The North of Scotland Open was held at Elgin Golf Club on 21/22nd May. The course was presented in great condition and made the more tricky over the 2 days by a strong breeze which tested the players.
CSS for Round 1 - 73, Round 2 - 73
The winner with a aggregate gross score of 146 against a combined CSS of 146 was Ronnie Clark from Erskine Golf Club, playing off +3 handicap. This despite having to play with a borrowed driver on both days following an unfortunate accident in the car park on day 1 when someone accidently ran over Ronnie's clubs.
In the handicap competition, 2 superb rounds of net 71 and 70 allowed Douglas Greenhalgh, New Golf Club St Andrews to emerge a close winner by 1 stroke. Playing off a handicap of 12 this will ensure a good handicap cut for Dougie.
Congratulations to Ronnie and Dougie. Full results are available via the competitions page and a fuller report will follow in due course.
