Bute Golf Club’s 2014 trophy winners received their silverware on Saturday night at the club’s annual dinner and presentation of prizes at Kingarth Hotel.

Top honours went to the club’s gents’ and ladies’ champions, Graham Bolton and Elizabeth Speirs, who, like all the season’s trophy winners, were presented with their prizes by club captain Steven Neilson and his wife Martha.

Bolton won the Gavin North Trophy for the third time, completing a remarkable hat-trick of Kingarth championship wins, having only entered the Bute championship title fight on three occasions - in 2000, 2011 and 2014 - and triumphed on each occasion.

Elizabeth shared top place in the list of lady winners with Liz Archibald, the pair topping the awards table with five victories apiece.
