STOCKSFIELD Golf Club is to remember a club legend this summer.

The club will host a member's competition and officially open its new Bill Martin Terrace.

A former captain, chairman, secretary and president at the club, Bill Martin sadly died in 2021 following a short illness. He was a longstanding member of Stocksfield but well-known in golf clubs throughout the Tyne Valley and beyond.

The competition, on June 3, will raise money for the Bill Martin Bursary - used to support the development of junior golfers at the club.

Tributes poured in for Bill after he died. He was the director of Hexham-based care organisation Helping Hands. Founded in 1988 by two families – the Martins and the Beatties; Bill, joined the business in the early 1990s after his retirement from Blyth Power Station.

After only a few years, he went on to assume the role of MD.

The club will also celebrate the Queen's Platinum Jubilee on the same day with live music and food.

Tickets are available from the club at £20.00 per person which also includes entry into the raffle.
