Abernethy Golf Club welcomed the start of the club’s golf season with the Opening Match on Sunday 28th.
The traditional flag raising was performed by Captain, Rona Smith. 38 players took part in the match which was the Captain’s Team led by Rona Smith versus the Ladies’ Captain’s team led by June Clark. The format was a 9-hole Four Ball Better Ball with a shotgun start – which actually resounded from a wonderful antique maritime manually operated foghorn recently donated to the club by Helen Gillies. The match went to the last game which decided the win for the Ladies’ Captain’s team by 51/2 games to 41/2 games for the Captain’s team.
The course was in great condition and the new signage was much admired. So thanks to everyone involved in getting us ready for the season. Now for golf.
