You may have heard that there are plans afoot to refresh the interior of the main lounge. We are in the process of finalising these plans and working out the best time to undertake the work. Once all has been finalised, we will issue an update to all members including a sneak peek at how the new lounge will look.
We are looking to recruit 4 more players to represent the club at St. Andrews 175th anniversary event on Saturday 19th May.
This is an inter-club stableford event where members of guest clubs will team up with St. Andrews members over the Castle Course.
Please contact Neil Gallacher if you are interested – email@example.com or 07557 375 854
Friday saw the annual Captain versus Vice-Captain match take place over 13 holes on the Ashludie.
In a break from tradition the event was open to all members and which saw several ladies take part with one of our youngest members, Monica Cecil, the star of the show!
On a cold but eventually bright spring evening, the match went down to the wire, typified by the father & son Gallacher v Hutcheon battle ending as a square game.
The overall score was 3.5 points each, and Vice-Captain Chris’ team came out on top on holes up. Thanks to everyone who played for supporting this event.
See below for full results and a cracking picture of Monica!
Arbroath Match Sunday 6th May
We are still a couple of bodies short for this. As guests of Arbroath, we get to play their course, as well as being fed after it; all for no charge. If you would like to take advantage of this invitation, and your name is not already on the list, please contact me as soon as possible. Either Neil or I will email team members with details of meeting times and so on later in the week. First tee off will be at midday.
Captain versus Vice Captain
Thanks to the 28 players who made this keenly contested event such a success. After finishing dead level, holes up were taken into account, and even then there was only one point in it. Congratulations to Vice Captain Chris Hutcheon on his team’s win.
Match play competitions
If you see a highlight next to your name on the draw sheet it means you are yet to pay. Please pay £1 for each highlight. If you recently put a pound in an envelope and printed ‘Halliday Graham’ on it, could you please get in contact to tell me your name?!
Nine hole competition
This was held on Sunday and, despite the lure of a chance to play the Championship course as part of The Open this year, the field could best be described as “quality rather than quantity”. Thanks to Ian Wylie for his work in setting this up. Thanks also to my playing partner Iain Newlove for carrying me into the next round.
Reminder of my contact details;
We are very sad to share the news of the death of Moira McMinn on Thursday 26th. Her funeral service will be held on Wednesday 2 May at 2.45 pm at Dundee Crematorium.
Our sympathies are extended to Graeme and the rest of the family.
Just a note to let you know that it’s absolutely fine for anyone to take copies of this publication home to read. It’s a decent magazine with some interesting articles and it’s placed around the club in both the lounge and the back bar.
What an amazing job The Natural Floor Company from Carnoustie has done with the dance floor in the main lounge. Get your dancing shoes looked out!!
A huge thank you is due to Fred Hutcheon and all the others (Alan Reid, Doug Mitchell, Graeme McMinn, Ian Wylie, Jim Ferrie, Rickie Long and Ian Newlove) for doing a fantastic job with the upstairs renovations including all of the clearing and demolition work, painting, sourcing and installing lighting and sourcing and laying carpets. Thanks also to Stuart French for donating a TV.
We are very lucky to have members willing to give their time and expertise in this way.
Don’t forget to fill in this year’s members survey. There are questions about golf, facilities, bar & catering and admin – so subjects relevant to all categories of membership.
One lucky person will win a McLeodies voucher for £25, so if you want to added to this prize draw you need to leave your name.
There are some paper copies behind the bar, so please let any of your friends that don’t have computer access know. For anyone who is capable it would be better for me if you fill it in online (saves Aileen filling it in for you!)
The survey will close on 12 April.
