Comrie Golf Club News – November 2011 Annual General Meeting/ Prize Giving It was a great pleasure to have so many of our members attend the recent AGM and Prize Giving. It is really encouraging to see the level of interest and support for the Club’s activities. The main points reported and agreed at that meeting were: We were delighted to welcome 31 new Full members and 5 Country members during 2011. A team of Barry Anderson, Peter Nichol, David Pettigrew, and David Simpson won the West Perthshire Trophy for Comrie against strong competition from Auchterarder, Crieff, and Dunblane Callum McGuigan won both the Junior and Gents Championships – the first time this has happened. Callum is also the youngest player to win the Gents Championship. Chris McKelvie was congratulated on winning the Ladies Championship. Our golf matches from all sections of the club against other local courses were all played in a friendly spirit – but, in overall terms, not too successfully for us! The extensive social programme over last Winter was very successful and well supported. Bill McGuigan’s clubhouse lunches and dinners were superb. All of our Open events went extremely well. Only one had to be deferred because of weather. The course was again in excellent condition during 2011 – despite some appalling weather. Ally and Chris were thanked for the excellent work they have done. The accounts for the year showed a surplus, we have paid off a large element of the clubhouse loan, and we have increased our bank balance. The club is in satisfactory financial state. In view of a number of increasing costs, a small increase of £5 on the full annual subscription for 2012 was proposed and approved. Four new members of Council were elected – Brian Christie, David Morfitt, Peter Philip, and Hazel Wylie. Donations to the Club It is pleasing to report that the club is, as a result of some generous donations, able to acquire for next season a new flag (the current one is in very poor shape) and better outside seating. During the year we were presented with a new bench in memory of Stewart MacGregor – sited at the 6th tee. Friends of Ian Oates also presented a fine mahogany bench for outside the clubhouse. We are now able to purchase another mahogany bench and two tables and benches to complete the area around the clubhouse doors. These acquisitions will greatly enhance the appearance around the clubhouse. Insurance As a result of a well-publicised Court case resulting in a golfer and his club having to pay large compensation payments to a player struck by a wayward shot, there has been added focus on the need for members to ensure that they have adequate insurance arrangements in place. Members may find that they have cover within their Household Insurance but that needs to be carefully checked. The club provides the option – on renewal of subscription – to purchase Personal Liability Insurance; details of cover are available at the Clubhouse. It has to be the responsibility of individual members to satisfy themselves that they feel adequately insured.

Some changes have been made to the programme in the light of experience: A slightly later starting time for Member events on Sunday afternoons - to provide better timing for catering. Comrie Fortnight Competitions in the second week - to avoid a clash with Bowling Club events. Separation of Medal and Spoon rounds for Gents Summer League only to be held on Saturdays Help for Heroes charitable competition to be combined with club events in June Communication If members have not been receiving emails from the club, we do not have your email address!
