The 31st Annual Pro Am went ahead on Friday 13 September 2019. This year the club did not use the services of Scottish PGA but decided to run the Pro Am ourselves. Texas Scramble with a shotgun start, with the Professionals receiving a flat fee for playing.


On a lovely Friday afternoon with the course in immaculate condition, thanks to Bill Shepherd and his team, with 17 teams teeing off, The Captains Pick team comprising Adam Dunton, Anne Bowman, John Howland and Brian Dunbar were victorious with a score of 51.4, with John Willox Kitchen Design team of Chris Gilbert, Richard Beattie, Gordon Bryce, John Willox with a score of 51.4 losing out to better inward half, a very close call. Thank you to all teams who took part. Pictures of the teams are on our website.


Thanks once again go to our main sponsor James Jamieson Construction, Clubhouse sponsor Taylor Design and Program sponsor Frasers of Ellon. Thank you to all other sponsors and team sponsors for their continued support of the event. It is greatly appreciated.


A huge thank you must go to Sandy for organising all the Professionals and for his input throughout the time leading up to and the day itself.


Thanks to Martin Brockie and Sandra Brockie for their help with the Pro-Am Brochure, the ladies for all their help, Darrall and Tracy for food & drink. Also, to all other helpers leading up to on the day for all they did to help.

Thanks go to the Pro-Am committee, Neil Whyte, John Wilson, Nicola Fraser, John Gatt, Moira Ironside, and Mitch Cabel, a real team effort. Special mention to John Wilson for obtaining sponsorships.


Finally, Special thanks to Colin Grant Snr. for all his hard work in organising previous Pro Am’s and of course presenting this year’s prizes.


The club asked for feedback on the day which was very positive and constructive. The feedback will be used in organising this year’s event. Initial thoughts are we will revert to previous scoring format but still have shotgun start. Date to be finalised.


James Jamieson Construction have agreed to sponsor our Pro – Am once again in 2020.
