Despite the unseasonal weather, Glenralloch was in fantastic condition for the first and second of Tarbert Golf Club’s championship last weekend, thanks to the hard work of  greenkeeper Graham Prentice, assisted by John MacNab.

Twelve time champion Archie Black set the bar on Saturday with a fantastic 69 including birdies at the second and third to take the clubhouse lead.

Defending champion Iain Macalister is not going to be giving up his crown easily and also posted a 69 with birdies at the first and third helping his card.

Club Captain Kenny MacFarlane moved into third place on 72. The same players also occupied pole positions in the nett trophy on 59, 63 and 63 respectively.

Sunday saw Kenny move to the top of the leaderboard following his lowest ever score around Glenralloch, his 68 included four birdies.

Second on the day was Bruce MacNab on 73 and John MacNab on 74.

This means an exciting weekend is in prospect with both the championship and nett trophies extremely close affairs.

The senior championship and second round of the John Reid Quaich will also take place over the weekend. The presentation will take place around 3pm on Sunday afternoon when it is hoped a large turnout of members will be present.

Championship results after 36 holes: Kenny MacFarlane 140, Iain Macalister 144, Archie Black 144.

Nett trophy results after 36 holes: Kenny MacFarlane 122, Archie Black 124, Lewis Preston 127.
