John Imrie:

I started playing golf at North Berwick as a boy on holiday over forty years ago. As a sighted player, I played at Williamwood in Glasgow, with Aberdeen University and then at Fraserburgh until I ran into eyesight difficulties in the mid seventies. In 1981 I started playing again with help from my partners and joined Westhill Golf Club in Aberdeenshire. I am a life member at the club and I particularly valued being part of the purchase of the course and clubhouse during my captaincy.

I have been participating with SBGS for over three years and was eventually able to take a full part in competitions from last season following retirement. It was a great thrill and honour to represent Scotland in the International at Helensburgh and experience the pressure of the first tee and the closing holes of a team match. A great deal of thanks must go to my guides: Tom Morrow, Brian Thomson, my wife, Freda, and my son, Stuart. Their good company, on course guidance and transport have been invaluable.
