It was great to arrive back from holiday and see the course looking so fantastic. Also to witness the attendance of so many youngsters at the Saturday morning coaching, the place was just buzzing.

A quick reminder that on Thursday this week the club is hosting the area primary schools 9 hole championship. I hear there is a large entry for this and that we could do with as many members as possible to assist with taking the youngsters round the 9 holes. Anyone who could help with this should arrive at the club around 9am when you will be allocated a group of youngsters to guide round the course.

I hear the weather has been rather perfect over the last few weeks and this has obviously been reflected in some of the fantastic  scoring in the weekly competitions.

In the ladies competitions  the results over the last few weeks are as follows:

Saturday 30th April – IMF Brooch, winner Moira Jones with a net 75.

Wednesday 4th May – Monthly Medal, winner Erica Porteous with a net 72.

Wednesday 11th May – WASS Cup, winner Elena Rogers with a net 71.

The mens results for the past few weeks are equally impressive:

Friday 29th April – Summer league, winner Brian Duguid with a net 68.

Sunday 1st May – Milner Cup, winner John Fleck with a superb 43 points.

Friday 6th May – Summer league, winner David Aitken with 40 points.

Sunday 8th May – Monthly Medal, winner Stuart Jamieson with a surprising net 60 (71 Gross). Rather impressive.

Friday 13th May – Summer league, winner Stuart Rhodes with a great net 68.

Sunday 15th May – Brown Cup, winner David Nielsen with an unbelievable net 59 (71 Gross). Another impressive round.

Friday 20th May – Summer league, winner Alex Long with 39 points.

Sunday 22nd May – McRobert Thistle Cup, winner Ian Brown who was up on the course.

A quick reminder that the Seniors Open is due to be played on Thursday 2nd June. Presently entries are very low and if you intend to play please and haven’t added your name to the list, please let us know as soon as possible.
