The Jimmy Renton Quaich

Jimmy Renton
Greenkeeper 1970-92

There was a good turnout on Saturday 9th April to compete in the Texas Scramble for the Jimmy Renton Quaich. 80 members took part and although the weather was chilly a good time was had by all. We were pleased to welcome Mary Renton and Mary Lou Watkins to the clubhouse during the afternoon to watch the trophy being played for.

There were some excellent scores with the winners being Stuart Elms, Law Hardie, Dawn Hardie and Kathleen Blackie who returned a score of nett 55.

Coming a close second with 56 points were Karen Small, Janice McClure, Hannah Bullen and June Forson. Third place had to be decided on countback with Michael Laing, Gary Mack, Jamie Martin and Gordon Burns being successful..

Our thanks go to everyone who took part, Jamie and Colin for ensuring the course was in great shape and to Shirley and Dot for looking after us in the clubhouse.

Here is Kathleen representing the winning team, receiving the Jimmy Renton trophy from David Allan. (Whilst being photo-bombed by Michael Turner!)
