The course provides an excellent test of golf, evidenced by the quality of players it has produced. The Club are delighted to have produced two Ryder Cup Captains in Eric Brown and Bernard Gallacher. Eric captained the side in 1969 and 1971 and Bernard of course in 1991, 1993 and 1995.

Today proved to be a wonderful day weather wise to conclude the celebrations for this year of our Ryder Cup heritage. Everyone had a great day and were delighted to face the challenge of taking Bernard on at the par 3 17th hole. Bernard and Harry Bannerman took a trip down memory lane by retelling some stories from the Ryder Cup. The result from today's match added to the result from yesterdays members match turned out to be a win for Europe (lets hope that's a good omen)
Thank you to everyone that took part particularly the sponsors who have generated funds for Stephen's FoundationOne final event to come is a Texas scramble next Sunday followed by a day in the clubhouse hopefully watching Stephen and Europe win the Ryder Cup.
