It All Comes Down to Ewe…
The submissions are in and it’s time to vote! 

Head Greenkeeper Simon Freeman with two of his newest hires

We’re excited to introduce you to our newest staff members, a trio of gorgeous Zwartbles sheep who will be assisting our Head Greenkeeper, Simon Freeman, with course maintenance. But in order to properly welcome these ladies, we need your help naming them!

The submissions are in and we’ve narrowed down the selection to our favourite 3 for each sheep. We now need you to vote for YOUR favourites! All finalists will receive one of our famous Mach Dunes Black Sheep Head Covers, and the creative lads and lassies who thought up the three most popular names will enjoy a complimentary 2-night stay for four in a luxurious cottage, unlimited golf during their stay, and a chance to meet our trio of plucky sheep (season-dependent)!

The smallest in our flock, she’s shy and prefers Simon keep a safe distance. Maybe she knows something we don’t…

The most confident of the trio is also the biggest. She has taken on the role of leader and matron.

The friendliest of the flock, though she only takes to Simon when he has biscuits in his pocket.

The voting period has ended. Stay tuned to find out the winning names!

*To participate, complete the form at above before 11:59 PM on 5 July 2019 (GMT).
