North Northumberland League Open Day
Local knowledge was the key as home players featured among the leading scorers in Saturday’s Open Day Stableford over the demanding Burgham Park course.
The host club’s Ron Dixon led the individual gross section with 34 points and was runner-up to Berwick’s Mark Jones in the nett.
Teamwise, Burgham topped both the gross and nett sections. The condition of the course drew favourable comments from competitors, while remaining a very good test of golf.
