Whiting Bay Golf Club

Members and friends enjoyed a  fine 2019 prize-giving evening in the clubhouse on St Andrew’s night celebrating past successes and anticipating those to come. Thanks to all who attended, to captain Andy for managing the presentations so well – never an easy gig when Wolfi is in the room – and to John, Corey, Louise and Rachael for keeping the food coming and the drink flowing.

Sunday December 1 WBGC v Machrie at Shiskine. A last minute change in circumstances led to what would have been the February fixture being brought forward and reduced to 12 holes due to the shortening December days. Up against a strong Machrie side WBGC halved 2 games but slipped to narrow defeats in the 2 remaining games to lose the match by a margin of 3-1.

Fixture: Sunday December 8, Winter Cup rd 3, one draw at 10am.

Sunday December 1, AGA Winter League, Duncan Trophy at Shiskine. Thanks to Shiskine for hosting at short notice, the greens were super, thanks to Stewart and his hard working team. The food was fantastic, so thanks to Alan, Siobhan and their staff. This match was reduced to 12 holes due to frost in the morning.

Shiskine drew against Brodick, Lamlash won 2.5 to 1.5 against Corrie,  Machrie Bay won 3 to 1 against Whiting Bay. So table after Round 2 is: Machrie Bay 4 pts, Lamlash 3 pts, Whiting Bay 2 pts, Brodick 2 pts, Shiskine 1 pt, Corrie 0 pts

Next round will be played at Lamlash on Sunday January 5.
