Take Part in the Jim Carruthers Memorial Walk

Millennium Cairn.jpg

Peebles Golf Club’s opening remembrance ceremony for the 2018 season will take place at the Millennium Cairn (the 9th tee) at the above time.  All those wishing to participate, golfers and walkers, are requested to arrive no later than 11.00 am.  

Immediately after the ceremony, at around 11.10 am, the Jim Carruthers Memorial Walk - a popular addition to the opening weekend's activities in memory of the current Vice-Captain Gavin Carruthers' late father Jim - will begin for those who are not taking part in the Captain’s v Vice-Captain’s golf match.  The walk is open to anyone, including children, whether golf club members or not.  On this occasion, dogs will be allowed.  From the cairn the route will go along March St, Venlaw High Road towards Glenbield, crossing the burn and returning via Soonhope, Kerfield and the Gytes.  Total distance about 5.5 miles (2.5 - 3 hours).    

Even if the golf is postponed because of unplayable conditions, a walk will hopefully go ahead on the above date.  We do not intend to organise a walk on any subsequent day.

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.
