A 91-year-old member of a Ross-shire golf club has shown blistering form lately with a string of successes on a course he knows so well.

Arthur Ferguson has been a member at Muir of Ord Golf Club for some 41 years.

Last month, he won the Division 2 Section at the Senior Open.

And in the last six weeks he has also topped the scoring in the Friday Seniors at the club.

That has been no mean feat either as on each of those Fridays over 40 seniors took part.

He is pictured here this weekend after his latest success.

His success last month saw him win his handicap section of 74 entrants with a Stableford score of 39 points in a competition that was sponsored by The Higher Ground Group.

Take a tour of the course from above.

The course dates back to 1875 and, in th 1920s, was altered by the renowned golf course designer James Braid.

The Inverness to Wick and Kyle of Lochalsh railway line runs through the course adding to the golfers' need for accuracy on a number of holes. Wildlife abounds and players may regularly see red kites soaring above the fairways.
