Isle of Wight Golf Union

The Isle of Wight Golf Union

The Union is open to all male members of Island Golf Clubs with a handicap.

We visit as many courses as we can in a rotation of the competitions year on year.



Some of the competitions are listed below and posters, together with entry sheets, are on your club notice boards.


The Golf Union run the following

matchplay events throughout the summer:

  • Singles Scratch Knockout

  • Singles Handicap Knockout

  • The Roger Webb Mixed

  • Foursomes Matchplay

  • The Island Fourball Knockout

During the season the IOW Golf Union also run one day events.



Many thanks to Cowes Golf Club for their hospitality on Sunday.


Special mention to Peter Eames who carried out starting duties all day, as well as helping with the organisation beforehand.


Also thank you very much to Angie, who kept the bar open till the bitter end, it was much appreciated by the afternoon competitors.


The competition itself saw Nat Riddett produce another excellent round of golf, 2 under par, to retain the trophy he won at Osborne last year.


The next two in the scratch showed that age is no barrier to playing good golf, as current Island Champion George Foreman took 2nd, and Derek Wright 3rd spot.


In the Handicap event, David Williams from Cowes went around in an excellent 39 to win from Howard Manning by one.


Howard came even closer in the Vets’ event, losing out on the back 9 to Barry Allington.


Thanks to all those who entered, and look forward to seeing you all at Newport on 29th May for the Glyn Jones Event.
