How fortunate that we had such fabulous weather for the final Open of the season, the Ladies Greensome. In addition to the weather gods, thanks also to greenkeeper Craig and his crew – the course was in lovely condition despite all the recent rain. Thanks also to all the ladies who helped out with the catering and in the kitchen, the food was lovely as always! A special mention to Murray and Hugh for managing the scoreboard and raffle.

And the winners of the Trevor Allen Texas Scramble were… the midges! I don’t think any group managed to avoid them at some point during their round.
Winners of midge management were the Curries and Andy, who also won the longest drive. Anne, Mark and Richard were a very close second, and the team from Seil – Mary (who also won nearest the pin), Donna and Robbie – were one shot off the lead in third.
Ladies’ longest drive was Wilma, and gents’ nearest the pin was Kevin Mills. Full results can be found here.

A fantastic day for the teams to compete in this fun competition. Andy R almost managed to combine the ‘Nearest the Pin’ with the ‘Longest Drive’ with his launch on the first, although Allan Stewart won the official ‘Nearest the Pin’ on the third.
Anne did her usual, and blasted the longest drive on the seventh, with Fiona’s pinpoint accuracy winning her ‘Nearest the Pin’ on the sixth.
Gents’ team winners were Mark, Kevin and Mark, and Alice, Anne and Jane came through for the ladies.
Thanks to Mairead and her crew for the food, and Murray and Hugh for the banter and managing the scorecards and results. Full results can be found here.
