Not really , collecting a camera lens for my grandson there
Oh aye.

The Silverknowes Swap Shop.
Should have realised.
Haven’t seen a pic of your grandson so no idea if that’s a good deal or not.

Big cruise ships drop off at Silverknowes now eh? Every day’s a school day here.

18th there the most soul sapping holes in all of golf. Think it was the longest hole in Europe for quite a while.
Jeez, that brings back childhood traumas, thinking I was the only poor wee fúcker that found it such an endless purgatory of a hole! 606 yds?

The 7th here at Glenrothes is a long one and the 1st at Whitekirk was hellish long for a par 4

Played Whitekirk with Dub and yourself many years ago, tester
I hacked my way round there with Dub and a few Bouncers too.
To be honest I can't remember much about the golf, but the waitress serving up the bacon rolls was absolutely gorgeous.

I used to glue sniff, defecate and burn golf balls amongst other things in the woods near the hoose. A lot of peeps did.

So did my grandad! :yayyy:

Here's a wee piece from the history of the golf club from its website. A couple of my uncles in that list.
Co-incidentally, a motley crew of regulars in the local Muirhouse Arms, Davidson’s Mains, were planning to form a Golf Section. A meeting was held in the pub on 14th June 1956, and the motion was adopted!
The men agreeing to start a Silverknowes Golf Section were:
Jimmy McKenzie – Landlord
Alastair McKenzie – Publican (Jimmy’s son)
George Black – Painter
Jim Clark – Greengrocer
Willie Trotter – Grocer
Tom Weir – Plumber
Chas. Southwell – Slater
Chas. Southwell Jnr. – Airport Baggage Master
John Blaikie – Ironmonger
Sam Adams – Gas Worker
Martin Meehan – Gas worker
John Peden (Haulage Contractor)
Magnus McDonald – Engineer
Willie McMorran – Butcher
Andrew Aitchison – Butcher
Willie Southwell – Clerk
Robert Brown – Jobbing Builder
Edward Brown – Gardener (Robert’s brother)
