CRAIG STIRLING saw his consistently strong performances throughout Helensburgh Golf Club’s season rewarded when he won the President’s Cup last weekend.

The trophy, for the player finishing at the top of the Order of Merit, recognises the quality of the winner’s play throughout the season’s three monthly medal competitions.

And the President’s Cup wasn’t the only piece of silverware heading Stirling’s way – he also won the Milligan Cup for the best aggregate net scores in each of those three medal competitions, courtesy of scores of 66 in each of the three events.

Also honoured for his performances across the three monthly medals was Terry Smith, who won the Clark Quaich, awarded to the player with the best aggregate gross score in the three medal competitions after he carded scores of 69, 71 and 72.

Meanwhile, the end of September marked the end of the club’s various knockout competitions, with winners including Derick Nash, who lifted the Clarendon Cup for the over-55s, and Martin Lawrie and Gordon McConnell, who won the fourball Kerr Thomson Cup.

The foursomes Blair Lomond Cup was won by father and son Terry Smith and Terry Smith senior, while Alan Bell and George Sneddon won the Ashgrove Trophy for the over-55s’ fourball competition.

Alex Dunlop and Sandy Bulloch took the Chivas Trophy for the over-55 foursomes, while the over-69s’ Antiquary Cup went to Ronnie McKay and Bill Lawler.

The mixed foursome Vilamoura Trophy was won by Peter and June Haggarty, while Louis Carrier won the nine-hole medal final with 24 stableford points, pipping Lewis Slee on a countback.

Terry Smith senior enjoyed another victory, this time in the McRobert Thistle Trophy: he was one of three players who scored 42 stableford points, but took the trophy thanks to a better inward half ahead of Stuart Buchanan and Ross Donaldson.
