Scottish Seniors
3 September 2022

A very successful tournament was held over 3 days at Southerness Golf Club on the Solway Coast between 31st August and 2nd September, and the Scottish weather even played ball with 3 days of glorious sunshine and light winds. As a result, the course was “fiery” and played tricky, even off the yellow tees.

At the end of the day, the competition couldn’t have ended closer, with 2 players tied on 212. The joint winners were new SSGS member GEORGE WRAITH (DURHAM CITY G C) and DOUGLAS CAMERON (WORTHING G C).  Current holder IAN BROTHERSTON (Dumfries & County G C) was 3rd on 216 and picked up the Bronze Medal.

In the handicap section, George also had the lowest Nett score, but as you are only allowed to win 1 prize, the Trophy and Gold Medal was won by ADRIAN DONKERSLEY (DENHAM G C) with a 3-round total of 208 (1 over par). Returning SSGS member BRIAN HALBERT (RATHO PARK G C) picked up the Silver Medal on 209 with a better last round, with the Bronze Medal being won by NORMAN CAMERON (PORTERS PARK G C) also on 209.

In the Age Categories, the following also picked up medals:


Scratch winner Gold Medal  – JOHN FRASER (ROYAL BURGESS GOLFING SOCIETY) – 219

1st Handicap Gold Medal             – KEITH BRUCE (EDZELL G C) – 210

2nd Handicap Silver Medal           -  LINDSAY GORDON (TURNHOUSE G C) – 218 b.i.h.

1st Handicap Gold Medal             – PETER KINLOCH (CARDROSS G C) – 217

2nd Handicap Silver Medal           -  SEAN LYNCH (MINCHINHAMPTON G C) – 221

3rd Handicap Bronze Medal        - ROY SMETHURST (CREWE G C) – 223
