The  2017 season begins......on the first tee - and raring to go!
Our first Meeting of the year at Scotscraig was played in sunny, but very blustery conditions. The course was in immaculate condition for the time of year and most ladies said they enjoyed the challenge of playing high speed links golf.

Our first Meeting of the year takes place at Scotscraig where they are celebrating their Bicentenary. 
Scotscraig is the 13th oldest golf club in the world and during the last two  years  the Club has undertaken a project to return its famous layout to the original specifications in time for their 200th anniversary. The Vets last played Scotscraig in  2005.

The Draw for the SVLGA Championship Meeting at Blairgowrie in September will be done at Scotscraig by the Captain, Lizee McGraw  and Vice-Captain, Lorna Bennett. 

There were  30 requests for specific tee times and tee times close to travelling companions. We have tried to fit everyone in, but  apologies if you are not as  close to travelling companions as hoped for.  On the day cancellations or adjustments to the Draw will be dealt with at the registration desk.

Since the Draw was published, we have had  several call-offs,  and the Draw has been changed several times, those affected have been notified.  If you would like a late entry contact the Secretary
