The North-West Sutherland club came out top in this season’s competition which concluded at Tain on Sunday.

The shield was collected by Neil MacRae at the official presentation at the Ross-shire club.

Club spokesman Alistair Morrison says 13 players represented Durness over the course of the season.

He said everyone put in a tremendous effort to bring the title back to the North-West.

“This is the first time Durness have won the team trophy since the 2007/08 season,” confirmed Morrison.

“The Durness members have always supported the North Golf Winter Alliance fixtures very well, especially this year with a very enthusiastic group enjoying visiting and playing the different courses around the North.”

There was also success for Brora Golf Club member Angela Grant who was crowned the overall women’s champion of the 2021/22 North Winter Golf Alliance season.

All individual competitions were also decided at Tain Golf Club last week.

Tain golfer Munro Ferries was crowned champion of the overall scratch section.

He celebrated becoming champion by winning the final fixture by two shots from nearest rival Billy Ferries also from Tain.

Wick golfer Dougie Thorburn finished the season in third place.

Wick golfer Owen Cormack won the category one section with Thurso’s Alan Craigie category two winner.

There was also success for Durness golfer Paul Mackay who won the final category one fixture of the season at Tain.

He was level on net 71 with Bryan Suttar from Thurso Golf Club, but he came out on top thanks to a better inward half.
