Ramside juniors win Durham league title

Ramside’s junior team completed a brilliant year with victory in the Durham County Golf Union Junior League playoffs.

The team, aged from nine to 20, swept to victory in the final series, which brought together the league’s three regional winners – Ramside, Darlington and Durham City.

On the final day of round-robin matches played at neutral venues, Ramside beat Durham City at Darlington to win title by a single point.

Ian Macdonald, junior liaison officer at Ramside for the past 15 years, said: “They have done amazingly well, they are a great bunch who deserve this success. The juniors are great ambassadors for the golf club and the section is going from strength to strength.”

Matthew Brady, who is also a JLO, added: “We’re also very grateful to the help and support given to us by John Adamson, owner of Ramside, and director Helen Roseberry which allows us to build this brilliant team.”

Helen added: “The junior team has done incredibly well and is a massive asset to the club. We hope this will also encourage more young people to come along and look at getting involved in golf.”
