Wednesday 4th August – The McNicol Cup
Dating from 2013, the McNicol is another of our oldest trophies popular with local golfers and holidaymakers alike. 35 played in the 2021 competition and found the course at its firmest following the long summer dry spell with unpredictable bounces providing a counter point to the long running tee shots. Some coped better than others but perhaps unsurprisingly scoring was not quite as spectacular as it as been recently. Markus Kroner returned the best gross score of the day to win with a net 62 beating John Rankin by one shot.
1st Markus Kroner (5) – 62 and lowest gross
2nd John Rankin (7) – 63
3rd Gavin Mainds (7) – 64 acb
4th Jamie Macpherson (4) – 64
2s came from Sandy Kelso at the 1st, Finlay Aherne at the 3rd, Jamie Macpherson and Peter Towndrow at the 4th and Crawford Paterson at the 17th
