This stableford competition, sponsored by The Half Niner’s, was played on Saturday, 21s August, in very unseasonable weather with overcast conditions and prolonged rain showers. The member who mastered these challenging conditions was Gordon Inglis with an excellent points total of 43. Second was Billy Macdonald who scored 40 points (bih) and third was Ian Wilkie also on 40 points. These winners received prize money of £40; £30; and £20 respectively. The nominated two’s holes were the 6th and 18th, and nine members managed to achieve this feat, with Andrew Webster, Ron Robertson and Jim Rae accomplishing it at the 6th; and Chris Kemp, Ian Stephenson, Colin Finlay, Billy Macdonald, Peter Henderson and Rob Falconer performing the same act at the 18th; all of these players receiving the grand sum of £2 for their efforts. A total of 37 members took part and at an entry fee of £3 this meant that the sum of £111 was available for distribution. As £90 was paid out in prize money to the victors and £18 to the two’s winners, this left £3 for the contingency fund.
Our thanks one again the the Half Niner’s for sponsoring this competition.
