Lindrick Golf Club’s Daniel Wasteney will aim to defend his North of England Open Amateur Golf Championship later this year.
The youngster will be in action at Pannal Golf Club, Harrogate between 30th September and 2nd October as a field of 117 competitors battle for the stroke play title.
Launched last year by the Northern Counties Golf Union, this major end of season championship attracted a full field of high quality golfers from around the country.
England A team player Wasteney became the proud inaugural winner, as heavy rain suddenly decided to sweep over Pannal Golf Club course on days two and three, forcing the organisers to reduce the championship to 18 holes.
Prospects for this year’s event are very bright however, with many of last year’s competitors having already shown their support for the championship.
This is a 72 holes event and entry is limited to a total field of 117 competitors.
They will play 18 holes on each of the first two days and those with the 32 lowest scores and ties will then play a further 36 holes on the last day.
There is handicap limit of 1.4 and the entry fee for the event is £55.
The North of England Open Amateur Stroke Play Championship has the backing of England Golf, will be eligible for World Amateur Golf Ranking Points and is the last counting event of the season towards the Titleist Footjoy Order of Merit.
Entry forms may be obtained from the NCGU website at www.ncgu.co.uk/n-of-e-amateur-championship/entry-form.html
Enquiries should be made to championship chairman Dennis Trickett.
