At the start of the pandemic in March we took the decision to make online access to our news free of charge by taking down our paywall. At a time where accurate information about Covid-19 was vital to our community, this was the right decision – even though it meant a drop in our income. In order to help safeguard the future of our journalism, the time has now come to reinstate our paywall.

However, rest assured that access to all Covid related news will still remain free.

To access all other news will require a subscription, as it did pre-pandemic.

The good news is that for the whole of December we will be running a special discounted offer to get 3 months access for the price of one month. Thank you for supporting us during this incredibly challenging time.

Dunaverty Golf Club members enjoyed a mild day with light breezes when competing in their October medal last Saturday.

Keith Crawford, playing with Alex Arkell and Danny Halliday, covered the first nine holes in an excellent 33 strokes to Danny’s 40 and Alex’s 41.

The back nine was a different story with Keith slipping to 38 and Alex improving to 38 with both achieving nett 66s but, with a better inward half on handicap, Alex was the clubhouse leader at this stage.

Two groups later, Ross Sinclair set about chasing the leaders by reaching the turn in 34 strokes and then posted a superb 33 on the way back to finish on 67, giving him not only the best scratch score of the day but, with his handicap of five, he turned in a nett 62 to take the win. Three strokes covered the places from second to twelfth.

Results: 1 Ross Sinclair 67-5=62, 2 Alex Arkell 79-13=66 (bih), 3 Keith Crawford 71-5=66, 4 John Docherty 75-8=67 (bih), 5 Bill Brannigan 80-13=67 (bih), 6 Robert Coffield 77-10=67 (bih).
