The top prize, the Munro Quaich, was won by the group from Clansman Interiors.

After a morning on the greens, the golfers tucked into a buffet lunch followed by a short auction and then the prize-giving.

Sheila McLean, Hansel fundraising manager, said: “For once the weather was on our side, which made a huge difference as we usually run out of golf umbrellas and spare waterproofs.

Carrick Herald:

"Everyone was in great spirits and it was a really good competition with some high calibre shot-making.

“We would like to thank everyone who took part for their support and Barassie Golf Club – the hospitality was fantastic as always.”
