Annual Scootie Auk challenge

Our annual Scootie Auk competition against Westray Golf Club took place on Saturday 6th August.
The weather was disappointing for the time of year but at least the rain stopped when the main competition started; unfortunately, it started for the additional putting competition although the general good spirits weren’t at all dampened, maybe because of all the wonderful homebakes on offer.

As to be expected, home advantage played its part and the Hope brought the trophy home, although the best score of 34 nett was posted by Katy Mowatt playing for the away team. Other notable scores were those of Liz Pirie (nett 36) and Angie Ross (nett 39).  We look forward to next year’s match, hopefully with better weather but not too much leg exposure, June! 

Thank you to all the Westray Ladies for their great company and to Derek Ward for presenting the trophy, aswell as mowing the greens in the rain again.
