The Winter League is gathering momentum with only three weeks remaining.

While it’s not quite the Race to Dubai, competition is fierce in all three leagues with players jockeying for position to claim a place in the finals. The current standings are available on the ClubV1 Members Hub, our website and the noticeboard.

It was good to see a lady feature at the top of the leaderboard in the Nett Doubles competition. Fresh from an extended break to the other side of the world, Fiona Lamont, playing with her husband, Gordon, managed to add another hole in one to her portfolio during their low scoring round. This time it was on the 5th hole using a 5 iron. Well done Fiona!

Janet Owen, another lady refreshed after her recent holiday, was back to winning form in the Ladies’ Winter League scoring an impressive 30 points and just pipping Susan Henderson to the post. While Janet will be hard to beat, the competition continues until the end of March and, for the other participants, there is all to play for.

Normal service was resumed in the seniors’ competition with no fewer than 16 players scoring more than 30 points. Top of the leaderboard in the three divisions were Colin Arthur with 35, John Currie with 31 and Bob McAlpine with 33 points.

Good progress is being made with the tree-felling work in the Den of Logie woodland and walkers and golfers are reminded that there is no access until the works are completed. The best route for those wanting to visit Skatie Shore is to walk along the track adjacent to the golf course on the east of the railway line, then down the hill under the railway viaduct. Please be aware of the danger at all times from golfers playing the course itself.
