Inter County Final

The six leading pairs from the Northumberland and Durham qualifying rounds played each other in the final at Hexham Golf Club on August 20th. 

Competition was fierce on a course which proved more challenging following recent rainfall and consequent fast-growing rough. Durham were the overall winners and took first and second places. 

Three pairs tied on 71. After a count-back, Brancepeth Castle players, Marie Thompson and Kay Cleasby took the trophies and first prize. Runners-up were Jill Richardson and Suzanne Wallis of Darlington Golf Club. Rachael Michie of Bamburgh and Jude Furniss of Ponteland finished third.

After the golf, players and officials enjoyed a delicious afternoon tea, courtesy of the two Associations.

Congratulations to all participants.
