Golf: Rothesay favourites for seniors league title

Rothesay Golf Club have set themselves up as favourites for the 2013 Bute Seniors League title after a win and a draw in their opening two fixtures.

A comprehensive 4-0 win at home to Bute gave Rothesay, the reigning league champions, the ideal start to their 2013 campaign, before a 2-2 halved match away to a severely under-strength Port Bannatyne team continued their unbeaten start to the season.

The Port’s team, however, still harbour hopes of regaining the title they last won in 2011, and should receive a boost when several of their stars arrive back, bronzed and fit, from injudiciously arranged cruises.
