Public Opening 2005 (6th to 10th June)

A steady flow of players during the week took the opportunity to play on our famous stretch of ground on Leith Links. Whilst some lived only a good niblick shot from the Links others came from as far afield as Canada and China!

Our oldest player was Jean Anderson who played a short way round with her son - Jean is 93 years young and showed no signs of "first tee nerves" to knock an excellent shot down the middle of the 1st fairway !

Our thanks also go to those who sponsored each of our 5 holes - A-Haven Townhouse; Mackenzie Guest House; our President Douglas Foulis; Sandaig Guest House and Leith Initiatives For Tourism.
