    ***CAPTAIN'S DRIVE-IN 2017***

    Date:- Saturday 7th October 2017

    On Saturday Ponteland saw our new Captain John Lyon drive into office in traditional fashion hitting a wrapped Dunlop 65 off the first tee. It was an excellent day enjoyed by the vast numbers who attended to coctail and buffet reception before proceeding to the first tee.

    After a bit of research, John managed to outdrive immediate Past-Captain Ian Hopkinson by 1 yard! John managed to hit the wrapped ball 144 yards crushing it past Ian's 143, we're sure that won't be brought up much..!

    Ponteland would like to wish John all the best in his year as Captain and thank Ian for all the hard work he has done as he hands over the reigns!



    ***THE GOLF ROOTS JUNIOR GOLF SIXES ACADEMY***

    Date: Sunday 3rd September 2017

    In recent weeks Golf Roots introduced a new academy for young golfer in our area. The Junior Golf Sixes Academy was created to allow young golfers to compete and develop their skills in a quality manageable environment.

    Following the success of Ponteland's Junior Members Club that has been running over the last 16 weeks, Ponteland entered a squad of junior golfers to compete along side the squads of Morpeth, Bedlingtonshire and Close House.

    Each club puts forward a team of six golfers compete in a two person Texas Scramble. Each clubs in the program hosts the weekly event on six shortened holes of their course, and the juniors work together to accumulate points for their team.

    The final round was held at Close House on Sunday 3rd September, and Ponteland not only won the competition on the day, but won the overall Junior Golf Sixes Tournament.

    A huge thanks and congratulations must go out to all of our squad of players below who have represented Ponteland with their excellent golf, etiquette and attitude:

    Joe Alderson
    Will Alderson
    William Alderson
    Sophie Auld
    Daniel Clayton
    Eryn Clayton
    Liam Dalton
    Jamie Grant
    Matthew Grant
    Otis Morrison
    Lewis Scholes
    Kate Wallace

    This is an absolutely fantastic achievement from our junior golfers. The advances in their development that has taken place over just 16 weeks of the Junior Members Club is excellent to see, and they deserve to have won the title for their efforts and persistence.

    We hope that this trend continues at Ponteland. The Junior Members Club is up and running again and will continue on through through the winter months and into next year. With the great support that we have from parents, volunteers and our professionals, the future looks very bright at Ponteland Golf Club.



    ***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.
