There was only a delay in the start this week. Not a cancellation.Which is a step in the right direction,I’m sure we all agree.Kick off was at 9.30 and a field of 18 teams took to the hill in chilly but sunny weather. The winners of the Grouse Trophy this year were the pairing of Bill Walton and Ronnie Douglas who managed to accumulate a total of 72 stableford points and a massive £50 for their splendid effort.Well done to you both! 3 points behind were Jordan Reid and Grant Lightfoot in second place scooping £40, and in third place were your ex Captain John Coyle and your Match Secretary (that’s me! ) on 67 points with £30 shared between them.
There was a prize of £15 for Gerald McMorrow for nearest the hole at the 9th/18th and £10 each for 2’s for Ali McVie at the 6th and Bill Walton,Gerald McMorrow and yours truly at the 15th. A total of £180 was taken in for entry money and a generous £175 paid out leaving a measly £5 for the contingency fund.See you all next week for the Alex Ponton Memorial Cup which is a Foursomes Stroke.That’s drives at alternate holes and then hit about. There is a match scheduled with Minto on Sunday 24th April and there are only 7 names down on the sheet in the clubhouse. We could do with at least 3 more names….
Sorry. Forgot to mention our generous sponsors for this competition who were The Wednesday Club. Many thanks to you all!
