First of all I would like to welcome two new members to the Committee, Ann Forbes and Linda Sneath and hope they will enjoy their two year term, already they are showing great potential and have great ideas.

We all enjoyed a lovely day last Saturday for the annual Christmas Lunch and Prizegiving and I would like to congratulate all prizewinners.  Many thanks go to Paul and his staff for wonderful food and fantastic service.  Sadly, The Lady Dowager Countess of Wemyss was unable to join us due to ill health, but we wish her well and hope she will soon be fully recovered.

Our first big date in the diary is our coffee morning due to take place on Thursday 9th March.  We are in the process of deciding exactly what to do for this, but rest assured it will be something quite different.

For those of you who are members of East Lothian Ladies County Golf Association, they will be holding their Pre-Season Lunch on Saturday, 4th March at Kilspindie to coincide with our 150th Anniversary, so I look forward to many of you attending.

Finally, may I take this opportunity of wishing you all a wonderful Christmas and an excellent golfing year in 2017.
