Gary for Ramside.

Former PGA North region champion Gary Donnison will be defending his Ramside Hall Pro-Am title on Tuesday July 3. The former hotel porter and milkman from Hazlerigg, Newcastle, now living in Cheshire, was out of action for three months last summer with torn muscles below his rib cage, which wrecked the end of a promising season. Donnison said: "It's a course I always feel comfortable on. I like to attack and it's open off the tee, so that suits my game. And all the par fives can be reached comfortably with a drive and an iron, so they are all eagle chances." To enter a team (pounds 250), contact Ramside on (0191) 386-9514.
