Perfect Day

It was the best of days for the annual seniors match with Prudhoe.  The sun shone, the temperatures were not too high (they rarely are),  the company and the ‘oldies’ banter so good that the result hardly mattered although, for the record, Allendale did manage to win a close fought match, 6-4.

The images have been kindly supplied by Richard Hannam of Prudhoe Seniors ( and capture the essence of Golf in the Wild – perceptive shot of the day is our Dennis and Geoff, posing in the rough – where else 🙂
