The 2017 season is underway for the Parklands Inter and Rabbits teams, and both teams have some work to do to climb up the league tables so that they qualify for the NERGA finals day at Woodham in September.
The Rabbits started the season at Roseberry Grange with a relatively inexperienced team, top scorer for Parklands was Kev Mcgorie (33 points) and the team finished in 7th position. The second event was at Seaham and young Peter Nelson was Parklands top scorer with 34, a number of other players put in an improved performance which meant that the team finished 5th. Next event is at Boldon on 4th June where Captain Tommy Watson is confident that his players will put in another good performance and climb up the league.
The Inter have played in 3 events, at Wearside, Ravensworth and Darlington. It’s been a mix of some players playing Ok, while others have struggled with the different courses. This has seen Parklands finish 6th, 7th and 4th at the events played to date, but with the next match being our home event, on 2/7/17, an improvement in result and league position should be possible.
Any player who wants to be considered for either team, playing competitive golf for your club, at different courses in the NE should contact either the Rabbits Captain (Handicap 16+) Tommy Watson, or Iwan Owen the Inter (Handicap 8 -15) Captain.
Full results from each event are included on the Rabbits section of the website.
