2018 Season Beginner

The April Medal is on Sunday 1st April and will be the official start to the season (Tee Times available between 8 am-2 pm).
This opening Medal is sponsored by Drew Kellett and we will be playing for the Kellett Shield.
The entry sheet will go up week beginning 19th March but if you would like a time booked, text Ronnie on 07721 514914.
As most of you know we have built new tees at the 7/16th & 18th holes but unfortunately the adverse weather conditions have delayed their completion so these tees will not be ready for the start of the season. What is proposed is to play from the yellow markers for 7/16th & the 9th white marker for the 18th.
This is a short term solution until the new tees are ready.
Once again the medals will all be sponsored with £25 for 1st. £15 for 2nd & £10 for 3rd lowest scratch receives £20

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.
