Exciting times ahead at Luffenham

Have your say

Exciting times lie ahead for North Luffenham Golf Club this year.

Membership increased by almost 20 percent last year and golf professional Mark Jackson, after many years at Toft, is now working out of the Luffenham club.

However there was a low turnout for the club’s recent Sunday medal played in bitterly cold weather.

All players returned net scores above 70 in division one except Dom Freckingham, who carded a magnificent net 66 off 17. Runner-up was Tom Little, with net 71 (off 11).

In division B, Chris Durrant was the eventual winner with a net 76 (off 20) closely followed by Dave Crooks with a net 78 (off 19).

In the latest round of knock-out ties, Keith Bellamy (off 18) beat Gordon Knox (off 11) by one hole, in the Gents Knock-out final.

Bob Dixon awaits either Tom Little or Gordon Knox in the final of the seniors’ knock-out contest. Bob (off 13) beat Malcolm Hird (off 16) by one hole in the semi, having been 4 down after 8 holes.
