SENIORS MATCH – BELLINGHAM (HOME) -20th JUNE 2019

Thanks to everyone who took part in the away match at Bellingham on 23rd May – a fairly narrow defeat – losing 6-4 on a tough course is not a bad result.  We have the opportunity to exact revenge at Allendale on 20th June.  The provisional pairings will be:

Robin Down & Ian Crocker
Jim Hall & Ray Wilson
Robin Makepeace & Geoff Edwards
Dennis Cousins & John Colman
Peter Robinson & Derek Todhunter

Again, only five pairs will be required.

After the Bellingham away match, the scores on the doors are:

Dennis Cousins: 4 pts
Peter Robinson: 2 pts
Cliff Dalton: 3pts
Derek Todhunter: 3 pts
Ian Crocker: 3 pts
Ron Jamieson 2 pts
Jim Hall: 2 pts
Mike Carter: 1 pt
Mark Kimberley: 1 pt
Mike Metcalfe: 1 pt

Finally, don’t forget  the Golf in the Wild Open on Wednesday 12th June.  Many of you have entered already – thanks for that.  There will be full catering on the day – bacon or sausage sandwiches in morning followed by a lunch choice of homemade soup and sandwich, pie and peas, jacket potato with choice of fillings and side salad, quiche and salad, burgers and lasagne.

Junior April Medals

Hello all,

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.

Regards
Valeria
