On behalf of the Committee, I would like to bring you up to date on the near completed Sponsorship of the Tee Boards. We are progressing well with this project. Thanks to the Greenkeeping Staff all the Tee Boards have now been secured in place around the course. All holes for Sponsorship have now been sold thanks to the help of some members. All the art work received has been passed on to J Young Signs to prepare for adding to the selected Tee Boards.
The Match Plays, Main Club and Seniors are reaching their ultimate stage of Semi Finals and Finals to produce the winners for 2021.
We hope to have a presentation at the end of the golfing season in order to honour our winners of 2020 and 2021 due to Covid restrictions having prohibited us last year.
We have purchased a memorial bench to honour the memory of Neil Shanks, our past Captain and friend of Scoonie. We have placed a plaque on the bench with a tribute to Neil which includes his saying “It is what it is”.
The teeing area at the 5th is planning to be altered to encourage golfers to play down the right side of the fairway to keep miss-hit balls away from the Leven road and the homes of the residents. The greenkeeping staff are allowing the rough to grow more to the left of the fairway.
The final for the Club Championship took place on Sunday 8th August and was keenly contested in the scratch, Hutchison Cup by Kyle Cushnie and Neil Jones. The winner for 2021 and new club champion is Kyle Cushnie. (Congratulations Kyle). In the Handicap Section, the Cupar Cup was also keenly contested by Colin Brister and Alan Given. The winner of 2021 and new Handicap Champion is Colin Brister. (Congratulations Colin). I would like to thank all the members who gave up their time to play in the knockout rounds on their way to the finals.
Last but not least, I would like to praise the hard work that the greenkeeping staff have carried out to the course under trying conditions and thank them for preparing the course to a high standard for the final of the Club Championship.
