2017 Final Results

Pannal was proud to play host to the 2017 North of England U16 Championships 23rd-25th August 2017 which attracted 132 talented young golfers from all over the country and overseas. The event started on Tuesday 22nd August with an Under-16 Girls International Match England v Switzerland, which England won 5-1.
On Wednesday 23rd & Thursday 24th August competitors played 18 holes each day with the top 50 players playing a further 36 holes on Friday 25th August.

The overall winner was Callum Macfie (pictured below) from Lindrick Golf Club with a superb 9 under par for the 72 holes. Holing an enormous putt on the last green, Callum won by 1 shot.
Winner of the Girls Trophy was Daisy Kennedy from Stoke Park Golf Club with 4 under par for the 72 holes. Prior to this Daisy had played in the England v Switzerland match winning both her matches.

Winner of the Under 14 Boys’ Trophy was Jake Snowden from The Oaks Golf Club. Winner of the Under 14 Girls’ Trophy was Rachel Gourley from Artcot Hall Golf Club.

Event History

For many years Pannal Golf Club has been a leader in the world of Junior Golf. From 1957 to 1964 the Club staged the British Amateur Youth Championship where many juniors competed who went on to top level professional careers. Notable winners include Alex Caygill and Brian Barnes. The event returned in 1975 when it was won by a certain Nick Faldo, who set a course record at that time of 65 on his way to victory.

2001 saw the inauguration of the North of England Under 16’s Stroke Play Championship which ran until 2005 and then returned here again in 2010. Again there have been many players who have gone on to great things, including Pablo Martin, the first man to win as an amateur and then a professional on the European Tour.

The event was the brainchild of Anthony Abraham, past President of England Golf, who got in touch with Henry Dean, Pannal Captain in 2000. Pannal hosted it from 2001 until 2005 (incl.) and then in 2006, our centenary, we had the English Boys Championship Finals at Pannal, at a similar time of year, and it was thought prudent to find an alternative venue for the U16s.

Heswall agreed to host it from 2006 and following a later agreement it now alternates between the two clubs on three year terms, returning to Pannal in 2010 and again in 2016.

The club has also staged a number of Junior International matches. In October 2012, England Boys Under 16’s beat Scotland Boys Under 16’s in their annual match. Each year before the North of England Under 16’s there is a mixed international match: in 2016 England Girls took on Switzerland.
