In the Haggs Castle men's Club Championship final (on right, presenting the Trophy to Chris is Ricky Webster, Club Captain) over 36 holes.
Chris Dunbar who joined the Club this year was playing Craig Morrison the Centenary Club Champion in 2010.  
The match was extremely close all the way with Craig getting to the turn in the afternoon round in 34, 2 under, but Chris withstood the pressure and from the 9th fired 4 birdies in about 5 holes to take a 2 up lead into the closing stages.  
Craig's approach shot at 16 was close but Chris holed a good putt from outside Craig to force him to hole to keep the match going which he did.  Chris played the 17th regulation to close out the match to become Club Champion in 2013.

In the Junior Championship final over 36 holes, Aran Sinclair, already Junior Champion at Bearsden GC, was playing David Lamond.  Again a very close contest with David getting to 3 up during the second round but being pegged back by Aran who was 1 down playing the last.  A half in par 5s en
sured David (pictured left) became Junior Champion for the first time.

In the Ladies Championship final  many times winner and finalist Jennifer Mack was playing 2009 Club Captain Audrey Sturgess over 18 holes.  
Audrey took an early 2 hole lead but Jennifer turned this round and coming down 17 Jennifer was 2 up.  
Jennifer was in a bit of trouble in the front bunker and Audrey won the hole to take the match down the 18th.  Jennifer played 2 excellent shots to the front fringe while Audrey was in the greenside bunker left in 3.  Jennifer played a nice chip and Audrey was unable to get her birdie allowing Jennifer to win the Championship for the 8th time.
