Life Members Trophy

Life Members Trophy

Twenty four members took part in Saturday’s competition. The early starters had the best of conditions with the weather deteriorating in the afternoon, this, however did not deter the eventual winner, Brian Porteous (67) by one shot over a trio of players. Gordon Rae, Gary Paisley and Paul Irving, finished in that order.

The par 3 ninth hole caused Gary a lot of pain with a 5 on the 9th and a 4 on the 18th.  There was only 1 two recorded which was scored by Callum Jeffery, not a simple 2 but a shot out of the bunker. Speaking of spectacular 2’s, Brian had an eagle 2 on the 6th hole in the Mid Week Stableford which gave him 5 points.

The decision to reduce the Mid-Week Stableford to 9 holes has allowed working members more opportunities to play and has meant an increase of numbers. No less than 19 members played this week with Callum Jeffery wining with 21 points from Gordon Rae (20 points) David Latimer and Ian Borthwick returned 18 points.

The Captain’s Prize will be held on Saturday 1st June.
