An impressive run of three successive victories has secured the Bute Seniors Golf League title for Port Bannatyne for the first time in three years.

The Port players lost only one game out of 12 in matches against holders Rothesay and twice against Bute on their way to lifting the McMillan Quaich.

They coasted to 3½-½ wins in both home matches with their island opponents and followed up with an excellent 3-1 away win at Kingarth.

That leaves the Port team in an unassailable position with one match remaining against Rothesay after the Canada Hill team were held to a 2-2 drawn match at home to Bute.
