05-09-11 Robert Strang Celebrates 25 Years
Carradale Golf Club greenkeeper rewarded for this achievment.
In front of his family and Club members, Carradale Golf Club presented a certificate and Silver Salver to Robert Strang, in recognition of his 25 years as Carradale Golf Club Greenkeeper, a record which is unlikely to be overtaken, certainly in most of the current members’ lifetime. Dr Abernethy as Greens Convener, praised the outstanding service, dedication and commitment given by Robert over the years, to ensure the course’s condition is always excellent. In addition to keeping the course in tiptop condition, Robert is also an expert ‘Mr Fix It’, repairing the club’s machines when they break down. Mr Alan Walker, the club’s President, echoed Dr Abernethy’s comments, adding his own appreciation of the hard work and help given to the club by Robert, before asking Mrs Mary Paterson, as the longest serving club member to present Robert with his certificate. The President then presented Robert with the beautiful Silver Salver and a bottle of gin labelled to commemorate the event. The Ladies Captain, Janice Hanning, presented Robert’s wife, Cheryl with a bouquet. Kilbrannan Catering provided the buffet.
