The 22nd Northern Golfer Match Play Pairs tournament is underway.
The 2023 edition of the event once again sees pairs of golfers from across the region compete in fourball betterball knock out matches throughout the season at some of the region’s best venues.
The final, at a neutral venue to be confirmed later this season, will take place in September/October with the winners receiving prize vouchers worth £600 while the runners up will receive prize vouchers worth £100.
As well as receiving their £600 prize, the winners will appear in Northern Golfer magazine and earn a place in the region’s golfing history books.

Luke, who plays off a handicap of 17 and 18-handicapper David overcame Whitley Bay-based pair David Billham and Steve Weldon in the final to add their names to the trophy.
