Can I thank everyone who attended the England/Scotland event, and made it a very special day.

Thanks also to everyone who helped on the day.
Well done WBGC, and Scotland who were successful on this occasion.



Inter County Foursomes

This is a correction to my email of Monday 10th April.
Seton and Paul are in the Northumberland final against Ponteland (at Consett Golf Club) on Saturday 22nd April 2017 and not Sunday 23rd April as first reported.
The winning team goes on to play the Durham Winners, in the Inter County Foursomes final, which will take place in the afternoon.

Captains’ Drive In 2017

Sunday 26th March

Thanks to all who attended the Captains Drive In on 26th March 2017.

I am extremely grateful for the kind words, cards and overwhelming support from everyone.
I managed to hit a decent shot, despite the inclement weather and high winds, avoided the daffodils and we raised £292.00 for Whitley Bay Sea Cadets. All in all a very good day.

Thanks also to those who assisted on the day.
