Scottish Summer and Autumn Outings

12/03/2012 at 19:24

Just looking at my calendar and wondering if there would be an appetite for an outing in early June (3rd or 10th)  I've no idea of venues at the moment and it might be difficult to get one at a reasonable price in June, but if I can establish that there would be sufficient interest, I can start looking around.

I could also look ahead to the first half of September for an Autumn event so if anyone is interested in that too, let me know.

If around Edinburgh/gullane area I'll be up for it. Weekends best for me

Maybe tricky around that time. There's a bit of a do on for Queenie.

Letham Grange near Arbroath is a steal at ??40 on the old course at the weekend. Very first Golf Magic golf day was there. I will probably be playing there in the next couple of weeks so will report back to the committee on course condition. Count me in.

June 3rd No good for us - Peterculter Mixed greensomes

I can make June 10th - but Mrs DIS is playing in her Club Championships

Only dates still free in early September weekends are 1st and 15th

Colin - have you looked at men's Opens - we could all eneter and also play for the GM trophy - as they give very cheap Greenfees

here's the place to look

That's an intersting idea, Dick.  There would be the drawback that we would not necessarily be playing together and for me, these outings are about that - a group of people I now know plus new faces to meet and get to know, playing golf together and getting together for food and a pint, a laugh and a wee presentation afterwards.

So maybe that is a good idea as an addition rather than an alternative?  What do others think?

I'm sure we could get  the club to let us play together - our ladies do that at the Duff House Royal ladies open

I was assuming a genuinely random draw was the norm as opposed to my "random" draws

I'm up for it any of the dates proposed.

I will need to get a handicap first though, is there a minumum standards requirement to qualify for entry?

Depends where we play - if we go for the Open option - then you must be an SGU club member to have a CONGU handicap

Nah you won't. Will they ask for it prior to play. Prob not. IF you played well and were in the prizes,  THEN they would. So you could still have a GM meet.
