Hotshot Hannah Gregory fought off competition from young golfers from across the county and beyond to lift Matlock Golf Club’s Junior Open trophy.

A total of 39 youngsters took part in the tournament on a course in exceptional condition and on a warm, sunny day with a gentle breeze.

And Gregory, who is the Matlock club’s junior vice-captain, led the field with a magnificent net score of 60 (95-35-60) to receive the trophy from captain Steve Bradley.

The best gross prize was won by another Matlock junior, three-handicap player Tom Mooney, with a fine 72, followed by Hannah Morrison, of Chapel-en-le-Frith Golf Club, who scored 74.

Last year’s winner Taylor Coleman, of Branston Golf and Country Club, topped division one with a net score of 64, while Coxmoor Golf Club’s Ralfie Farnsworth headed division two with 63.
