This will be my last Blog for a little while, as I am in hospital shortly for an operation. There will be an update as soon as I am able.
I only have 2 or 3 results from Opens for Billingham members. Myself, Dave McNeill, Dennis Wright and Jimmy Dilworth won the Durham City Seniors Texas Scramble. Dennis Wright won the Durham County Members Autumn Salver with 45 points. This was played at Billingham. Gary Parker and Neil Hartley came 2nd at Whickham in a 4BBB Open with 46 points. Gary Parker won a Seniors Open at Linden Hall with 39 points. The Seniors Team finally ended in 3rd position in the 1st Division which was won by Eaglescliffe. The Inters won at Bedale in their latest match beating the 7 others in their league. There is one match to play at Oakleaf where they need to beat Roseberry Grange by more than 3 points to secure overall 2nd place which will take them to the finals at Ramside. The Rabbits were 2nd in their latest match at Parklands taking them into 3rd place in their league. A very good performance in their last match at Stocksfield may see them also at Ramside on finals day. The Golfer of the Year Competition is ‘hotting up’ in the Mens Section with 3 players within 4 points of the leading position and others very close. It will all come down to the Knockouts and 3 Final results, i.e. Stableford, Medal and Rosebowl. Good Luck to all.
