RVI Foursomes at Alnwick Castle Today was the final of the RVI foursomes where 25 pairs competed for the magnificent Lindisfarne Cup at Alnwick Castle Golf Club. A beautiful day with a bit of breeze as you can see from the picture proudly recording our first use of the county sails. The course was looking lovely but the hot weather made the greens really tricky as was reflected in the scores. The winners with 32 points were Christine Ellison and Lynda Golightly of Slaley Hall with Lilian Allison and Vicky Corner of Parklands taking second on a count back of the back 6 from 2 others all with 31 points.

We would like to thank Secretary Daniel, Head Green-Keeper Jack and his staff and caterers Mick and Marge for giving us the course and looking after us so well today. Our thanks also to Lady Captain Chris Ancaster and the ladies section who supplied the beautiful flowers and the raffle prizes. £100 was raised from the raffle and that along with the monies raised through the qualifier rounds at all the clubs will mean about £400 will be sent to the Cancer Ward at the RVI. A fantastic sum, thank you all who took part.
