The October outing was held at Dunbar Golf Club on Friday 11th October 2019.
For the first time since the early nineties RHGC returned to Dunbar Golf Club for our final outing of the year. Having hosted open qualifying events, the course was found to be in terrific condition and the stiff test of golf was more than matched by the stiff near Gale force wind on the day.
An excellent turnout of 24 players attended and the golf club was delighted to welcome along 3 new members in David Bryant, Kyle Wands and Alan Rees.
Playing a stableford competition and having won our first outing of the year at Gullane, Phil Millar continued his liking for Links courses by winning the Keeper’s Tankard with a fine total of 35pts. Runners up on the day with 31pts was James McCormack.
The ball nearest the holes winners were: – :
3rd – David Northcott (Guest)
5th – Jeffrey Bowles
10th – Thomas Grant
16th – Robin Graham
There were two 2’s recorded on the day courtesy of Jim Gordon at the 7th (an eagle) and Graeme Laurie at the 16th.
Closest to the hole in 2 at the 17th hole was won by James McCormack
The team competition was won by Jim Gordon, Brian Gillespie, James McCormack and Norman Maclachlan with 43pts.
As this is our last outing of the year, many thanks to all who attended each of the events. Information with regard to the presentation dinner and the AGM will be forthcoming in due course. If anybody has any suggestions of venues to visit in 2020 please get in touch with any member of the council.
