The Clubhouse was not full of Welbeck Members - but it was full to the brim with musical talent, great food, laughter, dancing, memories, enjoyment and fun for those who did support new Club Captain, Dougie Stevenson who organised the event.
Captain Dougie and his Committee thought it appropriate to honour a number of members with 40 years continuous membership of T.W.G.C. and so, the following each received an engraved momento:-
Jim Brown, Ian Murray,Tom Bell, Tommy Burns, Robert McKinnell, David Walker, Billy Jones, Alistair Fox, Ron Beattie, Freddie Ludgate, Alistair Glennie, and Jim Anderson.
Club Bar Manageress, Margaret Waddell, who, during season 2015/2016 will achieve 40 years service with Welbeck Golf Club receved a presentation earlier in the day.
This year also represents 25 years service for our resident Golf Professional Gordon McKinlay,and this too, was marked by a presentation, gracefully received with a speech of thanks.
Past Captain Jim Brown gave a fine vote of thanks for a most enjoyable evening at the "the best Golf Club in the World!"
Music was by the highly talented Robbie Dale helped out by the equally talented Rhys Stevenson - superb - they had the place jumping!! A most excellent buffet was provided by D&D Programmes and Allan Stirling, prepared for us by Dougie's wife, Nicola.
Thanks are due to Karen and Paige who worked tirelessly behind the bar to keep the drinks flowing on what had been a highly enjoyable Celebration - It was just a pity more Members were not there to enjoy it!!
