Huge congratulations to Team GB in the mens curling at the Winter Olympics. Team GB (Bruce Mouat, Grant Hardy, Bobby Lammie, and Hammy McMillan) won GB’s first medal of the Games. They won the silver, having had a tough and tense game against the Swedish team. Both teams played well and it all went down to an extra end to decide the final outcome. Nerve-shredding stuff.
Skip Bruce Mouat is a previous member of Abernethy Golf Club and his father, Bob, is a current member. Well done Bruce and team, we’re proud of you.

It was a great day at our Texas Scramble on Sunday. Our bribery of a free ice cream worked and we had a lovely mix of participants, with families and visitors turning out in numbers as well as regular members. Twelve teams took part (some more competitively than others) but in the spirit of the event everyone won a prize and went home happy.
The week saw the Club Championships being contested with 36 holes played over 2 days at the weekend. 19 men and 8 ladies competed for the respective trophies. Scott Waitt led the men’s field by 5 strokes after Round 1, scoring Gross 72, he continued his steady play in Round 2 with a Gross 73, to take the crown by 10 strokes with a score of 142. Hot on his heels on both days was Kevin Strathdee with a Gross 77 in Round 1 and Gross 78 in Round 2. Alex Donald was in 3rd place with a Gross 161.
Junior Member Thomas Dingwall (17) won the 1st Handicap trophy on net 131 with two excellent scores of 67 and 64, the latter 2 strokes below par. 2nd place in the handicap event, only 2 strokes behind the winner, was John Swinden (22) with a net 133, scoring a Day 1 net 63, 3 strokes below par, and a Day 2 net 70.
In the Ladies Championship, Sheena Hendrie shot a Gross 95 in Round 1, to lie 5 strokes behind Day 1 leader, Susan Swinden on Gross 90. Sheena kept her cool, clawed back the 5 strokes and added another to win with a Gross 182 winning by 1 stroke from Susan. Susan’s Round 1 Gross 90 and Round 2 Gross 93 gave her a final score of 183.
The Ladies’ 1st Handicap trophy was lifted by Jean Gordon (31) with net 70 and 74. The runner-up in the Ladies’ competition was June Clark (23) with net 74 and 71.
The Ladies Championship full result is here. And the Men’s Championship full result is here.
In the Junior Championships later in the week, it was a family affair with keen competition between Luke, Michael, Joseph and Thomas Dingwall, grandsons of John and Helen Dingwall. The 4 boys played in the 2-day scratch competition for the Junior Championship trophy over 36 holes. Thomas and Michael were tied on 80 after Day 1. Thomas kept up his steady play with an 82 on Day 2 to claim the Championship by 5 strokes over runner-up Michael.
We were delighted to hold a Green Health day on Sunday 4th July. This was part of Highland Green Health Partnership and the aim of the day was to help individuals improve their health, well-being and resilience by enjoying and appreciating the natural environment.
The day started with members provided refreshments and delicious home baking to visitors as well as those from the local Young at Heart group. There was much reminiscing whilst looking at photographs from Golf Memories, booklets telling the history of the golf club and a selection of related books kindly donated by the Bookshop in Grantown on Spey. Everyone enjoyed the craic.
Despite the forecast the weather was sunny and stayed fair for the Get into Golf session which followed when David Grindell, Roving Pro, took a group out on the course for some coaching while 3 younger children enjoyed learning how to use a 7 iron and a putter on the practice green. At the same time 4 members of Highland Disability Sports teamed up with their helpers and members of Abernethy Golf Club to play in a fun Texas Scramble. They had played in the Twa Bridges competition earlier in the year and were very happy to return.
The next event was a Nature Ramble led by Tessa Jones and was enjoyed by all who participated.
Many thanks to all those involved – one of the benefits is that the club now has new sets of golf clubs purchased with funding from the initiative which are available at a reasonable cost for all who want to try golf.
This Green Health activity/event was made possible with funding from Highland and Cairngorms LEADER LAGs (The European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development: Europe investing in rural areas) and was initiated by The Highland Green Health Partnership which aims to encourage more of us to make use of our local green and blue spaces.”
I didn't take up golf until I moved to Nethy Bridge 7 years ago. I was given a very warm welcome by everyone I met at the club and was encouraged to get a handicap. It's a challenging but beautiful course that still tests me every time I play it."
