Provincial Grand Lodge of Perthshire East Annual Golf Competition 2017 

On Saturday 12 August, 2017 the above competition was held at Auchterarder Golf Club with a total of 37 golfers taken part.

The following Daughter Lodges from the Province took part and we thank the members of these lodges for coming along and partaking in the competition. The lodges were No. 3, 46, 74, 122, 192 and 1123.

We were also blessed with the presence of brethren from several sister Provincial Grand Lodges. To all our many visitors we thank you very much for coming along and supporting our competition.

Following the golf, we enjoyed a very welcome meal and liquid refreshments at the club house. After the meal, the prize giving was held, with the following brethren receiving the trophies. The winning team from Perthshire East were Brother’s Bob Easton and Berkeley Harris-Burland from St Johns Lodge No 46. The runners up were Brother’s Sandy McLeod from Lodge St Andrew at Perth No. 74.and Gordon King from St Johns Lodge No. 46. The winning team for the ‘visitors’ competition were Brother Stuart Stirling and Peter Neilson from Stirlingshire. The runners up in this competition were Robert Little, RWPGM of Ayrshire and Brother Tom Davidson, IPPGM of Lanarkshire Middle Ward, it was a very close contest with a count back required to establish the eventual winners. Well done Brethren.

There were three competitions within the main one, namely nearest the pin at the 4th and 10th and the longest drive at the 17th. The respective winners were Gordon King, Peter Simpson and John Bryce.

Unfortunately, in every competition there are those amongst us, who by their finishing position are the strongest, as they are holding everyone else up. This year, that honour went to Brother’s Terry Stoddart and Jim Watson better luck next year.

After the prize giving we then proceeded to the raffle, and what a raffle it was. Our thanks go to the many brethren who so generously gave prizes and purchased raffle tickets. As is normal the proceeds of this raffle are placed into the ‘charity pot’ of the Provincial Grand Lodge of Perthshire East and at the end of the season we make our Annual Donations to Charities and Organisations. We are delighted to inform you that as a result a very handsome sum of £950.00 was raised. We thank everyone for their generosity.

As with everything in life things do not just happen and the Provincial Grand Lodge are indebted to several Provincial Grand Lodge Office Bearers for assisting on the day by collecting monies, selling raffle tickets etc. etc. Brethren, you know who you are and we thank you. We wish to record our thanks to everyone at Auchterarder Golf Club, for the use of the venue and facilities. Also to the caterers for providing such a splendid feast following the golf, it was the usual high standard.

The gratitude of The Provincial Grand Lodge of Perthshire East is extended to Brother Easton and his wee band of ‘helpers’ for making this Golf Competition such a success.

A few years ago, this Competition was in abeyance. It was revived and under the organisational skills of Brother Bob Easton it has gone from strength to strength. We have added a visitors’ competition and as has been previously stated three competitions within the main competition.
