Congratulations go to Graeme Laurie and Daniel Welsh after winning the Club Championship and Hole and Hole competitions.

In the Club Championship played over Royal Musselburgh and Royal Burgess, Graeme defeated Jim Gordon 4 and 3 having been 2 up after 18 holes played at Royal Musselburgh.

In the Hole and Hole played over Duddingston and Haddington, Daniel defeated Robin Graham 2 and 1 having been 1 up at the halfway stage played at Duddingston.

That concludes our 2020 season and I have attached  a list of winners from the outings and competitions held…..congratulations go to all.

Please be on the lookout for any potential outings or deals that you may see for our 2021 season and contact either myself or one of the council members.

I’ll be in touch next year with news of the AGM or virtual AGM I imagine it will be together with hopefully news on our annual dinner and presentation of prizes.

Thanks to everyone who has managed along this season and hope to see you again next year.


Yearly Competition Update

This just about wraps up our season with the only outstanding competitions being the hole and hole final to be played between Daniel Welsh and Robin Graham, as well as the Club Championship Competition where Graeme Laurie awaits the winner of the semi-final to be played between Gordon Taylor and Jim Gordon. I’ll be in touch with the results of both as well as a list of all our winners for the season soon.

As this the last outing report can I thank Alan Gray for arranging Winterfield as well as thanks again to Graeme Laure, Alan Rees, Daniel Welsh, Jim Gordon and Duncan Rae in arranging outings via their home courses which ensured, that despite the challenges of lockdown, we still managed to fit in all of our 7 outings for the year.

I’d also like to say a special thanks to Brian Gillespie for on top of his monetary duties, helping to arrange things on the day and also in helping to round up the scorecards and sort out the scoring.

I’d also like to thank Duncan Rae who fortunately we managed to get back online just in time to help with the spreadsheets for the annual competitions.

It was fantastic to see such good numbers attending all of our outings and to see new members Esther, Val, Jim and Calum join us as well as welcoming back ‘old friends’ Stevie, Gordon, Derek, John and Jani along at some of the events.

Look forward to seeing you all again for the 2021 season and here’s hoping things can return to normal and most importantly clubhouses are open for a pre and post golf drink!
