The sun shone all day when Dunaverty Golf Club’s Heidbangers enjoyed an outing to Carradale Golf Club last week.

The group played three rounds, the first two of which were for individual prizes and the third was a hidden pairs round.

The individual score of the hidden pairs round was added to the first two to determine who won the trophy.

Neil Brodie and Sandy Watson both scored 19 points in the first round but Neil took the win by a better last six while Willie Young, on 16, took third prize with a better last six.

Round two was another close finish with Neil to the fore again on 18 points from Colin Hanbidge on 17.

Sandy Watson was next on 16 by virtue of a better last six.

The hidden pairs went to Willie Ralston and Willie Young who scored 33.

Second with 30, were Don Hardman and Neil Brodie, and John Marrison and Bill Brannigan were third with 28.

The final round individual scores resulted in a close finish between Neil and Sandy Watson, both scoring 14 points, but with 37 from the first two rounds, Neil won by two points.

The group thanked greenkeeper Robert Strang for keeping the course in excellent condition.

Result: 1 Neil Brodie 19+18+14=51, 2 Sandy Watson 19+16+14=49, 3 Willie Young 16+13+15=44. Hidden teams: 1 Willie Ralston and Willie Young 33, 2 Don Hardman and Neil Brodie 30, 3 John Marrison and Bill Brannigan 28.
