With the weather holding up the club had a fantastic Opening day on the 24th. The Captain’s team as usual took on the Vice Captain’s team and the event was very well supported. Our Captain, Stuart Jamieson did the honours of driving himeself into (The Quarry) sorry I meant Office and the fun began. Although Stuart and the Lady Captain Linda managed to hold off the Vice Captains Marena & Gill the rest of the team were put to the sword and the Vice Captain’s team once again came away with the trophy. Following the golf, the members were treated to some excellent soup, sandwiches and cheese & biscuits. Much needed after the exertions of the day. Thanks go to everyone who worked hard to prepare the course and provide the food.

Competition during March was as usual fierce with the ladies Vice Captain, Gill Warnock scoring a fine net 70 to win the March medal. For this she was awarded a much needed handicap reduction. The ladies also played their Charity Cup on Saturday 30th March with the Lady Captain’s choice of charity for this year being “The British Heart Foundation”. A collection box will be on the bar during the season for those that wish to make a contribution to this charity. The winner of the Cup was again Gill Warnock.

The gents finished their Winter League during March and after an amazing late run the winner was Ian McCulloch. The first Cup of the 2019 season was played on 31st March and the winner of the McRobert Thistle Bogey Cup was David Aitken who finished 2 up on the course.
