WHO ARE THE BOBS

For those of you who do not know about us we will explain.

The BOBS (Brora Old Boys) are senior members of Brora Golf Club who play 15 holes under stableford rules on each Tuesday morning (Weather permitting).  We are always pleased to welcome visitors who do not necessarily have to be senior citizens and often during the summer months we have quite an international field.

The competition fee is £2 plus 10p for each bunker which you land in. The best three cards earn a voucher for the club shop.

Surplus funds are donated to local causes and charities to whom we have been able to give over £1,500 during the last three years.

All players are automatically entered in the summer or winter eclectic competitions and if anyone achieves that magic hole in one the BOBS fork out for drinks all round.

Bobs 2013 summer eclectic winners
Pictured are Bernard Ledwith and Wattie MacBeath, joint winners of the 2013 summer eclectic, after being presented with The Eric Potter Pot by BOBS club captain Martin Moore.  Both golfers played 21 times and amassed a total of 52 stableford points. In third place we had three players on 49 points, Tom Dodds, John MacGregor and Tony Tracey. During the year Wattie scored a record 44 points in one round of 15 holes and Bernard scored six points at the 17th which the BOBS play as a par five - is it any wonder that they ran out the eventual winners?

It is a clear indicator of how good a summer we have had if you consider that this year 449 rounds were played compared with 307 last year.

Our winter season got underway on 1st October and we extend a warm welcome to any member or visitor who wishes to join us for a compeitive round in good company next Tuesday morning.
