Golf round-up

Round the local golf courses.

NN Ladies

Rothbury ladies beat Dunstanburgh ladies 3 & 2 to finish with 22 points and tied with Bamburgh.

Rather than arrange a play off at a neutral course, it was decided to trial a table of match results rather like the football league.

Both teams had three home wins and one away win and Bamburgh also had a draw. Congratulations to the victorious Bamburgh team.

One match is still to play (today) Thursday, August 20 - Goswick v Seahouses.

Presentation day this year will be held at Percy Wood Golf Club on Monday, September 28.
