BRORA OLD BOYS
An original James Braid designed course • Established in 1891
WHO ARE THE BOBS?
For those of you who do not know about us we will explain below:
The BOBS (Brora Old Boys Society) are senior members of Brora Golf Club who play 15 holes under Stableford rules each Tuesday morning (weather permitting). During the summer season from April until the end of September, we meet up at 8 a.m. to play a weekly competition, enter the 'Magic 2s’ and occasionally compete for a cup. From October until the end of March we meet at 9:00. All scores also go towards the Eclectic and Order of Merit prizes.
We are always pleased to welcome visitors who do not necessarily have to be senior citizens. Often during the summer months we have quite an international field of locals and visitors. Further details are on the notice board by the outside door to the changing rooms.
