Editors Introduction - by Jim Thatcher

All good things must eventually come to an end – and after 18 editions of our online Club Magazine I am retiring from the role of editor.
As there have been no volunteers to take over from me, I understand that our General Manager, Shah, will increase the contents of his monthly email to members, to fill in more detail of the club’s activities.

In this last edition you will find most of the usual committee reports and an extra item about the Worlds Oldest Golf Course (and it is NOT St Andrews!). Fascinating story and well worth a detour if you are ever near Edinburgh.

Our Ladies section in recent times have actively supported The Rowans Hospice and recently received a letter of gratitude, which I am pleased to publish. Well done RCGC Ladies!!

In February we said we goodbye to Bill Davis who has retired as our Head Greenkeeper. I was fortunate to get to know Bill well when I was Chairman of the Greens Committee. Bill is a quietly spoken man but knew his stuff and has overseen a tremendous improvement in our course in 25 years.

Thank you, Bill, for all your hard work and dedication to our golf club. Enjoy your retirement – you deserve it!

The club AGM will be upon us very soon and all members are urged to come along to this important event on Saturday 28th March.

So – my thanks to all who have contributed articles and reports during my time as Magazine Editor. 

Have a great 2020 golf season.

Jim Thatcher, Editor
