WBGC Festive Opening Hours

Saturday 1oth December - Christmas Buffet & Prizegiving

Saturday 10th December - Christmas Buffet and Prizegiving

 

The 2016 Prizegiving Buffet on Saturday 10th December was a great chance  for us to get together and catch up on handing out those trophies that, for one reason or another, we didn’t manage to present at the time.  Congratulations to all those who were winners but a special mention for our club champion Nicol Auld. After a couple of seasons when, for one reason or another, Nicol did not get out on the golf course as much as he would have liked, 2016 proved a fabulous year for him. Apart from first place or podium finishes in many of the regular competitions, he won our club championship for the 16th time and then went on to win the island Champion of Champions title beating Ewan McKinnon of Corrie in the process. A fine year for a fine golfer.

Thanks to John and Louise behind the bar for the snacks and drinks and for the festive atmosphere in the clubhouse. It was a fine evening and something we’ll try and do in future years; keep an eye on next year’s calendar and fixtures.

Sunday 4th December - Santa's Christmas Tree Party 


Thanks to all who came to our Christmas Tree party. It was nice to see the excitement of Christmas on the faces and to hear so many talk of their letters to Santa and his elves. And the children seemed to enjoy it all as well. Thanks to Lily and Gege for running the event with their usual aplomb and to John at the bar for the nibbles and refreshments.

GEORGE DRENNAN

GEORGE DRENNAN

 

Members and friends will be saddened to hear of the sudden passing of George Drennan  on Saturday 29th October. A long standing member of Whiting Bay GC, George was a well kent figure on the course, invariably on a Tuesday morning, and in the village. Always good company, with a ready wit and a fund of entertaining stories, he will be sadly missed, not least by Christine and the family to whom we pass our condolences. 

There will be a Church service at Jordanhill Parish Church, on Monday, 7th November at 2pm, followed by funeral at Clydebank Crematorium, at 3.30pm  and thereafter to Hughenden Rugby Club, Glasgow G12 9XP. The family has requested family flowers only please, but donations, if desired, to www.justgiving.co/prostatescotland.
