Anyone entering the John Grey Lounge (Mixed Lounge) will have noticed that there are several new pictures depicting scenes from the club over time. The archivists (Murray & David) have created a small flyer which gives some information relating to each new scene and is available to view from the link below:
The Club Championship and Jubilee Bowl finals took place on Sunday 1 October in gale force winds and driving rain.
Sandy Buchanan and John Ashton seemed unaware of conditions as they played superlative golf. The best of the excellent golf was possibly John’s eagle 2 at the 8th. The match went to the 2nd extra hole before Sandy sank the winning putt.
The Jubilee Bowl final between Jim Downie and Drummond Ramage also went beyond the distance with Jim Downie coming out on top at the first extra hole.
Again the players seemed to relish the awful conditions with the young seagulls joining in the fun by removing balls from the 7th and 13th greens.
A small but knowledgeable crowd followed the finals and showed their appreciation at the end of 2 closely contested matches.
Many congratulations from the Club to both winners and commiserations to both runners-up.
Hon President Alan McKinlay and Captain George Davidson made the presentations.
Both gentlemen played the match in a friendly and supportive way . The match was close with Sam never down.
Despite Stuart taking the match to the 18th, Sam clinched the win
Many congratulations to both players.
