Club Championship Weekend
A fantastic weekend of championship golf ⛳️ thanks to all involved. The green staff for getting the course in great condition, all the players involved in all the qualifying rounds. Not sure anyone would have imagined a few months ago that we’d be playing competitive golf again by now, let alone have such top quality golfers competing for 3 championships this weekend.
The men played their semi finals this morning with Andrew Farmer beating Paul Jones and Matt Clark defeating Lee Phillips to set up a final between our joint course record holders.
Long time Kilmacolm member Roddy Hammond took on the new boy Les Pirie in the inaugural Seniors Championship. With some great play from both men it was Les who was victorious in the end.
The Ladies final was a family affair with the Briggs sisters doing battle. Reigning champion Megan Briggs taking on Curtis Cup player Eilidh Briggs. This was a real tussle of a match with Megan sinking a great birdie putt on 16 to retain the Championship for the 17th year in a row!!
The Men’s final saw Andy trying to be the first Club Captain to be Club Champion but Matt Clark shattered his dream by outplaying his opponent and lifting the cup for a 3rd time.
Well done to all the competitors, there can’t be many clubs that can boast four plus handicappers in their Men’s and Ladies Championship Finals.
