The weather this month has been mixed although we where blessed with a fantastic day for Captain’s Day. The day began with the now annnual 9 hole junior competition for the Les Burton Trophy. The winner once again was young Chloe Aitken with a fine net 31, however much praise must go to little Sophie Roberts who although still under 10 years of age played her heart out to come a close second with an amazing net 32. Following the juniors the main event took center stage playing for the Jack McQueen Trophy and once again the ladies were to the fore. The winner although only on the last 6 holes was once again Janetter Davidson with38 points Marena McCLymont second aslo on 38 points. The gents Quaich was won by Scott Jamieson who was also on 38 points. The junior Quaich was won by Fiona McQueen who shot a fantastic 37 points. Following the main event the traditional junior parent putting competition was won by young Hector McCulloch and his Mum. Once again the members all contributed to an amazing buffet and we would like to thank everyone who worked so hard to make the day a huge success.

The ladies have had a fine month with Marena McClymont and Anne McQueen winning the Southerness Open and Elena Rogers and Erica Porteous in the prize list at the Dalbeattie Open. In the ladies club competitions Marena McClymont won the June medal, Elena Rogers won the McEwan Cup and Gill Warnock won the Shipley Bogey competition.
