The first Open of the 2016 season was held on the 26th March with an excellent entry of over 90 players in a mixed field. the weather was resonably kind and the scratch prize was won by John Forbes of Muir of Ord with an excellent 69. The Class 1 winner was our own Captain William MacBeath with a nett 66. The winning lady was Michelle Finnie of Royal Aberdeen with a scracth 83.

The course received several excellent comments regarding the condition including an opinion that it was in the best condition of any course in the North of Scotland. Congratulations are due to Alexander MacDonald and his team.    

William Macbeath was elected Captain of the Club at the AGM on the 25th February. Alasdair MacDougall has been elected as Treasurer and Andrew Sutherland was elected Secretary. Congratulations to all three and we wish them the best of luck in their new positions.

The Club are extremely grateful to the retiring Captain John Davies and long standing Secretary and Treasurer Robert Beaton both of whom have been instrumental in taking the club to where is stands now. Robert is being honoured with being made an Honorary Life President for his sterling service over more than half a century.
