My first task this week is to thank Brian Duguid for his hard work during the week clearing leaves on the course. Because of his hard work, those playing the course will now find it easier to find their ball and play shots from the cleared areas. It is also good to see Jeff Sutcliffe back on the scene with his Christmas Quiz.

On Saturday the Ladies went out in the fog and frost. The conditions did not deter Erica Porteous who shot a fine 32 points to win for the second week in a row.

Sunday was the club’s Christmas Competition. The compeditors certainly enjoyed the golf, mince pies and shortbread afterwards. Thanks go to Erica Porteous & Elena Rogers for arranging the food. Some notable scores came from Marena McClymont & Erica Porteous who returned 29 points and Elena Rogers who shot 28 points. Brian Porteous completed a good day out for the family with a fine 33 points. Larry Jones also had a great day picking up £13 for the only two on the day.

Your Captain & Committee would like to wish all our members a Happy Christmas and a Prosperous New Year.
