- A Little Humour
We continue to receive rave reviews on the high standard of presentation of the course. These comments are being forwarded to the green staff. A heavy mowing programme will continue now until mid Autumn. The hedges will be trimmed shortly and a start made to the next path. The bunkers will begin to receive some much needed attention as well.
A reminder that we will be reviewing our Covid policies during December in time for implementation in the New Year.
Here is the menu for the coming week.

- Wednesday this week is an American Foursomes event, signup in fours please.
- Saturday 28th November is the annual St Andrew's Day 4 Ball competition. This event has been in the calendar for two decades and the sponsors of the event would really appreciate some enthusiasm from the players. Please see the following notice.
The Annual St Andrew’s Day competition will be held on 28th November as a 4 ball aggregate stableford. The donated prizes will be awarded as a bottle of Scotch each for the winning team, and also a bottle for the best individual score. The competition is for members only, but a maximum of two guests may be invited, and at least one member of the winning team must come in to collect the prize on behalf of the team, so if you have a good score, please contact the club later in the afternoon, or leave contact details so you can be reached in order to come in. There will not be a formal presentation, but the prizes can be collected on the day.
The event has been held for 20 years or so, and is now part of a campaign initiated by Nicola Sturgeon (alias Wee Kranky) to dispel the rumor that the Scots have long pockets and/or small sporrans. We (Ian McKenzie, Alan Turpie, Alan Lindsay, Ken Dobie, and Bob Young) await a similar response from the English for St George’s Day, the Irish for St Patrick’s Day, the Welsh for St David’s Day, the Kiwis for Waitangi Day, and, of course, the Australians for Australia Day.
There seems to have been a challenge issued here, is there a group who would like to rise to the occasion in the coming year???
- The final for the J W Draper Knock out will be held on Sunday 29th. The contest will be played between the teams of Jim Phillips and Tony Fitzpatrick and Norm Dodds and Dennis Neale. A referee is still to be allocated, anyone who wishes to officiate the contest should contact John Buchanan. The tee-off is mid morning.
- Wednesday 2nd December is the Ambrose event you've been waiting for. There will be no minimum requirement for tee shots, so.......... How low can you go!!!
- Saturday 5th December is the Monthly Medal and the first round of the Peter Tait trophy.
- Saturday 12th is the second round of the Peter Tait trophy and the Ted Box Trophy (Medal of Medals). To qualify for the Ted Box trophy you must have won a monthly medal during this (2020) calendar year, and be eligible to win a trophy event.

A recent study found that the average golfer walks about 1450 kilometres per year.
Another study found golfers drink, on average, 97 litres of alcohol per year, which means, on average, golfers get about 15 kilometres to the litre.
Kind of makes you proud. I almost feel like a hybrid!
Now Go Out and Enjoy a Game of Golf !!!
