Sunday 18th October we have both a visiting party of 30 from the Kirkhill Bar and the Captain and 20 members from Blairbeth Golf Club. The first tee will therefore be closed from 10:30 till 17:00. Any persons playing their second round prior to 10:30 may obviously finish their eighteen. The fact that 50 players will be on the course means there will be nowhere for members to “Cut in” so the course is in reality closed.
I apologise to the regular Sunday Ladies and Gents but this is valuable revenue for the club as well as a potential 50 new members.
On Thursday 22nd October 2015 were are bringing in a deep thatch remover. As previously discussed the thatch in our greens has caused them to be at less than their best. This machinery will literally rip large swathes of it out and inject sand into the channels that are left. This will enable the greens to be played on as normal but for the Thursday 22nd Winter greens will be in operation for the day.

Members and visitors may notice that the Yellow and Medal Tee positions have been moved forward and large area at the rear of the Tee’s cordoned off. This is to take advantage of the present good weather and allowing new growth for next year to ensure we start next season with perfect Tee’s.

Due to our caterer Jim being away on holiday in the sun and Ryan at college on Thursdays there will be no food available on Thursday 1st October or Thursday 8th October. Cold rolls will be available behind the bar on these dates.

Listed below are the names of those who have qualified for the Medal Finals (i.e. those who finished first and second in their respective divisions at the Monthly Medals.) This is run in conjunction with the Autumn Meeting.
On a beautiful Saturday afternoon with Cambuslang Golf Course playing like Augusta, the Titans of the Golf Club gave battle on Finals Day. The excitement was palpable and the defribulator on stand-bye in case the excitement became too much. There were lots of supporters down to appreciate golf under pressure and pressure there was with in abundance. If I must single one match out for particular comment it would be the Reed Trophy which is the Scratch Handicap Trophy for Juniors. Zac Geddes and Stuart Mitchell had a ding, dong battle with pole position changing regularly. At the 18th they were all square with Stuart 25 ft away and Zac 12 ft from the pin. Stuart holed his monster put throwing the pressure on Zac who shaved the hole but missed. These two are both club champions of the future!
