Shopping Week Open
Sunday saw two players blow away the field about as much as the westerly gale did...
In the gross it was of course Steven Rendall whose ball striking and short game genius saw him claim the cup by 8 shots with a 68.
The nett section saw as equally a dominant performance from Stan Seator as he was the only player in a field of over 70 play to his handicap with a 76 nett 65.
A big thank you to all who made it round (and even to those who didn't!) and especially to the numerous overseas visitors who played and got a small taste of Orcadian golf for their trouble!
Thanks too go to Grays for their continued support and very generous sponsorship shown in the array of prizes up for grabs.
And lastly thanks to Rae and Lee for getting the course into great shape again.
Congratulations to Denis Harvey on winning this year's slightly delayed Club Championship. His two round total of 141 (70,71) was 3 clear of Dougie and 6 clear of Ronald and Angus.
The nett Champion was Paul Sinclair who also won the 'Green Jacket' for best SGC member in the practice round at Thurso earlier this week!
Thanks to Julia for her continued sponsorship and presenting the prizes and also to the Ferry Inn for their support in this event which saw over 50 people compete.

Junior ClubGolf Camp
A glorious day for our 'double barrel' shotgun start. The early targets in both cups were set by Steven Rendall's 67 gross and Robert Gatt's 70 nett 60.
The high noon starters couldn't quite measure up though with Dougie Slater's 70 nett 62 and in-form John Park's nett 62 being the best of the bunch.
Northlink 'Per Mare' Open
Scoring was surprisingly high (for most!) on Saturday but with the greens speeding up and the rough thickening it maybe is a sign of things to come.
Ali Seator overcame long term injury which may even have seen him not join this year to post a nett 61 and claim the cup. Also among the early starters was Steven Rendall who overcame the worst weather of the day to post a 66 gross and claim the gross title by three shots from Angus Sutherland.
Thanks to Northlink for the very generous support for the whole weekend and especially for those mini-patties in the buffet!
