PING Scottish Mixed Championship
The husband-and-wife pairing of Martin and May Britovsek savoured their ‘best Monday ever’ after seeing off competition from across the country to win the inaugural PING Scottish Mixed Championship at glorious Gleneagles.
On a beautiful day in Perthshire, enjoyed by 40 club pairings, the East Kilbride duo won a ‘final like no other’ as the unique free-to-enter national event for club members came to a fitting conclusion over the superb Queen’s Course.
The exciting new competition saw male and female golfers of all ages and abilities come together at local level from clubs across the country, celebrating Scottish Golf’s new three-year partnership with PING, with great prizes on offer for all finalists.
Clubs will once again be invited to host a qualifying event next season with the chance for two of their members to win a place in the 2018 final.
Club Handicap Championship
The Craibstone pairing of John Borthwick and Ian Still were left virtually speechless after overcoming the windy weather to be crowned Scottish Club Handicap winners for 2017.
Each club in Scotland was invited to host a local qualifying event for its members through an existing competition this season, with the two players topping the leaderboard (nett scores) going onto represent their club at one of five Regional Finals that took place in August and September.
The Scottish Club Handicap Championship has been the country’s biggest participation event since its launch in 1999, with around 20,000 club members taking part in local qualifying each year.
Belhaven Captains & Secretaries Championship
Highland club Carrbridge celebrated after the pairing of Scott Henderson and Charlie MacDonald took the coveted Belhaven Captains & Secretaries Championship title in glorious conditions at Elie.
The duo combined perfectly to record a six-under par better-ball net score of 64, edging out nearest challengers Hayston and Cruden Bay by a single shot to take the silverware to Carrbridge for the first time.
With 40 clubs from across Scotland taking part in the final, having won through from five regional heats, competition was fierce for bragging rights among the captains and secretaries fraternity.
Each club in Scotland is invited to take part in the championship on an annual basis, with five regional qualifying events to choose from, running from May through to August.
