Rain fails to ruin golf club’s spirit
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.
