ROTHESAY’s Scott McAlister won the junior open title at Cowal Golf Club with a superb scratch score of 77 - on his first time playing the Dunoon club’s course.

Scott’s winning score was also enough to win him the ClubGolf prize for his section - and he was joined on the winners’ rostrum by his Rothesay clubmate Lewis Poole, who won the ClubGolf prize for those with handicaps between 18 and 36 with a net score of 68 (91-23), also on his first attempt at the Cowal course.

The island’s prize haul was completed by Joe Livingstone, who won a pair of Oakley sunglasses for being nearest the pin at the 14th, and Scott Dunn, who won a set of Srixon golf balls and a club for being nearest the pin at the sixth hole.
