THREE medal competition finals in eight days took place at Helensburgh Golf Club as the season draws to a close.

The finals for the Breingan medal, Ormond medal and Anderson medal are among the highlights of the annual schedule at the Burgh club, with the winners and runner-up in each of the three classes in each monthly medal qualifying to compete in the medal final.

The Breingan medal final produced low scoring in favourable conditions. Ray Smith playing off a handicap of 24 returned a gross 90, some three shots below his handicap to win the Breingan medal with a net 66. Apart from his prize his handicap is reduced by two shots. Graham Crowhurst and Gordon English also both returned net 66 scores on the day, in the first and second class respectively, but neither had qualified as a medal finalist.

The scoring in the Ormond medal final was even lower. Former club chairman Murray Waddell was a clear winner with a net 64. Playing off a handicap of 16, his gross 80 included six pars and one birdie. Retired restaurateur Filippo Madonia also produced a net 64 but was not one of the finalists. A consolation for Filippo is his score has secured a place for him in next year’s final.

The Anderson medal final was won by Alistair Cairns with a net 68, which might have been lower but for an injury. Alistair was one over par at the turn but an elbow injury whilst playing the 15th hole saw him limp home losing four shots to par in the last four holes, finishing eight over par. It was good enough to secure the medal, though it wasn’t the lowest score of the day. Iain Carswell’s net 65 produced that and left him ruing not having qualified as a finalist, but he will be next year.
