Tarbert Golf Club hosted the final two rounds of its club championship last weekend.

Greenkeeper Graham Prentice had the Glenralloch course in superb condition for the competition.

The third round of any championship is known as moving day and that was definitely the case on Saturday as a superb 68 from Peter McLean snr and a 69 from Iain Macalister saw them move in the right direction.

Thirty-six-hole leader Angus MacFarlane shot 75 as did John MacNab, with Angus retaining a one-shot lead over John and two from Iain.

Recent open winner Iain MacArthur shot nett 60 to continue his recent good form.

Conditions were a bit overcast on Sunday for the final round of the championship but the golf was good with Angus taking a three-shot lead by the turn.

John rallied to birdie the 15th and 16th but an eagle two from Angus at the 16th was the icing on the cake and his final round 67 to John’s 71 gave him a five-shot victory overall and his third championship success.
