Smooth-swinging senior Jim McMacken schooled the field and shot an even-par 36 to win low gross honours in the Niagara-on-the-Lake Golf Club’s men’s league play last Thursday.

He also was closest to the hole on #9 and birdied it to win a gross skin.

Ross Smith was the Stableford scoring winner, with 21 points.

Other winners were: Dave Anthony (closest to the 150 marker on #1), Jack Hanna (longest putt #2), Zach Luis (longest drive #3) and Josh D’Agostino (closest to the hole #4).

Other gross skins went Devon Neudorf and Michael Sanders for birdies on #1 and #5 respectively.
Net skins of $80 each were won by John Schmidt (#3) and Sanders (#5).

Tuesday’s torrential rains washed out the weekly women’s leagues as the course was closed for part of the day.

The men’s WOOFs league was able to tee off later and Jim Rye scored the low gross honours with a 3-over 39. Charlie Rate was low net with 33.

Peter Falconer’s birdie on #6 won the hidden hole and Ted Wiens was closest to the hole on #4.
