Yorkshire girls demonstrated their strength in girls golf by collecting three of the four prizes at the North of England U14 Junior Open Championship at South Moor in Durham.

 

The three day event was hampered by torrential rain on the first day with play being abandoned and the competition reduced to 36 holes and the very wet conditions made play very challenging when golf resumed, ominously it proved for the rest of the field, on Yorkshire Day! 

 

Fulford's Alex Bonfield (4 hcap), started the final day in third spot but just one shot behind the leaders. A solid second round of 78 led the way for the white rose youngsters, finishing with a gross scores of 156 to win the Girls Gross Trophy by 4 shots and with it a guarenteed place in the North of England U16 Championships.

 

Next it was South Yorkshires on the podium. Charlotte Colley from Phoenix GC, took the Girls nett prize with an 8 under par total (138) for both rounds and the success continued in the U12 division with Lucia Maturi (Lindrick GC) finishing runner up in the U12 gross but winning the U12 Girls nett prize with a 152 score.
