The Chase Golf Club
Winter League Final 2020.
The Winter League Final took place in the middle of Storm Dennis as Jimmy Bryden and Gordon Christie took on Billy Murdoch and Gordon Wilson.
The overhead conditions meant good golf was at a premium on a blustery day at Fullarton Golf course. Both teams had come into the Final on the
back of contrasting form with Bryden/Christie unbeaten as they topped section 1 while Murdoch/Wilson lost 1 game in winning section 2. A good start
is always welcome in a Final and the experienced team of Bryden/Christie opened their account as Gordon Christie holed the crucial putt on the long
and difficult 1st hole. This advantage was maintained until the 5th when Gordon Wilson replied likewise for the scratch pairing who only came together
following a phone call from the Secretary, John Brodie and the match was all square. Holes 8 & 9 were exchanged as the teams finished the front nine
all square. Again the experienced team of Bryden/Christie came to the fore as they started the back nine with a flourish to lead 1up again. Chances
were missed by both sides over the next 5 holes but Murdoch/Wilson were level again on the 16th green to turn the momentum of the match in their favour.
This advantage was rammed home at the 17th as Billy Murdoch ensured his team would be 1up with 1 hole to play and the game was sealed when Gordon Wilson
gave his team at least a half at the 18th when his long range putt finished holeside to secure victory. Thanks to all players who participated in this year's
event and congratulations again to the winning combination of Billy Murdoch and Gordon Wilson.

Chase Golf Club Foursomes Championship 2020
The entry sheet for the Chase Golf Club Foursomes Championship has been posted on the notice board in the Chase Inn. Anyone wishing
to enter should enter the names of their partnership on the relevant sheet. The closing date for entries is February 16th, 2020 with the

Seafield Golf Course. The winners of this competition will represent the Chase Golf Club in the forthcoming President's Putter event
alongside the Club Champion and the Handicap Club Champion.
Amendment to procedure
Following 2 incidents where a member was left without a game during the December Medal Competition, the following procedure must
now be followed by all players who pull out of a game after the draw has been made. It is now a requirement that the player pulling
out contacts EVERYONE PLAYING IN THE GROUP to inform them. This should happen as a common courtesy but clearly has not been.
Chase Outing May 16/17, 2020
This is a final reminder that there are still some places available (including visitors/guests) on the Chase Golf Club Summer Outing.
We are playing Portpatrick Dunskey on the Saturday(16th) and staying overnight at the North West Castle Hotel before playing Stranraer
(Creachmore) on the Sunday. Dinner/B&B plus coffee/rolls on arrival (16th) followed by a 2 course meal after the round at Stranraer are
included in the price of GBP170. The deposit amount is GBP30 . Anyone else who wishes to attend should contact the Secretary directly.
Reminder to all Members
Please note that over the past few weeks
some members have failed to mark their
own score on their partner's card. Failure
to do this makes it impossible to double
check scores and is therefore a
disqualification offence. This will be rigidly
enforced in all competitions.
