Whiting Bay Golf Club

Wednesday June 24, summer trophy. The first summer trophy round following easing of the lockdown rules attracted a field of 17 who found the course in fantastic condition upon the resumption of competition golf. By any standards Stewart has done a fantastic job, rendered even more creditable by the fact he is working unassisted at present.

Scoring on the day was impressive with CSS dropping to 62 and 13 of the field returning scores in the net 60s. Clearly the layoff has benefited players as well as the course but none more so than Nicol Auld who carded a storming gross 61, yet won by only 2 shots.
1 Nicol Auld (6)-55 and lowest gross, 2 David Blair (15)-57, 3 Kevin McAleney (10)-59, 4 John Pennycott( 14)-60 acb. Nicol Auld and Kevin McAleney bagged magic twos @4th. Nicol repeated the feat at the 7th.

Fixtures: Sunday July 5, Whiting Bay Improvements Stableford. Wednesday July 8, dummer trophy.

For the duration of the current pandemic there will be no draws. Players are to make up their own groupings and the  maximum grouping allowed is 3 balls. Scores are to be submitted electronically to See the club website for further details.
