Roddy Gray Cup success for Workshops quartet
THE weather was unkind at Thurso Golf Club last week with spells of rain and lower than normal temperatures. This did not deter the few who played in the summer league round eight on Thursday.
Andrew Main (9), who plays in all weather, was the deserved winner with 36 points. Unusually for Main he had three double bogeys on his card but a birdie at the eighth made up for this.
Chris Williamson (16) finished with three double bogeys as he recorded 34 points, two ahead of Steve Spargo (8).
On Saturday the first fundraiser of the year was held at Thurso Golf Club. The Roddy Gray Cup was once a prized footballing trophy but it is now contested on a yearly basis on the golf course between local football teams.
This year £680 was raised for Marie Curie which was a fantastic effort by all concerned. The format was Stableford scoring with the best three scores counting and the winning team was Dounreay Workshops with a total of 113 points.
The team members were Innes Mitchell, Alan Coghill, Jamie Riddell and captain Stephen Fidler, who has made it a treble of wins this year with the season still in its infancy.
