Match and H/C AGM

Next Sunday (10th Feb) at 1.15pm is the date and time for this year's Mens Match and Handicap AGM. If you have anything to raise please contact John Heddle and he can add it to the agenda.

Winter League is coming...

Yes the icy blast of winter league is upon us but who is hero enough to snatch victory from the grasp of the Prince of Winter himself - SHarcus?!

Many brave souls before have tried and failed in this, the ultimate quest of endurance (that's just putting up with his banter by the way).

Will this year see a new hero emerge? Or will his darkness reign across the land for yet another season...

If you're man enough to try just turn up every Sunday at 10am as usual. Good luck!

Inverness Golf Centre Open

Our regular welcome guest to the club, Mel Douglas, was on hand to host the first ever Inverness Golf Centre Open and if the first one is anything to go by this will be weekend everyone will look forward to in years to come.

Mel sped his way up from Inverness with a van full of goodies to pass out to all the winners and also a brand new Titleist AVX ball to everyone who took part.

A stableford format was used but split by 12 and under handicap and 13 and over. In the lower section it was Denis Harvey who recorded the most points not only in this section but overall. Quite a feat for a low handicapper and for someone not used to playing this late in the season! His 42 points was 2 clear of Kirkwall's Steven Linklater and 4 clear of an in form Stan Seator and Willie Marwick.

In the higher section it was a real rogues gallery (you're exempt Edward)! Tommy Wishart overcame his old war wounds to record 39pts and pip John Heddle and Edward Brown. Also in close attendance were Eric Sutherland and Davy Garson.

The club owes a big thanks to Mel for supporting us with this new event and also fantastic to see such a well attended presentation.

Argos Open

Over seventy competitors took part in this year's Argos Open which is fast becoming one of the most popular events in the calendar thanks to the very generous sponsorship and extras that Ewan and Jenna supply - free doughnuts plus food and drink at the halfway house! Oh yeah, there was some golf too...!

It was early starter, in fact first out, Robbie Stanger who set the target with a nett 63. Normally this wouldn't hold out all day in decent conditions but a rather testing collection of rolling pins made this a solid target and got most of the field hot, crossed and bothered. Smart cookie George McKinlay used his loaf to plot his way around and match Robbie's 63 as did fellow McKinlay, Pete, whose 67 gross proved to be best on the day.

The dreaded countback was required to decide who won the dough and it was Robbie who won - the icing on the cake for his season?
