72 young Juniors from around the county visited Allendale Golf Club on Sunday, 7 July, to take part in the Northern Junior Golf Tour.
Our only participant in this year’s Tour, Daniel Twizell, sealed what had been a very enjoyable and successful day overall by winning the ‘top’ competition played off the yellow tees.
Congratulations to Daniel, who, with only one more venue to go, Bedlingtonshire GC, is in a very strong position on the Tour’s Order of Merit to feature in the Regional Final at Foxton GC, Alnmouth, in September.
Thanks to everyone who contributed to the success of the day, including those who supported the catering and donated items for the tombola. As ever, the uniqueness of our course and our home-made food remain the main attractions for visitors to Allendale!
After some remarkable weather for golf, it was back to proper Allendale conditions yesterday, except for a lack of wind. Just right for our Junior April Medals off the red and blue tees!
The results are on the Junior Results page – see below. For the first competition and with some new, first time competitors, there was some very good golf played across the board given the wet, trying conditions. Congratulations to winners, Daniel Twizell and Dylan Swaile. Both winners have had their handicaps cut as a result, with Daniel on the edge of gaining his official, National CONGU handicap status.
Elsewhere, it was good to see Owen Forbes and Tom Clarke lowering their handicaps and so many others coming in at or close to net par. So, everything looks set fair for close and high quality competitions among Allendale Golf junior members going forward.
Best of luck to Daniel who is playing at Warkworth today in the first round of the Northern Golf Tour.
