Gillian Kyle takes the tops honours in the Summer Meeting

Gillian Kyle 

After over a year and a half when no WestVets golf has been played, it was great to have 63 of our members playing at
 Cathkin Braes in the Summer Meeting and Championship qualifier.

A enormous thanks to Cathkin for allowing us to play the competition this year, after last year had to be cancelled. 


The course was in excellent condition considering the downpour they had during the night. Thankfully there was only one shower – albeit a very heavy one for a few holes!

The committee would like to thank Cathkin Braes for allowing us to use their course and accommodating a large number of players especially at this difficult time for all golf clubs.

A special thanks for all the help we received from Bill Bain, the Secretary. Thank you also to the catering staff for looking after us so well throughout the day.



Finally, many thanks to Sandra MacDougall for all her hard work, getting her head around the new handicapping system and recording. Thanks also to May, my Vice captain for helping get the Championship and handicap draw completed.
