GRANGE & BROUGHTY GOLF CLUB
1st JANUARY 2019
On behalf of our Captain Ian Cowan, who cannot be at tonight’s Hogmanay party, Ian has asked me to wish all our members and guests a happy New Year.
As of a few minutes ago we are now officially the Grange & Broughty Golf Club with both the Broughty and Grange clubs ceasing to exist.
With Golf club membership in Scotland in decline by at least 50,000 members since 2005 it makes much sense for clubs to amalgamate and following the successful vote by both memberships in the summer here we are tonight.
Can I please ask our Ladies Captain Carol Macdonald and the Broughty Captain Colin Mulliss to come forward to unveil the first of our new signs.
I would also like to thank the 100 members of both clubs who selected their choice of new club crest.
I can announce that 4 members voted for the purple version, 47 for the light blue version but the winner by 2 votes with a total of 49 votes was the white version.
I trust you have all had an excellent evening and we can all look forward to many more in our future together as Grange & Broughty Golf Club.
