On a beautiful Saturday morning when many wish they had sun block in their bags the Club Championship and James Gray Memorial was fought out in a friendly style. Congratulations to our new Club Champion Kevin Loughrie who with two rounds of 68 showed his class over the 36 holes. Second and third places were Alan Fordyce and Stuart Geddes respectively but no one could argue with the winners result of 4 under par.

The James Gray Memorial for lowest nett score went to young Stuart Mitchell who is going from strength to strength and is one to watch for the future.


Date for your Diary:- Thursday 2nd July.

Cambuslang Gents Team lost their away tie to Hamilton Golf Club 6.5 points to 3.5 Points on Thursday 25th June. Wins by Paul Foy, Shaun Philbin and Stuart Geddes and a half point from Colin Kerr were not enough against a strong Hamilton Team who are likely winners of the league.

The final match of the season takes place at home to Strathaven on Thursday 2nd July. This is a must win for Cambuslang to avoid relegation and it is requested that as many as possible attend to support the Team. For a Nine hole course to have a team in the 1st Division is an accomplishment and the boys have done us proud in reaching this level. When I say boys I am referring to Shaun, Scott and Brian. The rest are ancient.

Talking of ancient our Team Captains and Match Secretary, Alan Leonard and Keith Taylor deserve a vote of thanks.

Please put Thursday 2nd July 2015 in your diary. Tee off from 5:15 and lets support the boys in their fight at the highest level.
