Derek Bates has been appointed the new captain of Duns Golf Club.

He takes over the reins from Frank Millar and his vice-captain will be Dougal Affleck.

Derek said: “This will be quite a learning curve for myself and Dougal and I would very much appreciate the members’ patience. I am sure that with their support and that of Council we will be able to take the club forward and realise its full potential.”

The Council is currently looking for a part-time administrator to help run the club office. This is a paid position and the vacancy is being advertised.

There will be a Members’ Forum on the evening of Monday, March 7, at 7pm in the clubhouse. This is an opportunity for everyone to meet the club’s Council and air their views on matters affecting the club. Bar and catering facilities will be available. All welcome.
