Spring Outing kicks-off the new 2018 season

George Doherty picks up coveted Yellow Jecket

You won’t believe this …. we forgot to post this article when the Masters Spring Outing actually took place on April 1st! To be more accurate, I forgot – only a month late tho. And before you all start … it’s not an April Fool, George really did win! Anyway – a smaller than normal contingent turned up for the first outing of the new season, which was great because there wasn’t the usual moaning from those drawn to play in the final two or three groups. The excellent sunny weather produced a closely-fought contest with Nor Reid (AKA Tracker Man) coming a close 3rd and newcomer Craig Oliphant runner-up to the fantastic (on-the-day) Och George. After the golf it was back to HQ for the usual meal, courtesy of the Station Hotel followed by one or two soft drinks and the prize-giving. Other winners on the day were Dani Van Wyck – longest drive, Sec. Coutie – Nearest the Pin and Country Member, Bobby Brown – bringing up the rear! Oh yes, just remembered Stan Shepherd (AKA The Village Idiot) received a special prize of an Easter Bunny chocolate egg cos it was his birthday. A good day had by all – and apologies if we have the prize winners wrong. It was so long ago that no-one can remember who won what! Check-out more photos on Latest News in Pictures.

  1. I would like to point out that I have never hit the green on a par 3 hole so I don’t want to take credit for Dani’s excellent tee shot at the 16th. I did however hit a massive drive, on the fairway at the 8th thereby winning the longest drive by a ‘country mile’. I feel for Dani having the glory of the main prize of the day and bragging rights being snatched from him and would appreciate if the editor would take more care with details in future to avoid this type of thing in the future.


    • Dear Peter, thanks for your rather enlightening comment. May I remind you that, as the Match Secretary, one of your main roles is to assume responsibility for collating the results of all Club competitions and disseminating as required. In this instance, you may recall that the Editor contacted you last Friday evening requesting confirmation of the winner’s details but you failed to respond timeously. It transpires that at this time, you were infact at HQ watching Livingston FC condem your beloved football team to yet another season of first division football. Perhaps if you started supporting a successful Dundee Premiership team, then you may be amenable to attend to Club business in a more professional fashion.
      Yours cmonthedeesly,
      The Editor
