Bronze Team  


Match v Durham at Blackwell Grange - 6th July 2018 

Northumberland 3 1/2 - Durham 2 1/2

On Friday 6th July, 12 bronze players travelled to Blackwell Grange Golf Club to play the annual match against Durham. Format for the day is 4 Ball Better Ball match play with no shots given or received. 6 matches set out.

Ladies qualified for the team from our Bronze championship in May with the best gross scoring players for the team
on the day.

The match was very exciting - great to watch with some super golf being played.

We won the 1st 2nd and 3rd matches with the 4th match going to Durham.

We only needed a half match from the last two to win the trophy and bring it back to Northumberland.

The final group unfortunately lost their match on the 17th so only one match on the course. Our ladies headed up the last 1 down with it looking like 3 matches to Northumberland and 3 matches to Durham - meaning Durham would retain the trophy.

Our pairing of Anne Heatley(Parklands) and Jean Sayers (Gosforth) played the hole perfectly whilst their opposition both put their balls in the fairway bunker. Both Jean and Anne were on to the edge of the green for 3 whilst one Durham lady was out of the hole and the other on the green for 4.

Jean did a great putt across the green to about 4ft - now 4 shots. The Durham lady putted from 15ft and just missed leaving a 5 footer to finish with a 6 and make Jean hole out for her 5.

Both Players managed to hole their putts - Durham finishing with a 6 and us with a 5 - a halved match and a win for Northumberland!!

Well done to all the team!! A fantastic result!
