Gents competitions report May

Gent’s Competition Report

May 2017 Competitions

May has been a very busy month at the club with many competitions in all sections and the course in excellent order. A big thank you is due to the greens staff for all their hard work

Competition Summary

The first Saturday competition was the Harbin Trophy which attracted a very large field and was won by Roger Courtenay, giving him his second trophy of the season.

A change of format ensued later in the month with our annual Texas Scramble won by George Bennion, John Morrow and Michael Connelly, a round marked by scoring a 2 at each of the four par 3s.

Our May medal was cancelled on the 13th of the month due to a flooded course but rerun on the 27th, seeing Jim McCullach continue his excellent run of form to win class A, and Iain Bruce emerged as winner in Class B

Though we are just into June we have hosted a very successful AmAm competition with well over a hundred golfers enjoying a beautiful day on a course in absolutely pristine condition on June 2nd. The team led by David Lowing walked away with the honours in a very close fought encounter.

Saturday 3rd June saw the club host the Speirs Trophy, one of the oldest interclub competitions in the history of Scottish Golf with a most impressive trophy presented to the winners, who this year came from Elderslie Golf Club, playing a very high standard of golf on a very testing day.

We look forward to another good month on our beautiful course.
