A message from the President

Danny Finlay

Danny Finlay - NUGC President - 2017

It is a great honour and privilege to have been selected to represent the County as President of the Northumberland Union of Golf Clubs.

I look forward to the support from my colleagues and past Presidents on the executive, and the county squad

I shall be visiting many of our golf clubs during the year and trust that you will assist me by supporting the clubs hosting our County Competitions, both as players and supporters.

We have now enabled an "on line" entry and payment facility for our competitions via the NUGC website.

With the NUGC and NJGA amalgamating this year, and the mentoring scheme set up by our County Captain, we shall be seeing the benefits feeding through into our County Squad in future years.

We shall continue the USGA rating programme with 10 clubs selected for re-rating this year. With 18 clubs completed in the past two years, 28 of our 42 clubs will have been re-rated by 2017 year end. The remainder will be completed in 2018/19, in time for the move to the World Wide Handicapping Scheme in 2020, which will use the "Slope System.

Wishing everyone an enjoyable and successful golfing year in 2017
