OGGS Golf Edinburgh Bruntsfield

Bruntsfield Golf
Thirteen golfers arrived at Bruntsfield Links Golfing Society for lunch before teeing off in benign conditions. As ever there was some very good golf played and some that was dismal. It will come as no surprise that members of the OGGS committee experienced both the highs and the lows. As to the highs, secretary, Brian O’Connor, won the competition with thirty five points playing off a handicap of three. He won by one point from former secretary Robbie Clyde, who had the same point score as John Nicholson but won on count back. As to the lows, at the other end of the scale there was keen competition for second last, with three in the field on twenty four points. History does not now record who it was who lost on count back and came second last, but the record book does show that Captain Angus Morgan excelled himself by being a full seven points behind second last. The least said the better.

Edinburgh GolfMany congratulations to Brian for an excellent round, and it seemed particularly appropriate that the secretary was the first recipient of the brand new “Edinburgh Trophy”. This trophy is unique in every sense of the word. It was created by a friend, who likes to make what can best be described as idiosyncratic models. As you will see from the photograph below, he succeeded. It is unlikely to be copied. Suffice to say that the marquetry work of the School crest is to be admired. Apparently Brian’s children are very impressed with it.
