Following a busy season of Monday night coaching, members of Tarbert Golf Club’s junior section held their championship last Sunday, courtesy of generous sponsorship from Loch Fyne Gallery.

The threat of wet and windy weather did not daunt the enthusiasm of the young golfers, who took part in three different competitions.

The junior champion was Connor MacRae, group three champion was Aiden Kerr, group two champion was Jack Sinclair and group one champion was Macey Fair.

As part of their prizes, the children received a British Open top from Portrush which was kindly signed by European Tour star Robert MacIntyre.

‘Congratulations to everyone who participated and many thanks to Lesley at Loch Fyne Gallery for her sponsorship,’ said a club spokesperson.

‘Thanks to Captain Kenny for organising the coaching and the championship. See you all next season.’

At Glenralloch last Saturday, the gents competed for the September Medal in poor overhead conditions although the course was in terrific condition with the greens running the best all year.

The only disappointment apart from the weather was the poor turnout.

Despite a horror start with a seven, John MacNab recovered well to take first place with a 70-7 for a nett 63, with Andrew Henderson on 68 and Jamie Stuart on 69.

Bruce MacNab took first scratch on 69 including two precious magic twos.

The next trophy for the gents is the Glenralloch Cup next Saturday, October 9.
