T T Sanderson 2017

T T Sanderson won 9 Border Championships and 15 Peebles Championships. His memory is celebrated by an annual trophy match with all the Border Clubs invited to send a team of 6 to play for the Trophy. This competition is different from the usual competition, it caters for all golfers. The teams are made up of two low, two middle and two high handicappers. Scoring is stableford and the sum of the 6 scores is added, to give a winner. Melrose, Hawick, Peebles, Kelso, Jedburgh, Innerleithen, The Hirsel, Galashiels. Torwoodlee, Langholm, Cardrona and Gala Bakers are all former winners.
This year 7 clubs answered the call and it is hoped that next year the entry can be doubled.
The Lauder team of SHANE PATON, JIMMY GILLIE, KENNY GILLAN, LEE MANDERSON, GRANT ROBSON and DOUGIE BAIN were 2nd on 191 pts.

LEGGS AUTUMN OUTING played 24th October

Thanks to Jim Jefferies for organising Lauder Elderly Gentlemen’s Golfing Society (LEGGS) annual autumn outing to Dunbar Golf Club. It certainly was a game of two halves as the score cards tell with a total of 206 points scored on the outward 9, and only 151 on the back 9 when facing a stiff westerly breeze. Jim proposed a vote of thanks to Dunbar greens staff and the catering for their excellent service which was enjoyed by all.

Captain Drew Kellett presented the prizes to:
Winner of The Paterson Trophy Matt Whiteford
2nd Keith Ackerman
3rd Bill Hollands.
The best outward 9 Ron Darling and the best inward 9 Jim Jefferies.

Musselburgh Quaich played on 19th August

After a season of tuition it was time for the Juniors to show what they were made of by guiding an adult around the course in the Musselburgh Quaich. The conditions were not ideal for this 9 hole Junior/Adult 2 ball foursomes as it was a rather windy Saturday afternoon  but all returned to the clubhouse dry and Safe oot and safe in!!!

The winner of the Musselburgh Quaich with a net score of 30.5 was Lewis Jeffs & Keith Robertson, closely followed by Colin Peters & Ian Scott on 31 and Cammy Robertson & Shane Paton 33.

Lauder Golf Club would like to thank all juniors who have turned up for the events over summer months along with family support and look forward to seeing the next generation of golfers keep Lauder thriving on the golf circuit.
