Now down to the last four!
Now down to the last four!
Captain Neil Cluckie has chosen a date and venue for this year’s gents outing.
Date: Saturday 22nd August
Venue: Wigtown and Bladnoch GC
Due to ongoing travel restrictions, the Captain has decided to hold his “outing” on home soil. From 1pm members are invited to golf and then make the most of the club’s facilities. For those of you who have never attended this is a fun, sociable day. Further details will follow closer to the date.
Draw for the Boyd Knockout. Due to short turnaround this year both players are responsible for arranging ties. If tie isn’t played, nobody goes through. Please let Malcolm or Matthew know once tie is played so draw can be updated. £2 entry to Matthew or Malcolm. Good luck everyone
On Friday we had 10 couples play in the AC Patterson Mixed. A fun evening was had by all with the results as follows:
1st S Milven / M Milven
2nd M McCulloch / M Robinson

Congratulations to all the winners. Full details of results can be found on Masterscoreboard.
The committee has been discussing the fixture list and below are the gents and mixed fixtures for the next few weeks. We have added two new competitions, the rules for which will be published in advance and can be read on the first tee on the day of the competition. For the AC Patterson, I will need to know pairs by the day before so that I can make a draw and book the tee times. The McLaughlan Trophy will be a one off 4BBB event this year, played on the date which should have been the Wigtownshire 4BBB. Finally, the Boyd will be played for over the month of August, one knockout round per week (in the style of the Wigtownshire Matchplay with short deadlines). If you want to play, please message Malcolm or Matthew by Sunday 26th July. Any questions, please ask. PS please tell everybody who is not on Facebook.
