Sunday 20th March – Lamlash Friendly
After the weather induced loss of the February fixture we were able to welcome our friends from Lamlash GC to a bright and sunny Whiting Bay for the last match in the series. Conditions could not have been better for this time of the year although the wind did increase as the morning wore on. On the day the match play element of the meeting ended up all square with each side claiming 2.5 points which left Whiting Bay as victors in the series by a margin of 2 games. The ‘Auld Cronies’ individual trophy presented a slight problem as the one game played at Lamlash in November was not scored on the Stableford system for some reason. The scoring for this prestigious trophy was therefore decided on the only two Stableford rounds played which meant John Pennycott won by 3 shots over Serge El-Adam.
Congratulations to the winners and also to Nicol Auld who scored a hole in one at the seventh. Thanks also to Nicol for his generous clubhouse hospitality afterwards.
Altogether a fine mornings golf and great fun for us all to meet up again in such pleasant conditions. Hopefully a sign of a great golfing season to come.
