TALENTED Helensburgh golfer Sarah Kemp demonstrated that her win last month in the club’s first-ever mixed medal competition was no fluke – when she triumphed in the second playing of the event as well.

Kemp romped home in the first class section of the innovative tournament, beating off stiff competition from a field of male golfers eager to steal away her crown by scoring an impressive 41 stableford points in the tournament’s first class section.

Ben Armstrong was the best of the men in the field, one point behind Kemp, while the second class was won by Malcolm Hyatt, on 40 points. Derek Nash took the third class medal honours with a score of 38 points.

Despite having to settle for second place in the first class of the mixed medal, Armstrong did finish top in the McRobert Thistle competition on the same day; his 40 points gave him the win by a better inward half after his points tally was matched by both Malcolm Hyatt and Kevin Robb.

Meanwhile, Helensburgh’s various club teams are busy with fixtures in their various county leagues.

The club’s ladies’ team started their campaign in the Allander League with a defeat at near-rivals Cardross, but followed that with a fine win at home to Clober as they aim to retain the title they won in 2018 for the first time in 32 years.

Helensburgh opened their account in the ‘5 to 8 League’, so called because your handicap needs to be within those numbers to participate, with a good win over Bearsden, while the club’s senior men lost their opening league match away to defending champions Milngavie before recovering well with a convincing home win over Dougalston.
