Playing under our newly re-branded name of High Gosforth Park Golf Club we now have our first County competition wins and trophies, hopefully the first of many.
Playing in the Silver Championships of the Northumberland County Veterans Ladies Golf Association competition at Tynemouth GC on Wednesday 5th May 2021, Candy Brown shot an excellent gross 81 to win the Lou Stewart Salver for the lowest gross. In addition, High Gosforth Park GC won the Nett Team Shield with a scores from Candy, Anne Heatley and Lilian Allison. Well done to you all.
Just a reminder — As of the 1st of May 2021, preferred lies on closely mown areas (fairways and green fringes only) are not permissible until the 1st October 2021.
The Rules for the Men’s Knockout Competitions are now shown in the Men’s Section – Knockout Competitions tab
It was a great start to the season for Ken Wilkinson who had the perfect way to shake off the pandemic blues with a Hole in One.
Ken was playing in the Seniors Competition on Monday morning and played his ace on the 12th hole. Congratulations Ken on joining an exclusive club with a Hole in One in competition play.
The exceptional dry April weather has delayed the recent drainage works from knitting back into the course.
Therefore, with immediate effect and until further notice, all recent drainage works are to be treated as Ground Under Repair (GUR) Rule16 applies.
In addition, the area of soft mounding between the area of the 13th and 17th greens is also GUR until further notice.
Don’t forget when you are playing from a bunker that the local rule on Covid19 still applies until further notice.
It’s official … its the start of the season and following in the traditional manner, today was the Captain’s Drive-In. This was a drive-in with a difference as current restrictions curtailed any social activity associated with the event. Both Graham Brown and Lilian Allison struck superb shots down the fairway and in so doing, became the first Captains of High Gosforth Park Golf Club, our newly renamed club. Well done to you both and best wishes for a successful year in your roles.
