May Outing Report – Gleneagles

Register House Golf Club’s latest outing was held at Gleneagles on Wednesday 24th April.

Having visited a combination of the King’s and Centenary Courses the year before, the Golf Club was delighted to once again have the opportunity to return to this prestigious venue to play the shorter but challenging Queens’ Course.

Sadly the recent good weather failed to last and woolly hats were the order of the day with pints of lager at the requested 10th hole stop being replaced by hot cups of Bovril!  The weather however failed to detract from the overall enjoyment and success of the outing.

The winner of the Jubilee Vase with a fantastic Stableford score of 41pts was Alan Gray.

The runner-up was Colin Mackie with a score of 33pts.

Ball nearest the hole winners are as follows:

2nd Hole          –           Bob Colquhoun   5th Hole     –           Richard Torrance

13th Hole          –           Norman Baikie     14h Hole    –           Gordon Taylor

17th Hole        –           Greig Mitchell      Nearest in 2 at the 18th was Thomas Grant

2s on the day were scored by Duncan Rae and Dave Simpson at the 5th, Greig Mitchell and Stevie Lugton at the 17th and Thomas Grant at the par 4 15th.

The team event was won by Jim Gordon, Kevin Stewart, Greig Mitchell and Peter Whitecross with a full handicap stableford score of 49pts.

April Outing Report – Gullane 3

Our first outing of the year was held at Gullane Golf Club on course No.3 on Friday 5th April 2019

Designed by Willie Park Jr, the course celebrated its centenary in 2010 and has matured to become a much loved destination for many visiting golfers. Favoured with the same impeccable links turf as its older neighbours No. 3 is maintained to the same high standards from tee to green. This is no soft option, despite a lack of yards the course still present the classic Gullane challenge of strategic course management, true running greens and numerous bunkers to be avoided – and all played out in stunning scenery.

On a sunny but blustery day Phil Millar won the David Bryce Trophy in the morning with a net score of 59, Norman Baikie was second with a net 62.

Best Scratch Score on the day was Duncan Rae with a 73.

Ball nearest the hole on the par 3s was as follows:

2nd Hole James McCormack
8th Hole Ben Irvine
11th Hole Graeme Laurie
13th Hole Colin Mackie
15th Hole Duncan Rae

 

Nearest the hole in 2 at the 18th was won by Norman Baikie.

2s were recorded by Duncan Rae at the 3rd and 11th, Graeme Laurie on the 11th, Greig Mitchell on the 13th and Richard Torrance on the 4th.

In the afternoon Tri-Am competition Phil Millar continued his good form to team up with Jim Gordon for a winning score of 57.

RHGC were delighted to welcome 1 new member to the club Lewis Hutchinson.

The next outing will be held at Gleneagles Golf Club on Wednesday 24th April.

May Report – Gleneagles

Register House Golf Club latest outing was held at Gleneagles on Thursday 26th April. In a first for RHGC in recent history we played over 2 courses concurrently (Kings and Centenary).

Gleneagles has hosted an impressive list of events in its time and can now add an RHGC outing to its midst. Whilst we played the same location which hosted the 2014 Ryder Cup (Centenary) I am sure we played in a different way to Rory, Sergio, Dustin et all…

Despite the interchangeable weather the location and course condition made the outing a success if not a little bit long for some players. However with 30 RHGC members playing it was a well organised and marshalled event which I would like to take the opportunity to thank everyone who played a part.

The winner of the Jubilee Vase with a Stableford score of 31 was Ryan Sloan, a fantastic score – congratulations!

The runner-up was Cameron Martin with a score of 30.

Ball nearest the hole winners are as follows:
Kings 5th Hole – Greig Mitchell
Kings 16th Hole – Norman Baikie
Centenary 6th Hole – Thomas Grant
Centenary 10th Hole – Ryan Sloan

2s of the day were all scored on the Kings Course by Elaine Wilson (5th), Chris Hislop (11th) and Norman Baikie (16th).

The team event was won by Alan Gray, Chris Hislop, Steven Lugton and Kevin Stewart with a score of 43 (BIH).

Our next outing will be at Musselburgh (Monktonhall) on Friday 1st June, consisting of a round of golf and 2 course dinner. Further details will be published in due course. Please see below for some photos from the day.
