Ron Menzies was the North East Alliance Secretary in 2010 when he sadly died on the day before the October meeting to be held at Ballater Golf Club. Despite very wintry conditions on the day, it was agreed to continue with the event in Ron’s memory. It was decided that the Ron Menzies Memorial Quaich would be held in October each year at Ballater Golf Club. Conditions in October 2019 were much more favourable with a testing breeze, sunny intervals and no sign of rain (or snow!) There are three sections within the event namely, Scratch, Class 1 Handicap and Class 2 Handicap. The winners of the Quaich this year are as follows:
70 Chris Gilbert (Cruden Bay)
Class 1 Handicap
64 Dave McLean (Newmachar) (8)
Class 2 Handicap
68 Colin Duffus (Royal Aberdeen) (9)
Congratulations to our winners and, while you will not get your hands on the beautiful Quaichs, your name will be inscribed in perpetual memory. We might even take a photo or two of the winners with the trophies for our website Gallery!
