Rothesay Golf Club's championship finals take place on Saturday, June 14.

Long-time adversaries Graham Bolton and George Reynolds will do battle for the club championship title at Rothesay Golf Club on Saturday.

Bolton and Reynolds, who already have 21 Rothesay championship wins between them, will play off for the prize over 36 holes after semi-final victories on Thursday over Rory McEwan and Calum McKirdy respectively.

McEwan sealed his last four place with a quarter-final win over reigning champion Tommy Reynolds, while McKirdy was a surprise last eight winner against Ian White, who had led the battle for a place in the knockout stages after the first round of qualifying.

Meanwhile, the division two championship final, for the Atlantic Tankard, will be between Jimmy Ewing and Ryan McKirdy, who edged out Jimmy Burke and Stephen Reynolds respectively in the last four.

The division three final, for the Sunnidale Bowl, will see Stuart Strathie face Darren Leonard, the pair having seen off the challenges of Gary Steele and club captain Stan Gaston in the semi-final.

Gaston missed out on a place in the new-for-2014 senior club championship when he lost to Gordon Shaw in the last four; Shaw will face John Duncan in the final after Duncan beat Jimmy Milliken.

The two rounds of the club championship final tee off at 9am and 1.30pm, while the Atlantic Tankard final gets under way at 12.30pm, the Sunnidale Bowl at 12.40pm, the senior final at 12.50pm and the junior championship final at 1pm.
