L-R: Harrison Knights, Joel Tarry, Dave May and Rose Budd

It was a night of celebration last Saturday as the members of Westridge Golf Club gathered together to celebrate the achievements of the 2019 season and recognise the individual competition winners.

The star of the night was 14-year-old Joel Tarry from Cowes, who won a magnificent 6 major trophies including the Junior Club Championships, the Club Championships and the Annual League Cup. Joel only started playing 4 years ago but has already grown into a talented young player resulting in him being selected for the Hampshire Under 16 team for the 2020 season.

Speaking about his season, Joel has said:

“I’m delighted to have won so many competitions in the past year and hope to do just as well this coming year too. I’m also thrilled to have been asked to play for Hampshire and am really looking forward to this season and see if I can do even better.

“The Westridge Golf Centre is a fantastic place to learn how to play the game and I couldn’t have done this without the support of Mark Wright and his team as well as all the members at the Club, and my parents. Hopefully this is just the start though”.

The 2019 Captain, Dave May, said:

“I challenged Joel two years ago to win all the major trophies and he’s just about done it!  I’m absolutely delighted for him and look forward to seeing his development over the coming years – he’s definitely one to look out for!”.
