Rothesay Golf Club’s David Coll won the club’s George Hanson Building Contractors Senior Open with a net score of 68.

David’s round, off a handicap of 12 shots, gave him victory by the better inward half, while George Reynolds and new club champion Ian White were tied for first place in the battle for the scratch prize after both returned scores of 72.

Reynolds, however, had a further reason to be cheerful after landing a hole in one - his sixth since taking up the game in his youth - at the eighth, winning a large bottle of whisky from hole sponsor George Ross of Mac’s Bar as his prize.

Age group results were as follows.

50-57: 1 A. Woods, 2 Hugh Charker, 3 Colin Spear, 4 Alan Laughlan.

58-64: 1 D. Pearson (Old Ranfurly), 2 John Duncan, 3rd G. McGregor, 4th Jim Lauder.

65+: 1 Stan Gaston, 2 R. McMillan, 3 Jim Torrance, 4 B. Laughlin.
