Buildbase Open 2019

News Posted: 27th August 2019

This past saturday seen the most popular fixture on our yearly calendar take place. The Buildbase Open is always a favourite for the players, but it also gives us a chance to raise money for a good cause. This year it was for the MRI Scanner Appeal.

Approximately £1800 has been raised in a great effort by everyone involved. 

75 golfers took to the course on an excellent day, with the weather warm, and no rain in sight, just the smell of the BBQ at the top of the hill to guide players in. 






The spot prize winners were as follows. 

Colin Morrison won 'Nearest the Pin' at the 2nd hole, with it being only 10 foot away, but made a howling clanger as he accidentally picked up his ball and had forgotten to mark it, costing him a penalty shot. 

'Nearest the pin' at 12th was won by Bruce Crossan, at 8 foot. 

'Nearest the pin in 2' at the 10th was won by Kieren Fraser, at a 7ft 6". 

Longest drive, and most 'Tyoch' award was won by Grant Wiseman. A thinned driver under the wind got the Uglier brother the prize on the day. 



3rd Nett - Abdelhaq Zaoui (68)

2nd Nett - Dougie MacDonald (68)

1st Nett - Angus Ward (67)

A very fitting winner of the Nett competition as Angus is a member of the MRI scanner Appeal committee and was involved in the fundraising during the competition this past saturday. 



3rd Scratch - Lee Carter (75)

2nd Scratch - George Leask (75)

1st Scratch - Kieren Fraser (71)

A well deserved Victory for Kieren fraser as he played an excellent round with very few mistakes. Great return to form for the former club champion. 





The prize for Last place isn't quite what it seems, as its the Last place of players who completed their round. Leighton Flaws was the unfortunate recipient, but should be applauded for seeing it through. As a relative beginner to the competition scene, it showed good character, to finish the round and not head to the beer tent early.

Mens Captain, Ramsay Hogg said a few words at the prize giving - "A special thanks to Graham and Harold from Buildbase for organising this excellent event, along with their staff for helping with the BBQ and keeping the Bath full of Beer. Kay who had a very busy time on the bar, and those members who took turns to assist when the Bar was very busy. 

Finally a thanks to Allyn Sutherland and his 'boys' for their massive amount of work they put onto the course, especially in the morning before the event. A massive asset to the club, and is doing a great job"
