It was a week of Stableford competitions at Reay, with the ladies, gents and seniors all playing amid sunshine and showers.

In the latest round of the ladies' Summer Eclectic competition, Carol Paterson finished top of the standings with an excellent score of 37 points, courtesy of a round of 78 made up of halves of 40 and 38.

The race for second place was very keenly fought with no fewer than five players finishing on 33 points. Rebecca Munro got the nod, with Sarah Meiklejohn claiming the final podium place.

Eleanor Tunn took fourth place, with Alison Ross – helped by a birdie at the 15th – taking fifth, ahead of Jacqui Greig in sixth.

In the overall standings Eleanor Tunn leads the way, with a narrow advantage over Pam Bain, Carol Paterson and Rebecca Munro.

In the seniors' Stableford competition, Alex Anderson won the latest round with an impressive 40 points, with a brace of birdies at the fifth and sixth helping him to victory.

Pete McCartney birdied the 13th on his way to 37 points and second place, while a solid round from John Brock was good enough for 36 points and third.

Stuart Greig finished a point further back on 35 points, while Colin Struthers managed to birdie the final hole to bag himself 34 points and fifth place.

The race for glory in the Summer Cup is hotting up with two rounds played in the past week.

Round 13 saw Leslie Malcolm top the standings with an excellent 40 points following a round of two halves. After a fairly topsy-turvy front nine, Malcolm came home in level par with a birdie at the 14th offset by a single bogey at the final hole.

Bruce Mackay birdied the 15th on his way to racking up 39 points and second place, while James Halliday took third on 38. Lee Malcolm birdied the fifth on his way to 37 points, and John O’Brien also birdied the fifth during his round of 36 points.

In round 14 it was James Meiklejohn who finished on top with 38 points after an excellent round of 75 which included a birdie at the 13th. James Halliday managed to accumulate 31 points despite having a couple of non-counting holes, with Jack Johnstone finishing third and Mike Halliday fourth.

In the overall standings, James Halliday remains the man to catch on 224, with John O’Brien, Joe Wilson and Cammie Ross his closest pursuers with two rounds left to play.

This weekend sees the club host its annual Safari Open with both ladies and gents competing in this unique team event. On Sunday it’s the turn of the younger generation as they compete for glory in the Junior Open.
