Champions events to return in 2022

The Northern Golfer Champion of Champions events, presented in partnership with Brewin Dolphin, will return to open the region’s golfing calendar in 2022.

The Ladies and Junior events will take place at George Washington (pictured right) on Monday May 2, 2022 with the Men’s event currently scheduled for late-April 2022. A further announcement on the venue for the Men’s event will be published in our next edition.

Open to club champions crowned in the 2021 calendar year, entries for the event will open later this season. Thanks to the support of Brewin Dolphin, one of the largest British investment management and financial planning firms, there is no charge for competitors for these 18-hole tournaments.

The Northern Golfer Champion of Champions events welcome an elite field of amateur golfers from across the North of England. The events – for men, women and juniors – will be open to club champions crowned in 2021 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.

In 2019, Whickham’s Faye Wheatley won the ladies title as Tyneside’s James Wilson won his second Junior Champion of Champions crown, and Garforth’s Josh Bassitt won the men’s title.

Invites will be emailed to clubs later this season, when champions will be asked to register for their tee times online. For more information on Northern Golfer events, contact Dean Bailey,
