Rain fails to ruin golf club’s spirit

Campbeltown Courier - - SPORT -

LOCHGILP­HEAD Golf Club got in the swing of things last week­end as mem­bers donned their golf-themed fancy dress.

The TW Scaf­fold­ing Tri Am, spon­sored by Si­mon Taylor and Mitchell Wishart of Taylor & Wishart Scaf­fold­ing, is a fun day com­pe­ti­tion that ends with an evening dance.

De­spite be­ing one of the wettest days any­one has played on Lochgilp­head golf course, 19 teams of three com­peted. But not all could face the weather to com­plete their round. With a nett 46, it was the ladies’ team, The Birdies, who per­se­vered through the wind and the rain to claim the £300 cash prize.

Dan­nies Tran­nies were not far be­hind with a nett 49, tak­ing the £200 sec­ond place prize and Three Dram Ea­gles com­ing in hot on their heels with a nett 50 to take third place and £100.

The best-dressed and best­named teams both re­ceived £60 for their ef­forts and the play­ers who came near­est to the pin and had the long­est drive won £30 each.

Mem­bers of the club would like to thank ev­ery­one for com­ing with spe­cial thanks to T&W Scaf­fold­ing for host­ing the event and Tam­sin and Si­mon Taylor’s fam­ily for as­sist­ing. Re­sults: 1 The Birdies - Donna McKel­lar, Fiona McLeod and Ele Hunter; 2 Dan­nies Tran­nies - Roddy McDon­ald, Adrian An­gus and Ross Sin­clair; 3 Three Dram Ea­gles - Kenny Craw­ford, Brian Craw­ford and Mick Bat­tle. Near­est the pin - W Dougall; Long­est drive - Ryan McG­lynn; Best dressed team - Team Fran­cis; Best name Draw­shank Re­demp­tion.
