Monday 24th July – The WBGC Junior Open
Our annual Junior Open just grows and grows and this year we had an excellent turnout of boys and girls ranging from pre school years to teenagers. As ever the day was organised to the last detail and all golfers played a course tailored to their age and ability with even the smallest – the “Tiddlers” – able to enjoy a game, especially after a short lesson from professional golfer, David Pirie, our thanks to him for that important contribution. A generous array of prizes ensured no one left empty handed and along with the burgers and drinks everyone had a great time
The winner and 2023 WBGC Junior Open Champion is Rory Stewart from Bridge of Weir. Here he is receiving his trophy from WBGC captain, Doreen Mainds. The best scratch score came from 2022 champion Scott Palin. Congratulations to both of them.
Our thanks go to all who participated and to the adults who acted as guides, caddies, referees etc, with a special mention for Flora Jean Mack and Nellie Mckechnie, perennials when it comes to helping out at this popular event. 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 for organising. It’s an encouraging sign to see so many youngsters interested in the game
