Winter Aggregate 3 results.

  • A disappointing field of 12 players fought out the final leg of the Winter Aggregate over the tough layout at Darley golf course in Troon. No one was able to beat par with both the prevailing conditions and the course proving too tough to handle. The fight for the podium places was tight with 3 players tied on nett 82 but Hugh Mackie emerged from the pack due to his better inward half to finish ahead of Dougie Beattie and Ian Young. Runner-up was Alan Smeeton whose front 9 of 39 strokes was only 3 over par. However following a bogey at 10 and a double bogey at 11, Alan's victory chances disappeared with further dropped shots at 13/14/16. A birdie at 17 smartened up the card but the damage had been done. Our winner was Robert Gilchrist who also fired the best gross round of 77 strokes (6 over par). Bogeys at 2/4/7 were countered by a fine birdie 2 at 9 as Robert turned in nett 1 under par. Bogeys at 13/14 were a setback and following a poor chip shot at 16 a double bogey was the result. Two pars to finish brought a solid nett +1 over par overall and a clear margin of victory on the day. With the only birdie 2 of the week, Robert will also pick up the spoils for that competition as well. With all three legs of the Winter Aggregate now completed the overall winner is Jimmy Burnett who did enough to pip defending Champion, Robert Gilchrist to the prize.

  • Amendment to procedure

  • Following 2 incidents where a member was left without a game, the following procedure must now be followed by all players who pull out of a game after the draw has been made. It is now a requirement that the player pulling out contacts EVERYONE PLAYING IN THE GROUP to inform them. This should happen as a common courtesy but clearly has not been.
