2017 Renfrewshire County Matchplay Champion – Craig Thompson of Earl of Mar.
This afternoon’s final between Craig and David Sibbald (Bonnyton) was played in typical Scottish weather – constant rain. In a hard fought match Craig Thomson won 3 and 2. Craig won this title 27 years previous.
Both Craig and David made the Final on Sunday afternoon after narrow hard fought wins over Fraser Lawrie, Lochwinnoch and Stevie Higgins, Gourock – both matches were won 1up at the 18th hole.
Following an excellent week and a Golf Course in top condition a special thank you to the members and staff of Ranfurly Castle for hosting this week’s event and providing the usual friendly welcome.
