WHITBURN SCRAMBLE

Hello Everyone, Captain Anne here.

Our golfing season has at last started and kicked off with the American Scramble which was held at Whitburn Golf Club on Monday 8thApril.

I would like to thank Whitburn Golf Club and all of their staff for accommodating us and making us very welcome.

It was a very popular event and total 42 teams took part. The winners were:

 Rosie Preston (Brancepeth Castle), Chris Pascall (Hartlepool), Carol Rae (Brancepeth Castle) and Julia Elliot (Brancepeth Castle) with a score of 64.5, narrowly beating the Consett team of Marie Spence, Annette Walton, Ann Bowen and Heather Milburn who had 65.8. Third were Julie Armitage and Alyson Chapman (Boldon)  with Alison Konfortion and  Carolyn Hibert ( Washington) scoring 66.2.  In fourth place were the all Brancepeth Castle team of Julie Rose, Ann Charlesworth, Lyn Davison and Helen Morgan who scored 66.7.  Following very closely in 5th Place, scoring 66.8 were the all Boldon team of Marion Burton, Serina Turnbull, Diane Walker and Ann McConnell.

Here are our third place winners

CAPTAIN'S MESSAGE

Captain Anne Blogging 

I hope you have all been making the most of this mild weather and have been playing lots of golf. Even though it has been a bit nippy, it’s still been quite glorious outside and in the main it’s also been quite dry.  Time to get clubs regripped, tidy out the golf bag and buy a new glove for the start of the season, maybe even have the old swing checked over by the Pro.  I’m really looking forward to the season and I hope that we can enjoy some of that lovely warm weather we had last year.
