Poult Wood Golf Course hosts first Southern Disability Open


On the hottest day of the year so far, eighteen golfers with varying degrees of disability participated in the first Southern Disability Open at picturesque Poult Wood. Councillor Pam Bates, Deputy Mayor of Tonbridge & Malling was on the first tee to greet the participants at the start of the competition.

Tonbridge & Malling Leisure Trust in conjunction with Kent Golf, hosted this launch competition which was broken down into three categories with an overall Southern Disability Open Champion. The results were as follows:


  • Steve Crocker from Horn Park Golf Club was the winner of the Men's Handicap, Scratch to 24 with 38 Stableford points
  • Phil Meadows was the winner of the Men's Handicap, Scratch 25 and above with 37 Stableford points
  • Hannie Harris from the Shire Golf Club was winner of the Ladies all Handicaps with 33 Stableford points
  • Steve Crocker was crowned the 2017 Southern Disability Champion


David Copsey Head Golf Professional at Poult Wood Golf Course said "It was a truly wonderful day. The golf course was in fantastic condition and it was so inspiring to see the level of golf played by all the competitors."

Jamie Blair, England Golf's Diability Manager said, "I would like to thank Poult Wood for hosting. The staff and club volunteers provided a fantastic experience that set the platform for a great day of golf. England Golf hope to continue to grow this event and create more regional events to bring all impairments together and showcase golf as a truly inclusive game."

Finally, Martin Guyton Chief Executive of the Trust also commented "We are extremely pleased to host the Southern Disability Open and to work with Kent Golf to create this new event for disabled players in the South East. The event has been a great success and we look forward to hosting the second Southern Disability Open in 2018."
