A dry, crisp and windy day ensured a close game at Dunaverty’s Christmas competition.

One stroke separated first and second. Eight handicapper David Hanley was in fine form covering the front nine in 37 strokes, despite having five bogeys in the process, but upped his game on the back nine by recording 35.

Sandy Watson proved that age is no barrier by producing an excellent scratch score of 74 and pipped David by one stroke, on handicap, to secure the win.

Result: 1 Sandy Watson 74-11=63, 2 David Hanley 72-8=64, 3 Alistair McConnachie 76-10=66(bih) 4 John McKinlay 75-9=66, 5 Malcolm Ronald 85-18=67(bih), 6 Danny Halliday 84-17=67.
David had the best scratch score of 72 and the CSS was 64.

This the first half of a combined competition involving the Christmas and New Year matches with the total of the two determining the winner.

The New Year event has an added interest for the competitors as the Taylor family have donated a beautiful tankard in memory of past captain, former club champion and highly respected member Donald Taylor.

Every player will be doing their utmost to be the first to win this trophy.

The postponed December medal will be held tomorrow, Saturday with one ballot time from 9.30am to 10am.
