  • Ladies Past Captains Day

    Ladies Past Captains Cup
    Ladies Past Captains Day Winner - 2017
    On Thursday 24th August 2017, the annual competition for the Ladies Past Captain's Cup was held.

    It was a dry, sunny day which was perfect golfing weather for the 11 Past Captains who were available to play on the day, along with this year's Lady Captain, Lyn Davison, who is invited to play (but cannot win!). This was in sharp contrast to last year's weather, when due to very wet conditions, the stableford competition had to be played over just 9 holes.

    Congratulations to Linda Larnach who was this year's winner.

    Afterwards, those who had played were joined by five more Past Captains for a meal in the dining room.

    On the 18th August, Brancepeth Ladies went to Ponteland for an Away Day organised by the Past Captain.

    It was a bright but breezy day with only one heavy downpour, which some lucky ladies managed to avoid. Everyone enjoyed the course very much and found it a much easier walk than Brancepeth.

    Our Lady Captain, Lyn Davison was the winner of the Quaich Cup this year, Ann Charlesworth came 2nd and Jill Dickinson was 3rd.

    "It gives me great pleasure to announce the results from the 36 hole club championship held on Sunday 6th August 2017. Congratulations to all who took place on this special date in our fixtures, it is in an achievement to play 36 holes but, I feel, very worthwhile.

    Over the long course the Anson Gibson Trophy 36 hole nett championship was won by Deborah Simpson, well done.

    And our Club Champion for 2017 is Marianne Moore, with rounds of 76 and 83. Absolutely fantastic 1st round, with birdies on 8, 9, 10 & 11. Superb golf, congratulations Marianne."

    Captain's Newsletter - July 2017

    The month got off to a flying start with the 3 man team qualifier at Brancepeth. Our team of Richie Aisbitt, James Glenn & Dan Fox scored 67, 67 & 70 respectively. The 6 under par total destroyed the field securing a place in the County 36 hole Championship at the Ramside on Saturday 5th August - looking forward to it.

    My Captain's day was a one to for me to remember. Although the weather was a little gloomy to start it didn't dampen the spirits and I hope everyone enjoyed the day as much as Audra & I did.

    Thank you to all who donated prizes, helped with selling tickets, bought tickets and had a go at my 'hit the green' competition at the 10th. Special thanks to Dave Tweddle for his tremendous support throughout the day. Well done to all the winners both on and off the course.

    My chosen charity, Prostate Cancer, was a great winner on the day as we raised £1,000. Brilliant.

    Lady Captain Lyn had a great Captain's day. The weather was great, the golf good and the hospitality even better. Well done Lyn and all your family & helpers.

    The Men's Team have been tremendous all season with wins of 10-4 against Crook, 12-2 away at Consett, 13-1 against Southmoor, a 8-6 defeat away to Whickham and the final game 10-4 win at home to Houghton not only secured promotion but also guaranteed our place as Division 2 Champions.

    What a season - I can't thank all the players, caddies & supporters enough.

    The BIG MATCH was played away to Seaton Carew on the 22nd where we trailed a very respectable 37-27. To say we made amends the next week is an understatement, winning 63-12. 90-49 overall. Well done to all who played and it was great to see the clubhouse buzzing all day. The BIG MATCH trophy is also back at the club - brilliant!

    Well, what a month that was. Great golf, great games home and away and best of all a great atmosphere in the clubhouse enjoyed by members and visitors alike.

    Marianne Moore won the best gross prize with a superb score of 84 in difficult conditions. Unfortunately, having won the qualifying completion, she was unable to play in the subsequent matchplay competition due work commitments.

    The following Brancepeth Castle GC Ladies qualified for the matchplay last 16 on Wednesday 10th May: Barbara Cheetham, Lyn Davison, Jennifer Dixon, Julia Doughty and Rosie Preston.

    The Championship culminated in the matchplay Semis and Final on Thursday 11th May.

  • Captains' Drive-In 2017

    Captains Drive-In

    Saturday 1st April at 12 noon saw the official start to the golfing season at Brancepeth with the Captain’s and Lady Captain’s Drive-In, where a large group of members, family and friends turned out to support Mal and Lyn.

    Mal, in Lyn's words, smoked it 245 yards down the righthand side while Lyn, "with arms like jelly", hit it 212 yards straight down the middle.

    The “Guess the Yardage Competition” raised £230 for Mal's Charity, Prostate Cancer and £80 for Lyn's Charity, Butterwick Childrens Hospice.

    Keith Cresswell and Geoff Raw both guessed within a yard of Mal's drive while Ann Charlesworth correctly guessed the exact distance of Lyn’s drive. All three winners very generously donated their winnings to the Charity.

    In addition to giving a special vote of thanks to their respective Vice-Captains, David Tweddle and Marianne Moore, both Captains would also like to thank everyone who supported the day and the meal in the evening and wish all members a fantastic 2017.

    In the Men's Team Stableford the results were as follows:

    1st D Gray, K Patterson, K Williams and J Murray 82 (bb9))
    2nd A Soppitt, S Whitaker & W Melles 82
    3rd J Luke, G Lowes, I Oates & V Qehaja 81

    The Lady Captain, Lyn, would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who helped out at the Ladies Coffee Morning on Friday 17th March, to all who donated, baked or simply spent money and also to Sheila for the daffodils on the tables.

    It was a lot of work but was a huge success and we have raised £841.


    Click here to view a copy of the latest Agronomist's Report.

    The Agronomist made the following comment in his previous Report:

    "Golfers who wheel their trolleys along the narrow route between bunker and green are causing a lot of unnecessary damage and wear. In the best interests of course presentation and maintenance costs, golfers should not take trolleys along such narrow routes when there is ample space to walk and spread the wear outside the bunkers."

    It is very apparent that many Members still totally ignore this advice. If you want to play your course in the best possible condition, please be careful when using trolleys and buggies.

  • Captains Handover Dinner - 2017

    Captain's Handover Dinner 2017

    Our Captains, past, present and future, would like to thank the 58 members and guests who attended the Captain's Handover Dinner on Saturday 25th February and made it such a special night.

    Peter Schofield presented our new Captain, Mal Fawcett, and Vice-Captain, David Tweddle, with golf caps for the occassion and also presented Mal with a Captain's bell for gaining attention. The bell, however, may not be seen much at the Club as Audra, Mal's wife, intends taking it home for her own use!

    During the speeches, those attending the dinner were made very aware of the danger in confiding anything private to our new Captain. The story of Peter visiting the catering cabin behind the tenth tee and his encounter with a member dog-walking will, however, not be further described here!

    The Durham University 1st Team, who play their home games at Brancepeth Castle, were crowned BUCS Premier North Champions after beating the University of Central Lancashire team by 4.5 points to 1.5 points at home on 8th February 2017. In a strongly contested league of six teams, playing home and away, they won the league by one point from Birmingham University.

    Albert Potts, who organises the team and their matches, wrote the following to the Club:

    "Could you please pass on our sincere gratitude to your Committee and members for the support and encouragement they have shown the university players in recent years. We would not be where we are today without that support.

    Next we are looking forward to becoming National Champions .... watch this space!”

    We wish them the best of luck in their forthcoming matches.

As Directors and Members of Brancepeth Castle Golf Club, I would like to thank you for your tremendous support in achieving this incredible amount.

    These photos, shown below, will be distributed throughout the Bank's PR machine and hopefully appear in various magazines produced by Barclays.

    I also visited Butterwick House at North Tees Hospital last week, again photos were taken for their in-house publication. Hopefully this will give the Golf Club good exposure.

    Thanks again for your tremendous support.
