HCU Annual Golf Match

College alumnae took on Old Ethelburgians in their annual golf match on 27th September 2019. Fiona Wood (1978-84) tells us about it:

“I have to say, I was a little concerned in the week running up to the competition as the weather forecast looked dreadful. However on Friday morning, led off by Sue Wood (1952-60), the sun shone and views of Bamburgh Castle and Holy Island bathed in sunshine were stunning. The scene was set for what is always a close encounter.

At the half way point, we were met on the course by Ann Herbert (QE), with an array of chocolate biscuits and news that the first match was going well, our match was all square and the following match was also up by 2. Unfortunately a tough start on the back nine proved too challenging for the Harrogate team and as a result of some strong competition this year, Old Ethelburgians came out on top winning the match 2-1.”

This annual competition is also a social event – the team met at the Mizen Restaurant in Bamburgh beforehand.

Next year’s match is back in Yorkshire at Ilkley Golf Club, on Thursday 24th September – alumnae can get in touch on to join in with this social and fun golf competition!
