Nod’s a class above

IN last Saturday’s Centenary Cup, sponsored by Jim Farrell, Nod Purves lifted his game and the trophy after finding his short game which had been hiding for a while.

Results: 1, N. W. Purves nett 64; 2, R. Pow 66; 3, D. Cassidy 67; 4, J. Farrell 68. Twos: S. Henderson, S. McCall, J. McLaren, A. McVie and W. S. Walton shared the sweep. Ian Stephenson, who had a two at the par four first hole, wins nothing, but gets his name in the paper. On Sunday, Alison and John Rutherford were singing in the rain after winning the mixed greensomes sponsored by that nice man Alan McGhee. Results: 1, A & J. Rutherford; 2, L. Robertson & J. Coyle; 3, A & K. Allan. Scratch: C & N. Purves. AM

l AFTER a few years’ absence the ladies hosted their popular invitation greensomes in pleasant conditions. The victorious couple were lady captain Carol Purves & Grace Black from Torwoodlee.

Last week the ladies played for the President’s Prize.

After a lovely supper, lady president June Robertson showed her generosity by presenting the lucky winners with cases of luxurious wines.

Carol Purves continued her good start to the season winning the silver division with an 81 (11) 70 bih, while, in the bronze division, Anne Allan triumphed returning a 92 (21) 71. The scratch prize was claimed by Diane Cassidy with a 77. All entry money on the night and a donation by the ladies was sent to MS Borders Branch.

l SATURDAY was Championship Finals day at The Woll and all four games were close and very enjoyable to watch despite the weather.

In the Ladies Club Championship M. Innes played J. Cambridge with Janice winning on the 19th. The Gents Championship S. Watson won over J. Nelson. It was a nail-biting 36 holes with Scott winning the title for the first time.
