Colin Riddle secured his second A Class Championship with a comprehensive victory over Derek Gillie at Torwoodlee Golf Club last week.

Both struggled during the first 18 holes, but rid themselves of their early nerves to produce a birdie fest in the afternoon. No 1 seed Riddle saw off a late charge by Gillie and won the match 4 and 3.

In the B Class, Andrew Rutherford secured a victory on the 17th hole against Jimmy Graham. The C Class gents’ final saw Mike Bowden beat Ian MacDonald on the 18th hole.

In the Ladies’ section, Liz Campbell secured her 11th Championship victory with a win over Denise Richards, while Heather Cuckow won the Ladies B Class.

The Trophy Guy Junior Open was also played, with Robbie Czajka (nett 60) winning the boys’ handicap, while Robbie Lacon (70) secured the Scratch Cup. Rebecca MacDonald (nett 74) won the Girls’ Open.
