Whiting Bay Golf Club

Sunday November 25, Winter Cup round two. A total of eight played on a beautiful but cold winter’s morning. Scoring was generally good with seven cards in the net 60s and one no return – he knows who he is! John Pennycott topped the list with a fine 62 and the CSS came down to 62. Magic twos Dougie Auld @4th. 1 John Pennycott 15, 62, 2 Wolfi Kroner 16, 64, 3 Jamie Macpherson 5, 65 ACB and lowest gross.

Monday November 26, WOBOT Sweep. A total of nine participated in the inaugural Whiting Bay WOBOT sweep played over Shiskine GC. Play was off SGU handicaps adjusted for the 12 hole layout at Shiskine and the golf was followed by a fine lunch in the Clubhouse Grill and Tearoom, which is to be highly recommended. All present thoroughly enjoyed themselves, so much so that a broad agreement was reached (unusual at any WOBOT function) to try and replicate the experience at Corrie GC in the near future. 1 David Blair 10, 27pts, 2 Wolfi Kroner 11, 26, 3 Andy Martin 8, 23.
