Satur­day Au­gust 26, Texas scram­ble and bar­be­cue. A fine af­ter­noon at last for the post­poned Texas scram­ble en­sured a fun day for play­ers and spec­ta­tors alike. A good turnout of play­ers and sup­port­ers joined in the 15-hole for­mat which meant that the play­ers could make straight for the bar­be­cue with­out hav­ing to en­dure the fi­nal three holes on an empty and de­mand­ing stom­ach. There was plenty of fun for all and the young ones in par­tic­u­lar had a whale of a time knock­ing golf balls up and down the first fair­way while the mums, dads and the rest en­joyed a con­vivial af­ter­noon in the sun­shine.

Con­grat­u­la­tions to Team Blair who, amid all the mer­ry­mak­ing, played some very de­cent golf to win the scram­ble with a score well un­der par for the 15 holes played. Or­gan­is­ers said a huge thanks to all who at­tended and to all those who worked so hard to or­gan­ise and run the event and to Andy Mar­tin for his gen­er­ous spon­sor­ship of prizes.

Ar­ran Golfers’ As­so­ci­a­tion

Satur­day Au­gust 26, AGA fi­nal. Todd Jame­son of Lam­lash Golf Club beat eight-times cham­pion, Ewan McKin­non of Cor­rie Golf Club in a highly en­ter­tain­ing fi­nal full of twists and turns at Brod­ick Golf Club.

Todd’s one un­der par front nine put him three up only for Ewan to win 11, 12 and 13 to square the match. Todd won 14 and 15 to go two up, then holed a down­hill 20ft putt at 16 for a cru­cial half. Fol­low­ing a drive to the edge of the green at 17, Ewan birdied the hole to give him­self a glim­mer of hope, but Todd ap­peared nerve­less as he holed his putt to halve the hole for a 2 and 1 vic­tory. Both play­ers are to be con­grat­u­lated on their ex­em­plary sports­man­ship through­out in what will no doubt turn out to be the first of many fi­nals in which they play against each other.

Fix­tures: Sun­day Septem­ber 3, AGA au­tumn hand­i­cap at Cor­rie Golf Club, late en­tries ac­cepted. Satur­day Septem­ber 9, Grouse four­somes at Lam­lash Golf Club at 1pm.

El­iz­a­beth Kelso, El­lie Jones, Jenni Turn­bull and Ca­role Ste­wart rep­re­sented Ar­ran at the SWI na­tional fi­nals at the Hirsel Golf Club in Mon­day Au­gust 28 in Cold­stream. They looked very smart in the Shisk­ine Kis­cadale team out­fits which even El­lie, from Lam­lash, was pleased to wear!

David and Linda Blair and their two sons made up Team Blair who won the Whit­ing Bay Texas scram­ble with a score well un­der par.
