New Club Caterer – Introduction

As previously intimated to members the Club have now appointed a new Caterer. David Cree who runs Bankhouse Catering was the successful candidate following our recent recruitment exercise. David impressed the Council with his openness and new ideas of how he hopes to provide the membership with a good range and selection of food and also wishes to provide various events and evenings at the Club to enhance our culinary experience. Attached is a small introduction from David about himself and his team and also a photograph so everyone gets to know who he is.

The Club hope that all members will support David and his team which will hopefully be the start of a good working relationship for both Club and Caterer.

Bankhouse Catering Introduction

Liberton members strive in the Alliance

Congratulations to Scott Fraser and Keiran Cantley for their successes in the East of Scotland Alliance meeting at Royal Musselburgh on 18th October. The field of 90 players included 13 professionals and 3 trainee professionals.

Following solid rounds both players recorded winning scores in the Handicap and Scratch competitions.

Scott Fraser won the Handicap Prize along with the Andrew Oldcorn Trophy by recording a 72 less 4 handicap for a Net 68

Kieran Cantley recorded a scratch 68 and was required to share the prize with Lloyd Saltman after the two players couldn’t be separated through countback.

In the order of merit both players are very much in the hunt with Kieran lying 2nd in the scratch and 3rd in the handicap, with Scott sitting 2nd in the handicap section.

Good work lads and hope you keep it going throughout the season.

Liberton Seniors Championship

Congratulations to Neil Plenderleith and Douglas Hewat on winning the inaugural Seniors Championship and “B” Division Seniors Championship.

Today’s finals concluded the week long match-play stages of the tournament which, notwithstanding the various medical check-ups, injuries and falls, was a great success.

Neil edged out Brian O’Neil at the last hole to win the Seniors Championship and the George Anderson Hunter Trophy. The trophy was kindly donated by George’s son John and we felt it fitting to ask John to present the trophy.

Douglas’s win over Charlie Love was a little easier but just as hard fought in order to win the “B” Division Seniors Championship and the Hugh J Lawrie Quaich which was kindly donated by Hugh’s son Alister who presented the trophy to Douglas.

Many thanks has to go to George Inglis and his team of Bob Bee and Bill Kent for all their work in the implementation and organisation of this championship which proved to be very popular with the match-play extremely competitive but, as always, played in such a friendly manner.

Well done all competitors this week.

Ping Scottish Mixed Championship – 2

Congratulations to Claire Hogg and David Rennie for a great display in the Ping Scottish Mixed Championship played last Monday over the Queens course, Gleneagles.

Claire and David scored 37 points for a top 20 finish and thoroughly enjoyed their day courtesy of Ping, Scottish Golf and Gleneagles. An outstanding score of 47 points by the team from East Kilbride Golf Club won the trophy.

Claire and David had such a good day that they have already offered to represent Liberton again next year, however, they will have to win the qualifying event, which I am sure will have a much bigger entry next time given the superb day of golf on offer, by a good enough score to be in the top forty from all clubs in Scotland.

Well done again!!
