MORE than 170 golfers took part in Peebles Golf Club’s opening two events as the new season officially got underway last weekend.

The Captain’s v Vice-Captain’s match on Sunday followed the opening ceremony at the club’s Millennium Cairn and it was Vice-Captain Gavin Carruthers who took the first silverware of the season, leading his side to an emphatic 11.5 – 7.5 over captain Ross Duncan’s team.

Players return to scorecards in hand this weekend with the playing of the Captain’s Putter and Ladies Stableford on Saturday, while the first of the weekly Friday junior competitions tee off this afternoon from 3pm.

Junior coaching returns in two weeks time on Sunday, April 14, while the 18 Steps Coaching Group moves to its new slot of Wednesdays at 5.30pm, the first of which takes place on April 17 after the school holidays.
