Traders get in the swing for Golf Day

It’s tee-time for Morpeth traders again.

Preparations are under way for the Morpeth and District Chamber of Trade’s annual Golf Day.

The event, which is one of the main fund-raisers for the group, will be held at Morpeth Golf Club on Friday, July 3.

It takes the form of a four-person amateur competition, with ladies, gents or mixed teams, and £2,000 worth of prizes up for grabs in contests such as a hole in one, nearest the pin, longest drive, putting and best dressed team.

Entry costs £245 per team, including food and drink on the course and a meal on completion.

Acting Chamber Chairman John Beynon said: “It is a great day of golf and probably one of the best competitions around.”

Entry forms are available from Geoff Proudlock on 01670 512668, or email
