European Champion Club 2019!!!!

City of Newcastle GC have been crowned European club champions after a stunning fightback saw them defeat rivals from 24 other nations at the finals in France.

England’s representatives from Northumberland (pictured above after winning the national title last month) started the day six shots adrift of Germany’s Stuttgarter GC at the Golf du Medoc resort near Bordeaux as the cream of the continent battled for the European Men’s Club Trophy.

With two out of three scores counting towards the team total, a pair of level par rounds from Alex Dixon and Andrew Minnikin left City of Newcastle in among the pack and requiring some final day fireworks.

Dixon duly obliged with a brilliant five under par round of 66 and this – allied with a one under par round of 70 from Phil Ridden – allowed the English champions to add European glory to the national title won in some style last month at Romford GC in Essex.

A team total of six-under par for the two-day tournament was enough to leave all their rivals in the shade. Icelandic team GKG finished four shots adrift in second place.

Dixon’s final round included five birdies on the front nine and also helped him finish second in the individual event just a shot behind Frenchman Raphael Le Bot.

The three-man City of Newcastle team – all of whom have plus three handicaps – stopped a winning run from home favourites Racing Club de France La Boulie who entered the 45th staging of the event looking to win their fourth title in five years.
