  • Thistle hit a hole in one

    On Sunday March 3rd the club held its very first Texas Scramble fundraiser at Tain Golf club (<a href="http://www.tain-golfclub.co.uk">www.tain-golfclub.co.uk</a>).<br /><br />The day went without too many hitches and was a resounding success. With approximately one hundred golfers taking part it took a fair bit of organisation and a big thank you must go to Magi Vass, Stuart Morrison and Thistle's Steven Martin for helping to make the day a success. We were fortunate enough to get a cracking day and the course was in immaculate condition, which allowed for some excellent scoring. The winning score was 53, an impressive 17 below par. Congratulations to Mathew Sharples from Muir of Ord, the winning captain.<br /><br /><img class="imgleft" border="0" align="right" alt="" src="http://www.tainthistle.co.uk/news/data/upimages/golfers.jpg">There were a few notable instances on the day including Rob Farquhar, the father of Tain Thistle player Martyn, holing out from around 200 yards for an albatross on the 4th hole. This was however, outdone by the dress sense of Thistle pair Liam Rostock and Steven Martin (left).<br /><br />All in all a good day was had by all who took part and both the football club and the golf club did well. Steven Martin was delighted to be able to hand over £940 to Thistle chairman Brian Macangus after the prize giving. <br /><br />The prize winners were:<br /><br />1st Place: Mathew Sharples (Muir of Ord), 53<br />2nd Place: Gary Ross (Tain Thistle) 54.7<br />3rd Place: Alan Sangster (Tain GC) 56<br /><br />Closest to the pin: Ross Macangus.<br /><br />The club are very grateful for the attendance of the event, with teams travelling from as far afield as Inverness and Helmsdale. A huge thank you must go out to all of the local businesses and individuals who donated raffle prizes and helped out on the day.<br /><br />Donations were received from:<br /><br /><ul><li>Taylor Made Nails</li><br /><li>Scotsburn Garden Centre</li><br /><li>Munro Butchers</li><br /><li>Bannerman’s seafood</li><br /><li>Lidl (Tain)</li><br /><li>Grants Bakery</li><br /><li>Harry Gow’s</li><br /><li>Salon 19</li><br /><li>Mike Sangster</li><br /><li>Willie Rostock</li><br /><li>Stuart Morrison</li></ul><br />The next event on Thistle’s fundraising calendar is the dinner / dance to be held on March 16th at the Saint Duthus hotel in Tain. There are still a limited number of tickets available priced at only £15 per head.
