Northumberland Union of Golf Clubs
The NUGC, as the men’s amateur golf governing body in Northumberland, focuses on administering county championships, team competitions, and coaching programs. Affiliated with England Golf, the NUGC manages course measurements and slope ratings for its member clubs and serves as the local authority on the R&A Rules of Golf and Handicapping.
Today, we held two WHS Seminars at Morpeth Golf Club, where we had 74 attendees spread evenly between the two sessions.
A big thanks to Danny Finlay, our Regional Handicap adviser, for organising and taking the lead, he was supported by our County Handicap adviser Michael Arkle.
Representing the Northumberland Ladies Golf Association, we had Secretary Bernie Legg and County Handicap adviser Gemma Duxfield.
We also Neil Burke and Nikki Richardson, from England Golf, to lend their support.
There was representation from over 30 of our Clubs, which is very encouraging, we will be looking to host a ‘mop up’ session for those who were unable to attend.
The feedback and interaction from the attendees was very encouraging, with lots of queries and questions being cleared up on the day.
The 2023 season got off to its traditional start with the Inter County Foursomes, which were held at Magdalene Fields and Alnmouth Village Golf Clubs on the 1st and 2nd of April.
32 Teams started out on Saturday morning, on a cool and damp day at Magdalene Fields- despite the tough conditions there was some good golf played, with some games needing extra holes to bring them to a conclusion.
