This year’s Junior Golf Tour which was played at six different venues around Northumberland, including Allendale, during the spring and summer has now reached its conclusion.
Four of Allendale’s junior members participated and although none of them won their categories, which would have got them into the Northumberland team, they were all well placed in the final Order of Merit:
– Daniel playing in the white tees category finished in third place
– In the blue tees category for 13 years and over Tom Bloomer was sixth out of 13 players
– And in the 12 years and under, blue tees category, James was fourth and Luke fifth out of 16 participants
The tour once again proved to be a wonderful golfing experience for those who participated, playing on a variety of golf courses with a range of different people. Our juniors members played consistently well throughout the series.
On Saturday we completed the schedule of Junior competitions for 2019. Across the season it has been a pleasure to see the quality of golf achieved, the range of winners and the progress that everyone has made in improving their handicaps. And amidst all the season’s serious competitions, it was a delight to see so many of our juniors braving the challenge of playing with a parent/grandparent in the Super 6s!
The September Medal results are on the Junior Results Page. As ever, congratulations to the winners – Jake Reed, with a very impressive gross 34 off the yellow tees on holes 10-18, and Tom Bloomer (who had previously been left at the bus stop, literally, by Ian) with an equally impressive net 28 off the blue tees.
I hope that despite the competitions being completed I will continue to see you up playing some golf, as long as the weather allows.
I will be in touch in due course regarding the Golf Club Presentation Evening.
All the best
Valeria, Ian and Alwyn
Congratulations especially to Jake and Tom Clarke, our winners. Tom had a “storming” round and has had his handicap adjusted accordingly!
The next golfing events are the workshop on Wednesday, 28 August and the “Super Sixes” on Saturday, 31 August.
For the “Super Sixes” all Junior members are invited to team up with an adult family member to play a Greensomes over 6 holes.
Adults will be handicapped according to their experience!
I seem to remember that last year it was won by Sam and his Dad!
Please get your team together and let me know your availability.
And good luck to Daniel who is playing in the final Golf Tour fixture this weekend.
The results can be found on the Junior Results Page
