Rothesay retain trophy by Webmaster @ 12:40 GMT

Rothesay G.C. retained the trophy played for between the two clubs. The score of 31/2 to 3/12 was not enough for the Port Club to win back the trophy and so it returns to the Rothesay G.C. Trophy cabinet. A superb day was rounded off by a fabulous meal provided by Janey Jardine and the general bragging rights that goes on after this annual duel. The results were as follows ( Port names first)-
I. Shaw & P. Barnett BT S. McKechnie & G. McGuigan 3&2: R. Turnbull & D. Driver lost to I. Simpson & K. Thomson 3&1: R. Jardine & D. Bodys bt H. Charker & J. Ewing 1 up: J. Thom & C. MacPhail lost to C. Charger & J. Burke 2&1: A. Greer & A. Greer (Jnr) lost to R. McKechnie & S. Kernaghen 3&1: D. Reid & R. Shaw bt R. Cuthbertson & F. Lee 4&3: J. Bicker & G. McIntyre halved with J. Maltman & R. McArthur


For Calum MacPhail & P. Barnett it was a case of déjà vue in the Ettrick Bay Tea Room Summer Cup round 2. After a score of 36 in round 1 they repeated that in round 2. After a net hole in one at the 10 th in round one, Calum repeated that but this time with his 2 net 1 at the 11th. Even at this early stage in the competition they are proving to be the front runners.


New names were added to the Salmon Leap winners list last week when Joe Livingstone took first place with 33 points and Iain McFarlane was in second with 28.


This week End it is a case of no golf at the Port but all action none the less. Saturday is Tee in the Port and Sunday is clean up day. Bring it on!

McFadyen mixed night by Webmaster @ 00:54 GMT


The first mixed Texas Scramble of the season proved to be a close affair with the first and second places decided by the better inward half. The nett score of 35.1 was carded by the sponsor's team of Jack Paterson, Mike Ivory and with one lady golfer short, Matthew Dunn came to play at the last minute. The other team on the same score was that of Captain Jim Bicker's team playing with Anita Rutherford and Graham Fisher. When the better inward halves were compared Jack's team counted to 22 while the Captain's team had one less on 21 to take the winning spot. Third place went to Helen MacLeod, Donald Standaloft and Sandy Hill on 36.4. As per usual with The McFadyen Trophy the sponsorship was generous and the prize list long and the Port Club are grateful to both the Paterson and McFadyen families for their continued support of this competition. As is her norm, Janey Jardine provided the competitors with a fabulous buffet which was enjoyed by all.

The prize winners were as follows:-

Winners:- Anita Rutherford, Graham Fisher & Jim Bicker: Runners Up - Jack Paterson, Mike Ivory & Matthew Dunn: Third - Helen MacLeod, Donald Standaloft & Sandy Hill: Best Scratch - Angie Black, Willie McFadyen & Scott Dunn: Consolation Prize - Janey Jardine, Ian Shaw & Robert McArthur: Nearest Pins - At 10 - Ladies - Paula Morrison. Gents - Jim Thom: at 18 - Ladies - Maureen Shaw. Gents - Gordy McIntyre. Longest Drive at 2nd for Gents - Donald Standaloft. Straightest Drive at 7 for Ladies - Michelle Standaloft.


Sadly the horrendous weather on Saturday night and Sunday morning flooded the 1st, 3rd and 5th greens and after an early morning inspection it was decided to postpone the Cowal Builders Seniors Open. This competition will now take place on a Sunday 29th June.

Second round to be played at later date by Webmaster @ 00:52 GMT

Alistair Shaw led the field after the Saturday round of The Hector Scott Trophy and should have gone into the Sunday round one shot ahead of the rest of the field but, the torrential rain overnight and on Sunday morning saw the port course return to real winter conditions with a river running down the 12th fairway and therefore the match secretary had no option but to declare the course unplayable. Saturday's round was played in really difficult conditions with the rain and wind contributing to a CSS of 68. Alistair's net 67 (77 - 10) was one shot ahead of John Black and two shots in front of Jim Thom with only these three players in the field breaking net 70. The second round will be re-scheduled as soon as possible.


Donald Standaloft was on the right side of a better half contest with Tommy Wilkinson on Friday night to win the Salmon Leap with both players on a score of 27.


Stephen Renfrew represented Argyll & Bute in the County Championships held over the week-end and although scoring a 73 & 78 it was not enough to see the six man team go through to the knockout stages. The eventual winners, Renfrewshire, beat Lanarkshire 31/2 to 21/2 in the final.


The first mixed scramble of the season is on Friday night in the form of The McFadyen Trophy with players asked to meet at 5.45 for a 6.00 shotgun start. Teams and starting tees will be posted in the foyer.


Knockout draws are now on the locker room notice board and with no golf organised for Saturday this may be a good time to get a few of those ties played!


The Cowal Builders & Plumbers Senior Open is on Sunday with a rolling ballot starting at 8.00am and finishing at 1.30 pm with the prize giving at 5.00 pm.


Calum leaps in front by Webmaster @ 00:50 GMT

It was a case of previous success costing players prizes at this week's Salmon Leap! Robert Jardine scored the best stablford tally of the night with 31 points but his previous success this month cost him a minus two to give him 29. Donald Standaloft scored 30 points but, like Robert, his previous month's success cost him but only the one pint bringing him down to 29. Then along came Calum MacPhail with his score of 29 but no minus points AND the better half of the three to take first place with Robert resigned to second and Donald with silch!
Alex Greer won the £1 sweep medal on Sunday with the CSS being a non counter.

This week end is The Hector Scott with the best two aggregate net scores over Saturday and Sunday taking the trophy. Members are reminded that no play can take place prior to 9.00 on Saturday.
