Something for the weekend…

Just a reminder that the Medal is closed for the Scottish Boy’s but you can still try to get a tee time on the Ashludie course.

Just so there is no confusion… the Saturday sweep will be 50p… no 2’s on the ‘Ludie.

Craig Medal: Saturday

There could be a huge entry for the Craig medal and since this is decided on best score over the season, a top score is likely on Saturday.

A Y Barrie: Sunday

The first round of the AY Barrie is on the Medal on Sunday with the Ashludie Shield on the ‘Ludie.

Scott and Neil Stay On Course

The top two seeds, Ewan Scott & Bradley Neil at the Scottish Boys Championship, kept their title bids on course on a windy fourth day at Monifieth Golf Links. The quarter-finals and semi-finals are played on Fri, on what promises to be an exciting day. Entry at Monifieth is FREE so come along and enjoy the matches. The final will be played over 36 holes on Saturday. Come along and you will be able to say “I saw him win at Monifieth” when they make it as pros.

Texas Scramble next weekend

Due to weather and lack of playing opportunities with the Boy’s Championship, the Club has been a wee bit quiet and entries for the first Texas of the year has been slow. Even if you are not playing this weekend, please get down and put your enry on the sheet…

The entry sheet is on the noticeboard in the Locker Room. Still time to get your name down. Why not bring a guest with your free voucher?
