Octogenarian Alan Wilkie celebrates in style

Alan Wilkie enjoyed a round of golf with his golfing buddies on Friday 3rd July then treated them all to a slap up meal in the clubhouse to celebrate his 80th birthday. 

After everyone enjoyed huge platefuls of bacon, eggs, sausages, tomatoes, beans, mushrooms, chips and toast, Gordon Fisher, on behalf of the group, wished Alan a very happy Birthday and thanked him for his hospitality. Describing Alan as a 'true gentleman' he wished him many more happy golfing years! 

Playing golf with Alan is a memorable experience. His interesting stories coupled with his dry sense of humour always make for a pleasurable round. However the highlight of any round with Alan is watching him swing a golf club. Alan possesses one the best swings in Peebles - one which most of us can only dream of emulating! 

On behalf of everyone at Peebles Golf Club - Happy Birthday Alan.
