Dumfries & County Celebrate Centenary in Style
South-west club Dumfries and County Golf Club have just completed a week of Centenary Celebrations, with a number of events taking place to mark the achievement.
A highly successful Centenary Dinner was held at the Cairndale Hotel on Saturday night (May 26), attended by over 260 members and guests and chaired by Norman Blount.
George McNeil and Sandy Strang were the principal speakers, ably supported by Jane Brown. In a move that pleased many, drinks at the bar were also at 1912 prices (for a short term only!)
To further celebrate the centenary, the picture shows club captain Muir Townsley and lady captain Elaine King dressed in attire from 1912 with clubs to match.
During the week, the Dumfries and Galloway club also enjoyed a David Edwards trick shot show, held numerous competitions and putting challenges.
Dumfries and County are also due to face Saline in a centenary match in June, with the Fife club also celebrating their centenary this year.
