Montrose Mercantile team win Angus Clubs' Invitational Foursomes

As part of Royal Montrose Golf Club’s bicentenary celebrations, on last Sunday, Royal Montrose Golf Club entertained 20 other Carnoustie Country golf clubs in the Angus Clubs Invitational Foursomes.
“Following a wonderful day of golf on the Montrose Links to celebrate the founding of the first golf club in Angus 200 years ago, the teams retired to our clubhouse for the prize-giving,” said Brian Ritchie, Club Captain, Royal Montrose Golf Club.
Montrose Mercantile’s team of Graham Young and Doreen Gordon won the Rose Bowl, which was presented by David Valentine, Head of Economic Development and ECP, Angus Council, on behalf of Carnoustie Country, followed by Downfield (S. Marshall, D. Thomson) and Montrose Caledonia (F. Auld, D. Adam).
Royal Montrose’s top team consisted of Cathy and Ian Stuart, who won a golfing weekend in the Scottish Borders, with S. Grant and R. Phinney in second place and G. Strachan and E. McGurk in third place.
At the request of Mike Miller of K2 Max Ltd, sponsors of the Angus Clubs Invitational Foursomes, the day was gifted to Macmillan Cancer Support. “A variety of fundraising activities took place during the competition and we were delighted to hand over a cheque for £600 to Macmillan Cancer Support,” continued Brian. “Being able to help such an incredibly worthwhile charity was undoubtedly one of the highlights of the day.”
