Mach Dunes win­ter open was a sell-out

Campbeltown Courier - - SPORT -

Of­fi­cials at a Kin­tyre golf club thought hold­ing a De­cem­ber open was a ‘daft’ idea. The plan proved its pop­u­lar­ity last Satur­day when 55 golfers were tempted onto the links at Machri­han­ish Dunes. A Mach Dunes spokesper­son said: ‘In truth we could have sold out this event twice over, but we were forced to cap it due to the lack of avail­able day­light. ‘Near­est the pin prizes were won by Ross Sin­clair and Craw­ford Kil­patrick, and the prize for best Christ­mas ap­parel was won by Jamie Camp­bell, who not only sported a fes­tive hat and socks, but also a truly hi­lar­i­ous pair of trousers. The 18-hole sta­ble­ford com­pe­ti­tion was won by Jonathan Bruce with a to­tal of 41 points. ‘Many thanks to Lorna, Jock and An­drew for all their hard work in the golf house, to Se­bas­tian for com­ing in to help set up the course and to Jamie Robert­son for check­ing and pro­cess­ing the cards. ‘Most of all, we would like to thank our friends at Spring­bank dis­tillery for do­nat­ing some ex­cel­lent prizes which were re­ally ap­pre­ci­ated by the win­ners.’ Full Re­sults: 1 Jonathan Bruce 41, 2 Craig Ram­say 39, 3 Colin Spiers 39, 4 Iain Lo­gan 38.
