Filgate set to defend title
An elite field will tee off this weekend in the men’s and women’s Northern Amateur Championships at the Mowbray Golf Club. The men’s and women’s Northern championships cater for seniors, colts, juniors, b and c grade players and will see a strong field chasing titles. Front runner for the men’s crown will be defending champion and Prospect Vale Golf Club member Ronan Filgate. The 19-year-old plus two handicapper is one of a handful of competitors who could claim this year’s championship. Challenges for the title are expected to come from Tasmania Golf Club’s Dylan Backhouse, Prospect Vale’s Jack Blair and Royal Hobart Golf Club’s Hunter Gillard. Launceston Golf Club junior member Jorjah Bailey is tipped to take out the women’s event, however Riverside’s Amanda Smith will provide some stiff opposition. Northern Golf Secretary, Rick Sindorff, has advised that post entries will be accepted on the day and to contact on Rick on 0418 909 589 for further information.
