The Craft Fair was a lovely and successful event. It was great to see the clubhouse with so many people in it… in the bar, the dining room, the television room and the function hall. Everyone enjoyed good food, good company and were able to purchase lots of beautiful craft items.
Many thanks to the stallholders for making their stalls look so beautiful. I hope it was a worthwhile evening for all of you. Special thanks for your very kind donations of prizes for the raffle.
Also, huge thanks to Johan, Alan Richardson, David Doig, the Catering team and the bar staff for their amazing help in ensuring the success of the evening.
This year’s Annual Prizegiving will take place on Friday 9th November at 7.30pm.
A full list of our trophy winners is displayed within the clubhouse or you can click here to view the list.
Prizegiving evening is always a great opportunity to celebrate your achievement with family and friends. Even if you are not among the winners come along and enjoy the celebrations, it’s a great night.
We appreciate that some winners will not be able to attend the prizegiving. Should this be the case for yourself it would be of great benefit to the Club if you would notify the office as soon as possible that you will not be able to attend.

The R & A are currently sending out hard copies to golf clubs and these will be available within our Professional’s shop soon.
Scotland finished off their Home International matches with a win over host nation Wales.
Kieran, partnered with Calum Fyfe, won their foursomes match this morning and although playing well in the afternoon singles lost to Paddy Mullins.
Scotland’s win secured third place over Wales with England beating the holders Ireland to win the championship.
Scotland will have been disappointed with their opening match defeat against Ireland, however, they nearly bounced back against England but were narrowly beaten 8 – 7 today at Conwy Golf Club in Wales.
Kieran also bounced back from his narrow defeats with a fine 3&2 win over England’s David Langley in the singles matches.
Tomorrows final matches see Scotland play the host nation Wales for third and fourth place with Ireland and England battling it out to see who will be champions.
We wish Kieran and Scotland good luck and continued good form tomorrow.
Winter Social Golf

Players should gather at the Pro Shop at 9:45am where balls will be tossed for partners.
The first tee time is 10:00am.
**Friday 14th December** : why not wear a Santa hat or other festive accessories? Coffee and mince pies will be organised for the après golf (there is a small charge for this). Even if you don’t want to play golf, why not come along and join in.
