Poor Weather in Scotland – No handicap for our golfers!

Tuesday, 20 September 2016 - Golf Society

Distillers’ golf has owered in Scotland this season, and Stephen Rankin is to be congratulated on winning the knock out nal from Campbell Evans on the King’s Course at Gleneagles, on what must have been one of the wettest days of summer. At the time of writing, the Plate nal between Tim Morrison and Peter MacKay has been postponed due to Tim being un t, and we all hope he will be back on the fairways again soon. We have all very much enjoyed the reports of the golf matches played in Scotland, not least as most of the matches had we Southerners positively salivating at the thought of playing off low handicaps on so many of the iconic courses selected for the games. A few Sassenachs, together with the Master, much enjoyed participating in the golf day and all the conviviality that went with it on the lovely Brunts eld Golf Links. There are now 86 active golfers in the Livery, with seven new members having been welcomed this year. If you have an interest in playing golf, off any handicap, and are not on the mailing list, please contact our Secretary Graham Franklin, ggfranklin3@aol.com

All golfers remain indebted to Secretary Graham Franklin for his superb efforts to ensure the smooth running of our ourishing society.
