2018 Orkney Matchplay Championship

Streamline Open

A rare overseas victory went to Innes Christie from Mortonhall in Edinburgh with a 68 gross from the 4 handicapper. Hopefully he'll be able to come up again next year and defend the title.

In the nett it was a fantastic nett 60 from Jamie Drever from South Ronaldsay which won by two clear shots from Shane Stanger and Hugh Clyde.

This of course was the first half of the OMPC qualification and both gross and nett is tightly packed with most still in contention for those 32 places which will be decided in Kirkwall at the Hourstons Open.

Thanks once again to Streamline and their representative Gareth for there continued support and generous sponsorship.

Smithfield Open

The first Open of the season saw not only great weather, great course conditions, great scores but also a Dounby Great to present the prizes!

Although it is a nett cup the prize went to one of the two players who had the best gross on the day - quite a rare event on a nice day. Kenny Inkster overcame a testing start after a treble bogey at the first but played the next 17 holes two under par to equal Steven Rendall's 66 gross. His 61 nett proved to be good enough by a shot to beat Ewan McDill into second who must rue a 6,5,9,4 finish for his nett 62. Did anyone tell him he wasn't playing Winter League?!

Thanks again to the Smithfield for their continued sponsorship which is most welcome and also to their representative Gary 'Big Red' Johnston for presenting the prizes.

Spartan Cup

Twenty three turned out on Sunday for the annual Winter into Summer season event and they were greeted to the joyous sight of summer greens and full length tees.

A big thank you to greenkeeper Rae for taking the time and effort on Saturday evening to do a pitch inspection and allow us back on the full course. The main stipulation however was that everyone made sure to repair pitchmarks. Well Rae, you can be assured I caused no damage - after 10.5 holes the only two pitchmarks I had to repair were a yard apart both on Margaret Wilson lawn!

Anyway onto the real golf... it was really just a three horse race in the end as Winter veteran Robbie Stanger posted a nett 62 for third place - is this a sign he's finally converting his winter form into summer scores?! Just a single shot ahead of Robbie was the Twoball Fours partnership of Donald Johnston and Dougie Slater. An early season showing of the dreaded countback was required and rather fittingly it was Donald who edged it by just half a shot on back 9 countback.

Donald did just manage 3 winter rounds this year showing he learnt from his mistake last year when he had the best nett in the Spartan but hadn't played enough rounds to qualify for winning the cup! Well played Donald and thanks again to Shane and Rae for allowing us on the full course.

Winter League

Well done to (S)Harcus on winning the Winter League again. Steven was a slender 12.5pts behind but won the birdie count (just!) with Gus claiming third on the last day. Well done everyone for making it a sucessful and well supported league despite tough conditions.

In the end a total of 34 different competitors braved what was a pretty wet winter. 30 actually manged the 3 rds to qualify for Spartan Cup honours.

Thanks to Ronald for running it once again.
