  • The Chase Summer Outing results.

  • The Chase Outing took place at Cardrona Golf & Spa Hotel in Peebles on Saturday and Sunday 18th/19th May, with 24 members and guests taking on the Dave Thomas designed layout in the sunshine of the Scottish Borders. With the resort due to host a Tartan tour event the 6,600 yard course was penal with any ball missing the fairway nestling down into rough 3inches high. Consequently, the scoring on both days via the Stableford points system saw only the winning score on each day registering par or better. On the opening day the Hugh Paterson Trophy was up for grabs for Chase members as well as nearest the pin prizes at holes 5/11 for everyone to play for. Our winner on hole 5 was Robert Gilchrist with Scott Kirk picking up the spoils at hole 11. In the competition itself, David Edgar (28pts) finished in 6th place with Ian Gray (29pts) in 5th and Dougie Beattie (30pts) in 4th position. In 3rd pipping Dougie on countback was Robert Gilchrist (30pts) with Gerry Cavanagh (33pts) our runner-up. The clear winner with 39pts despite a no return at hole 7, was David Mansell. After dinner and an overnight sojourn into Peebles for some members, we were back on the course the following morning to see if the layout could be tamed by anyone at the second time of asking. The nearest the pin holes on day 2 were at hole 9, where David Mansell was the winner and hole 13 where Ronnie Lees was closest to the pin. Our four visitors on the trip were playing for a prize, generously donated by Vice Captain, James Burnett and this was won by Sandy Ferguson who scored a total of 58pts over the 2 rounds. In the contest for the Millenium Cup, Jimmy Bryden (29pts) pipped Robert Gilchrist on countback for 6th spot with Dougie Beattie (30pts) in 5th again on countback as he was beaten by David Edgar in 4th. The fight for the podium places was tighter this time round with Ronnie Lees (34pts) in 3rd spot and John Brodie (35pts) our runner-up. This left David Mansell (36pts) once again in first spot as he became only the 3rd Chase member in our 42 year history, to win both events over the weekend, as he joined John Taylor and veteran Stan Smith in sweeping up the spoils. On behalf of the Chase Golf Club, I wish to extend thanks to the staff at Cardrona Golf & Spa resort for their hospitality over the weekend, including Chris and Adam in the pro shop, as well as those Committee members who helped with sweeps/admin over the weekend. My thanks to our visitors for attending and last but not least to all members who I hope enjoyed the weekend and are looking forward to next year already.

  • Chase Golf Club Singles and Doubles draws for season 2023/24.

  • The draws for the Singles and Doubles have been posted on the website for all to peruse. All matches, excluding the Final, must be concluded on the day played i.e. in the event of a tie the players must proceed to the 19th or subsequent holes to conclude the contest. Extensions will only be given for golf course closures or in the event of a prolonged play off (darkness), but only after the Handicap Secretary has been contacted. Players are reminded that they are ineligible to participate in a Strokeplay competition if they are completing a Matchplay tie as differing penalties may apply to any Rules infringements. Therefore, no ties will be incorporated into any Strokeplay event draws. Like previous years there is no challenger so all players are equally responsible for arranging a MUTUALLY AGREED DATE and TIME TO PLAY. We would ask that all competitors exercise common sense in arranging ties. Failure to agree a date will result in both parties being disqualified, unless the Handicap Secretary has been contacted at least 7 days before the play by date and made aware of the difficulties. Only the Handicap Secretary will be responsible for allowing extensions, if he believes circumstances warrant it. Good luck to all who are taking part.

  • Electronic score returns

  • Please refer to the email instruction sent out on 10/08/20. If members require further assistance in this matter they should contact Dougie Beattie (Handicap Secretary).

  • Amendment to procedure

  • Following 2 incidents where a member was left without a game, 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.
