With the Winter League final drawing ever closer, many golfers are keen to improve their 10 round tables. However, week 18’s weather played a huge part in the results.

The course was unfortunately closed on Saturday, and Sunday was played in a freezing cold north-easterly wind.

Leaders in the Scratch Doubles were K Douglas/B Ferguson and S Dempster/B McGillivray, both with gross 65 being the only pairings to add to their totals. Keith and Bruce got their 10th score on the board, meanwhile Stuart managed to hole his tee shot on the 6th. The only other sub 70 round came from the leaders N Irvine/H Roulston wither 69, although not impacting their 10 round total of 617.

None of the competitors in the net competition improved on a 10 round total: N Irvine/H Roulston (65), N MacArthur/M Griffin (66) and J Hepburn/D MacKay (67).

In the Singles (Stableford) league, Russell Duncan (currently 2 nd in standings) returned a very impressive 42 points. Malcolm Ritchie continues to improve on his 10 round total with a solid 38 points and looking likely to be in the final again looking to retain his 2016 title.

William Chalmers also improving with 37 points.

With only 4 weeks remaining with the final on Sat 18th March, be sure to check progress of all the golfers on our webpage and club noticeboard.
