Finals Day

  • Category: Headline News
  • Written by Allan Davidson

What a fabulous day of golf we had yesterday.

In our championship match, Stuart Thorburn was clinical in his execution. 2 over par early in the round, he turned it around in dramatic style with 8 birdies to close out the first round in a 6 under par 63 and 8up on Jamie.  Stuart would go on to close out the 2nd round and claim his 7th Championship and set a new record for most won at Newbattle.

In our Ladies Championship, the match was close throughout, with Barbara and Claire going toe to toe. Barbara would eventually be triumphant and claim her maiden Ladies Championship.

Our other finals were competitively fought. Our champions for 2017 are:

Club Champion Stuart Thorburn
Ladies Champion Barbara Hamilton
Seniors James Barnes
A class Lee Cuthbert
B class James Gibson
C class Walter Porteous
Ladies Bronze Leslie Currie
Junior  Mathew Corbett

 

The success of yesterday is not a moment of luck or good fortune.  The planning that has went into the day is both extensive and detailed.  My personal thanks to all, both on and off the course who made this happen.  

So now we look ahead to the summer with new champions, an exceptional golf course and a host of upcoming events. I'm sure you will agree, Newbattle Golf Club is a very special place to be part of just now.
