Following the success of Thirsk & Northallerton Golf Club’s junior team in the HDUGC Junior Inter-Club League the club was invited to enter the team into the Junior Team Golf, Home Nations Championships 2017. On 24th September they played in a regional final at Pontefract and, as best runner up, they progressed to the North East semi-finals at Hallamshire on 8th October which they won.
The team went to the final on 22nd October at Clitheroe where they played alongside teams from the Midlands, North West, South East and South West. In spite of appalling weather conditions with driving rain, swirling wind and a very, very wet course, the juniors playing in the final did a sterling job and came 3rd with only 1 shot separating them from the runners up.
Players, from left to right Julia Czechowska, Connor Stout, Harry Collinson, Joe Hay, Richard Fawcett and Ben Collinson were true ambassadors for TNGC and members are very proud of their achievements.
