Alistair Weathers The Storm - Lybster 2007 Golf Championship
26th July 2007
The recent club championship final at Lybster Golf Club was played in weather conditions which made golf extremely difficult. In spite of the driving wind and rain, the hardy spectators who braved the elements were treated to some fine golf. John Munro, currently enjoying a good run of form, could not repeat the feats of previous rounds and match the performance of Alistair Young, who went on to win the Cormack Cup and become 2007 Club Champion.
The handicap championship was competed for on the following day. Once again, John Munro had to settle for second place, as Alan Larnach, the 2006 club champion, beat him to win the Portland Cup.
This Saturday the club will host the Lybster Open, generously sponsored by Scrabster Seafoods Ltd. In addition to the popular 'Nearest the Hole' challenge at the 5th and 14th holes, competitors will be given the chance to win rounds of golf for four at Loch Ness and Nairn Dunbar golf clubs in the raffle. The tee will be open from 8am - 4pm with the usual refreshments available.
