Sunday 16th August – Captain’s Prize
32 played in the second and final Captain’s Prize day to be sponsored by club captain Andy Martin. This year we again played from the front tees with the girls joining the boys in an 18 hole Stableford. A grey morning, which included a short rain shower, soon turned into the fine sunny afternoon the event deserved and scoring matched the fine condition of the course with the top 10 players all matching or bettering par. Colin Nisbet bettered it considerably though with a fine 42 Stableford points to win by 2 from Gus Macleod.
1st Colin Nisbet (14) – 42 points
2nd Gus MacLeod (14) – 40
3rd John Pennycott (12) – 39
4th David Blair (12) – 38
Gillian Lockhart took the prize for the best placed lady player with 35 points.
Once again our thanks go to our captain Andy Martin for his generous hospitality and prizes. Thanks also to John and Nancy for the steady supply of good food and drink and finally to Stewart for the condition of the course which, all agreed on the day, is quite incredible for a green keeper working solo.
