Thanks to everyone who participated in this years invitational Silloth competition, which took place over both days of this weekend (30th and 31st July 2022)
Silloth is a great event (with the most complex handicapping system known to man) that welcomes guests from other clubs.
There were some terrific scores on both days and the list of winners is attached below – 6 handicap and 2 scratch prizes were awarded – congratulations to the winners
Many thanks to all those who helped on both days; and to the bar staff, catering and greens staff for making the day such a success. We always need volunteers to help make our tournament days run as smoothly as possible, especially where there are external visitors – to welcome them to our course and make their day as enjoyable as possible.
And, here are the results – many congratulations to all the winners. Your vouchers can be picked up in the Pro shop; all vouchers are held under the winning members names for you to share. Also any sweep money for 2s can be picked up in the pro shop.
The Newbattle gents seniors open took place over 2 days on Tuesday and Wednesday 26th and 27th July. The weather was excellent for both days and the course was presented in excellent condition which led to some great scoring over the 2 day tournament.
Many thanks to all the bar and catering staff, for their service on the day. Also many thanks go out to the staff in the pro shop and all the volunteers who helped prepare the course, and helped with starting all the players across the 2 days. We could not put these events on without this support.
And once again many thanks to our green staff for preparing the course to such a great standard in advance of the tournament days. A lot of the visitors told us they loved the course and admired the condition it was in.
We hope all participants enjoyed their day and we hope to see many of you back next year. A lot of you have told us you would definitely be back which is great to hear.
Prizes are awarded for the top 7 handicap scores, and for the top two scratch scores in each age category (where any player qualifies for a prize in both scratch and handicap, only the higher award is paid, with the smaller prize moving onto the next best player in the relevant category).
There were some cracking scores over the 2 days, and Alastair Purves from the Woll emerged as the overall champion for 2022 with an excellent Nett score of 61. Here is a list of all the prize winners.
Prize vouchers for all the winners will be sent to your home clubs.
In addition, anyone who entered the 2s sweep and had a 2 – please contact the pro shop directly about your prize – Scott or Craig will be happy to help – call them on 0131 660 1631.
See you all next year!
The annual ladies open was a huge success and enjoyed by everyone who played on the day.
Many thanks to all the staff and volunteers at Newbattle today for helping the day run smoothly, and a special shout out to the green-keeping staff for preparing the course to such excellent condition. Thanks also to our gallant starters.
