He also won the Scratch Trophy with a 49. The Club Championship was won by Rory Currie on the 11th after a very close match. They were presented with their trophies by club captain Fiona Henderson.

Wednesday June 30, Cancer Relief Stableford. A field of 24 players took advantage of yet another fine day to return some very impressive scores. The top nine players equalled or bettered par and 20 managed 30 points or more. Morning starter John Pennycott posted the number to beat on 40 points and Nicol Auld did exactly that, coming in on 41 points from the evening players.
Result: 1 Nicol Auld (4)41pts, 2 John Pennycott (11)40, 3 Neil Lucas (13) 39, 4 Gavin Mainds (7) 38. Magic twos Sandy Kelso @1st, John Pennycott @2nd, David Mair @14th, Jamie Stewart @16th, Nicol Auld, Gavin Mainds, Ronnie Mann and Jamie Stewart @17th.
Sunday July 4, The Morton Quaich. A field of 25 (including a few visitors – more of that later) took to the course for the Morton Quaich and thoroughly enjoyed a course in forgiving mood with plenty of run on the fairways and putts running straight and true on the greens. The result was a clutch of good scores with net par being good enough only for 7th place. Captain Stan Rainey, returning from a short forced absence, clearly enjoyed his new found freedom starting with five threes on the front nine and finally returning a net 56, to win the trophy by six shots. Congratulations Captain. Superb golf.
Result: 1 Stan Rainey (12)56, 2 Andy Martin (15)62, 3 Kerr Drummond (5)63 acb, 4 Ronnie Mann (14)63 acb.
Of the three visitors who played, former WBGC member Frazer Barr, playing off seven, returned the best gross score of the day (probably of the year) with an astonishing gross 60, which included a front nine consisting of of seven threes, one four and one two for a gross 27. That’s level threes! As a non-member Frazer was not eligible to win the trophy but needless to say he won (plundered might be a better word) first place in the cash sweep. A fine display of golf. Well played Frazer.
Fixtures: Wednesday July 7, Summer Trophy. Sunday July 18, Raymond Curtis Salver Stableford (Open). Until further notice there will be no draws for partners and players should arrange their own groupings.
