John Duff leads Brimmond Bistro Order of 

Merit by 210pt, hot favourite for £125 prize

Newmachar amateur John Duff's 25pt award for finishing joint eighth in yesterday's North-east Golfers' Alliance fixture at windy Inverallochy enabled him to boost his lead to a massive 210pt  in the scratch Order of Merit, sponsored by Craibstone Golf Club's Brimmond Bistro, writes Colin Farquharson.
Duff, pictured left, with 700pt in the bag already, is a hot favourite to win the £125 first prize (as an amateur voucher) which will go to the player with the most scratch Order of Merit points at the conclusion of the second round of the Alliance championship at Craibstone on March 18.
Paul Lawrie is lying second with 490pt after winning five times out of six appearances but he does not expect to play in any Alliance events in the second half of the season because of his European Tour commitments.
Royal Aberdeen pro Joel Hopwood moved up to third on 485 after collecting 80pt for third place at Inverallochy.
Craibstone teaching pro Lee Vannet has jumped up to fourth place on 387 with the 100pt that goes to scratch competition winners - but he still has 313pt to make up on leader Duff over the last 10 fixtures of the 2014-2015 Alliance season.
The runner-up in the Brimmond Bistro scratch order of merit will earn £70 and the third-placed finisher come March 18 will win £50.

The clubhouse at Craibstone Golf Course forms the hub of all activities at the course.

No clubhouse would be complete without a restaurant and Craibstone is no different; the Brimmond Bistro serves fresh, wholesome food prepared by our experienced chef. The next time you visit Craibstone be sure to explore the clubhouse and see all these facilities for yourself. The Brimmond Bistro, open 9.30am to 4pm daily, is open to non-members of the golf club. Drop in by when you feel like it a cup of tea/coffee and a scone!
