Youngsters from Houghton-le-Spring Golf Club have enjoyed another successful Easter camp. The annual jaunt has been going for four years now and this year's trip was based at the Haggerston Castle Caravan Park near Berwick with the lads taking on the courses at Goswick, Seahouses and Dunstanburgh Castle.
Previous events have taken the youngsters to Hunley Hall in North Yorkshire, Ayrshire in Scotland and Northumberland.
Daily prizes are played for and a points system determines the overall winner, who receives the Kevin Gow Trophy from the Houghton head pro, who also takes part in the three-day event.
Kevin donates the junior prizes and the actual cost of the trip is subsidised by junior section fund-raising.
Some 26 juniors took part and there was a tie between Jack Harvey and Gavin Spensley at the end of the tournament, meaning a sudden death play-off would decide things.
Everyone gathered to watch the play-off, which began on the 7th at Dunstanburgh.
Junior organiser Alan White said: "In true championship style both boys hit good drives and both hit the green with their second shots. Jack was nearest the hole and sank his putt for a birdie and the sudden death was quickly over and we all had to walk back to the clubhouse.
"This is an excellent way of starting the golf season and a good exercise for the bonding of the junior section. By using the likes of Haggerston Castle as a base, it cuts down on the running costs and there are plenty of facilities to keep everyone entertained in the evening - and we can choose from some great golf courses in the area."
