5th May 2022 - Presidents Cup - Montrose Golf Links - 19/20th May

Gents see link below to initial draw for Montrose on 19/20th May. I’ve published this initial draw early as I’m away from this Saturday the 7th.

 

As a result, any changes will not be reflected in the draw until the final draw is carried out on Tuesday 17th.  During the period from 7th to 17th I’ll only have limited access to emails etc so there may be delays in responding to any communications. If you now can no longer make this event, please advise as we have a small number of members on the reserve list.

 

The draw is also available on our website under draws and results.

29th April 2022: 

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.


Full results can be viewed on Competitions Tab, under draw and results.

Updated Super Senior Order of Merit standings can be viewed in the OOM Tab.

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.


Congratulations to all the vouchers winners - they will be available for collection at Murcar.
