Winter League Champions Liam Shanks and David Greer flank Megan Taylor and Dwayne Reid of Rothesay Motor Services.

Three-in-a-row in Port Winter League

Liam Shanks and David Greer made it a hat-trick of Port Bannatyne Winter League titles when they saw off Calum MacPhail and Pete Barnett  by 2 &1 in Sunday’s close-run final.

It was even closer in the 3rd/4th play-off with Mike Ivory and James Webster only seeing-off Jim Bicker and Jamie Jardine at the 18th.

In the tussle to avoid the wooden spoon, John Preston and Graham Fisher took advantage of the non-appearance of Robert Turnbull, easing potential embarrassment by running-out 5 & 4 winners over a solitary Alan Stewart. 

Captain  Hector Whitelaw welcomed a packed clubhouse to the prizegiving, describing the Rothesay Motor Services Winter League as the biggest tournament in the Club’s year, involving more than 40 players.

Match Secretary Donald Standaloft said that, given weeks of snow and rain, it was a relief to finally get through to finals day, before inviting Megan Taylor of the sponsors to present a generous array of prizes.

In his vote-of-thanks, David Greer paid tribute to greenkeeper John Marshall for the excellent condition of the course throughout.

LEARN TO GOLF AT PORT BANNATYNE IN 2018

In partnership with Scottish Golf, Port Bannatyne Golf Club will continue to offer coaching for beginner golfers during 2018.  Adult beginners can join group coaching sessions and bring up to 2 children (8 to 11 years old).   Sessions start on Friday 20th April at 6.15pm.

Golf equipment is provided by the club, participants should wear warm, comfortable clothes and non-slip trainers to be ready for our Scottish weather!

Scottish Golf’s Volunteer Level 1 coach Elaine Thom said, “Learning on the course in a club setting means that players can pick up more than just the basic skills of the game, we also work on course management, rules and etiquette to ensure new players are confident and safe out on the course.  Playing in the club mixed competitions means adults new to the game will get fully involved in the social side of the club too.  The unique handicapping system in golf and the success of the Club and Fun Friday night games have shown how different ages and abilities can play together socially and competitively.”
