A total of 23 teams took to the fairways of Machrihanish Golf Club for the annual September AmAm. The competition involves teams of four playing better ball golf with the best two scores at each hole counting.
It was one of sponsor McFadyen Contractors Ltd’s own teams that won the trophy with a tremendous score of 124 – a mighty 16 under par. Tom Millar led the team; remarkably the second time that Tom has lifted a prestigious AmAm trophy at Machrihanish, having won previously the May AmAm with a different side. He was ably complimented by Robert Borthwick, young Michael McKinlay and Darren McGillivray.
They won by four clear shots from runners up the Stewart brothers, Nigel and Kenny, with David Sinclair and James Todd Jr with an excellent score of 128, 12 under par.
In third and fourth places tied on 129 just a shot further back was the captain’s team of Willie Ross, Cameron McGeachy, Ranald Watson and Graham MacMillan, and the team of John Ramsay, Roy McKinven, Calum MacLean and R Paterson.
In fifth place, completing the prizes was the team of Allan Rattray, Keith Crawford, Robert MacNaughton and David MacNaughton on 10 under par 130.
The club would like to thank the sponsors McFadyens Contractors Ltd for a tremendous day, Campbeltown Bowling Club for hosting the prize-giving and Jennie Dunn for setting the teams off in such good spirit.
