Sunday 8th March – Winter Cup Rd 6
With a number of players in contention for the trophy, 9 played in the 6th and final round of this season’s Winter Cup. Despite wet underfoot conditions, and heavy rain that blighted the final few holes, scoring was good and CSS stayed at 63. Neil ”Sonic” Lucas beat that by 1 shot to pip John Pennycott
1st Neil Lucas (14) – 62
2nd John Pennycott (14) – 63
3rd Douglas Auld (209) – 66
Jamie Macpherson returned the lowest gross score with a 71 and Neil Lucas chipped in at the 14th for the only 2 of the round.
The overall winner of the Winter Cup is Wolfi Kroner who prevails on a countback from John Pennycott. Both players returned 3 cards totalling level par of 189 but Wolfi’s last counting score, a net 61 in the 5th round, was enough to let him retain the trophy he also won last year.
March 2020 Fixtures
Sunday 1st March – v Corrie GC at Whiting Bay
Whiting Bay rounded off its winter league campaign with a comprehensive 4 – 0 victory over a depleted Corrie team leaving Whiting Bay in 4th place after 3 defeats and 2 wins. With the recent weather it was quite an achievement to get any golf played at all and many thanks are due to Stewart and Corey for ensuring the course was fit for play. That said conditions were far from pleasant and all who participated are to be congratulated on their endurance. Congratulations too to Lamlash GC on retaining the trophy with an undefeated record of 3 wins and 1 drawn match.
