A message from the President
The delayed final of the Amateur Championship, hosted by Sand Moor GC brought an end to the 2019 Summer golfing season. Congratulations to the winner, Tom Broxup, and commiserations to Steve Cain a worthy runner-up in a well contested match. All the Union competitions were concluded without incident and my congratulations to all this year’s prize winners. The Union scratch team was somewhat unfortunate in losing the first two matches of the season before winning the next four reasonably comfortably to finish 3 points behind the winners Halifax/ Huddersfield Union. The junior team had a somewhat up and down season, partly because of availability issues, but it is good to know that most of them will be around in 2020.
I guess some will be putting their clubs away now that we have come to the end of a somewhat damp Summer. The more hardy of us will enjoy our winter golf and the Union Executive will be hoping for a good turnout in each of the winter alliances. I myself expect to get back to golf soon having missing much of the summer with a back problem. Let us hope for a drier winter while we think ahead to next Spring.
