The Ladies Open (Stableford)was held on 3 June, same day as the Jubilee and the Mull of Kintyre Run. This meant a reduced field, but the quality of the play for some at least was superb. The day was fine although for the early starters there was quite a breeze and shots even from the best could be a bit wayward. The course as always was in fantastic condition, thanks to the hard work of Robert Strang our Greenkeeper.
The results are:
Handicap Winners : 1. Fiona Rattray (51 points) – Douglas Park
2. Hilary Oman (38 points) – Machrihanish
3. Jenny Turnbull (35 points) – Shiskine
Scratch Winners : 1. Laura McGeachy (75) – Windyhill
2. Ann Gallagher (79) – Machrihanish
3. Marlene Walker (82 – BIH) – Carradale
The score of 51 points by Fiona, a 12 year old young lady, has never been equalled as far as memory serves and certainly not in the Ladies Section. Congratulations to her for a brilliantly played round.
