Open Events 2017

Hopwood is a popular venue on the North West Open Event circuit. The Hulbert Trophy is an annual qualifier for the Northern Order of Merit and the Club plays host to hundreds of visitors in its renowned Festival Week, when a series of Open competitions are played back to back over six days in late July / early August.

Ladies, Seniors, Juniors and Mixed are all accommodated in their own Opens during the course of the golfing season. The course consistently features in the ‘Best of …’ golf guides, has played host to various prestigious events, including the Lancashire Amateur Championship in 2011, PGA European Tour Qualifiers and The Player’s Tour, and is widely considered to be one of the finest inland courses in the North West of England. In 2013 the Manchester Golf Club played host to the Northern Counties Championship and in 2014 the England Golf Captains.

Twenty four junior golfers from across the Counties of Lancashire, Yorkshire, Cheshire and Merseyside played at Manchester Golf Club on Monday 24th August 2015 in the Manchester Golf Club Junior Open Championship which incorporated the Battle of the Roses event.

All competitors enjoyed excellent weather and course conditions with some very good scores being returned.

Winner of the Manchester Golf Club Junior Open with a net score of 67 was Sam Sharman from Crosland Heath GC followed very closely by Alex Hellewell with a score of net 68 from Waterton Park GC, Wakefield. Luke Kelly came third with a gross/net score of 71. Best girl was Emily Byrne with a 73, Formby Ladies GC.

The Battle of the Roses event run over two days in conjunction with Huddersfield Golf Club resulted in a win for the County of Yorkshire with Alex Hellewell taking best gross score over 36 holes with a combined score of 150.

Special mention should be given to Freddie Stoker, Mason Younge and Travis Eaton who ran him very close over the two days.

Congratulations to all junior golfers who took part
