The unrelenting rain over the course of the weekend meant that our planned Adult/Child Pairs event had to be modified. The Devenick Course at PLGC was closed due to the flooding so we headed under-cover to the Golf Centre’s Range Bays and were able to play a Texas Scramble utilising the Top Tracer Range technology.
Everyone enjoy the format and it was great to get a fun competition despite the continuous downpours.
In the end, we had a tie for first place with some very strong performances right through the field. Darren & Aiden Watson teamed with Kyle & Paul Marshall scored 27.2 (33 less 5.8 team handicap) for 9 holes alongside the Isla & Kevin Reid team with Lois & Kevin Whicher on the same score (35 less 7.8 team handicap). There was also a tie for 3rd position with Brooke & Craig Sinclair teamed with Eve & Trevor Ironside scoring 28 (36 less team handicap of 8) with Amy & Ross Blackadder teamed with Sam Allan (33 less team handicap of 5).
1st = 27.2 Darren & Aiden Watson teamed with Kyle & Paul Marshall and Isla & Kevin Reid team with Lois & Kevin Whicher
3rd = 28 Brooke & Craig Sinclair teamed with Eve & Trevor Ironside and Amy & Ross Blackadder teamed with Sam Allan
5th = 28.4 Ruby & Ian Watt with Zack & Phil Don and Ben & Willam Middler with Harris & Scott Allan

8th 30.6 Fred & Sandy Hutchison with Harry & Phil Smith
9th 30.8 Fraser & Kirsty Ironside with Michael & Andrew Myron-Petrie
10th 31.6 Ollie & John Robertson with Phil Sinclair
All in all it was a successful event that went down well with everyone involved. We’ll run a similar Top Tracer Range event in December 15th to close of the 2019 season/year!
