ladies were very positive.
The club also managed to raise £365 for the Captains Charity , Meningitis Now .

Wellow Junior Section
2017 Season Preview
The New HAMPSHIRE JUNIOR LEAGUE (HJL)
South West Hants Junior League (SWHJL)has now been replaced with a new league called the Hampshire Junior League, which will be known as HJL.
This is supplemented with a Junior Academy league which caters for new juniors taking up golf and will be for handicaps 36 to 54. A special short course will be used covering 9 holes totaling approx. 2000 yards.
A total of 5 teams will compete this year, namely Barton, Stoneham, Bramshaw, Romsey and Wellow.
The first fixture was held on 22nd April. Wellow came second in the HJL and fourth in the Academy League. This was a great result and it appeared everyone enjoyed the new competition. The next scheduled fixture on 6th May at Stoneham will have to be rearranged.
We are scheduled to play Barton in the next round of the Green Jackets competition on Sunday 21st May at Wellow.
We have been drawn to play Bramshaw in the 1st round of the Poppy Golf competition again at home.
Danny Harris has put together a Spring/ Summer Training programme for the Juniors. We are placing a lot of importance on this programme and other activities to try and recruit more juniors to the section.
The Easter Raffle took place under the guidance of Gill Lobb and Jane Leigh. A princely sum of 133 pounds was raised mainly through the generosity of our membership.
