Virtual Opening Competition

Welcome to what should have been the opening competition of the season, The Captain v Vice Captain. Due to the Corona virus restrictions it was played in VIRTUAL reality. Captain Neil Cluckie hit a screamer down the left, flirting with the out of bounds but fading it back nicely to finish well down on the left side of the fairway. Vice Captain Robin McHarg hit it out right, down the ninth fairway but drawing it back over the hedge to finish just slightly right of centre. Ladies Captain Marion Cluckie and Vice Captain Sandra McGinn hit mighty drives straight down the middle. After 9 very enjoyable holes, supported by a large turnout of members, the result was declared a draw. In REALITY the course is looking lovely, many thanks to Matthew who is doing a sterling job on his own, dealing with the essential course maintenance. Hopefully we will be back playing in the not too distant future.

Ladies (Virtual) Opening Competition

Tonight (according to the fixture list) saw the opening Ladies Competition of the season, the 9 hole “bring a prize” night. Everyone brought a prize and the winner had first pick of all the prizes. However, due to a 10-way tie for first place, things got a little heated as they all made for the hand sanitizer with loo roll prize! Stay safe and watch the pink super moon tonight.

Golf Course Closed!!

After the directive from the UK Government, and advice from Scottish Golf, we sadly have to announce that the Golf Course is CLOSED. Stay home, stay safe and we look forward to seeing you all hopefully later on in 2020.
