KENILWORTH Golf Club champion Luke Northwood represented England in a four-man team under 16 international championship at Biella Golf Club in Italy last week.
Out of a field of 133 players from around Europe, the talented Northwood finished 15th overall in the individual championship and helped England to second place in the Nations Cup.
Northwood had further cause for celebration after recording his first hole-in-one at the par 3 17th in the opening round.
Superb weather and excellent course conditions were enjoyed by a full field of 136 players representing 37 clubs from nine different counties in the popular Ladies’ Autumn Open at Kenilworth Golf Club.
Fulford Heath duo Julie Ingram and Georgina Foxwell came out on top in a keenly contested event and lifted the Minns Cup after carding an impressive 40 points.
Countback was required to determine the runners-up as no fewer than four pairs finished on 39 points with Kenilworth’s Maggie Smith and Angela Bradley just edging out Pam Collins and Di Pearce (Cotswold Hills), Lynda McCarthy (Kenilworth) and Sheila Morrow (Wenvoe Castle) and Janet Fisher and Pam Compton (The Warwickshire).
The best front nine was won by Gail Neill and Anne Bourne (Scraptoft), while Liz Brown (Kenilworth) and Eileen Tatton (Moor Hall) took the best back nine prize.
Meanwhile, Johnny Carlin won the Joe Gardner Memorial Trophy by scoring 40 points at Crewe Lane on Saturday.
Steve Holt took the runners-up prize by virtue of a better back nine than Ben Hammond, John Duguid, Nick Wright, James Leggitt, Richard Lane, Ray Bevan, John Slater and Martin Bradley after they all amassed 39 points.
