The weather throughout the week was strong winds and blustery showers.

In the morning foursomes Cameron Gray (Kirkcudbright) and Finlay Copeland (D&G) combined well to win by 1 hole after a superb 3 wood by Cameron to the centre of the last green while Callum McMillan (Kirkcudbright) unfortunately did not gel with his partner and lost by 8 and 6. (more…)
