Golf club celebrates anniversary in style

LINLITHGOW Golf Club continued with its celebrations to mark their 100th anniversary with a dinner dance in the Marches Marquee on Saturday, June 8.

It was the social highlight of Linlithgow Golf Club’s Centenary and over 300 members and guests enjoyed a great night.

Amongst the guests were Fiona Hyslop MSP, Provost Tom Kerr and past professional at the club Steven Rosie.

Tom Kerr presented Ian Scott, captain of the golf club with a gift from West Lothian Council to mark the centenary.

Linlithgow Golf Club member Iain Harrison said: “The Provost wished the club every success for the next 100 years but he then blotted his copybook with the audience by confessing to be a member of Kingsfield Golf Club.”

A special centenary cake was made for the dinner and this was cut by Mrs Ena Benn, the who has been a member of the club since 1940 when she joined as a junior. Club captain Ian Scott and Ena Bennie are seen here cutting the cake.

Captain Ian Scott thanked all those on the centenary committee for their hard work in making the event happen and thanked the catering staff, the bar staff and those golf club members who had helped set up the tables and chairs for the dinner.

The club’s 100th anniversary has already been celebrated with the unveiling of a commemorative cairn and a hickory shaft golf competition.

Still to come is their AM-AM competition in August, a folk night and their Christmas and Hogmanay dances.
