What a mixture of weather we had at Brunston Castle over this last week or so!

We started off with some cold weather for Dad’s Army’s stableford competition on Monday 28th April. Jim Herd made the best of the conditions and won with 23 points over the 9 holes.

On Wednesday the 30th the ladies joined Dad’s Army for their first Tri-Am competition of the year.

It was cold, wet and windy and due to a few lucky holiday makers who couldn’t play, George Scobie and myself were called in to make up the numbers.

Thankfully we had to play for Dad’s Army and not the ladies – neither of us have the legs for skirts!

I was lucky enough to play with the gent’s captain Allan McWilliam and Pat Gray as we were the victorious team.

Everyone seemed to have a fun time and I think it will be a successful format for the year ahead.

The men had their first club championship qualifier on Saturday the 3rd May. The wind was gusting and swirling, making conditions very tricky. Allan Brownlee coped the best, winning with a nett 74.

Sunday the 4th was again the junior medal. Despite a bad forecast they had a decent day of weather with Lee McClymont winning with a nett 73.Well done to all the winners, hopefully the summer weather comes soon and the competitions keep going from strength to strength.
