Firm marks milestone with golf tournament
MARINE Harvest employees from all over Scotland gathered in Arisaig for a golf tournament, marking the 50th anniversary of the fish farming firm.
The sun was shining at Traigh golf club as 34 people took part in the stableford competition on Saturday.
It was a clean sweep for the Lochaber staff as David MacGillivray of Glenfinnan was crowned winner with 43 points, closely followed by John MacMillan of Traigh on 42.
Fort William based Billy Glen, head of health and safety for Marine Harvest, was third with 41 points and fourth was John Henderson of Traigh with 36 points.
Not to be outdone, the Lochaber ladies stormed ahead in the competitions. Gillian Clark of Traigh was first with 31, followed by Rosie Curtis of Kilchoan on 23.
John Angus ‘Gillie’ Gillies, harvesting manager at the company’s Mallaig site, organised the event. He said: ‘I could not be happier with the way things went. The weather was a bonus.
‘Everyone was happy with the co- operation of the golf club. Club chairman, Roddy Burgess, and his members were very helpful. The competition was for our staff, customers and suppliers, but members of Traigh also took part.’
Prizes were handed out after a buffet in the nearby Lochailort Inn by Jocky MacRae, a Traigh golf club veteran and former Marine Harvest employee.
