Solicitors Trophy Champion 2016

Exciting finish to one of the Club's top events. Congratulations to Matthew Battensby on his win of the solicitors trophy on Sunday 25th September. When Matthew birdied the first, Ali Massie knew he'd have a tough morning ahead. An eagle on the 9th confirmed it. Matthew was 2 up at the turn. Ali was 5 down after the 13th but pulled a couple back on 14 and 15. On the 16th tee, 3 down with 3 to play, Matthew mopped it up on the 16th green, wining 4 and 2.

Ali states "I was outclassed and outplayed by a much more competent golfer. No complaints about the winner. Matthew totally deserved the trophy. Very well played Matthew, and I hope to meet up with you next year when I hope I can reverse the result. I'll just finish off by adding en route to the final, I played absolute gentlemen opponents. Great sportsmanship throughout. I look forward to competing again next year"

Thanks Ali

Gordon Pennant League Success

Huge congratulations to the Inverurie Golf Club Gents Pennant Team winning the Gordon Pennant League this season.

A team representative states “This year was a great season with us going through the season unbeaten with 4 wins and 1 draw, especially with only 2 of the 5 results at home this year. The league came down to the final game of the season, away at Newburgh, with us having to secure a win to secure the title and gain promotion back into league 1 for next season. Thankfully we managed to pull together a team last minute, after the league had initially told us we'd already won the league, with the team winning with a resounding 4-0, with Mark & Steven’s final game being played in the dark for the final 3 holes!

Results

Drew 2-2 away at Alford

Won 3-1 home to Dunecht house

Won 2.5-1.5 away to Insch

Won 3-1 at home to Westhill

Won 4-0 away to Newburgh

This year’s squad included:

Blair McGunnigle, Cameron Glennie (Captain), Mark Ingram, Steven Reid Derek Green, Richard Davidson, Neil McIntosh, Daniel Grant, Graeme Farquharson, Calum Morrison, Jason Gray, Owen Watt, Stewart Hay Leigh McIntosh, Darren Robbie

A number of team representatives will attend this year’s Dinner on the 21st October at Craibstone Golf Club to collect the trophy. Have a great night!! and Well Done!
