Clan Macleod win Winter League

Clan Macleod win Winter League

The climax of the Car Hire Hebrides Winter League appeared to be in doubt last Saturday morning. It had been raining constantly for the best part of two days and was still raining when the first of the final day matches was due to begin. A delayed start eventually allowed teams to tee off some five hours later and, in keeping with the Hebridean weather pattern, the last contest of the winter season was played out in warm sunshine. The saturated conditions underfoot served only to confirm that, had it not been for the determination to end the Winter League on, rather than off, the course, there would have been no golf played last weekend.
