Park survives rain to host open day

Kaims Country Park North Northumberland League Open Day

Burgham Park survived the weather woes of the previous few days to host Saturday’s league open day.

Inevitably, it was a non-counting day as far as scoring was concerned with preferred lies through the greens. This apart, the course was in superb condition and a tribute to the greens staff.

Not unexpectedly, it was a successful day for the host club with Brian Horrill heading both individual gross and nett sections and spearheading a Burgham Park double in the team event.

Leading returns: Individual gross (Stableford): 34pts B Horrill (Burgham Park); 31 (on countback) R Nelson (Seahouses); 31 A McGrady (Dunstanburgh); 31 M Cowie (Seahouses); 31 G Waterston (Burgham Park); 30 J Trewick (Burgham Park). Nett: 40 B Horrill; 39 M Cowie; 37 G Waterston; 36 R Nelson; 36 T Hodge (Alnwick); 36 J Trewick.
