On Monday we had our third junior, junior competition morning for Hannah and Matthew Page and Marlee Clanaghan. This week it was won by Marlee Clanaghan giving each of the three a win over the three weeks; as Hannah won on the first week and Matthew on the second. Now all is to play for next Monday, when we will have a final round of three holes – fingers crossed for good weather to bring this competition to a conclusion.
We had 10 juniors at the final Thursday holiday competition, when each member played individually.
Nathan Simpson and Aron Gunn went out as a senior, junior pairing and played 8 holes, which they tied on 53 each – a good score giving them each 2 points on the leaderboard. This gives Nathan 10 points, second to Angus Dun on 12 points, in the older section, over the 5 weeks.
The younger juniors competition was a closely contested affair, with Ewan Lillico coming out on top with a score of 53 over 6 holes and Ben Weir second with 58. Thanks go to Lewis Jeffs’ grandfather Robin, and Jennifer Donald, who came up to play as a Hacker, but ended up playing and making up a three with Stuart Mitchell and Isaac Simpson. Robin scored Lewis, Cammy Robertson and Robbie Gunn’s round, while Aileen Scott Aiton scored for Ben, Ewan and Michael Johnston, on his debut as a junior member.
Of the younger juniors Cammy is top of the leaderboard for the holidays, followed closely by Lewis. Presentation of prizes will happen after the Musselburgh Quaich competition at the end of September.
We’ve had good fun over the holidays, and Aileen, ably supported by Archie Anderson and Bob Towers, has certainly enjoyed her time with the junior members.
