Woodham were in a position where they would need to play their younger higher handicap juniors in every match if they entered a team into the Durham Junior Golf League.
This would have put a large amount of pressure on these juniors as they could have been playing single figure handicapped juniors upto the age of 21.
Oakleaf were unable to enter a team as they did not have enough juniors with handicaps of 28 or less.
Chris Lawson JLO for Woodham and Brian Hope JLO for Oakleaf have joined forces and are going to enter a joint team. The Woodham/Oakleaf team will play their home games at Woodham and will be managed jointly by Chris and Brian along with support from Ted Spence.
The team will be regularly changed so all juniors will get the opportunity to play for the team.
