County Handicap Championships
The County Handicap Championship of the Renfrewshire Golf Union was held at Eastwood Golf Club on Sunday 11 June.
Playing conditions on the day were good, but the numbers of competitors were down on the previous year with few of the players from the East Renfrewshire area being present.
The winner of the 6 – 12 event was 11 handicap Mitchell Ogilby – Greenock Whinhill Golf Club with a net 70 which included 2 birdies in the first 9 holes.
The next 2 places were filled by players who scored net 71, separated by their last 9 holes.
In second place was 11 handicap Bonnyton Golf Club member John McLaren.
Third place went to 6 handicap Joe Mcarthur – Greenock Whinhill Golf Club.
Fourth place went to Earl of Mar Golf Club member David Brown with a net 72 off his 7 handicap.
In the 13 – 28 event, the winner was George Docherty – Greenock Golf Club who scored net 72 , off a 19 handicap bolstered by an outward 9 holes played in 40 shots.
Second place went to 17 handicap Gordon Sadler with a net 74, despite starting with a 7.
Third place went to Stephen Fitzpatrick – Ranfurly Castle Golf Club with a net 75 off his 16 handicap who started and finished with 7’s.
Fourth place went to 15 handicap Matthew Kelly with a net 78.
These were the only players in this category to break 80 net, showing the difficulty of the course for the high handicap player, also reflected in the scores for the 6 – 12 category.
