Jim Carruthers Memorial Walk
Mar 24 @ 11:00 am

This is open to anyone including children, leaving from the Millennium Cairn (9th tee) after a short ceremony to mark the opening of Peebles Golf Club’s 2019 season.

The basic walk, about 3.5 miles/2 hours, will go from the cairn past Neidpath Castle to Manor Bridge, returning via The Sware and South Park Wood. 

Groups, families or individuals may wish to take any other route of their choice according to their needs.  Since we may be walking through farmland, dogs won’t be allowed.  

All walkers would be responsible for their own safety.

Further information from Gordon (720511) or Dave (721680).
