AL­MOST 70 men braved the weather to com­pete in Dal­mally Golf Club’s 2016 Gents Open.

Some of the 68 com­peti­tors came from as far afield as Aberdeen, the Black Isle and Glas­gow, but it was the lo­cals that came out on top.

Cameron Milne, Glen­cruit­ten, won the Dal­mally Open Scratch event and Alan McPhee, Glen­cruit­ten, won the Archie McIn­tyre Tro­phy.

Near­est the pin was, at the first: David Howie, Taynuilt; at the third: Andy Ron­ald, Taynuilt; at the fifth: Cameron Milne, Glen­cruit­ten; and at the sev­enth: mark Grant, Taynuilt.

Also tak­ing place this week­end was the Dal­mally In­ter­na­tional Black Pud­ding Com­pe­ti­tion - prob­a­bly a first for the club and, per­haps, Scot­tish golf. Spon­sored by Grants of Taynuilt, en­trants had to iden­tify Scot­tish, Ir­ish and English pud­dings. The win­ner was Billy Ross from Ar­rochar who plays at Dal­mally. Sun­day was also a real fam­ily event with three gen­er­a­tions of McKech­nies out bat­tling against the el­e­ments – John, Gra­ham and Arik. Arik, 16, fol­lowed in his grand­fa­ther’s foot­steps and won the Ralph Boon Cup last week at the Gents Out­ing to Du­naverty.
