THE MEMBERS of Letham Grange Golf Club celebrated another successful season on Sunday under their own management of the golf courses.

Members, in 36 teams, participated in a Texas Scramble competition over the Old Course with the winners being J. Gray, B. Patterson, L. Morely and J. Filby, with a 66, nett 53, winning by two shots.

Letham Grange Golf Club captain Gardiner Arthur said: “It is great to be able to recognise the members for their support over recent times.

“We were able to offer £400 of gift vouchers from Auchterlonies at Angus Gateway, the main sponsors of the Captain’s Day as the prizes for the top three teams and closest to the pin winners.”

The club had also been running a prize draw over the last few weeks, so that the course improvements performed on the drainage system of the Glens Course last winter, could be replicated on the Old Course this winter.

And Gary Tough was the lucky winner of the star prize, Ping G15 irons. Details of the competition results and prize draw are available on the club website at

As well as the golf, the club captain and lady captain Helen Kelly were also able to present a cheque to Jim Donaldson and Dave McGlashan representing the local Arbroath and District Parkinson’s UK Support Group.

This money had been collected by the members at an earlier club event and was supplemented up to the total of £200 by another one of the club’s sponsors, Tristar Oilfield Solutions and Training.

As well as the plans for the course drainage improvements to the Old Course, the committee is making plans for operating the golf courses for a third year in 2013.

Irrespective of the outcome of the long running legal case, the latest appeal being scheduled for two weeks in October, the club will be prepared to react to ensure that the members will continue to enjoy golf over both courses at Letham Grange.
