A golf-trip-of-a-lifetime to the Bahamas awaits amateur Mike North and his Ingleby Barwick PGA professional Tim Jenkins if they can come through the regional final of Europe’s biggest pro-am competition, the Virgin Atlantic PGA National Pro-Am Championship supported by SkyCaddie.

North, a 20-handicaper from Stockton, took his first big step towards a luxury six-day all inclusive trip to the island of Grand Exuma between November 23-28, when he won his club qualifying competition with a score of 38 points.

He and Jenkins now advance to Fulford Golf Club, one of 16 regional finals, where they will play one round of better-ball medal play. The winning professional in the regional final receives £500, and there are valuable prizes for the top amateurs.

The winners at each regional final throughout Great Britain and Ireland will secure their place on board a Virgin Atlantic jet for the exotic trip and the chance to compete in the Grand Final held on the Greg Norman-designed course at Emerald Reef Golf Club, part of the Sandals Emerald Bay Resort, which boasts the only “all butler” service in the Bahamas.
