Allendale once again entered a junior team in the Texas Scramble at Matfen, a series of 4 separate encounters, held during the winter months. Jake Reed, Carl Baxter, Daniel Twizell, Alfie Mason and Jack Campbell have all played their part.
Last Sunday was the final match and the team, comprising Jake Reed, Daniel Twizell and Alfie Mason, playing against strong opposition, finished equal second with Ravensworth, completing their 9 hole round on par. Even better they won the “nearest to the pin” on the final hole.
Congratulations to Sunday’s team and to all five Juniors for their contribution to the series.

Congratulations to this year’s Champions – Haydn Rutherford by one shot from Jake Reed, and Daniel Twizell off the blue tees. It was also very pleasing to see the full turnout in each competition.
The Championships mark the end of this season’s junior golf but remember, as ever there is a Club Presentation Night to come, and I will keep you informed when the date for Presentation Night is fixed.
The August Newsletter is also on the website under the Junior section
