Seniors' success for Ian Dickson and Ronald Comber

Gullane’s Ian Dickson and Ronald Comber of Deer Park claimed the top prizes up for grabs in the Lothians Seniors Championship at Ratho Park.

In an event that saw 110 players tee up in testing conditions due to a wind that strengthened over the course of the day, Dickson carded a scratch 72 to land the R.M. Lees Trophy.

Dickson, a member of Mortonhall’s double Dispatch Trophy-winning side in 2018 and 2019, also secured a place in the Lothians team for the Scottish Senior Championships later in the year.

Cromer, who plays off 16, carded a net 68 and pipped Royal Musselburgh’s William Gilfillan for the prize by virtue of a better inward half.

At the other end of the age ladder, qualifying for the GolfFit Lothians Junior Championship takes place on Sunday at The Braids.
