The weather adversely affected course conditions and finals are now being played over a protracted period.

The junior girls, however, managed to play on Sunday with their Championship contested by sisters Sarah and Zoe Kemp.

Sarah’s recent good form was evident in her leadership in the match until she was pipped at the post by Zoe who took the honours to retain the title.

The Junior Boys Championship is contested over 36 holes and took place on Monday in a match between Douglas Willoughby and Ryan Cleland. Douglas was four up after the first round and holed a 20 foot putt on the 31st hole to seal the win.

While the remainder of the Club Championship was cancelled, there was still plenty of other action around the Helensburgh greens.

The medal competition was closely contended at Division One level by Graeme Proud (six) and Alan Birnie (eight) who both carded a net 68 on a course that played to a Competition Scratch of 71 (two over par). A stronger back nine earned Graeme the first place but both are due to enjoy handicap reductions as a result. In third place was Steve Scott (12) with a net 70 Division Two was also hotly contested with net 68s returned by George Mundie (20) and Robert Campbell (14) George won on count back and Ian McKenna (13) closely following them on 69.
