Golfers from Lochgilphead, Inveraray and Old Ranfurly gathered at Glenralloch last Saturday to compete in Tarbert Golf Club’s Harbour Gallery Open.

Inveraray’s David Robertson, a talented all-round sportsman, was in sparkling form with a level par outward nine of 33 which included two birdies. His inward nine of 37 gave him a total of 70-11 for nett 59 to take first place.

Tarbert players Iain Macalister, 63 nett, and James Smyth, 64 nett, took second and third places respectively with regular open visitor Peter Boyd taking fourth on 65 bih.

In the scratch section, Craig Barrett had an excellent 68 which included three birdies, Peter McLean Jnr was second on 73, with Inveraray’s George Morrison third with 78 and Mike McNeill fourth with 80 bih.

The longest drive at the second went to Derek Robertson and closest to the pin at the eighth was Scott Robertson.

A Tarbert Golf Club spokesperson said: ‘Many thanks to Stuart Herd of the Harbour Gallery for his continued support and to the visitors who travelled to support the event.’

Tomorrow (Saturday), it is the ladies’ turn to compete in the West Loch Shores Open. Places are still available and players are asked to book them via the app.
