Our first outing of the year was held at Gullane Golf Club on course No.3 on Friday 5th April 2019
Designed by Willie Park Jr, the course celebrated its centenary in 2010 and has matured to become a much loved destination for many visiting golfers. Favoured with the same impeccable links turf as its older neighbours No. 3 is maintained to the same high standards from tee to green. This is no soft option, despite a lack of yards the course still present the classic Gullane challenge of strategic course management, true running greens and numerous bunkers to be avoided – and all played out in stunning scenery.
On a sunny but blustery day Phil Millar won the David Bryce Trophy in the morning with a net score of 59, Norman Baikie was second with a net 62.
