Whiting Bay Golf Club

Sunday November 28, Par 3 competition. On the coldest day of the winter so far, members decided to play one of their summer favourites, the Par 3 competition.

It is surprising how much difference moving the tees can make on a course with so many par 3s already on the card. Some found it easier than others, of course, but that’s the way of golf, and there were some remarkable magic twos scored out of a total of 14 of them. Gus Macleod continued his recent form to win with a nett 55.5, while Jamie Macpherson returned an impressive 60 to take the top scratch score.

Result: 1 Gus MacLeod 7.5, 55.5; 2 Stewart Hammond 21, 57; 3 Stan Rainey 4.5, 58.5 acb. Thanks to Nicol Auld for setting up the course. There were some imaginative tee positions and his vision of the fourth hole will live on in nightmares for many. Great fun though and for such a cold day, a nice brisk game.

Fixtures: Sunday December 5, AGA Winter League round two. Whiting Bay vs Machrie at Shiskine.
