The Joseph Miller Cup
On Friday the 4th September in the lovely setting of Burgham Park Golf Club, the Province of Northumberland hosted the Joseph Miller Cup against the Province of Durham, last year’s winners. Durham Captain Martin Rankin urged his team on to be competitive but more importantly to enjoy the day.
A total of 14 players per Province proceeded to tee off from midday in blustery but bright conditions and apart from a heavy shower of rain in the middle of the round the weather remained kind.
Back at the clubhouse the points were totalled up as the golfers completed their rounds using the Stableford points system and all scores added together for each Province. A splendid 2 course meal was enjoyed before the results were announced, with Durham retaining the trophy by a 380 to 344 margin. A delighted Martin was presented with the trophy by stand in Northumberland Captain Eric Longstaff. A special mention of David Hanson who came in with the best individual score of 35 points.
A raffle concluded the day with all prizes having been donated by the players and the proceeds will go towards the Masonic Covid 19 appeal.
Well done Durham.
