Greenscape Pairs - Friday 25th - Sunday 27th June

The Greenscape Pairs is sponsored by our green-keeper Donny Meldrum, and we are very grateful to him for his support. This year's competition reached the semi-final and final stages on Sunday, with last year's winners Eric Slorance and Adam Gallie taking on David Campbell and Anne Woolley while last year's runners up Richie Baird and Peter Gardiner played Neil Baillie and Douglas Craik. Eric and Adam reached the final again with a hard-fought 15-12 win, while Neil and Douglas beat Richie and Peter 20-14 after being five down with five ends to play.

In the final, Neil and Douglas got off to a good start, but Eric and Adam fought back to be just 13-12 down before going down by 24-12, a final score which did not really reflect the close nature of the game.
