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.
