Diocesan Golf Outing


The 21st Aberdeen Diocesan Golf (Bishops Shield) match took place at Kintore Golf Club, on the 28th June, 2019. The winners were:

  • Trophy – Inverurie Gents
  • Mens individual – Andy Westwood, Inverurie
  • Ladies Individual – Beattie McCann, Inverurie
  • Longest Drive – Ben Sherman, Elgin
  • Nearest the hole – Alex Tweedie, Inverurie

Participant Andy Westwood said “The course was in excellent condition and all the players (including Fr. Keith of St Mary’s Cathedral, Aberdeen, pictured), enjoyed both the golf and the hospitality of the clubhouse. A good day out was had by all. We trust the competition will go on and it would be nice if more Parishes could provide a team of three golfers on the day.”

Joyce Webster, (pictured with flowers)  the retiring PA to Bishop Hugh Gilbert, was given flowers to thank her for all her work for the Diocese, and to commemorate the 21st Anniversary of the match. She added “The flowers are beautiful and I wish to thank Andy for the ‘technical’ parts so important to the organisation of the day.”
