Captain’s Day was held on Saturday, June 28 at Kilsyth Lennox Golf Club and the event was played in glorious weather.

A fabulous net score of 63 from the pairing of Hugh Nelson and Eric O’Neil assured them of being the comfortable winners of this season’s captain’s prize.

The fund-raising charity day was a huge success and club captain Frank Brien would like to thank all the team who rallied round to assist in making it a memorable day on the course and also at the evening presentation and disco.

On Wednesday, June 25 round two of the Wednesday Shield produced a personal best for Scott Taggart who claimed a unique double when he scored his best ever gross and handicap result with a magical gross 68. This was also good enough to claim the handicap category on 63.

His excellent round also brings him into contention for the midweek trophy.
