HOUGHTON Golf Club is putting the final touches to its annual Pro Am – the biggest such event in the north of England.

The tournament takes place on Saturday, July 12, with the first tee-off at 7.30am, running through until 3pm.

There will be 40 professionals playing and each will be accompanied by three of the club’s members or some of the day’s sponsors.

Once again it will be the biggest Pro Am contest in the North East and North West region of the PGA this year.

* The Copt Hill club is also holding a Tri-Golf Festival for up to 100 children next Thursday, July 3.

Tri-Golf is part of the Sunderland School Games and Kepier Primary School Sport Festival programme.

Taking place from 12.30-3pm, it is open to primary schools in the Kepier School Sport Partnership.

Children attending will be in years five and six and will undertake a carousel of eight Tri-Golf activities which will test their chipping and putting skills.
