A hundred and five players took to the course at Dunaverty Golf Club last Saturday to compete for the Holiday Open 2022 title and the Duncan Watson Salver.
The course was presented in immaculate condition, as always, by green-keepers Jonathan Barbour and Campbell MacBrayne, with many great comments, especially about the club’s superb greens.
The early starters had some light rain to contend with, the late morning/lunchtime competitors had dry but a tad windy conditions and the late afternoon players were blessed with the best of the conditions.
The early pace was set by George MacMillan, who returned a fantastic gross 63, and by Lee Mathieson with a nett 61.
Several players came close to these scores throughout the day but it was Robert Coffield in the final group who took the handicap title with a magnificent round of gross 64, nett 57, winning the trophy.
‘Thanks to Rona and Ailie at The Tea Box for looking after everyone and special mention to our players who travelled from Holland, USA and Czech Republic to play,’ said a club spokesperson.
