Our Club Captain, Brian Thistle excelled himself by winning the Seniors Open Trophy with a nett score of 68 in windy and cool conditions.  Fortunately it remained dry until the last players came in and many participants commented on the excellent condition and appearance of the course.  Compliments also flew in the direction of Lisa and her staff and thanks are due to all our staff for their efforts.  My own personal thanks go to the volunteers who assisted with registration, starting and collating scores.

The main results are as follows:

We were promised rain later in the day, however thankfully the forecast was wrong and most players enjoyed lovely warm sunshine.  66 couples took part in the competition during this the 23rd year of the Open Greensomes Competition.

A lot of effort goes into organising events like this, very many thanks to Anne Fergusson and her team of helpers – Helen Robertson, Jinty Halley and Sally MacFarlane. Thanks too, to the gentlemen starters at the tee, who valiantly kept the Ladies on time.

A tremendous donation of over £500 will be given to Riding for the Disabled, raised by the raffle. Thank you to the very generous donations from the members and to the helpers at the raffle table on the day.

It was good to see a large number of competitors enjoying excellent catering and staying for the prizegiving in the evening.
