Eyemouth Golf Club would like to extend a huge well done and congratulations
to our very own Head Green keeper
Keith Burgon Has Just won an Award for the South of Scotland from B.I.G.G.A
We think you will all agree it is a well deserved win , Keith and his team have had to deal with all extremes of the weather spectrum over the past few years but nothing fazed them and they still kept the course open and in perfect condition.
and thanks for the hard work
It is great to see David
get his 2018/19 season off to the start required, after a final round of 66 in the seasons opener to return 10 under in the Hong Kong Open.
After the thrilling battle that David was involved in at the end of last season to retain his tour card we are pleased to report a superb 5th place in the Hong Kong Open
as he kicks his season off in style.
from all at Eyemouth Golf Club
we all support you

a well done to all the winners and thanks for all members for taking part and making this years games so interesting.
In the current climate where the pound in our pocket nevers seems to go as far as we would like it to .
It was proposed and agreed by the Membership at the recent AGM ,that Eyemouth Golf Club would freeze its currents rates of Membership for the third year running.
This means that yet again we can offer some of the best golf in the Borders all year round for the same cost as the previous 3 years (BARGAIN). Remember that we are open all Winter and do not use winter Tees or Mats just real golf against Yourself your Mates and the Elements .
So come and get some now. Contact the Pro Shop for some great deals on Winter Memberships.
Our growing junior section have not been left out either with the current S4 S5 and S6 Membership rates being scrapped in favour of the lower 10% rate .
This course of action was taken to help parents keep their children in the game all the way through Secondary School
We would like to remind everyone that club lockers are in fact a privilege and not a right .
It has come to our attention that some people who are no longer members of the club still have keys for and indeed equipment in the club lockers.
We would like to make it clear that we will now empty any such lockers at the start of each month ,please note that the club will not be held responsible for any equipment removed from these lockers.
If you or anyone you know may be affected please contact the Pro Shop before the end of the month to return any keys etc.
The first cull will start on Monday 1st October
After many weeks of searching Eyemouth Golf Club Committee are pleased to announce that we have now filled the vacant post as Competitions Secretary .
The new person at the helm steering us through all things related to our Scores ,Handicaps and Competitions in general is Mr Bill Greenshields .
The Committee would ask that all members bare in mind this is a volunteer post and allow Bill a little time to settle in to the difficult and demanding role as we welcome him on board.
