Alnmouth Village

Gents Centenary Cup (sponsored by Mr & Mrs R. Willis) - Sunday’s stroke play competition was played in difficult conditions with an initial seas breeze turning into a very strong south westerly making scoring on the holes back to the clubhouse rather tough.

A couple of members managed to beat the course and the winner was declared as Darryl Taylor (84-15=69); 2nd Kevin Potts (93-23=70); 3rd Colin Reid (93-22=71); 4th John Davison (88-17=71); 5th Neil Edwards (73-2=71).

Seniors’ Roll Up - First place honours were shared between Ian Blakey and Dougie Miller who each returned scores of 17 points. Third spot, a point behind, was a tie between Tom Harris, David Gleadall and Dave Hodge.

Aln Cup 2nd Leg - The Senior team headed North on Thursday, with a 4-2 first leg lead, hoping to wrest the cup away from the grasp of Goswick. They required 2.5 points to achieve that aim but fell short by only half a point and as the two leg score was six points each Goswick retained the cup by the narrowest of margins.

Ladies’ Anniversary Trophy - 1st Linda Osgood 36 points; 2nd Bev Harris 34; 3rd Hilary Buckley 33.

This coming weekend the club hosts the NNL Open Day on Saturday, so the course is closed to members and visitors. Additionally, there is no club competition on Sunday, it being a bank holiday weekend. However, at noon on Sunday, President John Clark will do the honours and officially open the new practice putting green.
