With 3 days of competitive golf finished at some of the North East of Scotlands premier courses time to reflect.
Day 1 at Royal Montrose links. The rain stayed away but the wind was gusting and made a traditional old links course with mogulling fairways and hidden pot bunkers play tough. Added that gorse was up and firm greens made for a tough scoring day! However pairs managed to find a way and with 43pts by “If Alain Robideaux played golf” showed that with good dovetailing a score could be achieved.
Day 2 onwards to Cruden Bay and a masterpiece intwined into the coast and dunes. Some blind shots and long par 4s into the wind followed by rain showers made for a true Scottish links test. Redesign work on the 9th and 10th have been very well received and the course was a favourite amongst many of you who played it. This was again won by “If Alain Robideaux played golf” with consistently great golf.
Day 3 final day at Trump Aberdeen. A true modern masterpiece and undoubtedly the best course many have played. Huge swales and sloping greens coupled with daunting tee shots and tight pins made for the stiffest test of the week. Winners here with again 43 points was Double Trouble followed by the Bogie Boys.
With good golf on the first 2 days and a great surge on the last day the competition was won by a quality score of 125 by “The Golfer and the Hacker” over 123 by “Fruits of Glory”.
In all a great 3 days of golf on 3 truly unique and different courses. We hope you enjoyed them as much as we did watching you guys battle them. Hope to see you at our events in the future.
