The winter competitions have finished up at Brunston Castle Golf Club with Lee McClymont winning the junior winter league, John McPartlin the men’s winter league and Ronnie Mills the men’s singles matchplay. Congratulations to the winners and to the greens staff who, despite all the bad weather, kept us on full fairways and greens with only two consecutive days where the course had to be closed. An amazing feat considering the rainfall there has been.
The summer golf season is now under way at Brunston Castle with a fantastic day on Saturday 29th March. It was the traditional season opening Captains versus Vice Captains team event. There were 18 pairs in total and the match was won by the Captains’ side by 6 points to 3. Congratulations to Allan McWilliam and Marion Whiteford (the gents’ and ladies’ Captains) and commiserations to John Denholm and Norma Sadler (the gents’ and ladies’ Vice Captains). Everyone had a fun day with the match being followed by a buffet and the course in fantastic condition to get us into the 2014 season swinging.
Our Professional, Chris McDade, has returned from his travels and should be well rested for a busy season ahead. He is ready to repair all those clubs and swing faults now, that you have been saving up over the winter for him!
