Allan Smith junior won the first class of the March medal competition at Rothesay Golf Club on Sunday.

Smith’s three-over-par 72 gave him a net score of 67 and a seven-shot margin of victory over Craig Charker on 74 (80-6).

The second class medal was won by Ron Cuthbertson, who went some way towards making up for his disappointment in just missing out on the Winter League singles title the previous weekend with a net 71 (85-14), six shots ahead of runner-up Jimmy Ewing.

Stuart Strathie matched the lowest score of the day when he posted a net 67 (84-17) to take the third class honours.

This weekend features the Gordon McKinley singles stableford on Saturday and the subscription medal on Sunday.
