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.

The Club is proud to be hosting the inaugural MKM Junior Open on Saturday 17th June. Valeria Dunn is organising the event and has asked if members could please support the event on the day by volunteering to help things run smoothly for our visitors.
If you are available to help, even for an hour or so, could you please email Valeria on firstname.lastname@example.org
Your help would be very much appreciated.
The BRS online tee booking system has now been implemented for our club. For members, this means tees can be reserved and Opens booked and paid for in advance.
To reserve tees as a member, you will need to register with the system using your CDH number as your username:
BRS Member Registration (also accessible from the website – Members dropdown menu)
Booking and paying for Opens in advance is completed here:
Book Opens (also accessible from the website – Allendale Opens 2017 on the home page).
While the primary purpose of this system is to simplify tee booking and payment for visitors, there are significant benefits to the club if members also make use of this facility.
