Tarbert Golf Club’s course was in immaculate condition for the second round of the President’s Cup and first round of the John Reid Quaich last weekend.

Iain Macalister was on top form on Saturday with four birdies in his round on his way to a 70 to take first place.

The in-form Bruce McLean was second on 73 and Bruce MacNab was third on 74 (bih).

In the John Reid Quaich, Bruce McLean holds the first round lead on 60 nett, followed by Iain Macalister on 63 and Iain Johnstone senior on 64, while there were magic twos from Duncan Johnstone and Iain Macalister.

Braving the elements on Sunday, the ladies took part in the May Stableford with Rona Young scoring a very impressive 41 points to take first place. Sheena Ferguson was next on 35 with Helen Samborek and Georgie Dickson on 31.

This weekend has medals for both the ladies and gents, with the Harbour Gallery Gents’ Open taking place the following Saturday, June 5. Bookings can be made via the SGU app.

The club’s junior lessons continue to thrive with club captain Kenny MacFarlane delighted with the response. Anyone wishing to enrol should get in touch with Kenny.
