It was a cold Sunday that greet 25 hardy souls to week 11 of the Winter League and what is now the "home straight". As the saying goes, "it takes an auld heid....." as Gordon Smith took the honors with a fine Nett 59. I dare say, given the ground conditions, he was hitting 300 yard drives!! Alan Low, couldn't match his Nett 50 from the previous week, but Nett 61 was enough for second. With Hugh Kerr, a previous low scorer taking 3rd with a Nett 62. With few golfers in the Sec
Friday night saw a packed clubhouse, as the Dunkeld and Birnam Seniors (DABS) entertained 60 members and guests with their "Touch of Burns" Night.

The DABS Seniors are to hold a Burns Supper in the clubhouse on Friday 27th January 2017 at 7.30pm.

Tickets are £10 per person and number should intimated by emailing the club, or contacting Dave MacDougall on 01350 727729 All members and their guests will be made welcome.
It's a New Year and time to off-load the cobwebs and back to business! Week 9 still saw some "eccies" coming, and as the weather proved kind, all three handicap prizes were in the 50's with one skirting with a sub 50 round. Ron Lambie continues to rake in the cash with another Scratch 65, but safe enough to protect his handicap!
