17th Gordon Law Professional’s Day – 11 July 2015

UPHALL GOLF CLUB

Professional’s Day

The 17th Pro Day is only a few days away so here is a quick update of the events taking place on Saturday.

The first t-time is 7am with BBQ food available at this time.

We have organised a masseuse (Muriel Steedman) who will be available for differing massages throughout the day.

Club Kleen will be in operation outside the locker room area all day with the reasonable price of £5 so please take advantage of this as the “clubs deserve a clean now and again”

We will have a NEW electronic scoreboard on show for the first time with all the scores updated for you in a leaderboard fashion.

The scoreboard has been sponsored by Club Member Richard Sneddon in memory of his late father John “Apple” Sneddon who was a character for many years around the Club.

The board will be displayed around the Club on multiple TV`s, all of which have been donated by the Keydraw.

Presentation of Prizes will take place at 8.30pm with prizewinners requested to attend if possible.

Entertainment in the form of a disco will take place after Presentation of Prizes until 1am.

Please attend if you can as it`s sure to be a fun day and evening.

Many thanks.

Hopefully this sets the Squad up for another successful season and we’ll keep you posted as the season progresses.
We’re grateful for the continued support of Aberdein Considine, Solicitors as we continue to develop the Junior Section, our full members of the future.

Big Al notches ace at the 3rd

It’s only early in the season and hot on the heel’s of Dave Meldrum’s  age-beating exploits a couple of weeks back, Alan Wardlaw has got his season off to a flier with a hole in one at the 3rd in Saturday’s Ryan McWilliams’ Stableford Competition.

Playing with Robert Beveridge and Alan Quinn, Alan’s weapon of choice was a 4 iron (he maintain’s the wind was against).

It’s the first hole in one of the season in competitive play and the first one in a weekend competition since 2013.

Great stuff Alan!
