Stranraer Golf Club
In gloriously sunny conditions at Creachmore on Sunday 18th June, Lanarkshire retained their title as SGL Boys Area Team Champions. This hard faught defence went right to the wire as the margin of victory could not have been closer. A single shot was all that separated them from Dumbartonshire at the end of a superb days golf. The quartet of Lewis Irvine, Keiren McAllister, Greg Dalziel and Scott Thomson secured the victory in glorious conditions on the south west coast. Stranraer was in magnificent conditrion for all 64 participants from the 16 Areas of Scotland.
After the morning foursomes only three shots separated the top four teams with Irvine and Dalziel recording a very impressive three under par 67. Their individual 75's in the afternoon accompanied by McAllisters counting 73 saw them win by the most slender of margins from Dumbartonshire with Fife edging out Renfrewshire to third place.
Aidan O'Hagan (Glasgow) was awarded the Niagara Cup for the best individual afternoon round with a 69 after countback. Aidan earlier in the week had also secured the Scottish Schools title.
All competitors remarked on the superb conditions and welcome that was afforded to everyone and hopefully this will see a return in the near future.
Thanks to the assistance of mother nature Stranraer and the Wigtownshire area's beauty was broadcast to a wide audience which can only benefit everyone
