The Gents Open today was a great success with good scoring producing close results in both handicap and scratch competitions and a hole-in-one for good measure.
The Stuart Munro Handicap Trophy was won by Neil Plenderleith (Liberton GC) with net 65 (BIH) and the Clark Munro Scratch Trophy was won by Paul Ross (Silverknowes GC) with a 69.
Well done to all the competitors and many thanks to Iain Seath for all his work in administering the competition, to the Greens staff for the superb condition of the course which again was commented on by numerous players and the bar and catering staff for looking after everyone in the clubhouse.
Would those players winning a voucher and/or sweep monies please pick up directly from our Professional, Iain Seath.

Congratulations Ladies and enjoy your prize!
The Ladies Open Greensome took place yesterday, 2nd August. We had a full entry of 55 groups of four. The weather was kind to us (mostly) and there was a wonderful atmosphere throughout the day. The Cava tent after the seventh proved popular as always and everyone enjoyed the catering and the fun in the clubhouse. This year, we were very pleased to support Arthritis Research UK.
There were some terrific scores recorded too. As the Competition is firstly handicap, the result sheet prioritised handicap scores over scratch scores:
Congratulations to all of the winners listed above.

Liberton’s great run in the Seniors Inter-Club came to an end today in the final against Royal Burgess GC.
An excellent performance from a very strong Royal Burgess team was just too much for our team of Neil Plenderleith, David Rennie, Malcolm Stevenson and George Wither.
The boys can be justly proud of themselves for the way they played all week.
Many thanks to George Inglis for his team management and for the on course support from Brian O’Neil, Dougie Russell, Bill Kent and Mark Kedar.
