Competing in their 10th consecutive Annual Golf Day, Old Average Putters finally won the prestigious George Bayley Trophy with a Texas scramble score pf 53.1. In second place was a team from Siemens and in 3rd place was the youngest team in the competition, The Oddballs.
25 teams entered this year's event which was jointly sponsored by Tier One Capital and S.O.S. Copy, Print Scan.
This year's move to Ponteland Golf Club proved popular with competitors who praised the excellent condition of the course and the friendliness and efficiency of the staff.
However, the real winners were us, Sport Newcastle, who managed to raise over £5,250 which will be used to provide grants to local amateur clubs and individuals to help them recover from the impact of the Covid pandemic.
Next year we'll be back at Ponteland on a similar date hoping to raise even more money.
