A Drive For Everyone

Published: 23 Jul 2008

Wearside Golf Club’s biggest calendar event has been hailed a huge success - and it’s all thanks to generous support from JenningsMazda in Sunderland.

When members of the Club were looking for a reliable sponsor for its annual Captain’s Weekend, they approached staff at the Riverside Road dealership, just off Wessington Way, who were more than willing to assist.

The event, which has been taking place at the Club for more than a century, involves more than 540 members from the men’s, ladies and junior sections taking to the green and participating in a weekend of birdies and eagles.

As part of the sponsorship agreement, an impressive range of Mazda vehicles were on display at the front of the clubhouse for the duration of the event.

Chris Nixon, franchise manager at JenningsMazda in Sunderland, said; “We were already involved with sponsorship at the Golf Club and over recent months have forged a strong partnership with the Club.”

“We were delighted to be able to support the Club’s biggest calendar event.”

Founded in 1892, Wearside Golf Club is one of the oldest parkland courses in the North East. Over the years the Club and its members have enjoyed many successes, producing some remarkable achievements, such as holding all four Durham County titles in 1990.

Alec Atkinson, Club Secretary, said; “Despite unsettling weather over the weekend, the event was a wonderful success.”
