3rd of May and it’s ... a hole in one!

On a benign spring day 25 enjoyed the good conditions.

And what a showstopper we had today!

In the midst of an otherwise unspectacular round, Ian Quigley joined that elite and illustrious group of golfers who can boast a hole-in-one, with a lovely shot on the 7th which was witnessed by his playing partners and a cheering group on the 4th tee.

Ian's splendid feat was greeted with great acclaim in the clubhouse and, after a polite pause, a gentle hint that the customary ringing of the bar bell would be appreciated.

Ian has most graciously undertaken to fund the first round of drinks at the TAMS Christmas Lunch and despite his former position as a leading Edinburgh lawyer, Ian has not sought to limit his liability for his generous offer.


Today was a stableford competition and Eric Ward (red)arrowed his way to an excellent score of 25 points.

Second place was narrowly won by the venerable George Tucker with 23 points.

Ken Davey birdied the fifth, David Wallace the ninth and of course that man Quigley was nearest the pin at the 7th.
