Finals Day Results Saturday 5th September 2015.

On a beautiful Saturday afternoon with Cambuslang Golf Course playing like Augusta, the Titans of the Golf Club gave battle on Finals Day. The excitement was palpable and the defribulator on stand-bye in case the excitement became too much. There were lots of supporters down to appreciate golf under pressure and pressure there was with in abundance. If I must single one match out for particular comment it would be the Reed Trophy which is the Scratch Handicap Trophy for Juniors.  Zac Geddes and Stuart Mitchell had a ding, dong battle with pole position changing regularly. At the 18th they were all square with Stuart 25 ft away and Zac 12 ft from the pin. Stuart holed his monster put throwing the pressure on Zac who shaved the hole but missed. These two are both club champions of the future!

Full Results:-

Peter Hayes Trophy.

Stuart Geddes beat Paul Foy.

Captains Cup.

Billy Campbell beat Tom Nisbet

Duncan Trophy.

Greig Dobinson beat Fraser Bell

Borgie Quaich

Eddie Marshall beat David Bell

Reed Cup

Special thanks must go to Stephen Cameron and his greens staff for presenting the course in such a wonderful condition.

Seniors’ Team Semi-Final Play Off

The ‘rain delayed’ Semi-Final Play Off against Strathaven G.C. was eventually played on Thursday the 3rd. of September at Hamilton G.C.

In an extremely well contested match, with all but one game going to the 18th, Cambuslang G.C. lost on countback by 1 hole of the 179 holes played in the match. the result was :-

Cambuslang G.C. two and a half.   Strathaven G.C. two and a half, on countback Strathaven pipped Cambuslang by one hole.

The match, though very keenly contested, was played in the proper spirit and at the conclusion of the contest all of the Cambuslang team congratulated the opposition and wished them well in the final.

Even though all of our team were disappointed,  they can all be very proud of their performances in the Semi-Final and throughout the year, so once again thanks to ALL who played in the team this year
