Opening Day of the Winter League at Stonehaven Golf Club

After another great Season of Medals, Competitions, Club Nights and a course in first class condition Stoney GC kicked off the ‘third’ Major of the year on Saturday.

The winter league started in perfect seasonal conditions.. a bright breeze, sun shining through broken cloud and the big greens in operation.

Our new tee at the first proved a real success with players watching their fellow competitors blast their first shots of the winter down the first (and in some cases ....... yours truly included...... out of bounds!!!)

It was fantastic to see a full car-park greeting us as we arrived. Play was a wee bit slow but I’m sure as we all get used to the fourballs things will settle down and the games will flow more easily. Hot steaming bowls of Carrot and Corriander Soup welcomed the hardy players back into the club. It will be good to see the clubhouse fill up with members enjoying a hot plate of soup and a game ‘deconstruction’ after play as we head into the winter.

Remember all ........ car sharing is a must with so many players .......... and it lets those of us who want to, have a couple of warming drams and a blether after our game
