The latest round of the Caithness and Sutherland Seniors Golf Society was hosted by Reay, and there was some spectacular scoring in all four handicap categories.

Graham Harness of the home club won category four with the best Stableford score of the day after a fabulous haul of 44 points which included a hole in one at the fifth – Harness’s second ace at that hole in the space of the last six months. Brora’s Ian Walker finished runner-up on countback ahead of David Irvine of Thurso after both carded rounds of 37 points.

Category one saw another home winner in the shape of Bruce Mackay, who birdied the sixth, 10th and 14th holes on the way to a score of 39 points.

Ian Ross birdied the third and 14th holes to take second place on 38 points, with Paul Jackson (Brora) taking third on a score of 35 points following a round which included birdies at the third, 12th and 18th holes.

Mark Tunstall of Brora won category two after a birdie at the sixth helped him on the way to an excellent score of 40 points.

Donald Mowat of the home club produced a steady round for his 39 points and second place, with Gordon MacHardy (Golspie) birdieing the fifth and sixth on his way to a score of 36 points and third.

Colin Struthers made it a hat-trick of wins for the home club by topping category three after a solid round gave him a score of 39 points, ahead of Royal Dornoch’s John Chambers, who finished on 33, and Alan Simmonite of Thurso who finished in third place on 32 points.

In the team event Reay bagged four points, while Brora took two points back down the A9. The next Caithness and Sutherland seniors' event will be hosted by Bonar Bridge/Ardgay on Tuesday, May 17.
