Am-Am Results


The 13th Am-Am took place at Machrihanish Golf Club on Saturday 24th May. Thirty nine teams competed for The Cruachan Am-Am Cup which was donated by the late, former captain, Gordon H V Campbell in 2002. In a dry but breezy and overcast day, mixed with some late sunshine, the four person better ball team format resulted in the former winners in 2007 recapturing the trophy in superb style. The team from Springbank, one of the joint sponsors of the event, shot an unbelievable nett score of 54 to win by two shots. The winning team consisted of Stuart Campbell, Gavin McLachlan, Ranald Watson and John McLean.
The ever popular Am-Am was jointly sponsored by Springbank, The Ardshiel Hotel and Drumore Pine. On one of the most eagerly awaited days in Machrihanish’s golf calendar, the scores produced by the five teams on the prize list were truly excellent. It really was a case of “horses-for-courses” with the first four teams having previously won the competition. Last year’s winners, Andrew Robertson, Kevan Gilchrist, Graham Gilchrist and Alan Glendinning put up a valiant effort in defending the trophy with a 3rd place finish, only missing out on the runners up spot on the count back rule to Charles McIntyre, John Lamont, Donald MacKinnon and Fergus Walker. The 2012 winning team of Finlay Wylie, David Campbell, Neil McCallum and Ian McGougan were fourth, again by virtue of the count back rule, with 5th place, recording a nett 58, being taken by Willie MacDonald, Duncan MacDonald, Ray Mitchell and John Stewart.
Club captain, David Rankin, thanked the main sponsors for their extremely generous support and also gave a big thanks to the other sponsors who so generously donated prizes played for on all eighteen holes.

The prizes were presented by Mairi Campbell, wife of Springbank Company Secretary and Director, and part of the winning team, Stuart Campbell.

The raffle for the set of irons was won by Andrew Anderson, son of vice-captain, Graham.
