General Manager
Ian Walton

Ian Walton, General ManagerFollowing 25 successful years in corporate banking, I had a career change and moved into golf club management in 2004. I was appointed General Manager of Ferndown Golf Club in May 2012. We have had a busy time since then managing a full golf calendar as well as improving the facilities at the club, including both golf courses and the clubhouse. Our most recent improvement being the creation of the Hennessy Room, our 1st floor bar and function room, enjoyed by members and visitors alike.

I extend a warm welcome to you all.


Assistant General Manager
Sue Helliker

Sue Helliker, Assistant General ManagerI joined the club in 2002, after spending 14 years across the road at the De Vere Dormy Hotel.

As well as looking after members and the clubs social activities I am the main point of contact for those visiting the club from a 4 ball to a corporate golf day. One of the highlights of the club year is the annual Peter Alliss Charity golf day which I have been running for the past 29 years (at the De Vere previously) raising over £1.2 million pounds in that time. The other busy times are our Festival Open weeks in May and August when we welcome over 1000 visiting golfers.

I look forward to helping you with any enquiries.
