Ardgowan Club

ARDGOWAN Club recently held their annual Open Gents Triples competition which was once again sponsored by P B Wright and Sons.
As well as the local clubs, teams from Ayrshire, Argyll and Dunbartonshire all took part in the tournament.

The good weather brought the best out in the players and, at the end of the round robin groups, eight clubs had battled through to the knock-out stages

The ties in the knock-out rounds were close with some ties having to be decided by an extra end.

The final was contested by two Ardgowan teams, N Forbes, R Pinkerton and R McShane (skip) and
P Walker, T Gwilliam and J Dunlop (skip).

The team skipped by Jim Dunlop, who only came
together at the last minute because of a late
withdrawal, won a close final by 5 shots to 4 shots.

At the close of play,
Ardgowan President Steven Houston thanked the
competitors for making the tournament such
a success;

He also thanked P B Wright and Sons for their
generous sponsorship and invited Helen McNeil of
P B Wright and Sons to present the winning team
with their trophy.
