THE TEXAS Scramble organised last Sunday by Royal Montrose Golf Club, with raffle and auctions, raised at least £3,860 for Help For Heroes.

It is hoped the final total may exceed £4,000.

Club captain Brian Ritchie was delighted to captain a team comprising former Hearts footballer and now landscape photographer Donald Ford, with Flight Lieutenant Phil Williams and Sergeant David Hindsman, representing the brave men and women of the armed forces.

Fifty-one teams of four took part, and the prize-list comprised: 1, Crow Wood 3; 2, Crow Wood 2; 3, Emslie S. Collier; 4, The Four Fathers.

Nearest the pin were: 1, Davy’s Dunters; 2, The Tubby Cripples; 3, The Four Fathers.

Andy Petrie, the volunteer fund-raiser of the event, said he was absolutely delighted with the response to the competition, and the generosity of those who donated prizes.

He commented: “A huge thank you to all concerned. Although rain showers and breezy conditions made the course even more challenging, comments were very complimentary for the condition of the course, and facilities provided.”
