Today saw the Club Quarters and Semis Finals for the Men and the Semis and Finals for the Ladies at Parklands.
It was sunny but cool by 07.00am as the players started to assemble on the tee, ready for the first match scheduled for 07.20am. In the morning session of the Men’s Club Championship, there were wins for Chris Bowman, Mark Sewell, Warren Young and Dave Gibson. The Seniors Handicap brought wins for Steve Hutchins, Alan Wardle, Garry Blackett and Andy Bolton. The Ladies Championship Semis had wins for Candy Brown and Joanna Rumney and Ciaran Hannon and Anne Hope in the Bronze event.
The afternoon session was warm, but breezy with lots of sunshine on our lush fairways and perfect greens. The Men’s Semis were won by Chris Bowman and David Gibson thus setting up an intriguing contest for next week’s final.
Congratulations to our Ladies Club Champion, Joanna Rumney who beat last years Champion, Candy Brown.
The Bronze Championship was won by Ciaran Hannon beating Anne Hope in a closely fought match.
Congratulations to all the winners and commiserations to all the runners-up. Thanks to Brian King for organising the day, to both Captains and to all the caddies and supporters who assisted and followed the players on the course.

On the 28th April, we started our season away to Close House and we lost 7- 5.
We then had a local derby with a strong Northumberland side but on the day we were too strong for them and we won 9 – 3.
We then had a trip to Hexham who always have a good junior team and they beat us 8 – 4.
On Sunday 9th June, Morpeth were our visitors and at one stage, it looked like it was going to be 12 nil win, but eventually, it ended with Parklands winning 10 – 2, a great result.
We have 2 games left at home to Bedlington on 16th June, then the last game away to Westerhope on 30th June. We are currently sitting 2nd in the league.
So things are looking good for the team and things were looking good on Tuesday 11th June in the Men’s Summer League competition when young Ethan Searle had a hole in one on the 8th hole.
Can I just remind members that I’m having a fundraising golf day at Parklands Golf Club on Friday, July 12th (see poster published earlier on the website) and the tees are from 12noon to 3.00pm. All money raised will go to Parklands juniors. There are still tees available so come along and support our juniors

Having a random conversation with a random member of the golf club, we touched on the procedure for dropping from the wrong height. Still easily done in the heat of battle, but you must remember to correct the mistake before playing a stroke. Correct the mistake and there is no penalty, play a stroke at the ball and you incur a penalty shot for both matchplay and strokeplay, (assuming it came to rest in the appropriate relief area).
I wonder how many players are signing for the wrong scores?
Congratulation’s to Ethan Searle a junior member playing in Tuesday’s mid-week summer league competition, he achieved a feat most golfers spend their lifetime hoping for. Unfortunately, in his excitement, he forgot to sign his scorecard but it does not detract from his great shot on the 8th. Well done Ethan this may be your first hole in one and hopefully not your last. I am sure all members join your playing partners in congratulating you. Once again, well done.
management team at Parklands decided to survey its membership via a
questionnaire to establish if the company/committee needed to make any changes
to its existing structure in order to satisfy and protect its current
membership as well as providing opportunities to recruit new members.
questionnaire was sent to 467 members of which 118 replied. This response was
25% of the membership which was an excellent return rate that has provided us
with information to formulate a strategy to support the membership.
Please see the Microsoft Sway presentation of the results.
