WE DID IT!!!
Having been nominated for two awards at the SGU Scottish Golf Awards we were delighted to have won the RBS Scottish Junior Club of the Year.
Facing stiff competition from the other shortlisted clubs we were chosen as the Club of the Year. This is a testament to the hard work and effort from everyone involved. From Barry Campbell that put together a coaching plan and for Jean that helped coach the Juniors, the juniors who worked really hard at their game, the parents that did all the running to and from the course. Our members that patiently put up with us while we trained. Thank you everyone!!!

2013 Club Champion
Alan Vickers retained the Club Championship for the 3rd successive season on 23rd June 2013. This has been the first time this accomplishment has happened since the days of Peter Haggerty and was Alan's 4th Championship in the last 6 years.
Arthur Bayfield stood between Alan and the trophy and put up a valiant display, however Alan proved too strong on the day. Arthur played well to reach the final having overcome some stiff competition in the previous rounds.
Alan was very humble in accepting the trophy and paid tribute to Arthur having reached Club Championship finals from the 60's until present day.
Congratulations to Alan who is a very worthy Champion who also seen off some strong challengers en-route to the final, well done Alan.
