Easter Dance a roaring success.

Those members who missed the Easter Dance should kick themselves as it is one of the best nights the club has hosted in a number of years. The band Superstition were outstanding and the crowd danced, or staggered on their feet , to a compendium of great songs on a evening of high entertainment. Thanks must go to the House Committee and in particular John Kilpatrick for booking the band and organising the night.

Fraggle Rocks the Quiz World!

Congratulations to the Fraggle Rock Team who won the Cambuslang Golf Quiz League for 2015. The team comprised Norman Cloughley, John Bell, Andy Rae, John Shanks and Kenny McGeachy. (obviously it was not a competition for the best dressed.). These brainiacs beat some strong opposition to lift the trophy, medals and bottles of plonk over the Quiz Nights so ably hosted by Past Captain John McBride.

Fairway Mats

Please note that from 1st April 2015 on there will be no need to use the fairway mats.

Burns Supper Success!

Many thanks are due to the 84 members and Guests who made our 55th Annual Burns Supper such a success. Considering we had it on 13th March 2015 rather than the 25th January it was a delight to see a full hall appreciate the recitations and speeches. A special thanks must go to our newest member Joe Blake who on his 13th Birthday entertained us with Burns “Address to a Toothache” for which he was presented with his membership on the evening by our Captain and Chairman of the evening Craig Cochrane.

Quiz Night Friday 27th March 2015

The final night of the quiz league is being held on Friday 27 March.  The current league table is below. At present there is a dead heat for 1st place, with ‘The Cathkin Posse’ and ‘Fraggle Rocks’ both on 24 points and have both answered 279 questions correctly over the first 3 rounds.  I look forward to seeing you all for the last leg.

Landscaping.

Members and visitors will have noticed that there are a lot of works going on around the Car Park and putting green area. I big thank you must be made not only to the grounds staff but to Volunteer Members John Lamb, Rennie Dobinson and Bobby Robertson. These members deserve a well earned thanks from you all and a small libation at the bar when you see them.
