Jim McMacken was the big winner at the Niagara-on-the-Lake Golf Club’s first Men’s Night competition of the season last week.

The steady lefty took home one of the $25 gross skins prizes (with a birdie on #7), had the seniors longest drive and had the best low-gross score of the day, shooting a 1-over 37.

Other winners were: gross skins – Jeff Jacques and Dragan Racic; closest to the pin – Mark Derbyshire (#1), Bill Jenkins (#4), Jeff Jacques (#6) and David Gagne (#9). John Wiens won the “junior” longest drive.

In the team points competition, using the Stableford scoring system, Peter Falconer took the “A” flight with 22 points, while Bill Baitinger, Gerry Shelly, Bill Garriock and David Gagne shared “B” flight honours with 21 points.

The popular 50/50 draw’s record $205 prize was won by Rai Lauge.

On Tuesday, the men’s WOOFs league shotgun kickoff was rained out. League play will resume next Tuesday, so long as the weather co-operates, said convener Bill Katrynuk.
