Sunday brings the climax to the Rothesay Motor Services Winter League at the Port, with plenty on offer for everyone.

The Championship Match will see Donald Standaloft and Davie Kilpatrick take on Mark Crichton and Steven Greenshields, both at short odds from the early rounds.

However, there is more than just the Championship on offer for the golfers as the tournament reaches it’s climax.

At the other end of the scale, Jim Thom and Gordie McIntyre will strive to avoid the dreaded wooden spoon against the Dunn brothers.

With food and drinks at 1pm, followed by the prize giving at approximately 2pm, there is plenty on offer for all, including a draw for a new golf bag and accessories.
