With the Open Championship on just up the road the course has been busy with visitors on their way to spectate. Without fail all those that have taken the time to play our course on the way by have been full of praise. Let’s hope they pass on the word and encourage their friends to come and play.
On a sad note, once again it is necessary to cancel one of our open competitions. Next weekend was to be the Tillhill 4BBB, however as we have only 8 couples from the club and no entries from other clubs we have decided it is not viable to play the competition. However we will now play for the trophy as a usual Gents Sunday competition with a 12 noon tee off. Those who have already entered will be in the draw, any male member who currently does not have a partner and wishes to play can contact me and I will endevour to pair them with someone.
On Wednesday the ladies played their July Medal and Moira Jones returned a fine net 71 to win.
Sunday was the second round of the gents Shepley, Shepley Trophy. The winner was the first round leader Brian Duguid who returned a magnificient net 63 to back up his first round of net 64.
congratulations to Brian & Erica porteous who won their semi final of the Johnstone Trophy against Larry & Moira Jones in what was reported to be a very fine mixed foursome match.
