Joe Huntley, Junior Captain for 2020/2021
My name is Joe Huntley, I am 16 years old and a member of Bishop Auckland Golf Club and Crook Golf Club; a student at Whitworth Academy and now Club Junior Captain!
I got into golf at a young age, when for my birthday I got a set of golf clubs from my grandad and nana (Leo & Irene Noble), from there I went to the driving range and fell in love with the sport. Shortly after I joined Bishop Auckland where I met Ben Mawson and Cameron Hamilton and every Sunday we would play 9 holes and became good friends. Since then, thanks to Steve Goodwin, Sue Wright and Mike Pilgrim the junior section has grown phenomenally. Where there had only really been me, Ben and Cameron, suddenly there are 20+ amazing people which I think has developed to more than a junior section, it's a great community and group of friends having fun and playing amazing competitions on a regular basis.
All I can do now is hope that the juniors will excel and succeed in the 2021 season which I'm sure they will, whether that's through the Junior League or just their handicap goals.
Junior Presentation Evening
Juniors at Bishop Auckland Golf Club's Presentation Evening celebrated an extremely successful 2019 season in various categories playing at home and away. The junior section is growing, thanks to coaching sessions and on-course activities for all ages and abilities. Club juniors of all ages competed in County and individual events with great success gaining strength and depth for the future.
2019 Junior Captain, Cameron Hamilton, won the Junior Championship and Ben Mawson aged 11 won the Nett Club Championship. Cassidy Hamilton topped a great season being acknowledge as Most Improved Player.
