A decision has been taken to play this years British Legion Cup
on Remembrance Sunday 11/11/18
This is to coincide with the fact that it has been 100 years since the end of the Great War
where so many gave their lives.
During play at 11 am a hooter will be sounded from the club house and we would encourage all players on the course to mark the event with 1 minutes silence.
LEST WE FORGET
All summer long members of Eyemouth Golf Club have been playing each other in three Match play competitions ,all these competitions have now been completed and winners have now been found ,they are as follows.
Presidents Putter winners are G. Black & P.Henry
Corsair Cup winner D.S.Dougall
Captains Prize I.Scott
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.

Congratulations to Darren Williamson who had his 1st Hole in One on the 17th hole on Wednesday 9th August. Reports from his playing partners said that it looked a great shot and was never going to be far away.
What an achievement from Eyemouth Golf Club's European Tour Professional David Drysdale on shooting a final round course record 63 in the Irish Open at Portstewart Golf Club and winning a place in the Open Championship at Royal Birkdale.
Congratulations to Iain Methven who had his 2nd Hole In One on the 3rd Hole at Eyemouth Golf Club on Wednesday night. He will say that it was a great shot that never looked anywhere else but truth be told he fatted it a little it caught the down slope and kicked into the hole. Always better being lucky than good!
The club championship finals were played on what was one of the finest days for golf in the Scottish Borders. All the finals took place over 36 holes and there was some great golf played.
Congratulations to all the Champions
Club Champion Richard Oliver
B Championship Tom Ireland
C Championship Dean Smith
