A team of colleagues from Alger Electrics in Dumbarton have won this year's West Dunbartonshire Pro-Am 2018 golf tournament.

The sun was shining as Michael Devoy, Brian O’Neil, Gordon Lynn and their designated pro Christopher Currie, of Erskine Golf Club, tee’d off at the popular event, held at Dalmuir Golf Course in Clydebank.

A total of 35 teams took part in the event - in its 32nd year - with each group of three amateurs joined by a professional player.

Alongside plaudits for the winning team, there is also a shot at glory for the professional with the best individual score. This year the prize went to Ross Cameron with a score of six under par.

Amateur awards were also presented to Alan Rushworth for being Nearest the Pin; Jack Savage for the Longest Drive; and Gordon McFarlane for being Nearest the Line.

Provost William Hendrie was on hand to congratulate all of the competitors and especially the winners.

Provost William Hendrie said: “We couldn’t have asked for better weather for today’s game and it was a fantastic opportunity to showcase the course. The winning team performed exceptionally well and there was real competition out there for the big prize. 

"I would like to thank all of the professionals who took part and made the 2018 competition one of the best yet. It's important to recognise the team behind the scenes who deserve immense credit for their continuing efforts to successfully deliver the Pro-am.

“I would also like to thank our partners the Scottish Professional Golfers Association for their support once again and we look forward to many more editions of the West Dunbartonshire Pro-Am.”
