The final of this years 4 ball better ball championship was played over the Brighouse Bay course on Saturday.  
In the final were John Boynton and Chris Healey from Southerness against Rab McWilliams and Dale Ashby from Castle Douglas.  Both pairs had won through four rounds to reach the final with seven out of the eight Stewartry clubs taking part a total of 56 players.  
The Brighouse Bay course was in excellent condition and the weather was ideal for golf.  The final was a close affair with both sides not managing to gain a significant lead.  It was all square after the 17th and on the 18th green the Southerness pair had a putt to win the match.  
The stage was set for a Southerness win with a downhill putt of about 6 foot to win, it was tense and although Chris Healey struck his putt well it finished overhanging the hole.  Dale Ashby sank his putt to halve the hole and take the match into sudden death.  The missed putt was to prove costly as at the 20th hole the Castle Douglas pair won the match to become the 2013 4BBB champions.
Thanks go to Brighouse Bay and in particular Jim Dougal the professional for their help and assistance in accommodating the final.
