Hill ain’t easy when breezy

There was a grand turnout for Captain’s Day at Selkirk last weekend.

The course was well prepared and the table was full of excellent prizes, but there was a good blow across the Hill.

One family was perhaps less affected by the wind than others and enjoyed a good share of the prizes, but the winner was Daniel Pringle who played some crisp golf to win top prize and a cut in his handicap.

Results – A Class: 1, D. Pringle net 64; 2, J. Easson 66; 3, R. L. Pow 68; 4, J. S. Rae 68. Scratch: R. D. Ballantyne 70.

B Class: 1, M. Easson net 68; 2, G. Easson 71; 3, G. Gill 73; 4, H. MacDonald 74.

Nearest The Hole: D. Pringle and M. Easson; longest drive: D. Pringle and A. Pickersgill; straightest drive: W. MacDonald and G. Gill.

This week’s sympathy goes to Gerald Beggs, who, fresh from his recent success at the Moffat Seniors 
Tournament, couldn’t hit the ball for toffee on Saturday and included a 12 at the 17th in his round.
