Smithfield Open

The new season kicked off in dry but testing conditions on Saturday. CSS actually crept up to a counting 67 showing just how tough it was all day.

65 nett was the magic total required to win and it was reached by no less than four players. The Kirkwall trio of Liam Smart, Robbie Gillespie, Michael Brown and home town Kenny Inkster. Thankfully these days the countback is done by the computer and after much number crunching it was Liam who lifted the Cup ahead of Kenny who settled for 1st gross instead with his 71, 3 clear of Andy Woodward. This meant Robbie was prompted to 2nd Nett with Michael third.

Raymie Rendall and Davie Garson rounded out the top five with 66 and 67 netts.

Thanks must go to Rae for preparing the course so well this early in the season and of course to the longtime sponsors from the Smithfield Hotel.

Spartan Cup

In what must be the biggest turnout for a Spartan Cup in decades, 32 players took part this year in the annual season opener.

With a combination of Winter League regulars and irregulars the long standing rule of the cup only being won by someone who has played 3 times in the winter came into effect. Junior Ewan Foubister returned the best nett on the day (64) showing all the hard work on his game over the winter including the trips away to Dornoch as part of Dougie's junior training programme is paying off.

As for the cup itself it was a three-way tie between Denis Harvey, Mark Sinclair and Angus Sutherland all on 65 netts. So the dreaded countback is broken out early this year and it decided upon Mark as the deserving winner. Denis had to settle for best gross on the day with his 70 but he's young and will learn...!
