A smaller field than normal played in today's June Medal at Gourock GC, partly due to it's location and partly due to the West Vets match at Kilmacolm, which tied up some of the RLCGA players 
Sadly, the weather forecast didn't get it right today.... dry in the morning and showers in the afternoon and evening it said. So we had showers and a fair breeze in the morning, drier in the afternoon and torrential rain at night time when the pesky midges came out to play ! 

Maureen Woodhead - Winner of June Medal and Division 1
The difficult conditions were reflected in the scores, however local player Maureen Woodhead returned an impressive gross 84, nett 75 to win Division 1 and the Medal with Emma Kennedy (Paisley) - pictured below winning the Scratch with an 83.

Emma Kennedy - Scratch Winner

Maureen Neilson - Winner of Division 2

Maureen Neilson, from nearby Greenock Golf Club, was the winner of division 2 handicap section with a gross 93, net 79. It must be 'Mo's' new cataract free eyes that made all the difference.

Even though we didn't enjoy the best of weather, the views when the sky did clear a bit were amazing and the view from the 18th tee is fantastic....playing it is another matter !
