September Medals: played off the red and blue tees respectively, the results can be found on the website at Juniors/Junior Results.
As the school holidays and beating season are still in progress, the turnout was relatively low but the weather was perfect and the standard of golf in both competitions was particularly strong.
Congratulations to Jack Millar and to Daniel Twizell, both playing in their first competitions since joining the Club.
Regional Junior Competition: A few days ago I emailed to say that 4 of our Junior Members had qualified to represent Northumberland in the regional competition against Durham and Cumbria.
It was held yesterday at Hartlepool Golf Club and happily for us it was won by Northumberland. For the past 5 years it has been retained by Durham, so it was particularly exciting for Northumberland to win the trophy in 2017.
I am sure that all of you and, in fact, everyone connected with Allendale Golf Club will join me in congratulating Carl Baxter, Jack Campbell, Haydn Rutherford and Jake Reed for playing their part in winning the competition for Northumberland.
Special mention should be made of Jack, who had a very good round and finished overall third in his category so receiving an individual prize.
I think that we should also thank the boys’ parents/family members who have accompanied the boys “around Northumberland” to the different venues throughout the summer.
Apart from Haydn, the other 3 will be too old for this particular competition next year so we are looking to you younger ones to join the Northumberland Golf Tour in 2018 to maintain the standard that these lads have set!!
Jonny and I would like to invite you all to our Captains day on Sunday May 21st. We are proposing invitation limited to one guest per member.
Meeting at the Club at approx 9.30 for first tee off 10ish.
Please can you let us know numbers by May 18th for light buffet etc.
Hope to see as many of you as possible.
Pat & Jonny
