Firstly this week an apology, an incorrect result was shown in last week’s report, the actual winner of the Dobson 20’s trophy was none other than club vice-captain Billy Brown, my apologies to both him and Carl Green who was in fact one shot behind Billy as it was in fact a gross scoring competition.

The entry was reduced due to the annual club trip last weekend but the standard in the Thermofuels Trophy certainly wasn’t.

Lee Hope saw his handicap pulled a further two shots as he posted his second victory of the season in fine style, his score of 41 points was two ahead of the field of 38 players and now means he has two trophies to pick up on presentation night.

In second place was Andrew Dodd who was in turn two ahead of Peter Lewis, Eddy Jury finished a fabulous fourth which was by far his best finish of the current season he was also in the two’s club and was joined by Alistair Smith and Andrew Dodd.

Thermofuels Trophy: 1 L J Hope 41pts; 2 A Dodd 39; 3 PJD Lewis 37.


Bamburgh’s hopes of finishing the season with a trophy treble ended when they lost 3-2 to Alnmouth (Foxton) in the final of the Glendale Cup over the Alnwick course on Sunday.

They had earlier clinched the North Northumberland League Division One Championship - Foxton finishing runnners-up after a close season-long contest between the two - and beat Hadrian League champions Newbiggin 3-1 with one game halved in the Davison Cup Final.

Deuchar Cup: Garry Henderson, who has recently rejoined the Club, proved that his time away has not dimmed his golfing prowess. His gross 67, three under par, which included a hole in one at the 210yard 10th, left the field staggering in his wake.

Garry Henderson 67-5=62, Jim Allison 77-10=67, Stephen Glass 74-6=68 (back nine).

Needless to say the hole in one scooped the 2s club. Immediate past-captain Jock Simpson took the Captain’s charity nearest the pin on the sixth.
