The continued wet and windy weather meant there was limited competitive action at Reay this week. With flooding still affecting some areas of the course, Saturday saw players competing in an 11-hole sweep over holes 7 to 12, 15 to 18, before finishing up on the first hole.
An excellent run of three pars in four holes on the stretch from the 15th to the 18th proved crucial to David R Craig as he secured the victory with a fine score of 51 for nett 40.
Willie Williamson pipped Andy Bain to second place after both finished on nett 41. Williamson parred the 11th, 15th and 18th on his way to a fine gross score of 55.
Bain had the consolation of posting the lowest gross score of the day, with five pars helping him to 46.
Stuart Greig and Willie Paton were next best, both playing steady golf to post matching scores of 50 for nett 42.
On a tough day for scoring, Alex Anderson was the only player to post a birdie, which came at the 12th.
Weather permitting, this Saturday will see the ladies playing in the fourth round of their Winter Stableford competition, while the gents will be in Winter Eclectic action. On Sunday ladies and gents will be able to play in the Winter League Stableford.
