Lochgilphead Golf Club welcomed visitors from near and far to play in their ladies open, kindly sponsored by the Stag Hotel.

Visitors started their day with a breakfast roll supplied by Empire Travel Lodge before heading out to compete for the many prizes on offer, including a prize for a challenge at every hole.

Lochgilphead’s Kirsty Flanagan was triumphant in the open with an impressive 41 points. This is Kirsty’s first year playing golf and she was over the moon to pick up the elegant trophy, presented to her by past member Isobel McMillan.

The day was a great success and ladies captain Donna McKellar thanked everyone from the many clubs who participated. Thanks also went to the greens staff who prepared the course and to the volunteers from the gents section who supported the event on the day.
