New Forest golfer Ellie Mans wins 2022 Dorset Girls Championship at Ashley Wood Golf Club
BROKENHURST Manor and Barton on Sea golf clubs' 16-year-old star Ellie Mans has won the 2022 Dorset Girls Championship at Ashley Wood Golf Club.
The reigning back-to-back Brokenhurst Manor Ladies Championship winner took the overall victory with 70 (-1) and 75 (+4) rounds, which also won her the best first 18-hole gross trophy.
On a challenging course with rolling hills in the wind and rain, she sank eight birdies and made par 20 times.
Amateur golfer Mans recently played her first professional golf event in the Rose Ladies Series at Brokenhurst Manor, in which she finished joint-second-highest amateur, five-over-par with a gross 75.
Mans now heads to the Berkshire Golf Club, where she will compete in the Women's Amateur Astor Salver. Since 2018, the Critchley Salver (Sunningdale) has combined with the Astor Salver at the Berkshire to create the Critchley Astor Salver, which qualifies for World Amateur Golf ranking points.
After that, she will enjoy a well-deserved rest for half-term before catching up on A-levels work.
The talented teenager first picked up golf clubs at the age of six before making her county debut four years later. She also played for U10 Hampshire & IOW County Cup tennis team and Dorset County Hockey before playing in the Junior Netball World Cup.
