EGGS competitions

I have booked out 3 Consecutive Tuesdays, the 29th September, 6th and 13th October, between 9am and 10 am, in order for us to play our three 18 hole medals.

All are stableford off national hcps from the yellow tees and must be putted out.

They are counters so 1 card per group must be completed and left in the clubhouse to be entered on box later. ( scores per hole will be sufficient )

Names to me by phone or email please and I’ll inform you of time and groupings.

EGGS buggy bridge

The new Eggs Buggy Bridge over the Speedy burn has been completed by Alex the stonemason from Tranent.
