BGA Summer

Summer Stableford Competition, Hawick Golf Club

The summer Competition was played in what could be hardly called summer. It rained all the time. Unfortunately, the wet conditions were part of the cause of a serious accident out on the course. Derick Martin noticed that his trolley was running away and chased after it but slipped and fell and this resulted in him dislocating his knee cap. Thanks to Mobile phones an ambulance was called and was able to drive over the course and whisk Derick off to hospital. We wish you well, Derick, and hope you are back soon.

A trio of Gala lads teed off at 8.00 but freely admitted that the course won. As it should, it took a Hawick boy to show them how it was done. Ewan Reilly composed a round of 12 4’s, 4 3’s a 2 and a nasty 6.for 40 points. Would anyone catch him, many tried but nobody got close.

The Newcastleton boys usually pick up a prize but only Jamie Collins got close failing by 1 point. Michael Patterson finished 3rd in the A class with a better inward half than Jamie. Ross Williams was 2nd in the A class with 37 points.

Steven Aries (36) and Neil Comley (34) were 1st and 2nd in the B class. Fraser Brunton and David Beveridge won prizes with 30 and 28 points.

We thank the catering staff for their hospitality and Ally George for cutting the greens, and Adam Ballantyne for looking after his injured partner. A personal thanks to Keith (he knows who he is) for helping getting bodies together which made the competition a success and all the players who braved the miserable conditions.
