This event was played on Saturday, 10th April, and once again there was a delay of about one hour at the start due to frosty conditions. When the competition did get under way, the members enjoyed the best of conditions, with long sunny spells and light winds, although some did get caught out with a couple of short lived hail showers in the early afternoon. This was a three man team event, with the two best net scores counting as the team score at each hole. The winners of the Grouse Trophy, with a very good score of 122, was the team of Ian Wilkie; Tom Welsh and Billy Macdonald, and they received a prize of £30 each for their considerable efforts. Second with a score of 123 was the team of Grant Kinghorn; Hughie Macdonald and Ian Main, and they received £25 each. Third was the team of Peter Henderson; Les Rutherford and Andy Pickersgill with a score of 125(bih) and they received £15 each. Prizes for 2’s at the 6th/15th holes were won by Rodney Pow and John Coyle at the 6th; and Jackson Cockburn; Grant Kinghorn; Scott Galloway and Nathan Douglas at the 15th; each of these players receiving the princely sum of £4 for their efforts. There was also a prize for nearest the hole at the 9th/18th (each player having two chances to achieve this feat) and in this case the winner was Dennis Smith who managed to get his ball to stop 2’5″ from the hole. He received a prize of £20 for his efforts and must be congratulated on his magnificent shot from the tee, although it must be recorded as a sad postscript that he failed to convert his score into a two. The entry fee was £15 per team, making a total of £270 from the 18 teams who took part; £210 was paid out to the winners, and with £24 going to the two’s winners and £20 to the nearest the hole winner, this left £16 to the contingency fund.
