This year’s Annual Dinner and Presentation of Prizes saw the awards dominated by father and son pairing Brian and David Morton. For the second season in a row, David picked up the Arthur Christieson Trophy as Scratch Club Champion. Handicap Champion this season and winner of the Dave McNicoll Cup is former Club Champion Iain Burnett. Brian and David Morton picked up the Enfield Cup (Fourball), the Dunbar Cup (Foursomes) and the inaugural Greensomes tournament award. Dave Meek is this year’s Senior Champion and recipient of the Country Members Cup. The Winter Trophy was picked up by Stewart Hunter and the Kiwi Shield, competed for at our annual away-day tournament was won by Andy Gilbride.
Vice Captain Elliot Davie, once again kept a firm but highly amusing grip on proceedings and guest speaker Bob Valentine, a former top flight national and international football referee, regaled our members and guests with numerous tales from his long career on (and off) the pitch. Representatives of the Caledonia, Carnoustie, Dalhousie, Mercantile golf clubs and Panmure Business Club joined members for a highly entertaining evening.
