In perfect weather Lochgilphead Golf Club gents turned out to play for the July medal.

There were some excellent scores and a few non-returns at various stages in the round on Saturday July 10.

Winning with 59 strokes was long standing member Drew Swan with fairly new member Eddie Shaw two strokes behind on 61.

The ladies were competing for the Totally Tartan Claret Jug sponsored by Ali MacColl of AMF Fabrics.

Fantastic under-par scores were everywhere, but Margaret MacKinnon came out on top with a tremendous 44 points, beating Jane Hepburn by four points.

Some Lochgilphead members headed to Carradale to support them in their open as home competitions saw Donna McKellar win round two of the Charity Cup with 18 points, beating Fiona McLeod on a countback.

In the gents’ section Steven Gilmour won the Peter White Cup with a nett 60 strokes beating Douglas Whyte by two strokes.
