The Medal Final on 28th Sept was played in conditions that les called "borderline" in his early morning course message. It was very wet underfoot, but two players who've had consistently good performances all year managed the conditions better than the rest. The CSS of 69 reflected the difficulty on the day.
In each Monthly Medal from April to September, the top 2 in division 1 (Handicaps 0-14) and the top 2 in division 2 (Handicap 15 to 28) qualify to play in the Medal Final. The tankards that were won each month and in the final used to be prized trophies, but times have changed, and the winners now receive golf vouchers.
Andy Boyle won the Medal Final by four shots with a nett 67, bringing his handicap down a further shot to 12. Matt Robinson came second with a nett 71.
Gary Johnstone won the subsidiary competition with a gross 75, nett 69.
