Machrihanish Golf Club last Saturday hosted its last open event of the season, the popular McFadyens Contractors AMAM.

Thirty teams took part in the competition, but it was Tarbert Golf Club’s ‘Tractormen’ who took home the coveted trophy.

The team of Duncan Johnstone, Iain Johnstone, Iain Macalister and Iain McArthur combined very well to take first place on 22-under-par to secure the win.

At the presentation, Captain ‘Stone’ thanked Darren Kelly of McFadyens Contractors for the company’s fantastic support and he complemented Machrihanish Golf Club captain Kevan Gilchrist on a well organised competition.

He also thanked greenkeeper Craig Barr and his team for having the course in excellent condition and Jennie and Anthony Dunn in the professional shop.

Results: 1 Duncan Johnstone, Iain Johnstone, Iain Macalister and Iain McArthur; 2 Bobby Dalziel, Kieran McGeachy, Davey Devine and Ricky Tonner; 3 Alan Glendinning, Andrew Robertson, Kevan Gilchrist and Graham Gilchrist; 4 Stewart Blue, Tommy Blue, Robert McGougan and Campbell Anderson; 5 Campbell McFadyen, Thomas Jordan, Scott McLachlan and James Ronald.

‘A big thank you to our sponsors, McFadyens Contractors, and well done to all the winners,’ said a Machrihanish Golf Club spokesperson. ‘A great day was had by all.’
