NORTH OF ENGLAND OPEN AMATEUR CHAMPIONSHIP
27TH – 29TH SEPTEMBER 2016
Northern Counties Produce Record Field for the Open Amateur Championship at Alwoodley
Almost 160 players submitted entries for the “Open Amateur Championship” organised by the Northern Counties Union. Just 117 will take their places following a ballot held at scratch 0.0 level and almost half the field have a 2-handicap or better!
Twenty-Eight Counties from England, plus those from Wales, Scotland and Ireland who will have top players in view and will sure to be captivated by the renowned Alwoodley course. Indeed, there are 20 of the top 30 players registered in their order held by England Golf.
The famous “County Plate” is one of the highlights which are played for by twenty-two UK Counties – all producing two or more players competing in this subsidiary tournament.
The reigning Champion is Adam Chapman from Carus Green G C in Cumbria. He has won the trophy for the last two years at Pannal and will be keen to keep his title at the new venue of Alwoodley.
Yorkshire’s Dan Brown is the English Amateur Champion and will certainly be one to watch while young Charlie Thornton, from Fulford, is the current leader of the England Golf Boy’s Order of merit.
Josh Hilleard of Barrington Park (Somerset), is third in the England Men’s Order of Merit and has produced some sensational golf this season.
All in all, this should be a stunning championship and regular on-line scores will be available from the Northern Counties Golf Union’s Web-site.
This Web Site has been produced to benefit the Counties of the Northern Group and provide latest news and information on all the Championships run by the Northern Counties Golf Union.
