Last weekend with the weather still very cold but dry, 30 hardy members turned out to play on opening day. the competition was very fierce between the Captain’s & Vice Captain’s teams however with only one of the Vice Captains team providing him with a winning score the Captain’s team galloped to victory. Following the match some superb soup &  sandwiches where provided in the clubhouse where everyone enjoyed a social occassion. Thanks go to everyone who provided food and made the day such a success.

Also last weekend our own Alex Long played and Captained the South of Scotland under 25 team. In the afternoon singles Alex was 3 down at the turn, however he then turned on the style to birdie 5 out of the last 8 holes  to win his match. Some great golf from Alex.

This Saturday the ladies played their Charity Cup in what was extremely bitter condition. Here Chris McIntyre continued her fine form to win with 27 points for 15 holes. Full results can be found at

Sunday was the gents McRobert Thistle Bogey cup. This provided some excellent golf with one of the highlightsbeing a Hole-in-One at the 4th hole by Terry Haine. For those interested I will leave Terry to explain how this was done!!! The winner on the day was Alex Long playing off 4 he was 5 up on the course, a magical round of golf from him.
