Middlesbrough/Cleveland Report and Results - 20th-21st June 2019
After a rather damp start to the summer, a more settled spell of dry weather greeted our group of 41 members in North Yorkshire, much to the relief of everyone who took part.
The June meeting was played on two attractive but very different courses, firstly at the tree-lined parkland of Middlesbrough GC and then on the second day over the rugged links of Yorkshires oldest course, Cleveland GC. It was 10 years since the previous visit to Middlesbrough but this was the first time that the society had played at Cleveland, Yorkshire’s only true links course and I’m sure it won’t be the last. Both venues were in great condition with excellent greens to test the skills of all that took part.
At Dinner, we were joined by the Middlesbrough club captain Mr Jim Taylor and his wife Hilary. Mr Taylor gratefully accepted the Society donation of £500 to further junior golf at his club from GSGB Chairman Giles Hinchcliffe.
The Founders Trophy for men was won by Paul Collier from Astbury with 69 points over the two days, narrowly defeating Ian Chamberlain on countback. The ladies Founders Trophy was won by Linda Cusack from Camberley Heath who scored 66 points, including an excellent score of 39 points on day 2. Kathy Ogden from Bath was the aggregate runner-up with 64 points.
