5th October

Our winter Stableford season began on a lovely autumn day with the trees looking glorious in their autumn colours.

There was a tie on 18 points between Brian Robson and the last man out, Doug Coltman.

Doug won on a countback.

Jim Walker was nearest on the 7th and both he and Graham Mackie birdied the 7th.

Results for 14th September and ... another significant birthday!

Only 20 played this morning the recent wet weather no doubt putting some off. Steve Farrar maintained recent good form with a net 31 to take first spot, David Wallace taking second with net 34. Warner Hardie was nearest at 7. 

 

Jim McAuslin ,one of our founding TAMS, has celebrated his 90th birthday-he kept it very much under the radar.

 

TAMS will be represented by 6 players at the Sponsors' Day.

End of the Meteorological Summer TAMS

There were only 20 players on a lovely summer's morning. General scoring was again poor but Ken Bowie, who last played in March and has had major surgery, returned a remarkable net 31 for first place. John Napier continued a good run of form with net 32 for second. Sandy Macfarlane birdied the first and John Forsyth was nearest the 7th.

 

Next week's stableford will be playing for the Ken Bowie Salver.

Results 17th August

The good conditions of a beautiful summer's morning were not reflected in the scoring, which was very poor. Recently sub-30 scores were required for a top 5 finish.To-day 34 was the lowest score shared by Ken Davey and Ronnie Watt, Ken winning on countback. Harvey Robertson recorded the only birdie at 9 [his sartorial choice for the morning being much admired!] while George Langlands was nearest the pin at the 7th having lost his glasses-there is a message there somewhere. 29 played.

It doesn't get much better! 22nd June

Wow - what a spectacular day!!

On a day when the golf course was looking truly magnificent, the 28 starters responded with an equally magnificent display.

Leading the field to rapturous acclaim was our 'Elder Statesman', Steve Baczkowski, who won with a splendid nett 27 (gross 49).

He was closely followed by three on nett 29.

After a countback, second was our summer Kiwi visitor, Donald Millar, who insists that he is a Lions supporter.

On top of that we had four birdies - Sandy Macfarlane (who lipped out for eagle), Steve Farrar and Bill Hardcastle all birdied the ninth (despite the acting coordinator trying to argue that in the conditions the ninth was really a par 4); and Gordon Fisher birdied the fifth.

To complete the ball feast, Chris Beaumont was nearest at the seventh.

Well done guys!

A bit wet for June but it didn't deter Mr McAuslin

It was a morning of very soggy cards and extremes of scoring. The conditions did not deter one of our founding [ie oldest] TAMS Jim McAuslin who won on countback from David Parker and Tony Kinder all on net 30. David was second and also nearest at the 7th,converting the birdie opportunity. Gordon Fisher also birdied 7 while Alistair Lambie birdied the 4th.

 

Hopefully we will all dry out before next week!

June 1st - Drew Haldane Quaich winner announced!

To-day the winner of the Drew Haldane Quaich was confirmed. This goes to the player with the 4best stableford scores over the winter. Chris Beaumont won with 75 points just ahead of George Tucker with 74 points.

 

30 players turned out for what was a high scoring morning. Harvey Robertson won with 25 points with Richard Edmonds second on 24 points[beating Joe Nisbet on countback].

Richard was also nearest the pin at the 7th while Chris Beaumont birdied the 7th.

Results for May 18th and 25th

There were many hot on their heels with 32.

David Wallace birdied No 9 and George Langlands was nearest on No7.

 

TAMS result for Thursday 25th May:

This was easily the hottest day of the year so far.

On beautiful greens and running fairways the large turnout of 26 toiled in the hot sun and did not manage a single birdie.

Bill Hardcastle however showed us all how to play and won with nett 31 and was also nearest at the 7th.

A resurgent Chris Beaumont maintained his run of good form and was second on 33 despite the handicap reduction after his win last week.

May 11th and the winner is ...... wait until Christmas!

To-day we played for the Roddy McAlpine Gavel, the winner of which will be revealed at the Xmas lunch.

 

Birdies were recorded by David Wallace [3rd and 9th] and Warner Hardie [ 9th]. Brian Taylor was nearest at the 7th.

 

David was the star of the TAMS team which played in Tuesday's Peebles Youth Trust Charity Day winning nearest the pin at the 1st and 12th holes.
