2018 Gents Open

In perfect weather, 128 players teed it up for our 10th Annual Gents Open on Sunday 24th June. The course was in perfect condition after a long hot dry spell. One of the conditions of our competition, is that players can only win one prize. It was a close run affair, with the winner having to be decided on a count back over the last 9 holes. Lee Jenkins (Elderslie G.C.) and Kilmacolm’s Conar Campbell both had excellent rounds of 1 under par 68, however Lee Jenkins lifted the trophy and the first prize voucher of £160. Conar had the consolation however of picking up 1st place in the A Class Handicap event with his Net 63 earning him a voucher of £110. In 2nd place with a Net 65 was Jim Schiavone (Lundin Links), 3rd place was Frank Boyland (Kilmacolm) with a 66 edging out Norman Bowie (Machrahanish) on countback. On the same score score of 66 was Kilmacolm’s Charles Conway who was unfortunate to miss out on the prizes due to countback.

Stewart Watt wins 2017 Gents Open

Another successful Gents Open Competition was held on Sunday 25th June, when 128 players braved the windy conditions at Kilmacolm. The high winds in conjunction with the fast contoured greens led to some high scoring, with the CSS on the day being 70 for members, and 72 for visitors. 
At the end of play the Scratch Trophy and overall winner with a gross 70 was STEWART WATT, from neighbouring Old Course Ranfurly Golf Club. (Pictured below). Sharing a gross score of 70 with Stewart was Kilmacolm member RYAN COPLAND, who unfortunately missed out due to Stewart’s better inward half. Ryan however had the consolation of winning the A Class Handicap prize with a net 68. Ryan is pictured below receiving his award from Club Captain Kenny Wilson.
In the B Class Handicap section, this was also won with a net 68 by Kilmacolm Member MITCHELL ROBB playing off 11.

Many thanks to all who helped make the day a success. To Lindsay and David in the Pro Shop, to Stewart and all the Bar and Kitchen staff, to starters Jim Hood, Jane MacDonald and Ken Macconacher and to Tom McKinley for scoring and general support. Finally to the Greenkeeping team for presenting the course in such an excellent condition that prompted widespread praise from visitors and members.
