The Super Seniors Spring Meeting, the first of the season,
was held at Tulliallan Golf Club on Wednesday & Thursday this week. The
course was in excellent condition and all 53 players enjoyed the experience,
but judging by the scores, some more than others.
After the 2 rounds, LINDSAY BLAIR (Grangemouth G C) emerged the winner of the scratch competition with an excellent 2 round total of 142 (73 & 69) pipping John Fraser (Royal Burgess G C) by 3 shots. Jim McArthur (Crail Golfing Society) was in 3rd place a further 6 shots back.
In the handicap event, the same pairing took 1st and 2nd places with net scores of 142 and 145 respectively. There were 3 players who finished on 145, but John’s better last round edged out Keith McAllister (Northumberland Golf Club), with Keith Ross (Glasgow Golf Club) taking 4th slot due to Keith’s better inward half.

23rd April 2022: SPRING MEETING REPORT
It was good to get the season started with a successful event at Moray G C with a full field competing over the 2 days. Like many courses Moray G C has experienced some issues with the condition of the course in addition to the pipe work being undertaken by the Air Force base, but I'm sure everyone enjoyed getting our tour up and running and meeting up with friends again after 2 challenging years.
Congratulations to our Chairman, Ronnie Clark on winning our first 2022 event with rounds of 68,69, closely followed a shot back by Stewart Henderson and Bryan Innes on 138. In the Handicap Section, Alan White won on countback with a 139 total followed by George Paterson and Bryan Innes.
Best round of the event was Greg Mackie with a 4-under par 65 in round 2!
Thank you to everyone for supporting our first event and look forward to a successful season.
