Senior's Charities

Please click on the images to enlarge

The enclosed letters are acknowledgements of the money that the Blairgowrie Senior Section, and our visiting clubs gave so generously during the 2016 Season.  I'm sure you will agree that they are both very worthwhile charities to have supported, and thanks to everyone who gave so generously.

Seniors’ Group 54th Annual Dinner

A most enjoyable evening was held at our club which was attended by 65 members (including Dad’s Army).  Ian McPherson, as usual organised a splendid event, ably supported by his Clan Chief Sir William McPherson who gave a most humorous pre-dinner speech.  We also welcomed our after dinner Guest Speaker Sir Craig Reedie who gave us a most informative and entertaining talk about his antics as Chairmanship of the British Olympic Association and more recently World Anti-doping.

Our meal provided by Jayne & Paul with ample food & wines served by our lovely ladies was greatly appreciated.

So, many thanks to all our members who participated in our home & away matches during the season, but amazingly that’s all the Senior matches over for 2016.  Remember to keep doing your exercises and weight training to be ready for the 2017 season!

Match 25 - Ladybank (Away) Re-play, 21st September

Gentlemen - Due to extreme Scottish summer weather our away match against Ladybank on 8th September was postponed.  Ladybank have kindly offered us Wednesday 21st September for a re-match.  Many of the original team were unable to participate on the revised date, however, we have managed to assemble a strong and willing team all gnashing at the bit.....See weather forecast below. A quick round is required to avoid a shower!

We are slightly ahead after the Home match on 17th May:
Blairgowrie 4.5 - 3.5 Ladybank

Meet at 11:00 would give us a more leisurely start.

David Paterson will be your Captain for this match.

Good luck.

Match 27 - Royal Burgess (Home)

Colin Blues is your Captain for this match. 

This match started in 1986 and results since then are Royal Burgess 16 Blairgowrie 12 with 2 drawn.

The Match is played  for The COCHRANE ROSEBOWL and whilst we won  last year, unfortunately we are down 6 - 2 from the match played  at Burgess earlier this year.  So there is a lot  to play for !!

Sadly, this is also the last Match of the 2016 Season.

The Captain for this Home match is John Hope.
Please meet at the clubhouse at 11:45am fro refreshments and Sandwich Lunch before Tee-off at 1:00pm.  There will be a meal after the Golf.
 This match started in 2000 and results since then are St Andrews 13 Blairgowrie 3.
The match is played for the Bali Dodo Trophy and although we have lost almost every year, we did manage to win last year.  However, we are down 31/2 to 4 1/2 from the away fixture earlier this year,  so it's all to play for and it would be good to retain the trophy.

Match 22 - Elie (away) Result

Captains: Fraser Ritchie &Peter Nussey

An away win for Blairgowrie at Elie for Fraser Ritchie and his team.
Other than the score I have no other information, but it was played on one of the best days of the Summer, so it should have been perfect at the coast.
The score of 5-3 for Blairgowrie also makes it an overall score for the year of 10-6 for Blairgowrie.  Well done Gentlemen!
