The MKM Junior Open was held on another day of perfect playing conditions.
Congratulations to all who participated, to the winners from Rothbury and Hexham and to Haydn and Daniel who recorded the best gross scores. Haydn playing in the yellow tees competition with a gross score of 42 and Daniel playing off the blue tees with a gross of 41.
Our thanks to MKM, and Derek Telfer in particular, for sponsoring the event and attending on the day to present the prizes.
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!
