Sunday 4th July – The Morton Quaich
A field of 25 (including a few visitors – more of that later) took to the course for the Morton Quaich and thoroughly enjoyed a course in forgiving mood with plenty of run on the fairways and putts running straight and true on the greens. The result was a clutch of good scores with net par being good enough only for 7th place. Captain Stan Rainey, returning from a short forced absence, clearly enjoyed his new found freedom starting with five 3s on the front 9 and finally returning a net 56, to win the trophy by 6 shots. Congratulations Captain. Superb golf.
1st Stan Rainey (12) – 56
2nd Andy Martin (15) – 62
3rd Kerr Drummond (5) – 63 acb
4th Ronnie Mann (14) – 63 acb
Of the 3 visitors who played, former WBGC member Frazer Barr, playing off 7, returned the best gross score of the day (probably of the year) with an astonishing gross 60 which included a front 9 consisting of of seven 3s, one 4 and one 2 for a gross 27. That’s level threes! As a non-member Frazer was not eligible to win the trophy but needless to say he won (plundered might be a better word) 1st place in the cash sweep. A fine display of golf. Well played Frazer.
