This competition, sponsored by Nod Purves, was held on Saturday, 24th July, in perfect weather, warm and sunny with light winds. The winner of the Claret Jug with a magnificent score of 79(19)60(bih) was Grant Gill. Second on the same net score was Jim Rae with another great score of 68(8)60, and third was Les McAllister on a score of 66(4)62. These winners received prizes of £40; £30 and £20 respectfully. The nominated two’s holes were the 9th and 18th, and six 2’s were scored at these holes; Les McAllister and Hughie Macdonald doing the necessary at the 9th; and Les Rutherford and Mitch Thomson at the 18th; whilst our worthy winner Grant Gill accomplished this task at both of these holes; each receiving £3 per hole for their efforts. A total of 39 members took part, and at an entry fee of £3, this left £117 for distribution. With £90 being paid out to the winners, and £18 to the 2’s winners, this left £9 for the contingency fund.
Our thanks once again to Nod Purves for sponsoring this competition.
