KIRKHILL 89 WINTER LEAGUE

 

The winter league was started in 1989 as a method of bringing like minds together.

At the beginning of the playing season in 1989 a small Sat morning sweep consisting of Bountiful Bill, Bob MacBeth, Davie Irvine, Ian Hamilton, Dennis Keatings, Hugh Campbell, Jim Brown, Martin Heaney and Jim Dillon welcomed three renegades from Blairbeth Golf Club namely Jim Sweeney, Jerry McGuire and Roy McLaughlan and yes the Dirty Dozen wqs born.
It was the Balirbeth trio who suggested we copy their old club and introduce the concept of a Winter League open to all members. This was unanimously agreed to and when the first league kicked off in Nov 89 our numbers had grown with the inclusion of John Kennedy, Charlie Taggart, Fred Brown, Jim Houston, Mick Morris, John Grant, Myles Murray and ex boxer Iron Mike 
 Having paid our 1 registration fee the high and low handicappers were split and 2/3 of the diff in handicaps was applied - yes halcion days.
By the mid 90's we had 32 players and 5 reserves and since then we have never looked back.
