Minto’s open day on Sunday saw a large number of potential members ignore the wind and rain to see for themselves what the club has to offer. Atendees, young and old, toured the course, played golf, practised putting and chipping and benefited from coaching by local professional Frank Scott and club coaches. Many existing members were on hand to help with the chipping and putting competitions. After the golf, everyone relaxed in the club restaurant where current and potential members chatted together.

The target was to gain at least ten new members and that goal was exceeded with new members joining from across the age spectrum from juniors to seniors.

Club members played an important role at the open day with sterling leadership from lady captain Sue James and club captain Albert Thompson.

A Minto spokesperson said: “The club looks forwards to seeing the new members on the course very soon.”
