Spring Meeting 25th April 2019
Results and Report
Paul Moultrie wins the opening event of the 2019 OOM season, with a level par total of 142. In second place was Maurice Lindsay (The Grange G C) one shot adrift on 143, with Niall Lamond (Tantallan) and Richard Johnston (Glebervie) tied equal 3rd on 145.
In the handicap section, ex-pat Ken Thomson (Bramhall Park) had an excellent 2 round total of 139 Nett, 3 under par, with Niall Lamond and Alan Harrington (Western Gailes) tied for 2nd on 141.
Play over the 2 days was challenging, with the weather breaking from the recent good spell. On Thursday, we were faced with high winds throughout the day and the later players had to contend with heavy rain, thunder and lightning. Play had to be suspend for 30 mins in the afternoon for player safety. On Friday the wind had changed direction slightly and intensified. The early starts had the best of the day getting around in the dry, before the heavens opened and heavy rain persisted for the afternoon. Scoring was excellent in view of the conditions.
CSS for round 1 was 72, and for Round 2 74. (Par and SSS for Powfoot is 71).
