Friday 7th May – AGA Seniors Crystal Bowl
After a bye in last weeks opening round, as host club Whiting Bay entertained Shiskine at the semi final stage of the Seniors Crystal. Despite home advantage this was no easy tie for WBGC as members of the Shiskine team were closely familiar with the course and had beaten Lamlash in the opening round. As expected the tie was a tight affair. For Whiting Bay, Gus MacLeod and Ronnie Mann fought out a creditable draw with their Shiskine opponents while in the other game John Pennycott and Dougie Auld battled to a 2 hole advantage after 17 holes. This gave Whiting Bay the match and a place in next week’s final against Machrie Bay GC who had overcome Brodick in the other semi.
