Our flagship event of the year, the annual Pro-Am sponsored by The Audio Room in Hull, is due to take place on Friday 24th May and is filling up nicely with teams from around the region.

Professionals will be competing for a fantastic £1,000 first prize, one of the highest in the region, but it’s not just about rewarding the professionals. Amateur teams will be competing for a prize table worth over £2,500, with the first team prize being worth over £800! Not bad for a day out on the golf course, eh?

There are still a handful of spaces left for the event so if you would like to be part of one of Burstwick’s biggest events drop us an email now .

Teams consist of three amateurs and a professional (who we can allocate for you, if required) and the day includes refreshments at various parts of the course including a fully stocked halfway house, and a two course meal afterwards.

Matt Daley’s Am-Am filling up already

This April we will be hosting the first annual fundraising Am-Am for our new professional Matt Daley. It is the first event of it’s kind to be held at Burstwick, and it follows on from when Matt held the same event when he was at Hainsworth Park Golf Club.

The Am-Am is open to all players at any club as long as they have a valid handicap and entry costs just £20 per person, including a bacon roll and coffee!

Matt’s Am-Ams previously were extremely successful and it looks like this one will be just as popular as we already have over 20 teams booked for the day.

If you would like to take part in this event go online to www.opens.burstwick.golf and book your team in now!

Team USA retain the Burstwick Cup for second year in a row!

Last weekend we hosted our coveted Burstwick Cup which is a Ryder Cup style event where members of Burstwick are split into Team Europe and Team USA for a 16v16 brawl!

Captains Bruce Carter (Europe) and Tony Howard (USA) both had great teams on paper, and it was obvious the weekend could go either way.

With fourball betterball matches played on the Saturday the scores came in at 5-3 to the Americans, but with double points available on the Sunday in the singles matches it was obvious that slender lead could quite easily fade away very quickly. And it did.

The first three matches on Sunday went to the Europeans, and suddenly with 13 points to play for the Americans started to wobble.

Myself and opponent Chris Young (who beat me 3&2 in the second match of the day) took it upon ourselves to grab a golf buggy and promote ourselves to theoretical vice captains, as we went around the course to see how the other matches were playing, and give our teams some encouragement.

The more Chris and I ventured around the course it was evident that this cup was going to be nip and tuck. Both the Europeans and Americans had a fair share of matches going their way, and with a lot of strong characters out on the course it was tough to call who might falter and who would strive to victory in each game.

In the end, the final few matches edged it towards Team USA and the race to 12.5 points was won with a couple of matches still left to come in. Congratulations to the red team on their brilliant victory, and thank you to all that played the weekend. I’m sure we will see many of you again in the Burstwick Cup next year!

Enter your team into the Spring Open Am-Am - Raising funds for Course Furniture!

The Spring Am-Am has now been re-arranged for 21st April due to extreme weather conditions. All tee times have been rolled over to that date.

Our first open event of the year is already around the corner; the Spring Open Am-Am. This competition is open to all golfers from any club as long as they have a valid handicap, and entry costs just £80 per team.

As always with our first open of the year, money raised will be put towards some furniture for the golf course. We have not made the decision on what we would like for the course yet but to give you an idea of what to expect, last year we bought some hand-made wooden bins, and in 2016 we bought some recycled plastic benches.

We still provide great prizes for this Am-Am, despite the fact that a good portion of the money is raised for the furniture, so we expect a nice amount of teams to take part as usual.

We appreciate every team that enters this event as it helps us improve the course for the people who play it. If you fancy a great day out for just £20 a person why not give us a call on 01964 670112 and book your team in? Times are available from 8am to 1pm.

Congratulations to the winners of the 2017 Target Golf League!

Congratulations to the winners of the first Target Golf League at Burstwick: Sam Bamford, Joe Harrison, Will Maston and Jamie Maston!

Their team managed a fantastic final score to overtake the existing leaders (David Key, Sallie Nielsen, Steve Alger and Nev Kelly) on the final night to become champions. Sam and his team blasted past with a final week score of 395, after being just 10 points behind first place starting the night. Sallie’s team just couldn’t quite get things to go their way on the night and only managed 261, so the deal was sealed!

It’s safe to say that the league was a massive success, and we will be most definitely running one again at the end of January 2018. Well done to the winning team and thank you for everyone taking part!

Christmas Open Am-Am postponed until Saturday 18th November

Last Saturday we were due to host our 2017 Christmas Open Am-Am but due to persistent rain we had to call the competition off and postpone it until Saturday 18th November.

All the teams will remain in their original tee time slot unless we are told otherwise, so please let us know if you cannot make the rearranged date.

Let's hope for better weather the second time around and we'll see you on the first tee!

Europe Claim Massive Victory at the Burstwick Cup!

Last weekend we hosted the prestigious Burstwick Cup which is in it’s ninth year at the club. For those who aren’t aware the Burstwick Cup is a Ryder Cup-esque event where players qualify for a place earlier on in the year, then the teams are randomly drawn into two teams; America and Europe.

Each team is led by the Men’s Captain and Vice-Captain, but as our Vice couldn’t make it this year, past Captain Andy Wilson stepped in to help. Having beat current Captain Alan Mackinnon last year in the Burstwick Cup, Alan was happy to accept Andy being the opposing captain in order to seek his revenge.

As the teams were being drawn out of a hat early in the week it was obvious that Europe were gaining many of the “big guns” such as Jack Maxey, Lee Webster and Mike Huzzard, but the USA team also had a few heavy hitters including Ashley Heidstra, James Bisby and David Lines.

As the matches got underway on Saturday the fierce competition was obvious with both myself and Alan Mackinnon going straight for the green on hole 1, while our partners Andy Wilson and Steve Young hit their tee shots safely on the fairway.

As the results began to come in, USA got an early lead of 1.5-0.5 but immediately after that things started to look grim for the red team. Europe rallied in matches three to six, taking all four points, and at this point it was looking great for Alan and his team at 4.5-1.5.

The last two matches were what the USA team needed to get themselves back into the game before Sunday singles, and they went down to the wire but the Americans managed to clinch the points. Europe 4.5 - USA 3.5 after day one.

In day two players went out on the course to play individual matchplay against each other, and there are twice as many points up for grabs. The USA team got off to a good start with Captain Andy Wilson beating Alan Mackinnon in match one, to even the scores up for the Americans. 

For the next few matches both teams jostled for points and it wasn’t until the final five matches that Europe came through with a very strong finish, earning them a landslide win 15-9. After the matches a two course meal was enjoyed and many drinks to boot! It was another cracking weekend with great support from all the players. 

See you all next year!

Burstwick Enjoys Most Successful Pro-Am to Date!

Nearly 100 people visited Burstwick on Friday 27th May to take part in our Annual Pro-Am sponsored by Santander, and it was a fantastic day with some great scoring!

The weather gods blessed us with hardly any wind at all and warm conditions which got better as the day wore on, the sun visited from 3pm onwards and into the evening which made for a very pleasant round for the later teams.

On the day we had tee sponsors on most holes and a half-way house sponsor which all contributed to a fantastic prize fund of £2800 for the professionals and £2000 worth in amateur prizes, making the Burstwick Pro-Am one of the best value events in the area.

Teams on the day came from all over Yorkshire and the course was looking the best it has ever been for the event. With scoreable conditions the day looked perfect for some low shooting from the professionals, and Alex Belt's course record of six under could have been seriously under threat.

The Yorkshire PGA greeted players as they registered for the competition, handing out pin placement cards and giving everyone information about how the course was playing, and free refreshments were on the tee ready for the players going on their journey. The half-way house which was sponsored by Premier Stores give players a chance to refuel on various savoury and sweet snacks, preparing for attack on the easier back nine.

When the scores started rolling in it was clearly visible that the added length on the course and inclusion of trees into play have made the course more difficult in the two years since the last Pro-Am, as the winning professional score was the highest it as ever been at 1-under par.

The winning team with a fantastic score of 18 under par was A. Belt (Pro), C. Clarkson, P. Kaye and S. Mews, taking the victory with a one shot lead! A whopping five professionals tied for the top spot with scores of 69 each which shoes just how close-run the event was! Other winners included:

  • Straightest Drive (Hole 2) - L. Webster
  • Nearest Pin (Hole 5) - P. McDermott
  • Nearest Pin (Hole 14) - A. Mackinnon
  • Nearest Pin (Hole 17) - P. Daley
  • Putting Champion - P. Daley

Congratulations to all that won prizes at the event, and thanks again for all the kind compliments about the course and supporting the club. See you all next year!
