Only four points covered the top six places during Dunaverty’s Heidbangers’ Gone But Not Forgotten competition.

The contest, in memory of members who have passed on over the last 16 years, was held in warm, dry but very windy conditions.

23 players took part and the scoring was very close.

Sandy Watson, Lee Mathieson and Bill Brannigan led on the outward nine with each scoring 19 points followed by Robert Allan and Alex Roxburgh both on 18.

Alex produced the best back nine score of 20 points to come through and win the event.

Robert also had a good back nine of 19 to take second place.

His mother, Jean Kelly, provided a box of Titleist golf balls for nearest the pin with the second shot to the 18th green and this was won by Lee Mathieson.

The trophy and a bottle of whisky for the winner was sponsored by Robert.

Result: 1 Alex Roxburgh 38 points, 2 Robert Allan 37 bih, 3 Bill Brannigan 37, 4 Ken MacMillan 36, 5 Mark Eagers 35, 6 Pete Garrett 34.
