Jack McDonald tied for the best Scratch points total. Fergus Brown 40, Jamie O'Connor 41, and Ruaridh McKenzie 40, all picked up Handicap prizes. Special mention must be made of 3 young Boys. Freddie Holt, Caelan Pugh and Cameron McKey who all played for West Links although none of them held a CONGU Handicap. They hold only CONGU Club handicaps of 45, 37 and 50 respectively. Having to play off the maximum handicap of 28 from the yellow tees, they scored 25, 22 and 21 points respectively. Freddie's score contributed to their Team's winning total against Musselburgh. The CSS for both Boys and Girls was CSS=SSS, equal to 36 Stableford points. The 2 extra strokes for Competition Handicap Allowance do not count for Handicap purposes.
