Final tee time for Club veteran
FORRES Wednesday Seniors gathered to say farewell and good luck to one of their stalwarts who is hanging up his golf club.
Hunter Brown moved to Forres with his wife Rea from Kinghorn, Fife, in 1990 and joined the golf club in 1993. He has been a member of the Wednesday Seniors for 20 years and ran the section successfully from 2002 for seven years before handing over to Ross McKerron
He played his last round with Murray Hislop, Neil MacLeod and Geoff Matthewman who joined him on the 18th green for a tipple to toast his departure. He was finally joined by more members who came down to wish him well and drink to his health!
