ALAN Mcintyre, Gerry Morton, Keith Merchant and Bill Murphy were triumphant in Boyce Hill Golf Club’s Belton Bash.

The quartet scored an impressive 90 points to win the traditional festive competition.

Club chairman Terry Belton has held the annual event for more than 40 years.

Belton first started the competition when he was a member of Belfairs Golf Club, and he continued the tradition after he joined Boyce Hill in 1979.

The stableford event was open to all members and involved teams of four going head-to-head, with the best two scores counting.

This year’s contest involved 10 teams.

But Mcintyre, Morton, Merchant and Murphy were in exceptional form and were the clear winners after completing all 18 holes.

The winning team were able to take home a bottle of port each as their prize.

Countback was needed to determine who would claim the runners-up position, as two teams finished on 84 points.

Second place eventually went to Simon Arnold, Gareth Ackery, Keith Exley and Ron Taylor.

As a result, Martin Hayhurst, Graham Anslow, Tony Hart and David Holmes were left to settle for third spot.

Meanwhile, John Dixon won a bottle of wine for nearest the pin on the eighth hole and Dave Martin won a bottle of wine for nearest the pin on the 18th hole.
