The decision to postpone Patrons Day in late July because of inclement weather was endorsed today by one of the warmest, sunniest days of the whole summer for the rearranged fixture. Eighteen pairs contested the fourball better ball Stableford event played from the white tees for men and the red tees for ladies.
The event was won by Patron Michael Carins and his partner Robson Phillipson with 43 points, followed by Bill and James Griffiths second with 41 points, pipping Patron George Coulson and partner Graham Wilson on the back nine count back.
The £500 Draw was made by Ladies Captain Rachel Batchelor who pulled new Patron David Morris from Ponteland’s number out of the hat. Lucky David!!!
