Machars Young Farmers’ Texas Scramble

On Friday 7th June we welcomed 35 young farmers for a 9 hole Texas Scramble.

Some were playing Golf for the first time and they all seemed to have a great time.

With a score of 32, the winning team was Robbie Smith, Russell Morton, Ross Campbell and Liam Brawls.

We thoroughly enjoyed hosting them and hope so see them again.

Captain Vs Captain

What a beautiful day to start the 2019 Golf season.

 

The first ball was struck by our Ladies Captain Kelly Milven with a cracking drive down the first fairway. Men’s Captain, Barry Cluckie had a great drive and also found the correct fairway!

They were well supported by a great turnout of members.

The course was in excellent order thanks to our Greenkeeper, Matthew Robinson.

Good luck to all this season.
