Residents take up Ryder Cup-style challenge

RESIDENTS of a retirement village took on the staff in a Ryder Cup-style golf challenge to mark the opening of their new putting course.

The challenge took place at Middleton Hall Retirement Village, in Middleton St George, near Darlington, and saw eight residents team up with eight staff members around the 9 hole putting green and a round of the pitch and putt course. The residents won by a point – ending with 8.5 points to their 7.5.

The event was held to mark the opening of the latest facilities at Middleton Hall, a new putting course and the three hole pitch and putt.

Dave Richardson, head of operations at Middleton Hall, said: “We had a great turn out for it with residents putting in plenty of practise beforehand to get in shape.

“It got pretty competitive out there with only one point in it and with the oldest player aged 83 it showed that age was no barrier to winning.”

The residents were rewarded with drinks on the house in the retirement village’s bar after the event.
