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.
We value our content and access to our full site is only available on subscription. Your subscription entitles you to 7-day-a-week access to our website, plus a full digital copy of that week’s paper to read on your pc/mac or mobile device In addition your subscription includes access to digital archive copies from 2006 onwards.
The wind and rain which blighted play the previous week took a break for Dunaverty Golf Club’s delayed January medal competition last Saturday.
A dry, mild and calm day helped the participants produce some good scores.
Whilst the winner was out on his own, the next five places were close with four competitors returning the same score and placings having to be decided on better inward halves.
Kieran McGeachy earned himself a cut in his handicap by returning an excellent nett 58 to win on the day. He was followed closely by the consistent Bobby Dalziel with a nett 62.
The next four all carded nett 64s and had to be separated by their inward scores with one place being decided on the last six holes.
Ross Sinclair had the best scratch score with a 67.
Result: 1 Kieran McGeachy 84-26=58, 2 Bobby Dalziel 72-10=62, 3 Roddy MacDonald 70-6=64 (best last six), 4 Ross Sinclair 67-3=64 (bih), 5 Robert Coffield 73-9=64 (bih), 6 Sandy Watson 75-11=64.
