Rothesay Bowling Club dominated the prize list as this year’s Bute Bowling Association open tournament reached a climax at Ardbeg on Saturday.

Three of the four competitions produced Rothesay winners, with David McMurchie winning the gents’ singles title, John Gilchrist and David Reynolds taking the gents’ pairs prize and Cathy McMurchie and Joan Reynolds securing the ladies’ pairs title.

The ladies’ singles champion was Lawra Cox of West Kilbride, though she secured the title in a walkover after her final opponent, Lilian McDonald of Innellan, was unable to play due to illness.
