The Lochgoilhead Golf Club Open Results

31 golfers played in the Lochgoilhead Golf Club Open event on Saturday 30th June in aid of MND Scotland. The weather was perfect and the course was in very good condition. All the golfers were treated to complimentary breakfast rolls, coffee/tea from Argyll Holidays before they teed off. After stocking up on mars bars, snickers, water and coke cola supplied by the club, the golfers played their round of golf. Stableford was the format for the day and the winner was a visitor, Peter Farquarson with a fantastic 40 points. The runner up Danny Butchart with 38 points, after a countback, the Birthday Boy (he kept that quiet) Davey Moffat was awarded 3rd place with a score of 37 points. The fundraising continued in the evening in The Goil Inn, where golfers, friends, family, locals and holiday makers were entertained by the fabulous Goilers. Big thanks to our sponsor, Andy McCunn, Colin Smith, the Greenkeeper, all the golfers, Argyll Holidays, The Goil Inn, The Goilers and everyone for supporting for this great cause, a total of £1,104.48 was raised for MND Scotland.
