Inverness Fairways Target Golf Leagues Week 7

By Neil D. Hampton
Golf & Marketing Director, Loch Ness Golf Course, Inverness

The final Monday night game before the split didn’t through up any real surprises although this season’s only unbeaten team suffered their first defeat. BM Trucks, without their star player who was out of action due to a groin strain (a common target golf injury), had their lowest score of the season in their game against the Juniors who had the joint highest score of the night.
This left the door open for the Parahandies to join BM Trucks at the top of the table but their game against Orion ended in a draw – a very unusual result in target golf, but Orion’s second of the season!
Because of this, Orion could have been pipped for the final spot in the top half by the Sainties if they could have beaten the Neverwillbees but it was the Neverwillbees who returned their best score of the season so far and scuppered the Sainties chances.
Three Men and a Caddy had the bye and the 2 points have taken them to within 3 of the Neverwillbees and the Sainties so the battle for the wooden spoon is not over yet.
Monday night results:
Orion 49 – 49 Parahandies
The Neverwillbees 65 – 42 The Sainties
BM Trucks 36 – 65 Loch Ness Juniors
Three Men and a Caddy (Bye) 30.


The dash for the top four ended in a frenzied battle on Tuesday night. With four teams vying for just two places someone was going to be heartbroken and on Tuesday is was the Mad Drivers. King Kenyon’s Klan had a two point advantage over the other teams in the mix and playing top team Fairways may have caused them some nerves but they came through with flying colours, sending the leaders to their first defeat of the season.
This left three teams for one spot in the top four and with two playing each other shots scored totals looked like making the decision, and so it turned out. The Mad Drivers beat the league’s unluckiest team, Fairhurst Fore (who seem to contrive new ways to lose each week) by just 2 shots and put themselves in pole position but the Muirton Marvels dispatched the Senior Moments tieing the Drivers on 8 points but the Marvels had the superior shots scored total and took fourth place.
Despite losing this week Fairways are still top of the pile although now just by having scored 4 more shots than the Luckless Leadbetters, who saw off a poor Coastguards team. Just one point behind them thanks to their win are King Kenyon’s Klan who look like they are coming into forma at just the right time.
At the other end of the table the unlucky Fairhurst continue to prop up the rest but must fancy their chances of avoiding the wooden spoon given the Coastguards lack of scoring in recent weeks.
Coastguards 0 – 30 Luckless Leadbetters
Fairhurst Fore 25 – 27 Mad Drivers
King Kenyon’s Klan 56 – 39 Fairways
Senior Moments 29 – 45 Muirton Marvels.
