April Monthly Medal and Brown Cup - 28.4.18

The April Monthly Medal & Brown Cup sponsored by Les Miller Garage Services was played on Saturday, 28th April, 2018, and a very good entry of 49 members took part.     This time the winner, with a very good score of (73-12-61) was Gordon MacGregor, but some sympathy must be extended to Ewan MacFie who had an immaculate round of (74-11-63) with one unfortunate blemish at the par five eighth where he racked up a 10 with two lost balls in the process.     In third place was Matthew Brass on a score of (77-13-64), and in fourth place was Michael McVie on (68-03-65)(bih).    Five players managed to get a hole in two at the nominated holes and these were Scott Galloway; Graeme Kerr; Ewan MacFie and Les McAllister at the 7th, and Stephen Henderson at the much more difficult 16th.     Each of these players received the princely sum of £4 for their efforts. The entry fee was £3, making a total of £147 from the 49 entrants; £120 was paid out in cash to the winners and £20 to the two’s winners, with the contingency fund better to the tune of £7.    Additional prizes carried forward from the President v Captain Team Challenge were won as follows:- Nearest Hole at 6/15th - Scott Galloway (6 golf balls); Nearest Line at 8/17th - Les McAllister (15 bottles of beer); Nearest Hole at 9/18th - John Coyle (6 golf balls).     Incidentally the weather was mostly overcast with sunny spells, light showers at times, and with a very light wind from the south east.
