Players from across the region have earned their place in the three Northern Golfer Champion of Champions events, which take place at Longhirst Hall on Saturday October 1

Club golfers from across Northumberland, Co Durham, Teesside, the Borders, Cumbria and Yorkshire within Northern Golfer’s circulation area have earned invitations to the Champion of Champions events at Longhirst Hall Golf Club on Saturday October 1.

The events – for men, women and juniors – will take place over Longhirst’s Dawson Course and players are invited to submit their entries online now.

Open to club champions crowned in the 2022 calendar year, there is no charge for competitors for the 18-hole tournaments, which have been won by some of the region’s best amateur golfers 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.

Players who have earned invitations so far include Joseph Henderson, who retained the men’s title at Alnmouth and will defend the Champion of Champions crown he won earlier this season at Longhirst. Meanwhile, Craig Penny lifted the Newbiggin men’s trophy for an 11th time, and John Howarth won his 10th men’s club championship (and eighth in a row) at Crook. Claire Brown won Close House’s women’s title for a sixth time, and Gary Donnison and John Kirkpatrick both won the men’s titles for a fourth time at Gosforth and Ramside respectively.
