Cardwell Garden Centre Braehead Open

The Braehead Open sponsored by Cardwell Garden Centre was held 5th to 7th October.

Part of the Scottish Goldline Tour, and due to the success of previous years, the competition drew 32 teams playing out a highly competitive weekends curling , all vying for one of the thirteen prizes on offer as well as qualifying for tour points and the coveted Braehead Open trophy.

Many of the Scottish performance squad teams were in evidence as well a whole host of medal winners at national and international level competing against teams from The Netherlands, Russia and Norway and even a team made up from Braehead’s Virtual Club who acquitted themselves well against top class opposition.

Come Sunday afternoon and the final took place between teams led by Hannah Fleming and Murray Young with Hannah triumphing 8 shots to 4 in a tight final that went to the wire.

Prizes were handed to all the successful teams by Bruce Harley, Leisure Manager at Braehead and the trophy presented to Hannah and her team of Abi Brown, Lauren Gray and Jennifer Dodds by Cardwell Garden Centre Director Eric Gallagher. 

Now in its eighth year the Braehead Open has become a firm fixture in the curling calendar and teams already have their entries in for next year and so it was to the delight of the watching crowd that Mr Gallagher announced the continued sponsorship of Cardwell Garden Centre.
