            All-star line-up at the Clackmannan County Golf Union Dinner.


It was another good evening at Tillicoultry Golf Club when Clackmannan County Golf Union held their 2013 Annual Dinner.  A gathering of around 60 enjoyed an excellent meal and were entertained by Alan Tait the Director of Golf at Dalmahoy Golf and Country Club.   
Unnoticed by many, the company contained a number of former National Champions,  notably John Gullen (Tillicoultry), Scottish boys stroke play champion; European Tour player Callum Macaulay (Tulliallan), a past Scottish amateur champion;  Bob Stewart (Tulliallan), a past Scottish seniors champion, and the first winner of the Scottish Champion of Champions tournament,  Sandy Horne (Tulliallan).     
Scott Borrowman, winner of the 2012 Scottish Golf Union Order of Merit and former Scottish youths champion, would also have been present had he not been representing Scotland in South Africa.

At the close of proceedings, Hugh Hunter, the 2013 County Golf Union President, presented the 2012 County Golf Union Trophies.

 The success of the evening was undoubtedly due to the hard work by county officials aided by Tillicoultry Golf Club.


With the weather causing headaches for the organisers, the 2012/13 Midland alliance season is close to completion, and it is pleasing to report that Clackmannan golfers continue to make their mark   
 Best performance comes from senior golfer Bob Stewart (Tulliallan) who is well up in the scratch awards, lying third in the Amateur rankings after good scores at Montrose and Burntisland, no doubt giving a bit of confidence for the new golf season.  Alloa’s Chris Westland lies just outside the top ten in the same Order of Merit, thanks to a good team performance at Scotscraig.


The six local golf clubs will be making preparations for their official openings  at the end of the month, and will welcome new members with open arms…… so anyone new to the game who shows interest in club golf should contact their nearest golf club.  The Clackmannan County Golf season starts with team matches in a few weeks with the Spring meeting following in April---- more details to follow.
