Club members, friends and family are invited to take part in the now traditional part of the club’s opening weekend celebrations – the Jim Carruthers Memorial Walk.
Held on Sunday 27 March alongside the Captain’s v Vice-Captain’s Team Challenge, the walk is held in memory of the hugely popular club stalwart Jim Carruthers, giving those not playing golf the chance to enjoy a fabulous walk round some of the best views in Peebles.
The walk will commence immediately after the remembrance ceremony from the Millennium Cairn on the 9th tee at around 11.10 am. It is open to anyone, including children, whether golf club members or not. Since we will be walking through farmland, dogs unfortunately won’t be allowed. The route will take us past Jedderfield Farm, leading to a short climb through a wooded area and on to Hamilton Hill for some stunning views, returning via Standalane Farm. The walk is about 4 miles and will last around 2.5 hours long including a snack break, fairly level but possibly muddy in parts.
Even if the golf on the day is postponed because of the weather, the walkers will brave the elements and will hopefully go ahead on the above date.
There is no definite plan to return to the clubhouse car park by a particular time. However, any walkers who wish to visit the clubhouse for food and refreshments are welcome to do so. A suitable change of footwear should be brought. Please note that non-members may need to be signed in when entering the clubhouse.
For further information, please contact organisers Gordon Sanderson (720511) or David Brown (721680).
As the date is Easter Sunday, the clubhouse is expected to be very busy so anyone wishing to book a table in the restaurant should contact Jazz or Yvonne on 720197 as soon as possible to make arrangements.
We look forward to your support!
