AN AYRSHIRE pair who play out of the same golf club have both recieved top honours this week.

Jack Broun and David Logan were given special awards at Turnberry Golf Club's recent AGM - though of a very different kind.

David is a true Turnberry stalwart, having joined the club in 1961 and first become a committee member half a century ago, on March 31, 1973.

He captained the club from 1980 until 1982 and during his time in this role he offered many members his support and wise counsel, based on his wealth of knowledge and a deep passion for the club.

At the AGM David was given the title of honorary president of the club, in recognition of his outstanding hard work, exceptional service and care for the club over the last 50 years.

David is a keen supporter of all the events on the Turnberry calendar in particular - in particular the club championship week, at which David is a regular presence on the first tee, seeing the competitors off with a message of encouragement.

David has earned the respect of many members and office bearers over the past 50 years, his warmth of personality and genuine fondness for Turnberry Golf Club is hugely admired.

His help and support is greatly appreciated throughout the club, and his enthusiasm and passion for all things Turnberry is exemplary.

He is also very highly respected by the hotel's owners and management where his knowledge and professional approach are much valued.

David, already a past captain and honorary member of the club, has many stories to tell about some of the former members and characters he has encountered over the years.

He was also actively involved in events like Pro Celebrity Golf, the Open Championships and many other tournaments which have been hosted at Turnberry.

David almost exactly 50 years to the day since he first joined Committee.

And David wasn't the only Turnberry member celebrating a top honour this week, as one of the opposite end of the spectrum earned himself a top prize this week too.

Meanwhile, at the other end of his golfing journey is David's Turnberry clubmate Jack Broun, who was crowned the men's Scottish Universities student champion at Moray Golf Club at the end of March.

Jack's opening two-under-par round of 69 was followed by rounds of 73 and 72 before a fantastic final round of 67, four under par, gave him a three-under-par total of 281 and a three-shot margin of victory over his nearest rival, George Cannon of Glenbervie.
