Corrie Golf Club
Saturday November 18, 125-year Invitational. Teams representing all the golf clubs on Arran gathered at Corrie Golf Club to play in a Texas scramble event to celebrate the 125 years of golf at Corrie.
Competition was fierce with only a couple of strokes separating all the teams. It was however the Brodick team who eventually prevailed to earn themselves complimentary membership of Corrie for the coming year.
The event was also an opportunity to formally thank recently retired greenkeeper Pablo Moran for his 26 years of devoted service to the club by awarding him a lifetime honorary membership. Many thanks to the Corrie Hotel for looking after everyone afterwards.
