Conditions were tricky for the playing of the gents’ June Medal at Dunaverty Golf Club last Saturday.

A stiff 25-30mph wind swept over the course, bringing the constant threat of rain, but all 20 players managed to get round dry and some decent scores were returned.

It was the later morning starters who vied for the title, with both Hamish Kelly and Steven Garrett returning fine nett 65s, but they were trumped in the final group of the morning by Fraser MacBrayne who took the spoils with a magnificent nett 62 – taming the strong wind in the process.

A club spokesperson said: ‘The golf course was magnificently presented, as usual, thanks to the hard work and dedication of greenkeepers Jonathan Barbour and Campbell MacBrayne – which is appreciated by all members – and thanks also to Rona Burton at The Tea Box for catering to players’ needs when they came in out the wind.’

Result: 1 Fraser MacBrayne 73-11=62, 2 Steven Garrett 77-12=65 (bih), 3 Hamish Kelly 79-14=65, 4 Willie Ralston 84-17=67 (bih), 5 Don Hardman 78-11=67, 6 Harry MacLean 76-7=69. Lowest gross score on the day went to Fraser with a fine 73.
