Course Development

A new name to deliver a new standard

Here at Ferndown Golf Club our aim has always been one of continuous improvement; we never rest on the considerable laurels we've achieved over the years. Our efforts to make one of the UK's best golf courses better still for both members and visitors are relentless.

To enhance that push we've secured the services of a renowned expert in the support, direction and development of the maintenance of golf courses – Murray Long. Murray has launched a new venture called Golf Course Development Ltd and we have secured his 30 plus years of stellar greenkeeping expertise and experience for the benefit of the courses, the Club, our members and visitors.


If you don't know Murray, you'll know the courses he's helped to perfect

Murray has been Courses Manager at the globally famous Sunningdale Golf Club for the past nine years. In that time the Club's courses have become the two highest ranked inland courses in the UK and Ireland by Golf Monthly. In fact, under Murray's stewardship Sunningdale has become one of the only two venues on the planet to have two courses in the Top 100 world rankings.

Murray is leading the drive to develop the full potential of our wonderful courses and move the Club onward and upward towards the highest possible standards with practical and innovative course maintenance solutions.

His appointment is wonderful news for golf in Ferndown, golf in Dorset and golf in England.
