Goswick to stage Open qualifying
Regional Qualifying for the 147th Open Championship to be held at Carnoustie during 15-22 July 2018, will take place at Goswick Golf Club, Berwick-Upon -Tweed on Monday 25th June.
This is a great opportunity to see Professional Golfers and top Amateurs from across our Region pit their wits against a tough, challenging, local golf course. A field of 56 competitors will embrace the challenge on the day, all with the hope of reaching the final qualification stage.
Having previously hosted the event between 2008 and 2012, it is extremely rare to see Regional Qualifying return to the same club so quickly. Bob Lockwood, Chair of Organising Committee for the event and Vice-Captain of Goswick Golf Club told us; “We are very excited at having the opportunity to host such a prestigious event, and immensely proud of our Golf Course and Club. Following weeks of preparation, we are ready, the course is in excellent condition, and this event will give us the chance to show-case our club. We would like to extend an open invitation for you to visit us on the day and share in the experience.”
Players are due to tee off at 8.30am.
