Muir of Ord Golf Club helping buck national trend
PRIZEWINNERS at a Ross-shire golf club took a bow at a get-together which heard how they are helping to buck a national trend.
Muir of Ord Golf Club's annual presentation night, staged in the clubhouse, also saw a presentation to retiring club captain Hamish Milne.
Mr Milne looked back on a successful season and hailed the "tremendous" playing conditions. He shone the spotlight on new head greenkeeper Darren Hexley whose year in post had seen the condition of the course improve markedly.
Mr Milne also thanked the organisers of all the various competitions and club manager John Forbes for his efforts.
He said: “The club continues to hold back the national tide of golfers leaving the sport and is confident the condition of the course and its sound marketing and administrative structure will help to retain it’s membership and attract new members.”
