The final action of the summer season at Reay Golf Club saw some excellent scoring in warm autumnal conditions.

Donald Mowat finished in second place after his halves of 40 and 42 were good enough for a round of 82 for nett 67.

On Sunday the club hosted an Open Scramble, and the trio of Eleanor Tunn, Scot Gray and Jordan Youngson showed the rest of the field a clean pair of heels to win with a fabulous score of nett 57.

Their round of gross 61 was made up of halves of 30 and 31, with only twos, threes and fours registered on their card.

The Reay duo of Wayne Mowat and Joe Wilson teamed up with Wick’s Ali Mackay to take second place on nett 60 after a round of 64.

Lybster’s Robert Macleod, David Nicolson and Alistair Young took third place on countback after their round of 62 was also good enough for nett 60, while Simon Harper, Kenny Farmer Snr and Kenny Farmer Jnr were fourth, also on nett 60, after their round of 68.
