It is with pleasure that I welcome you,
to the 2007 golfing season with the Royal High FP Golf Club.
Some of you will be seeking divine
intervention for this years golf (just like Zach Johnson) so I have
taken the liberty of outlining this season’s outings below and trust you
will look forward to competing at some of Scotland’s top golfing venues;
Friday 11th May –The
Roxburghe Hotel & Country Club –
(Tee booked; 15:10 – 16:10 – Cost £39,
includes round, soup & sandwiches)
Sunday 10th June – Kinross

Friday 6th July – Kings
Friday 17th August – Archerfield Links
In addition to the above traditional
strokeplay and stableford rounds, this year sees the launch of the
2007 Inaugural RHS FP Matchplay Tournament. As with all
competitions, we are relying on you indicating your interest in the
above in order to ‘make it happen’.
By the time you have read this on the website, the season
will have commenced, but I would
be most grateful if you could confirm your attendance as soon as
possible via completion and return of the attached entry form, via the
preferred method of communication – e mail. The Roxburghe course in
Kelso is known as the Augusta of the Borders and for only £39 represents
excellent value. We are hoping for a slightly drier day than that of
As many of you will have noticed,
unfortunately we have had to drop Elie from our rotation, this is due to
the continued inflexibility of the Secretary at the Club who was
demanding full payment in advance and an unrealistic minimum number of
20. The Elie outing has been replaced with Kinross, where the new
Montgomery course is a more than adequate substitute.
Subscriptions this year will remain at
£30.00, with members having the added convenience of being able to pay
directly into our Bank Account (quoting; RHS FP Golf Club) via;
Clydesdale Bank; sort code 82-63-05 and account number 90485665.
Please note that you can also pre pay for
all the outings via this method, thus making it much easier (and more
sensible given his track record) for our secretary, Mark Freedman, to
collect the required monies.
I trust the above to be in order and look
forward to seeing you all at Roxburghe.
Best of luck for the coming season,

second demolishing in as many years.
