Oxton Invitation at Lauder Golf Club
13 September 2015
With Lauder Golf Course kissed by the autumnal sunshine and freshly watered by yesterday’s rain storm, the course looked a picture and ready for the inaugural Oxton Invitation. Greenkeeper Kenny Boyd got up at the crack of 10 o’clock to prepare the greens for the oncoming challenge and set them up as well as we have seen them this year.
A spectacular spread of refreshments and food was provided by Ronnie and Jackie Malcolm as well as all the pre-competition organisation, huge task well done.
One of the largest fields of the year turned up to play but there was nothing to compare to club captain Dougie Bain’s net 63, keeping it in the family Dougie’s brother in law came 6 shots back with a 69; Mattie Whiteford made it a clean sweep for Earlston with a net 71.
1. Dougie Bain 81-18-63
2. George Cessford 89-20-69
3. Matty Whiteford 80-9-71
