We had a great day at the ladies senior greensomes yesterday. The course was immaculate, and the scores reflected this, with nearly half the field being under par.
Many thanks to all the staff and volunteers at Newbattle for help the day run smoothly, and special thanks to the green-keeping staff for the presentation of the course. Honourable mentions also to our starters on the day, Jim Johnstone, Alan Mac Donald and Ian Sneddon. Thanks again gentlemen.
Congratulations to all the winners. Your vouchers will be sent to you in the next couple of days.
Full results are below.
There is a lot of work that goes into the annual championships both before the day, and on the day itself. With 7 championships to decide over the course of the day it was great to see such good support out on the course and the course itself being in such excellent condition.
The day started early for the greens staff and volunteers who were out from 5am preparing the course to its usual excellent standard. Our thanks go out to them and also to all of the bar staff, the catering team, Scott and Craig in the shop and all the referees and other volunteers who helped make it a very successful day.
The Winner of the Gents championship for 2022 is Jeff O’Malley who wins the title for the second time – beating Stuart Thorburn on the 36th hole of a well contested match.
The Ladies champion is Mo Cunningham who won for an incredible 20th time. Mo beat last year’s winner Margaret Hobbins in the final. Mo couldn’t attend the prize-giving, but we managed to catch her later to get a photo of her with her trophy. Here are Mo and Margaret with their trophies
The Senior champion is Fraser Jervis. Fraser was Runner-up last year, but this year went one better, beating Davy Linn in an excellent match that required 4 extra holes to determine the winner.
