There were birdie’s galore in Round Three of the Men’s Strokeplay Championship at Reay, with club greenkeeper Jason Norwood putting his knowledge of the course to good use after he topped the standings on nett 67. Birdies at the 5th and 11th holes helped him to a round of 71 and the win. Kenny Farmer (Snr) posted halves of 42 and 45 for 87 and nett 68 to take second place, edging Brent Munro into third place on countback. However Munro did have the consolation of posting the lowest gross score of the day, an excellent round of 69 which included birdies at the 1st, 6th and 13th holes. Gregor Munro was also on the birdie trail, with his coming at the 3rd, 6th and 8th on his way to a round of 70 for nett 71 and fourth place in the nett standings.

In the latest North Point Distillery Senior Stableford action, a strong homeward nine helped Hugh Millar top the leaderboard on 38 points. A good start to his round helped Pete Barker to second place on 37 points, with Tim Hawes competing the podium places in third place on 35.

In the ladies June Medal Heather Campbell fired an excellent round of nett 67 to bag the silverware. Jane Mackenzie maintained her recent fine vein of form to take second place on nett 69, ahead of Pauline Craig who was next best on nett 70. A trio of players, Eleanor Tunn, Joy Fraser and Sarah Meiklejohn shared fourth place on nett 71.

A birdie at the 17th helped Willie Steven to second place on 38 points, while Alistair Gunn birdied the 5th on his way to 37 points and third place.
