  • Seems far away but it isn’t really – mark your calendars for Saturday, June 4th as The Caledonian Society of Bermuda are hosting their First Annual Charity Golf Tournament at the Fairmont Southampton Resort Golf Club. The format is Captain’s Choice and the shotgun start is at 8am. Cost is $100 per player (teams of 4) and the price includes green fees, golf cart and a light Scottish breakfast. This is the first event of this type to be hosted by the Society and all proceeds will go towards the annual gifts we make to local good causes (details here). Prizes are on offer for closest-to-the-target on certain holes and a prize for the most tartan-clad team.  There are also sponsorship opportunites – contact calsocbda@gmail.com for more details on this. Spaces are limited and based on the response so far, I would recommend getting your registration forms in early!  Here is the registration form for you to complete and return to Ian Hind at ihind@becl.bm and here is the link to the Facebook event.


  • Just a quick note to let you know that registration for the Catlin End-to-End is now open at www.bermudaendtoend.bm.
