A great day for the Golf in the Wild Seniors Open yesterday with 51 entries – 48 recorded, 2 non-competition handicap ‘for fun’ entries (Rob Forster 41 points & Colin Chapman 24 points) & one untraced on CDH – Bob Allport – 31 points). Many thanks to all those who attended especially those who travelled significant distances to be there.
Most of all, congratulations to the four prize winners (for full results click here):
In addition, Malcolm Aitchison wins the lowest gross prize calculated by deducting the player’s handicap from the total points scored – in this instance 38 minus 9 = 29 – 4 points clear of the field.
We look forward to seeing everyone back again next year – Wednesday 12th June 2019 – put it in your diary now!
Last Saturday saw the inaugural Junior Open sponsored by MKM Building Supplies played at Allendale Golf Club. The event, held on a superb day for golf drew some 30 youngsters from clubs across the county, including Rothbury, Bellingham, Warkworth, Bedlingtonshire and Parklands as well as Hexham and Tynedale.
The Open was designed for players under 14 years of age in two categories – those with official CONGU handicaps and those starting out with junior/academy maximum 54 handicaps.
Mr Derek Telfer, Branch Director of MKM Hexham, was on hand to present the prizes to the winner and runner-up in each of these categories:
“Yellow Tees“ winner: Reuben Law, Rothbury; and runner-up Alfie Twelftree, Matfen Hall.
“Blue Tees” winner: Daniel Twizzel, Tynedale; and runner-up James Brison, Hexham.
