Public Opening 2004 (8th/9th July)

For the payment of a very modest green fee, anyone was again able to play a round of golf on the 5-hole course laid out on the historic golfing site of Leith Links. 
There were perhaps fewer players than in previous years, but they did come from both the local Leith community and much further afield. 

What someone said in 2003 was equally relevant to 2004 - "I had not used clubs like these since I was a young lad; you quickly realise how different these clubs are to the clubs of today, but what great fun !"
