Seven teams of three took part in Isle of Seil Golf Club’s first Scarecrow Scramble Golf Tournament on Tuesday July 26, with entrants from as far away as New Zealand.

Some visitors with very low handicaps were determined to win but the top three places were taken by island teams.

The specially created trophy stays on the island and will be on display in the Heritage Centre in Ellenabeich.

A good game was had by all the contestants and thanks go to everyone who helped to make it a successful competition.

All the players enjoyed refreshments prior to the prizegiving, during which John Taylor was thanked for organising the event and Mary Phillips for acting as handicap secretary.

A total of £300 was raised to be donated to Seil Island Community Hall funds.

Results: 1 Steven Raebitt, Scott Johnstone and James Johnstone; 2 Robbie MacLarty, Keiron MacLarty and Greg MacDonald; 3 Douglas Hill, Dawn Singleton and Brien Dickey. Longest drive: Robbie MacLarty; Dawn Singleton. Nearest the pin at fourth hole: Adam McPhee; Nearest the pin at eighth hole: Gordon McColl. Birdie putts: Bill Dempster, Robbie MacLarty, Kieran MacLarty and Craig MacDonald.
