Whiting Bay Golf Club

Sunday November 21, Lamlash friendly. After last year’s pandemic-induced hiatus, it was nice to get back to meeting friends from Lamlash in the first of our winter friendlies.

This time, Lamlash hosted us and laid on a fine morning’s weather with clear skies and a gentle, if cold, northerly breeze. Ideal winter golfing conditions and Lamlash member Scott Campbell made the most of them, returning an excellent gross 71, nett 57 playing off 14, to win the individual event.

On the team front, all matches were close but Lamlash prevailed by 2.5 to 1.5

Congratulations to Lamlash on a fine display of golf and thanks to them for presenting their course in such fine condition.

The layout was ideal for winter golf and after the recent wet weather the course had dried out well with the greens putting straight and true. We look forward to welcoming them to Whiting Bay early in 2022.
