Three Northern Golfer Champion of Champions events set to take place at Longhirst on Saturday October 1
The Northern Golfer Champion of Champions events are set to return to their traditional end of season date, with all three tournaments taking place at Longhirst Hall on Saturday October 1.
The events – for men, women and juniors – will take place over Longhirst’s Dawson Course and entries are now open online.
Open to club champions crowned in the 2022 calendar year, there is no charge for competitors for the 18-hole tournaments, which bring together elite fields of amateur golfers from clubs in Northumberland, Co Durham and Teesside along with selected clubs in the Borders, Cumbria and Yorkshire within Northern Golfer’s circulation area.
The region’s best amateur golfers have lifted the trophies since Northern Golfer launched the junior event in 2015, following the success of that tournament with the launch of the ladies’ event and the relaunch of the men’s Champion of Champions in 2017.
Delayed due to Covid, 2021’s events were held at the start of the 2022 season, with Alnmouth’s Joseph Henderson adding his name to the long list of men’s champions – which goes back to the 1960s – as Close House’s Maggie Whitehead produced a record-breaking performance to win the women’s title, and Kendal’s Joey Hornby won the junior title at George Washington.
