Lady member Margaret Dunbar organises Skins Competitions for the ladies throughout the year - a fun format enjoyed by all where prizes are awarded hole by hole!.  To round off the year she extends an invitation to the men to join in the fun in the Christmas Skins comp and this year a total of 80 members took part.  With 20 teams of four teeing off to a shotgun start at 9.30am the course was full and the weather was glorious, if cold.

After golf the teams enjoyed a Christmas carvery and around £500 was raised on the day, which is used to fund projects within the club.

With best 2 scores to count we were helped (and hindered?) by temporary greens in operation and the results were:

Ladies 1st prize - (84pts) Margaret Dunbar, Margaret Evans, Judith Thornell & Valli Challenor
