Lochgilphe­ad Golf Club enjoys competitio­ns galore


Saturday April 17 saw Lochgilphe­ad Golf Club gents compete for the Booker Trophy.

The course was in great condition but the speed of the greens made it tricky for some.

Sandy Crawford had the measure of them though, winning with a nett 65, beating Alex MacAulay by three strokes.

The ladies played their first strokeplay competitio­n as they took to the course for the April Medal. This format suited Donna McKellar, who returned a nett score of 69, beating Kirsty Flanagan by two strokes.

Ladies and gents played round one of their respective charity cups on Sunday April 18. Simon Taylor won the gents with a nett 65, beating Neil McDonald on a count back. Kathleen Young won the ladies with 20 points, beating Margaret MacKinnon by three strokes.

The clubhouse remains closed, with no immediate plans to re-open, resulting in competitio­ns with a subsequent social event being postponed.

Hopefully it won’t be too long until these can be re-scheduled.
