A cool dry day with a stiff wind greeted the Dunaverty Golf Club members last Saturday vying to win the Kiel Trophy .

The wind made for tricky conditions and this helped to keep scores relatively high.

Alan Goddard, the first man out, set a target of nett 66 for the others to chase.

He was quickly followed by Harry MacLean and Dougie Graham, both of whom also posted nett 66s.

Close behind these two, Alex Arkell came in with a 64 only to be pipped by playing companion Jimmy Williamson who recorded a 63.

Jimmy’s lead only lasted a short while as Hamish Kelly, playing his best golf this season, eased into the winning position with a nett 62.

Result:1 Hamish Kelly 83-21=62, 2 Jimmy Williamson 80-17=63, 3 Alex Arkell 77-13=64, 4 Alan Goddard 80-14=66 (bih), 5 Harry MacLean 73-7=66 (bih), 6 Dougie Graham 81-15=66.

Gross: 1 Harry MacLean 73, 2 Campbell MacBrayne 74, 3 Ross Sinclair 75, 4 Douglas Neilson 76, 5 Neil Brodie 76, 6 Alex Arkell 77.
