Coronavirus (Covid-19) update – W/C 14th September
THE COURSE IS OPEN FOR MEMBERS ONLY.
WE ARE STILL UNABLE TO ACCOMMODATE VISITORS BUT A MEMBER CAN BRING A GUEST
Tee times must be pre-booked and pre-paid
no later than 7:30pm the day before at the latest.
Why do I have to Book?
Scottish Golf’s Guidelines state a record of use must be kept for 6 weeks.
The purpose is for possible contact tracing.
On behalf of the committee
Following complaints from fellow members regarding pitch marks on the greens it is difficult to understand how a basic action of Golf Etiquette is not followed by the members. So can you please, now that we have had more rain and softer conditions in particular on the greens, REPAIR YOUR PITCH MARKS. This will satisfy ALL our members and reduce the workload of the greenstaff.
Also note that preferred lies are in force from Tuesday 1st September.They are applicable on the Fairways only, so mark your ball, lift, clean and replace within 6″ (15cm) of it’s original position.
We have also introduced a Local Rule of “If your ball is plugged in semi-rough (not thick rough), in agreement with your playing partner that your ball is plugged, you are able to lift and drop (without penalty) as near as possible to the original position”.
This local rule will be in play for as long as we are operating preferred lies.
Covid-19 might have prevented us from celebrating our Champions in the normal fashion but it did not prevent us from having our championship.
Congratulations to all the qualifiers on a great championship with some very close matches.
The Result was:
CLUB CHAMPION CRAIG LUMSDEN RUNNER UP BARRY NELSON
B DIVISION BILLY HUNTER RUNNER UP ALAN THOMSON
C DIVISION IAIN ROBINSON RUNNER UP DAVID THOMSON
LADIES SILVER VENETIA SCOTT RUNNER UP KATIE NELSON
LADIES BRONZE CAROLYN CAMPBELL RUNNER UP LYNN GRAY

A brief History
Lauder Golf Course is a nine hole golf course played off 17 tees, visitors are permitted to play off the back tees; making Lauder one of the fairest tests of golf in ‘The Scottish Borders’. Situated on gently sloping parkland providing a real challenge to your game, combined with stunning views of the Lauderdale District with the rich history of a course founded in 1896 it makes for an excellent days golfing in The Scottish Borders. With feature holes like ‘The Wood’ and ‘The Quarry’, it will test low handicap golfers; as well as provide a good days golf for those of us with more shots to play with. The initial layout of the course was supervised by Mr. Willie Park, Jnr. British Open Champion in 1887 and 1889. The professional course record of 70 is held by him and this has stood since 1905. The club have a very active membership which is drawn from all parts of the Borders and Edinburgh area, visitors are very welcome to accept our unique ‘Borders Hospitality’.
