Gents Open

Today’s Gents Open produced some great scoring from a number of players, in particular Liberton’s Gregor Emmerson who’s lowest scratch score of 66 also gave him the lowest handicap score of 62.

Another highlight was a hole-in-one at the 11th from Duncan Ireland of Duddingston who needless to say won the nearest the pin prize at that hole.

Weather wise the day was very mixed with a few heavy showers but a large field of 140 players appeared to enjoy themselves and everyone we spoke to after their round could not praise the condition of the course highly enough. Thanks for this must go to our Greens staff who again have worked very hard over a very busy period to ensure that the high standard they set themselves and achieve are maintained.

Thanks must go to Mark and John in the shop who not only did great work in dealing with the many last minute entries received through our online booking system but also in recording and processing the scorecards.

These events also require a lot of preparation and for that thanks must go to David and Ailsa in the office and Iain Seath. Thanks also to our starters Les Sclater, Denys Flaherty, Tommy Paterson and Brian O’Neil.

To the bar and kitchen staff many thanks for looking after all the players and also showed great composure when a number of our ladies arrived near closing time and decided to have a glass / bottle or two of wine on returning earlier than expected from their outing to Aberdour.
