Whitby: Regional Club Team Winners 2016

Four teams from Yorkshire golf clubs and two from Lancashire have claimed their places in next month’s national final of the England Golf Club Team Championship.

They all won through a regional qualifier at Lancaster Golf Club, Lancashire, and will play off for the title on Monday, 8 August, during England Golf Week at Frilford Heath Golf Club, Oxfordshire.

The team from Whitby led the way with 87 points. The other qualifiers include Shipley Golf Club, whose team won the championship when it was played for the first time last year. A new team of four is representing the club in this year’s competition.

The successful qualifiers were:
