Outing Report – Royal Burgess



Our prestigious fourth outing of the year was held at Royal Burgess Golf Club on Thursday 10th September with members competing for the Centenary Trophy.

The club was delighted to welcome new member Jim Clark along as well some familiar names in Gordon Duff, John Fanning, Jason Jeffrey and David Bryant. We were also pleased to welcome former Leven Golfing Society Captain Ninian Heron.

On a blustery day the course was found to be in wonderful condition and was a real pleasure to play.  Not everyone’s golf it has to be said was in wonderful condition but as the saying goes a bad days golf etc.

Former Captain Richard Torrance ended up our winner on the day with an impressive score of 80 less 13 for a net 67. The runner up on the day was Norman Baikie who shot an 80 less 11 for a net 69.  Richard and Norman’s 80 proved to be the best scratch scores on the day with Richard winning this on the better inward half score.

The team tri-am competition was won by Norman Baikie and John Fanning, playing in a pair due to late withdrawal they posted a fine score of 64.

The ball nearest the holes winners were: – :

5th – Jim Clark

8th- John Fanning

13th – Colin Mackie

Alan Gray recorded the only 2 on the day at the 8th.

Nearest in 2 at the 17th was won by Anthony Tan.

Our next outing will be held at Duddingston Golf Club on Friday 25th September and is a one round pm competition.
