Bienvenue

Bienvenue

Chers amis français

Bienvenue sur le site de l’Auld Alliance 2009.

Nous célébrons cette année la 4éme édition de cette fabuleuse compétition née de l’imagination fertile et éthérée de solides amis des deux côtés de la Manche.

Si le choix du nom n’est pas anodin, puisqu’il dépoussière une alliance signée en 1295 entre l’Ecosse et la France, celui du site l’est encore moins, Saint Andrews étant la Mecque du golf.

Vous trouverez sur ce site toutes les informations nécessaires à votre séjour dans notre magnifique pays, ainsi que des photos souvenirs des éditions précédentes.

Si l’enjeu est de taille (inscrire son nom sur le trophée, reconnaissance éternelle de sa descendance, mine déconfite de l’adversaire vaincu…), le but de cette manifestation reste l’amitié et la convivialité.

Alors affutez vos swings, travaillez le lever de coudes, réglez vos putters et préparez vos corps.

En attendant le 20 mai, bon surf et bon golf….

Welcome
Dear friends

Welcome to the website of the Auld Alliance trophy for 2009.

We celebrate this year the 4th edition of this wonderful competition born in the fertile imaginations of great friends from both sides of the channel.

The choice of the name is not insignificant, since it recalls that alliance, signed in 1295 between Scotland and France. The venue is more significant, Saint Andrews, being the Mecca of golf.

You will find on this site all information necessary for your stay in our magnificent country, as well as photographic memories of the previous editions.

The stakes are high (get your name on the trophy, eternal pride from family, seeing that look on the losers’ faces), but remember that the event is all about having fun amongst friends.

SO keep practicing your swings, work the rise of your elbow (French expression meaning that to be able to drink you need to muscle your elbow), polish your putting technique and prepare your body.

Until May 20th, good golf …

  1. ok, it all sounds great, one question though……….when is the “WAGS” day?

  2. Dear Abandoned Bird,

    There is no WAGS day by committee agreement, after a previous ‘incident’ in Perth…. which I wont go into. The strict Golf and Golf only rule shall stand.

    Aw ra’ best….. Slosher.
