Shiskine Golf Club

Four juniors took part in the rescheduled Shiskine Junior Championship on Wednesday October 14, playing for the Handicap Trophy which was won by Jack Dunn with a fantastic Nett 32.

This was followed on Friday with a competition for the Scratch Trophy. Rory Currie beat Donald Currie and Stanley Tod, in a close match, beat Jack Dunn. In a closely contended Match Play the following day, the final result saw Rory beating his cousin Stanley on the 12th hole to win both the Scratch Trophy and the Junior Club Championship.

Congratulations to Rory and Jack, but well done to all four, who were a credit to themselves, their parents and the club. The club would like to acknowledge Clare Buchanan and her helpers for all their hard work in organising this event, without whom this wouldn’t happen.
