The 72-hole World Amateur Golf Ranking event and the final fixture of the Titliest Footjoy England Order of Merit is now firmly cemented on the calendar of prestigious amateur events.

The field is restricted to 117 due to shorter daylight hours and carries a maximum prize pot of £1,800 with a maximum handicap of 1.4..

Last year, Windermere’s Adam Chapman who off a challenge from fellow England A squad teammate Jamie Bower to clinch the Shaw Plate by one stroke.

Since then the 19 year old was been selected for the GB&I 20-man Walker Cup squad for the match at Royal Lytham & StAnnes on September 12-13

The Pannal event is organised by the Northern Counties Golf Union made up of the unions of Cheshire, Cumbria, Durham, Isle of Man, Lancashire, Northumberland and Yorkshire but is open to players from all over the UK and beyond.

Northern Counties secretary Dennis Trickett said: “ We understood that England Golf was looking for an event late in the season so decided with their help to set up this championship. After some disappointing weather that restricted play in the first year, the championship is now going from strength to strength. It was keenly contested in 2014 and we are anticipating an even better event this year.”
