East Kilbride and Haremyres golfers at Bothwell Castle 2017
23 members arrived at Bothwell Castle Golf Club for our annual outing,
we were all watching the weather hoping the sun would make an appearance
for the rounds getting under way at 2pm.
This year we were gifted with a trophy from Willie King to be known as the King Cup,
so some people had an eye on the prize!

5 teams of 4 and 1 team of 3 went out playing a Stableford competition
with the best 2 scores counting.
We had nearest the pin at the 8th for the men,
Archie Craig was 15ft from the pin
and scooped the prize of an Italian Cake
just in time for Marion’s big birthday !!

The 14th hole was chosen for the ladies nearest the pin
and Catherine Raeburn picked up the spoils there.
The 18th hole was chosen for the longest drive
for both men and women.
There were a lot of names claiming the ladies prize
but again Catherine in the last group
sneaked it in the end.
The gents was won by our international golfing star George Strang!

Action on the fairways was frantic
with waterproofs on and off the whole way round
but it didn’t seem to dampen spirits.
This was coupled with some great shots,
some bad shots..............
and even some people dumping their balls in the lake at 18th
but the biggest fright of the day came from Willie Baird
just passing the ladies tee box by 6 inches
with his tee shot at the 12th ! Phew Willie it was close !!

Now onto the winning team.
This was secured by Andrew Craig’s team of Alison Taylor ( the bandit)
David Raeburn and Jim Drumgold
with a great score of 84 points.
