Monday 25th July – The WBGC Junior Open
Following the deluge that hit the big open over the weekend, numbers participating in the junior equivalent were a little down on last year probably due to people not realising just how resilient our course is. Monday morning provided kinder weather than expected though and the youngsters that turned up certainly had a fun day. There was a good spread of ages and as usual the golf was tailored to suit the different age groups. The winner and 2022 WBGC Open Champion is Scott Palin from Old Ranfurly Golf Club at Bridge of Weir. Playing off a handicap of 23 Scott shot an astonishing level 4s round of 72 from the yellow tees to claim his title. Here he is in the clubhouse receiving his trophy and Prizes from Flora Jean Mack.
Our thanks go to all who participated and to the adults who acted as guides, caddies, referees etc; without their input this would be a very difficult day to stage. Thanks also to the course and clubhouse staff who carried on on Monday just as they had left off on Sunday – superb! Finally another huge vote of thanks to the Adair and Foggo families and to Flora Jean Mack for their generous contribution of time, refreshments and prizes. We are once again indebted to them for staging this popular and important event.
See you again all in 2023.
