The above tournament took place on 1st June in perfect conditions for playing golf with long sunny spells and light winds. This was reflected in the scoring which was generally very good. The team scores consisted of the aggregate best two net scores at each hole, and the winners with a total of 126 were Gerald Beggs; Alan Brown and Robert J. Wilson. Second was the team of David Heard; Ron Robertson and Andrew Reid on 128; and third was the team of Ian Wilkie; David Beveridge and Norman Roxburgh on 129. Prizes of £35 each; £25 each and £15 each were awarded to these winners. Individual prizes for scoring a 2 at the nominated holes were awarded to Les Rutherford; Ron Robertson and Rodney Pow at the 6th hole, and to Ronnie Douglas who was the only player who managed this feat at the 18th; each of these lucky people receiving £10 each for their efforts. Nearest the hole at the 6th/15th was Brian Barnard who won 3 miniatures of gin and 3 golf balls; and nearest the hole at the 9th/18th was Len Gateson who also received 3 miniatures of gin and £10 cash for his efforts. Twelve teams took part in the competition and with the entry fee being £24 per team this amounted to a total of £288; and with £225 being paid out to the winning teams and £40 being paid to the 2’s winners, this left £23 for the contingency fund.
Many thanks go to our President Jocky Hume who, as well as providing the pies and filled rolls for our sustenance, also donated the golf balls and £10 cash as part of the prizes for nearest the hole. Our thanks also go to Grant Kinghorn who donated the miniatures of gin. Last, but by no means least, our thanks also go to Andrew Robertson; Stuart McCall and of course our bar convener Donald Ballantyne, for attending to our needs.
We are of course eternally grateful to Office Specialities Ltd., who have sponsored this tournament for a number of years.
