WICK ladies ran an open competition in memory of the late Margaret Sinclair who was an enthusiastic member of the town’s golf club for over 45 years.

A trophy in her memory was donated by her family for the best nett score.

In near-perfect weather conditions excellent scores were recorded, enabling some of the winners to reduce their handicaps.

First scratch was Dee Macangus who had gross 76 (9). First handicap and trophy winner was Christine Hunter with nett 67 (18) BIH from Morag Mackay, of Reay, also on 67 (30). Third was Hannah McLean on nett 70 (16) and fourth was Reay’s Eleanor Tunn 74 (4).

Best outward score, outwith the prizewinners, was Alison Ross, of Reay, the best inward was Pam Bain, of Thurso, while par threes was Angela Williamson, also of Thurso.

The longest drive came from Ross and nearest the pin was Maureen Johnson.

Macangus succeeded in cutting her handicap back to eight, Hunter to 16 and Mackay to 28.

n Results from the final ladies’ competitions at Wick Golf Club are – Thursday, September 1, stroke: 1, D. Cormack, 82 (11) 71 (BIH); 2, D. Macangus, 80 (9) 71; 3, M. Mackay, 81 (9) 72; 4, H. McLean, 89 (16) 73.
