Last week marked the retiral of Carnoustie Golf Links popular head mechanical engineer, Eric Watson.
Eric, who lives in Forfar, had worked at the Links for 25 years. Sandy Reid, links superintendent, said: “Eric worked here through all the changes at Carnoustie Golf Links and he was a big part of making the improvements to the course, shed and machinery. He was a very valuable asset here at the Links and he had great expertise in his role.
“His hard work and dedication will be greatly missed.” Eric’s retiral was marked with a party in the greenkeepers’ shed which was attended by all members of staff as well as his family and friends.
Staff had clubbed together to present Eric with a new television and a plaque. Pictured are, from left - Sandy Reid, Mr Watson, Graeme Duncan, Irene Watson, Neil Watson and Jacqueline Watson.
