Entries open for Champions events

The Northern Golfer Champion of Champions events return this September in partnership with Brewin Dolphin and hosted by Ramside Hall

Entries are now open for this year’s Champion of Champions events and a number of players have captured their club titles in recent weeks to earn an invite to Ramside Hall.

The events – for men, ladies and juniors – will be played at Ramside Hall for a third consecutive year this September. This year’s events will be staged in partnership with Brewin Dolphin, one of the largest British investment management and financial planning firms, for the first time.

The 2019 ladies and junior events will take place on Saturday September 21 over the Cathedral Course at Ramside Hall.

The men’s event will take place on Saturday September 28 with another strong field expected to compete over the Cathedral Course.

A number of club championships have already taken place around the region with players securing invites to the champions’ events. They include Ramside’s men’s champion Nick Mansell and ladies champion Maggie Whitehead

Meanwhile, Andrew Minnikin and Tanya Stephenson have won the Alnmouth Golf Club men’s and ladies titles respectively. At Teesside, Michelle Leatherland has captured the ladies title, while Steve Anderton was victorious in Backworth Golf Club’s men’s championship. Samantha Malone booked a return to the event with her third win in Gosforth’s championship, while Jordan Bettis won the Ravensworth men’s title.

The Northern Golfer Champion of Champions events welcome an elite field of amateur golfers from across the North of England each year. The events – for men, women and juniors – are open to reigning club champions from clubs in Northumberland, Co Durham and Teesside, and selected clubs in the Borders, Cumbria and Yorkshire within Northern Golfer’s circulation area.

Invites will be emailed to clubs in the coming weeks with champions asked to register for their tee times online at www.northerngolfer.co.uk.

Thanks to the support of Brewin Dolphin and Ramside Hall, there is no charge for competitors at the events.
