Some of the region’s best juniors took home titles from the Northumberland County Schools Golf Championships at Ponteland Golf Club – including a hat-trick of titles for Zara Naughton.
Zara, a student at Ponteland Middle School and a member of Matfen Hall, picked up the U18 girls title, U16 girls title and girls nett crown, shooting a one-over par round.
She said: “It was great to win my first schools county championship. My playing partners were fun to play with and pushed me all the way.
“I’ve had a great start to the season in the Leverett Trophy but was disappointed my performance at the Scottish U18s so to bounce back with a win so soon is really nice. I am hoping to continue my good form this summer with a lot more events to come.”
Meanwhile, Kings Priory pupil and Tynemouth Golf Club member Freddie McKenna was crowned U16 boys champion.
