WHINHILL Golf Club’s season drew to a close with its annual prizegiving.
Most of the competitions attracted large numbers of competitors, making 2021 very successful.
At the start of the night, presentations were made to the winners of the very few competitions the club managed to hold during the 2020 season as these winners could not be honoured with a prizegiving, last year, because of pandemic restrictions.
The 2020 season saw John Donald crowned Club Champion for the seventh time.
This year, the club won the Renfrewshire Golf Union County Cup for the second time in three years and Andrew McDonald became Club Champion for the first time.
