    ***Captain's Day & Captain's Dinner***

    Date: Saturday 12th August 2017

    Last Saturday saw our 2017 Captain, Ian Hopkinson, host his own day at Ponteland Golf Club.

    Despite the weather being quite unpleasant for many hours of the day, this did not deter the vast number of members that played and showed their support to Ian for his great year in charge.

    The course was fantastic and held the rain well and when it eventually stopped, the greens rolled as true as ever.

    Ian, and his wife Jan, spent their entire day at the half way house serving hot dogs and nibbles to many wet and desperate competitors. It is a complimentary service that does not go overlooked and all members appreciate the chance to see Ian and wish him well on his day.

    Once everyone had dried off, the evening dinner was as good as ever, with many delicious a la carte options to choose from.

    At the conclusion of the day, it was determined that there had been a tie for the main prize, between Joe McStravick and Max Bromley. Both had fantastic matching gross scores of 71, both playing off 3 for nett 68s. But it was Joe who won the overall prize thanks to his stunning back 9 which included 5 birdies on the last 6 holes!

    Ian has been a great support towards the juniors in his years at office and was proud to see both Joe and Max fighting it out to win the main prize on his day.

    Ian concluded the day by thanking everyone who had supported him over the past two years, both staff and members alike, and his vice captain John who have formed a very close friendship in their duties, and who will take over his role in the coming months. But his main thanks went to his wife Jan who had been with him every step of his captaincy and supported him closely on all his duties.

    Thank you very much for your service to Ponteland Golf Club Ian, we wish you a very happy finish to your captaincy and your future at the club!



    ***Lady's Club Championship and Lady President's Day***

    Date: Sunday 30th July & Friday 4th August

    A shared post for two of the main events for the ladies section at Ponteland Golf Club. On Sunday 30th July, four ladies consisting of Linda Hoyle vs Lesley Marsh and Alexandra Robson-Crosby vs Val Crute contested to reach the final to win the 2017 Club Championship

    After the morning matches, the final was to be settled between Linda and Alexandra. After a very close contest it was Alexandra who won this year's Championship winning the final 1 up. A fantastic way to finish off her year as the Lady Captain!

    The following Friday was the Lady Presidents Day which was hosted by this year's president, Hazel Furniss. Hazel hosted a lovely buffet lunch with many members attending to wish her well, whilst the ladies competed for the main prize.

    The conditions were very testing with strong winds and fast greens, but congratulations must go to the overall winner of the 2017 Lady Presidents Day, Leslie Marsh.

    A dinner was held in the evening with many in attendance enjoying the great food. What was fantastic to see what so many new lady members who have joined the club in the past couple years and participated in the taster get into golf sessions.

    Thanks to a lot of work and support from members, helpers and professionals, we hope that the ladies section continues to prosper in the years to come!



    ***JUNIOR MEMBERS CLUB***

    Ponteland are now entering the sixteenth and final week of the Summer Junior Members Club program. For those who have followed the progress so far, the juniors have competed in a number of different skills competitions and have received tuition to help them develop and have more success in these activities.

    During the final weeks, everyone who has attended has gone onto the golf course and used the skills that they have learnt throughout the program. It has been amazing to see the progress made from all the juniors and how they are coping with the challenge on a full size course.

    For many of the juniors this their first interaction in the sport, but after seven weeks the improvements and developments of their skills is astonishing. The Junior Members Club provides an excellent learning environment for juniors, matching tuition with fun skills tests accommodating to all ages and friendship groups.

    Boosting the interest and enjoyment of golf for younger people is as important as ever in 2017 and Ponteland Golf Club have taken the initiative by launching our own Junior Member's Club.

    The special membership for all juniors who sign up, allows them to receive free coaching from our PGA Professionals and participate in a number of fun activities arranged on our facilities.
