A Carradale woman took the title after a ‘magnificent’ 72 players turned out to support Tarbert Golf Club’s TT100 Nancy Glen Open.

Lynsay McGeachy, who scored 40 points in the Stableford competition, won the first prize of £100.

For many, taking part was not about winning a prize but simply paying their respects to the crew of the Nancy Glen.

A spokesperson said: ‘The club is extremely grateful to everyone who gave their support in any way, from Graham and his helpers on the course, to Sheena and the girls in the kitchen and bar for doing an outstanding job keeping everyone fed and watered, and John and Russell for collating all the scores and selling raffle tickets.

‘Thanks also to the Inveraray and Lochgilphead boys for their support both on and off the course.’

Angus MacFarlane took second place on 39, Ally Provan was 3rd with 38, Peter Sinclair was 4th with 37 bih, Allan Weir, on 37, was 5th, Duncan Litster 37 wih was 6th, Kenny MacFarlane was 7th with 35 bih and Eric Capocci 8th also with 35.

Ladies’ longest drive at the 2nd was Catherine Reid, gents’ longest drive at the 18th was Peter McLean Jr, closest to the pin in two at the 6th was Stephen Colligan, and closest to the pin at the 8th was Iain MacArthur.

In his closing remarks captain Chris Smyth thanked the many people who did all they could to make the day such a success, thanking the ‘non golfers’ for taking part and hoping that they may return to play more often.

He announced the day’s winners and Heather Anderson, of sponsors Argyll Wealth Consultants Ltd, handed out the prizes.

The competition raised £2,500 for the Nancy Glen fund.
