Thurso Golf Club's Freswick Cup, donated to the club in 1934 by Admiral Sir Edwyn Sinclair Alexander-Sinclair, was contested recently over two rounds.

After the first round Michael Macgregor was the leader after a 76 gross gave him a nett 68. Also on nett 68 was Jordan Youngson, who birdied the second and 12th as he recorded the lowest gross of the day with a 74.

A shot further back was Ross Sutherland.

In round two the winner was Harvey Cowe with a nett 69, with Steve Spargo a shot behind. However, Jordan Youngson again had two birdies, at the 11th and 15th, for the lowest gross – this time with a 76 – for a nett 71. This gave him a total of 139 which secured him his first trophy in 11 years.

The winner of the September Medal was William Durrand (15) with a fine nett 68, two shots clear of Mick Ross (17).
