Perth Kinnoull Charity Golf DAY 2018
Once again in fine weather The Rotary Club of Perth Kinnoull staged its Annual Golf Charity Day over 18 holes at Dunkeld and Birnam Golf Club which, as usual, was excellently presented by Head Greenkeeper Graham Hutchison and his staff and proved to be a challenging test.
The Strathallan Trophy for the best net score was won by the team from Brown’s Pharmacy Health Care captained by Gordon Brown. (L to R Gordon Brown, Sandy Fyfe, Tino Nombro and Bill Kennedy)
The “Team Ball” Competition was won by the team from Dunkeld and Birnam Golf Club captained by Phillip Lambie having successfully brought home the team ball with the lowest net score. (L to R Jackie McLean, Phillip Lambie and Graham Hutchison)
Peter Stewart of Anderson Beaton Lamond landed his ball nearest the white line on the 9th fairway while David Ramsay of Dirk’s Waggers successfully landed his ball nearest the pin on the tricky 18th green.
To cap off the day the catering staff at the golf club, led by Lorraine MacDonald, provided a buffet dinner of quality and quantity to satisfy the seventy-two hungry golfers.
The Rotary Club of Perth Kinnoull wish to thank all those who participated on the day, sponsored holes and or provided prizes for the raffle. And lastly to Dunkeld and Birnam Golf Club for allowing the use of their fine course. Local charities will benefit from the funds raised.

Clay Pigeon Shooting
Report by John Steven.
Six of us met for bacon rolls on the Wednesday morning. Two novices in Brian Johnston and Kevin Fearn and four so-called experienced shooters in Donal Burke, Douglas Sinclair, his son Andrew and myself.
Turns out Brian is a natural in that given a little instruction he was smashing clays wonderfully. Kevin, who was wearing contact lenses, discovered that having a reading lens in your dominant eye is not ideal. He reported seeing two clays at the end of the gun. But having discovered from our instructor which one to pick, managed to burst numerous clays. Both seemed to really enjoy it and intend to return (Kevin with the appropriate lenses).
Gavel Champions 2017
The final of the Gavel Competition was held at the Station Hotel, Stonehaven tonight against the team from Huntly Rotary Club.
The Perth Kinnoull team played very well from the start and after 3 rounds were so far ahead with a lead of 8½ points to 3½ that it was not necessary to play round 4 as they were unable to be caught.
