AROUND 200 golfers took part recently in what has become one of the biggest golfing events in East Dunbartonshire.

The fourth annual Graeme Sinclair Memorial tournament was a resounding success, with 50 teams of four competing for some great prizes.

The event, in memory of Graeme who died in 2007, is organised by Graeme’s family and has grown each year.

Graeme’s brother Gordon told the Herald: “It is a great tribute that so many people turned out in his memory.

“Everyone had a fantastic day, which is what Graeme would have wanted.”

Top prizes on offer included a car if anyone managed a hole-in-one at the sixth.

Gordon said: “Unfortunately, the closest was Ken Jack who managed to get it to about two-and-a-half feet from the hole.”

The winners of the Graeme Sinclair Memorial tournament were Ross Pollard, Dave Pollard, Ronnie Barton and Ian Muir with a fantastic score of 50, 16 under par.

Second were Martin Gallagher, Paddy Carr, Harry Scott and Stevie Differ with a score of 51 and third were Alex Smart, David Graham, Derek Mitchell and Andrew Alexander with a score of 51.1.

Gordon said: “The family would like to thank everyone for making it a great success.”
