Denis Harvey wins the inaugural SCAPA Garage Open on Sat 28th April.
With the morning players having to contend with wet conditions underfoot, the early leader in the Gross section was Raymond Stanger with a Gross 78. As the weather improved and the sun shining lower results were expected to appear. Later around lunchtime, Shane Stanger from Stromness came in with a Gross 78, but the final morning group of Denis, Stewart Fotheringhame and Chris George all came in with excellent scores. Chris score was Gross 75, followed by Stewart who also had 75, but Dennis was four shots better with an excellent Gross 71.
In the Nett section, Richie Ballentyne lead for most of the day with a score of Nett 65, but later in the afternoon Connor Crawford came in withe winning score of Nett 63 and a significant cut to his handicap!
The presentaion of prizes was held in the Murray Arms, where a good turn out of players was good to see. Thanks especilally to the Sponsors, Scapa Garge for the excellent prizes and to Murrays for the use of their room.
I think everyone enjoyed their day at the Hope and thanks to all the players for turing up to our first Open of 2018.
