29th August Results

The much-anticipated competition for the Peebles Putter took place on a pleasant morning with 21 hopefuls demonstrating their putting skills.

The result will be announced at our annual lunch, but suffice to say there was a clear winner with a most impressive scarcity of putts.

Play was pretty good for the weekly medal and there was a tie on nett 30 between Warner Hardie and George Cunningham, with Warner just winning on a detailed countback.

Ken Davey was nearest at no 7 and Ken also birdied no 5.

Members are reminded that on 5th September we will compete for the Ken Bowie Salver - a 5-club Stableford competition.

TAMS Results for August 22nd

Only 4 of us played well, the rest being hidden behind a veil of discretion.

Warner Hardie and Ronnie Watt scored nett 31 and tied for first place on nett 29 were Alister Lambie and Chris Malcolm.

Alister won on a count-back, while Chris birdied the 9th.

Gordon Fisher graced a high-scoring outing with a well-played birdie on the 9th and Ken Davey was nearest on the 7th.

Brian Robson and Ken Davey defied the elements both recording net 31's with Brian taking the countback.

There were no birdies and David Wallace repeated last week's success being nearest at 7.

Congratulations to Andy Tucker and Ian Tate for their 1st and 2nd in Tuesday's Senior comp.

TAMS results for August 8th

After missing a week due to the Senior Open, the TAMS got back into action.

Eighteen of us enjoyed a lovely morning sandwiched between the dire days of foul weather which are causing havoc in our summer season.

The scoring was good with many players playing well no doubt due in no small part to the excellent condition of the golf course.

Sandy Macfarlane and Wilson Struthers tied for first place on 22 points with Sandy winning on a countback.

Tony Kinder who might have won had he played his favourite hole (the ninth) rather better still managed a fine birdie at the 7th. Warner Hardie birdied the ninth and David Wallace was nearest at no 7 (but he missed the putt!!!).

TAMS support Junior Section

24 players turned up to brave the heavy showers forecast. Scoring was generally good, Brian Taylor and Alistair Lambie returning net 29 with Brian sneaking the countback. Bill Hardcastle birdied the 2nd and the 8th, Sandy Macfarlane birdied the 9th. George Tucker was nearest at 7 for the 3rd time this season.

Congratulations to Gordon Fisher who won the Gents Senior Stableford on Tuesday and well done Ken Davey who had an ace during a bounce game last week.

Many thanks to Captain Ross Duncan for giving us an insight into his role as Captain and speaking candidly about the challenges facing Peebles [and many other clubs] . Thoughts on how the various issues might be addressed were openly aired.

Our elder statesman Steve Baczkowski-93 years young-presented this year's TAMS cheque for the Clubs juniors to Captain Ross.


TAMS Results 27th June

With a lovely summer's morning and the course in "Championship" condition good scoring was expected. Unfortunately it was not delivered with 22 players scoring net 30+ with seven on net 33. Jim McAuslin [one of our elder statesmen] returned net 27 to take first place from a refreshed George Langlands who had net 29, and also birdied the 6th. Ronnie Watt was nearest at 7 with what he described as a lovely shot-tho' this was disputed by Brian Robson!

Results for 20th June

On a blustery morning which was far from the promised forecast we had 23 starters.

Nothing however got in the way of this weeks winner, Doug Coltman, who won with a record nett score of 23.

A distant second was David Wallace on nett 30 who won on a count back from Roger Key.

Ian Tate was nearest on no 7 and Bill Hardcastle birdied the 7th.

We did have another birdie today - a cuckoo who serenaded us up the 4th and along the 5th with its distinctive haunting cry.

TAMS results for D-Day 6th June

On the 75th anniversary of D-Day, we also enjoyed a brief 'weather window' which allowed 24 of us to play in warm and pleasant conditions.

The golf course was in excellent condition although our scores did not really reflect how well the course was playing.

In a tightly packed field, Brian Robson took first place with 22 points and Ronnie Watt edged John Napier, David Wallace and Ian Tate on a count-back for second place with 21 points.

Surprisingly, there were no birdies today.

Warner Hardy was closest on No 7.

We also congratulated Ian Tate on winning the Seniors Stableford this week with a massive 42 points.

Then we had a real seniors moment.

Several of our members were schoolboys on D-Day and in return for a ball they each gave us their own recall of that momentous day.
