Dunaverty Golf Club’s ladies raised £600 for Scotland’s Charity Air Ambulance following a very successful Texas Scramble at the captain’s charity day.

This was thanks to the generosity of everybody – including the gents’ section – who donated, provided raffle prizes and bought raffle tickets.

Six teams of three ladies took part and, with the weather on their side, they enjoyed an excellent competition.

The event was sponsored by Beinn an Tuirc Distillers which provided a bottle of Kintyre Gin to each member of the winning team – Elizabeth Marrison, Lorna Cook and Susan McLennan – who scored an unbeatable nett 56.

‘Thanks to the green-keepers for the excellent condition of the course and to everyone who helped, supported and played,’ said a club spokesperson.

Eleven Dunaverty ladies were also in action as they competed for the Charles Hunter Trophy over two rounds held across a two-week period.

The first round took place in near perfect conditions: sunny and almost windless.

Katharine Hardman, an early contestant home, carded a very respectable nett 64 but this was swiftly beaten by Ailie MacBrayne with a very respectable nett 61.

However, lunchtime player Linn Coffield stormed the field coming home in nett 56.

Evening player Inez Ronald continued her current on-form golf, carding a nett 62.

Round two took place with dull overcast conditions for the morning players but improved as the day progressed.

Ailie MacBrayne came home in first place with nett 62. Lorna Cook took second place with nett 66 and Inez Ronald was third with nett 70 (best last three).

Final placings after the two rounds: 1 Ailie MacBrayne 61+62=123; 2= Inez Ronald 62+70=132 and Linn Coffield 56+76=132; 4 Lorna Cook 68+66=134.
