Turnhouse stars shine at Stephen Gallacher Finals

Have your say

TURNHOUSE players figured prominently as the curtain came down on another successful season for the Stephen Gallacher Foundation.

With the man himself in attendance, the ‘Race to Dunbar’ Finals Day took part in tough conditions on the East Lothian coast as winds gusted up to 45mph.

That being the case, a best scratch score of 78 from Turnhouse teenager Mark Napier was a decent effort as he won by a shot from Liberton’s Kieran Cantley, with Napier’s club-mate, Jack McVey, two shots further back in third.

In the handicap section, top spot went to the Glen’s Greig Govenlock, the five-handicapper carding a net 76 to win by five shots from another Turnhouse player, Leigh Lawson, and Ratho Park 13-handicapper Aaron Hastings.

The players participating had all qualified for the end-of-season finale by finishing in the top ten of the various Order of Merits.

“Many thanks to all at Dunbar Golf Club for their help in organising the event and looking after us all so well on the day,” said Scott Knowles, the Stephen Gallacher Foundation manager.
