Gents

Gentlemen
Details of all club events are to be found in each section and I would encourage all members new and old to participate as much as possible. New members are always welcome along with the many visitors we receive each year.

I hope you all enjoy your golf at Gifford and I look forward to seeing everyone on the course.

Gent’s interclub competitions

The Winterfield Trophy

For many years, Gifford Gents play Winterfield Home and Away for the Winterfield trophy.
This year, Gifford did not start well with a loss 4-1 but on the 6th June, Gifford recovered with a win 4½-½, securing the trophy by the narrowest of margins.
Huge thanks to the winning team; Gary Mack, Colin Clark, Alex Finlayson, Barry Goulding, Fraser Hepburn, Willie Neil, Sammy Caldwell, Chris Marr, Peter Imrie and Sean Cunningham.

As far as possible, the same teams will be drawn for Home and Away matches. If picked and then you have to cancel, you must arrange a substitute.
