Mach Dunes winter open was a sell-out
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.
