2016 OPENING DAY

Captain Dennis J Brown opened the 2016 season playing against Match Secretary Ron MacLeod on a course which has dried out very well since the January flooding with run on the fairways and the greens in good conditions. The Captains game finished all square with Ron getting a good par at the 18th to save his game, with an overall match score of 14 1/2 to 9 1/2 the Captain won the Bill Fraser Trophy. Unfortunately the weather deteriorated as the day went on spoiling things for the later players, also the junior members doing a club and trolley clean and putting competition. Ben Anderson the Junior Captain would like to thank all the members that supported their effort with £226 raise for their funds, David Anderson (No relation) won the Putting competition. The Captain would like to thank all the volunteers that have helped clear debris off the course, the ladies that spring cleaned the dinning room and lounge, Dennis Hogg and the members that have helped refurbish the club house entrance all helping prepare for the season starting. Thanks also to following for making the Opening Day a successful day, Jim Sievwright and green staff for the good condition of the course, Paul & Mike for excellent meals, Ron for looking after everybody refreshment requests, Allan Knox for doing the starting, Mike Brown and Ron MacLeod for organising the day.
