A pleasure to host the cream of young amateur golf talent at the Northern Boys Golf Championship on 6th July.
Some great golf on display and very positive course feedback from players and officials. Congratulations to Yorkshire who dominated the team event, whilst Jake Wallis from Garforth Golf Club, cruised to the individual title. Two rounds of two under par 69 was enough to win by two shots. Just one bogey in 36 holes on a tricky breezy day. Well done Jake!
The last top class multi round tournament staged here was the Lancashire & Cheshire PGA Championship, over 20 years ago. That event was won by Warrington pro Phil Archer, who went on to forge a very successful career on the European Tour and now, the Senior Tour.
It will be interesting to see if Jake follows in the same footsteps!
A big thank you to all our visitors, but also to our Shrigley golf members who provided enthusiastic on course support, Andy and his team in the Lodge, and Ben and our greenkeepers. It was a very early start, a long day, but a great advert for Shrigley Hall golf
