Wood takes Junior Open Title 2019

A disastrous start was transformed into glory by Jacob Wood, the winner of the annual Matlock Junior Golf Open.

Wood, of the Renishaw Park club at Sheffield, saw his first-tee drive fly out of bounds and forced him to card a triple-bogey seven.

But somehow, he bounced back and some excellent scoring over the next 17 holes, including a stunning back nine of 33 gross (27 net) secured the title for Wood with a net score of 63.

Thirty young golfers from 14 clubs contested the open.  Wood was chased all the way by Joe Streets, of the Chesterfield club, who carded the same 63 net but lost out on a back-six countback.

The best gross winner was Hannah Morrison, of Chapel-en-le-Frith, with a score of 72.

Golf Monthly Review

Feature article in Golf Monthly for November 2018

On the southern fringes of the beautiful Peak District, this turned out to be a real find! You encounter a delightful course surrounded by glorious scenery with rolling hills, far-reaching views, rocky crags and glimpses of the spooky ruins of Riber Castle.

There are some cracking par-4s, most notably the 5th, 6th, 9th and 16th, and everyone will remember the par 3 10th at the far end of the course which requires a confident shot over a ravine of ferns, heather and gorse. The 11th fairway is home to the Cuckoo Stone, a large rock under a hawthorn tree which serves as the clubs logo so if you like your golf scenic, natural, varied, testing, at times quirky but above all fun, then Matlock really should be on your ‘to play’ list.
