Well the great weather has well and truly broken, however the good news is that the course is back to it’s beautiful green best and during August both the ladies and Gents managed to complete most of their scheduled competitions.
The ladies August medal was won by Gill Warnock with a fine net 71. The ladies Muirhead Rosebowl Open was played in wet conditions and was won by the ladies secretary, Kay Gillespie with a superb 37 points. The ladies Doris McQueen trophy was won by Erica Porteous with a fine 36 points.
In the Gents competitions the MacMillan Scratch trophy was won by Gary Millar with a magnificient 65, one off the course record. Well done Gary. The August medal was won by Nevile White with a good net 65 and the two round Duguid Scratch Trophy was won by Anthony Graham with 162. The Paits Trophy was won by David Aitken & Jeff Sutcliffe with 67 points. Alas the final competition of the month, the Presidents Putter was cancelled due to heavy rain.
