AGM 2021

Due to the ongoing Covid restrictions we are unable to hold our AGM 2021 in the Club House which was scheduled for wednesday 10th February. We preferred not to have an online AGM, probably a good idea given the recent Handford Parish Council experience! We will therefore continue with resolutions agreed at the 2020 AGM.  Robin McHarg will take over as Captain from Neil Cluckie, and Sandra McGinn will take over as Ladies Captain from Marion Cluckie. We wish them both well.

We would like to thank Sharon Milven for doing an excellent job as Club Secretary for the last 5 years. Sharon has decided to step down effective from today, therefore we are urgently needing a Secretary. Please would all members consider coming forward to join the committee and fill this important post. 

Malcolm Potter is also standing down from the Committee. We would like to thank him for his sterling work over several years as Match Secretary. Therefore we have another vacancy on the Committee.

The accounts for 2020 are available to view on the website wandbgc.co.uk under “members”.  Once again we thank Helen Bark for auditing them.

The fees will remain as per those agreed at AGM February 2020. Those who didn’t get their COVID discount last year are eligible for it this year.  The fees will be as follows:

Full members: £250         (Discount £210)

 Full members aged 18 – 21: £160              (Discount £135)

Juniors (secondary school): £70                 (Discount £60)

 Juveniles (primary school): £40                 (Discount £35)

Country members (live over 25 miles away) £160              (Discount £135)

Associate members (members of another club) £110       (Discount £95)

We are intending to have a comprehensive fixture list. Details will follow when available.

Hopefully we will return to “Normal” golfing conditions this year. We wish all golfers a safe and enjoyable season in 2021.

A new Club Secretary required

We are looking for a new club secretary and would ask all members to consider stepping forward and giving some of their valuable time to contribute towards the smooth running of the Club. Full training will be given! If you are interested, please contact any committee member or email mail@wandbgc.co.uk

Farewell To Matthew, our Green Keeper

Green Keepers Challenge 2018 - 2nd Green

2nd Green

After 7 seasons of doing a first class job Green Keeping at Wigtown & Bladnoch Golf Club, Matthew has decided to move on to a career within the Care Sector. We wish him all the best in his new job and cannot praise him highly enough for the excellent work done on the Golf Course. The Course has been in outstanding condition. Matthew has also provided us with the hugely successful Green Keeper’s Challenge competitions. His contribution to the Club has been immense.  He will remain a popular club member so we will still see him out on the Golf Course.  

We therefore have a vacancy for a Green Keeper.

Tier 4 COVID 19 Restrictions

The Club Committee would like to advise members of the Covid 19 restrictions in place at the moment. The Clubhouse, toilets and locker rooms are all closed but the course remains open. As we don’t have a Covid officer, this means that a maximum of 2 households can play together with up to 4 people allowed per group. These restrictions will be in place until the guidance from Scottish Golf and the Scottish Government changes.

We wish everyone a Happy, Healthy, Safe and Prosperous New Year.
