75 players from 16 clubs across Scotland and northern England competed in the annual Golf Week.

 Camperdown, Downfield and Whickham Golf Clubs were again well represented and, along with players from local clubs and elsewhere, enjoyed good playing conditions despite mixed weather throughout the week. The excellent scoring by some competitors in the qualifying rounds and in the consolation tournaments on Wednesday to Friday was testament to the condition of the course and the greens, which were widely praised by all our visitors.

The Scratch Champion was Graeme Morrison (Camperdown) who defeated Darren McCaig (Whickham) in a closely fought final.

In the Scratch - 10 Handicap Final Steve Cook (Downfield) was victorious against Mark Lundberg (Craigie Hill) 

The 11 - 24 Handicap Final was between two King James V1 members with Willie Leaver winning the trophy by defeating Charlie Scrim.
