Final Fling brings a close to the men’s competition season

Orkney Golf Club held its final 18 hole strokeplay competition of the summer last Saturday with the final fling being played. Eighteen golfers played in the men’s section on a breezy but reasonable morning for golf.

Third spot went to Stevie Linklater on nett 67, while Stewart Kemp was second on 65.But the winner, with the lowest gross, was Wayne Small with 76-14-62 nett.

The previous week saw the final rounds of the September series played, with Brian Firth and Brian Kane winning on Monday and Wednesday respectively. 

This draws the 2023 summer season to a close and I’m sure all who played over the year would like to thank Chris and all his staff, plus the volunteers, who helped keep the course in fantastic condition throughout the year. 

Also a big thank you to both Stuart and Sandra, their respective committees and helpers, for keeping everything running so smoothly throughout the season. 

Good luck to the winter golfers for the season ahead.  Hopefully the weather will remain decent for you all.
