Lady Captain Margaret Dunbar has organised Skins Competitions for the ladies for some years now - a fun format enjoyed by all where prizes are awarded hole by hole!. To round off this year she again extended an invitation to the men to join in the fun in the Christmas Skins - 72 members took part with 18 teams of four teeing off to a shotgun start at 9.00am. The course was full and the weather was good until the final couple of holes.
After golf the teams enjoyed a Christmas carvery from Paul Slater and his team before prizes were awarded. £461 was raised on the day, which is used to fund projects within the club.
With best 2 scores to count the results were:
