Generous sponsorship from Dunrobin Castle allowed Golspie Golf Club to reward the two principal winners of the Millicent Bowl 36 hole Open Tournament with prize vouchers to the value of £250 each.

The castle along with the former Dukes of Sutherland and their heirs have had a long connection with Golspie Golf Club and it was a relative, the Earl of Rosslyn who in 1963 gifted the competition's handicap trophy in memory and affection of his great aunt Millicent Duchess of Sutherland.

The handicap trophy was augmented later by a scratch trophy donated by the late local fishmonger Alec Campbell now known as the Campbell Shield.

The winner of the Millicent Bowl pictured below with Dornoch Castle General manager Scott Morrison and Club Captain William Macbeath was local teenager Danny Doogan who scored two gross rounds of 75 off a handicap of 7.

The Campbell shield was won by George Paterson Head Greenkeeper at Fortrose and Rosemarkie course with rounds of 69 and 76.
