Never one to rest on its considerable laurels, Ferndown Golf Club, in Dorset, has always had the aim of continuous improvement. Recent efforts, therefore, to make one of the UK’s best golf courses even better still for both members and visitors come as little surprise.
The Club is delighted to announce an agreement to work with a renowned expert in the support, direction and development of the maintenance of golf courses – Murray Long. Murray has launched a new venture, Golf Course Development Ltd, and is leading the drive to develop the full potential of the golf course at Ferndown. No doubt his 30 plus years of stellar greenkeeping expertise and experience will be of significant benefit to the courses, the Club, and Ferndown’s members and visitors alike.
Murray Long has been Courses Manager at the world renowned Sunningdale Golf Club for the past nine years. In that time, Sunningdale’s courses have become the two highest ranked inland courses in the UK and Ireland by Golf Monthly. Indeed, under Murray’s stewardship Sunningdale has become one of only two venues on the planet to have two courses in the Top 100 world rankings.
His appointment is wonderful news for golf at Ferndown GC, golf in Dorset and golf in England.
