This year the winter has so far brought us rain rain and a little more rain, however the course as we all know has been holding up extremely well with the great management of the greenkeepers and staff.
As we head towards the festive break we would like to note that all scheduled games of the Heathers Winter League this year are on time, and the 5 man format seem to be working for most, bringing out golfers who perhaps may not have bothered otherwise (always good to see more golfers in the winter).
The soup has also been welcomed by most after some of the cold starts so far.
The next few weeks see a selection of games for all on Sunday the 22 December the Christmas Quaich
and the New Years Cup
will be played on Sunday 29th December both of these competitions are open to all male and female
after all its Christmas .
The Gents Festive Open 4BBB
is to be held on Saturday 28th December and then the routine returns with the January Medal
on Sunday the 5th January 2020 followed by the Round 6 of the Heathers Winter League.
I would like to on behalf of Eyemouth Golf Club wish all members past and present a
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year for 2020.

draw sheets are available in the pro shop or by phone on 01890750004 and then the following week it is again the turn of the British Legion Cup
during which we would ask all players to respect the minutes silence when the hooter sounds. After that its back to Winter League round 2
All Members should be aware that a review of handicaps
has now been completed in accordance with the R&As guidelines .
This review was carried out by a Sub Committee and has been completed now before the Winter League begins. we would like to thank all those involved for there time in this matter.
All members should be aware that there handicaps may have been adjusted and is there responsibility to check before they play in any competition what the correct handicap is.
Unfortunately a decision was taken to cancel todays Craig Cup ,The reason at the time was due to localised flooding around the course. There are still a few members who can win this years Boff Plate and as such it would be a shame to deprive them of the change to grab the glory,After battling away all season with that in mind a decision was taken to run the Craig Cup along side next weeks monthly Medal .
Any details will be ironed out during the course of this week and will be clear come next Sunday before the Competition begins.
we trust you will understand why this competition has to be run before the winter league begins, good luck to all those who have qualified for the Craig Cup Final.
As some members may be aware the Club are currently preparing to run a test of the new systems required for the 2020 changes ,This will be done as a parallel test along side all current systems and will in no way affect any current handicap or bookings.this system will be tested in stages and as we go through you may be asked from time to time to try news systems there is no need to panic just now when the time comes we will run you all through it and will be on hand should you require help.
There will also be events running in the club house to go through it and give you a simple question and answer section
Remember this new system is going live in November 2020
and we will have to get ready whilst it is a lot of changes all at the same time members of the club have been working with Scottish Golf for months now preparing for this .if you have any question in the meantime please feel free to contact Bill Greenshields for more information.
The dates and details of this years winter league now confirmed and the entry sheet is in the Pro Shop competitions folder.
The deal will include soup after each game and a sit down meal on the final day. For any one wishing to partake in the soup and meal the cost is £25.00 payable on the first day .
more details on the club notice board.
Great news for all members the membership fees for all the different categories are to remain the same for the coming year .
This will be the third year that members have not been asked to pay more for there fees ,The committee have felt that in the past the members have been pushed enough and a little relief would be welcome.
with that in mind full membership will remain at £450.00 for the coming year and all other categories will be pro rata
A huge thanks to all members for sticking with us in numbers over the past years.
