Lady Vice-Captain Margaret Dunbar organises Skins Competitions for the ladies throughout the year - a fun format enjoyed by all where prizes are awarded hole by hole!. But to round off the year she extends an invitation to the men to join the fun in the Christmas Skins and this year 76 members took part with 19 teams of four teeing off to a shotgun start at 9.00am. The course was full and the weather was kind.
After golf the teams enjoyed a Christmas carvery from Paul Slater and his team before prizes were awarded. Around £475 was raised on the day, which is used to fund projects within the club.
