Northumberland Schools Golf Series.

Do you know of any junior girls who might be interested in this event? Their school may not have told them about it. Or are you a teacher interested in getting the girls who golf in your school involved in this?

The aim of the series is to encourage inter-school golf competition throughout the school year. There will be three categories at each event - KS2 (year 5 and 6), KS3 (year 7, 8 and 9) and KS4/5 (year 10, 11,12 and 13). All players must hold an up to date CONGU handicap which must be declared and altered where necessary at each event. There will be five competitions within the series, hosted by five different golf clubs around Northumberland.

1. Tuesday 23 October 2018 Longhirst Hall Golf Club (LHGC).
2. Monday 11 February 2019 Matfen Golf Club (MHGC)
3 Friday 29 March 2019 Hexham Golf Club (HGC)
4 Thursday 25 April 2019 (TBC Incorporating Northumberland County Schools Championships) Ponteland Golf Club (PGC)
5 Tuesday 21 May 2019 Bedlingtonshire Golf Club (BGC)

The first tee time for each round is 9.30am and there will be a prize giving at the end of each event with a prize for the best nett and best gross in each category.

Golfers will receive ranking points from each event to be accumulated throughout the series, resulting, in an overall series winner for each age category. To cover costs of prizes and course fees etc. there will be a £3 playing fee for each golfer for each event they compete in, to be paid in cash on the day of each event.
