Phil Purvis
Chair of the Management Committee

In 2017 the members of Broadstone Golf Club gave Phil the honour of being Club Captain and he is now having the opportunity of repaying them by being able to work on their behalf as a member of the committee as the club moves forward.

A retired Police Officer, who now works as a Forensic Collision Investigator, Phil previously served on committee from 2010 - 2016, including serving as its Chairman, and during this time helped on a number of major projects including the appointment of the current General Manager and Club Professional.

Looking to the future, he is looking to assist the club in facing its many challenges as it looks to maintain its position as the premier club in Dorset.

Following the 2021 AGM, Phil was elected as Chair of the Committee.

Rob Atherton
Committee Member

Rob has been managing the scratch team at Broadstone for 6 years now and in doing so, has got to know many of the members, especially the younger members, and they have seen how passionate he is about the club doing well and the golf course moving forwards.

In his working life, he has managed large teams on a day to day basis at Sunseeker, working to tight budgets but still delivering a high value product where quality in presentation is paramount, as well as driving down costs to make more profit. 

Returning to golfing matters, playing a lot of golf at different courses locally as well as cross other counties, helps him see where the club sits in relation to them and where Broadstone can improve to give a better experience for travelling golfers, but as importantly the day to day membership.
