Tar­bert golf club pretty in pink

Argyllshire Advertiser - - SPORT -

A BUSY week­end at Glen­ral­loch kicked off last Satur­day with the sec­ond round of the Archie MacNab Me­mo­rial Cup.

A tightly bunched group of five play­ers all had a chance to win this sought-af­ter tro­phy and, de­spite the hor­ren­dous con­di­tions, with con­tin­u­ous rain and wind, they bat­tled it out.

Gor­don McCaf­fery scored well to fin­ish in third place on 71 points, while vice-pres­i­dent Chris Smyth took sec­ond place with 72 points, hav­ing played par­tic­u­larly well on the back nine.

The over­all win­ner was Bruce MacNab, who shot a 70 for 37 points on the day and a to­tal of 74. Iain Ma­cal­is­ter who was un­able to play in the first round, had the sec­ond best score on the day with 36 points but took the magic two pot with chipin birdies at both the third and eighth holes. Vice-pres­i­dent Smyth pre­sented the tro­phy to a de­lighted Bruce, who thanked the hard­core mem­bers for turn­ing out on such a hor­ri­ble day.

On Sunday, the ladies sec­tion ran the mixed dou­bles breast cancer aware­ness open with a healthy num­ber of teams tak­ing part and rais­ing a fan­tas­tic £406 in the process. Lochgilp­head hus­band and wife team Jim and Ele Hunter took first prize with a net score of 61.5 fol­lowed by Bill and Rona Young on net 64. Com­ing in third was Ryan McG­lynn and Donna McKel­lar on 68.5.

Lady cap­tain Rae Bleasby thanked all who took part and was grate­ful for all the do­na­tions and prizes re­ceived.

This Satur­day the Tar­bert Golf Club Am Am takes place with tee times cur­rently still avail­able.
