Nail bit­ing fin­ish to Oban Ro­tary Club’s Am-Am at Glen­cruit­ten

The Oban Times - - Sport -

THE 32nd Am-Am char­ity golf tour­na­ment, or­gan­ised by Oban Ro­tary Club, saw a nail-bit­ing win and a record raf­fle at Glen­cruit­ten Golf Club on Sun­day.

The raf­fle raised a ‘stun­ning’ £725, which will be do­nated to Mary’s Meals, while the auc­tion made £400 for lo­cal causes, which all adds to the group’s £10,000 fundrais­ing to­tal this year.

Third prize, the An­gus Simp­son Memo­rial Trophy and £100, went to Andy’s Giants, com­posed of J For­grieve, A Camp­bell, D McGill and W Adam, for their score of 91 points.

McFadyens con­trac­tors took sec­ond prize, the Al­lan McDougall Memo­rial Trophy and £120, col­lected by Mal­colm Cullen on be­half of his team mates A Jamieson, S McCuish and F MacKay.

Both McFadyens and a team from Scot­tish Sea Farms came top of the leader board with 96 points, but in the event of a tie the win­ner was de­cided by who played the best last nine holes, which fell by just one point to Scot­tish Sea Farms, com­pris­ing G Car­ney, D MacMil­lan, D MacMil­lan, and I MacMil­lan.

Scott MacMil­lan, an em­ployee of Scot­tish Sea Farms but not a mem­ber of their win­ning team, col­lected the Bank of Scot­land Trophy and a top prize of £200 on be­half of his col­leagues who were not present at the end of the day-long event which started at 7.30am.

In other re­sults, the prizes for near­est the pin went to G Miller, P Mon­teith, K Wother­spoon, F MacKay, K Mackie, and J Camp­bell.

The D& K Laf­ferty’s team of F O’Rourke, P Dunn, M Kelly, C McIntyre won the yel­low ball com­pe­ti­tion, and the top vis­it­ing team went to Munro’s Garage, com­pris­ing C Munro, C Munro, P Wal­ton and R Ber­gant.

Ro­tary Club pres­i­dent Gra­ham Fraser said all 40 mem­bers played their part in or­gan­is­ing the an­nual tour­na­ment, and thanked all those who helped and do­nated money and prizes. ‘Ev­ery­thing went smoothly. The weather was kind. Ev­ery­body was happy.’

Ro­tar­ian and Am-Am stal­wart Iain MacIn­tyre had a spe­cial rea­son to cel­e­brate this year, mak­ing par on the 12th for the first time in his life. He is 72.

The club will now get busy or­gan­is­ing their next event, a sportive around Loch Awe in Septem­ber.
