Area Youths Championship
The Area Youths Championship took place at Ralston on Sunday 10th September. The course was well presented and withstood the rain well during the morning round. During the afternoon the rain became heavier and various greens flooded. With no prospect of the rain easing for several hours the second round had to be abandoned before any of the players had completed their round.
The results of the first round determined the results of the competition. A measure of the trying nature of the conditions can be seen from the CSS being reduction only and even wth a CSS of 73 no player managed to score below his handicap.
The individual winner was Stuart Cameron of Elderslie with a 73. The runner up on 74 was the 2015 winner was Dominic Dougan of Drumpellier. Full scores may be viewed here
