The 2017 Askernish Open was held on 25/26/27th August. With the weather being kind to us again it was a fantastic 3 days of golf out on the course.

History was made on Friday when James MacDonald equaled the amateur course record with a score of 70 to win the MacKenzie & Ebert Quaich. He followed this up on Saturday by winning the Askernish Open. Karen Ravenscroft added the Open title to the MacKenzie  & Ebert she won last year. On Sunday the Club Champion Donald MacInnes led his team to a famous victory in the Team Texas Scramble.

Well done to all the winners and thanks to everyone who attended, played and helped out at the competition.
