Fill your boots!
Dear golf club member
The first ever national golf conference was staged in Edinburgh earlier this month has given the Board of Scottish Golf a unique platform to shape ‘The Future of Golf in Scotland’. The event brought together views and insights from a wide spectrum of the golf industry, debating the challenges we faces, the changes we require and the solutions we need to grow the game and build stronger clubs.
The positivity and energy generated in the room on Saturday 2 December was powerful and highlighted the value of bringing people together. We want to build on that momentum and communicate those messages to a wide an audience as possible.
The e-newsletter linked below contains all the presentations, video footage and collated feedback, which is now available for you to read and watch. We want all members to gain a better understanding of the challenges that we face in the game in Scotland as well as the opportunities to grow the game by working together.
Should you wish to provide your feedback on any of the Conference content or themes, please join the debate throughout this week on our Facebook page or send us an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
On behalf of Scottish Golf, I would like to take this opportunity to wish you a very Merry Christmas and our best wishes for a prosperous 2018.
Eleanor Cannon, Chair – Scottish Golf

The end of the club year is fast approaching and we wanted to let everyone know that Paul Guilcher will be retiring as Match Secretary and therefore we will be looking for some one, or a group of people, who would like to be involved in organising gents handicaps, competitions, matches and other golfing events throughout the year. If you would like to be considered to fulfil some, or all of that role, please let us know.
In total we will be looking for six volunteers for committee including the vital roles of convenor for property, house and social.
If you fancy getting involved in any capacity, starting from the AGM in February, we would be delighted to meet you to chat through all the ins and outs of committee life at Monifieth. Volunteers will always be the backbone of our club, which simply couldn’t function without people putting in a bit of time to help the club run well for everyone.
So, thank you to all the volunteers who have gone before and here’s to finding a new bunch of willing helpers to take the club forward in 2018. Email email@example.com for more information, or speak to any current committee member.
As from today Aileen Hunter takes over as Secretary / Treasurer from Peter Gardiner who is standing down due to personal reasons. Aileen who held this position a couple of years ago is welcomed back to a role in which her cheery personality, IT and communication skills are a great asset. The appointment will require to be confirmed at the AGM in February.
It is with sadness that we announce the death of former member and Monifieth Golf Club stalwart, Alex Stevenson.
Our condolences go to Mina, Billy and all the family.

On Friday we held our annual dinner and presentation of prizes. We had a great turnout and our prize winners, members and guests were treated to a lovely 3 course meal from Donna and Team. Ray and Jackie made sure everyone was well refreshed.
Paul Reid then took the floor and soon had everyone in stitches with a great series of jokes and one-liners, finishing with his speciality impersonations.
Thanks to all who attended and contributed to the success of a great evening.
The kitchen staff having a well earned rest!
