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
Nearest the pin, which was a real challenge was won by Margaret Nisbet with a measurement of 22 feet 2 inches!!Well done to everyone.
PS: I’d like to remind all of our SILVER PLAYERS to get their names down for the Silver Spring Meeting & Championship to be held at Blackwell Grange starting 6thMay.
