Lovely start to the week


Superb start to the day and week. Quiet day at the club with not reservations or bookings.

Cold Start


Cold start but it looks like it is going to be a nice day. Just a reminder that the ryder cup event is today so the tee is booked from 1-3 for that.



Still pretty dark at the moment but it's dry, relativley mild and there's not much wind to speak of. Once the Sun comes up fully hopefully conditions will be good for today's Stroke.
The 7th tee wiil still be in a forward postion until the damaged tree is cleared fully.

September Weekend


Reasonable start to the day and the September weekend.

Course Closed


Lots of fallen debris from yesterdays storm on the course therefor the course will remain closed until it can be cleared. The stroke competition has been cancelled.

Course Closed


Please be advised that the course has been closed due to high winds and the potential danger of falling branches/trees.

There is already a significant amount of debris on the course/greens which will take time for the greens staff to clear up.
As a consequence tomorrow's competition may not be able to be played.

Seniors Medal


Not a great start to the day but certainly better than the forecast ( at the moment anyway) Seniors have a medal today which the tee is reserved from 09:30 - 10:00 and the Ladies have a Stableford. Other than these it's a relavitely quiet day at the club.



Damp start but it is incredibly mild and there isn't any wind to speak of so all in all pretty good conditions for the Stableford although the greens are still recovering from last weeks work.

Greens recovering well.


Lovely start to the day and the week. Greens are improving everyday following last weeks work and the rest of the course is looking fantastic considering all the rain that has fallen in recent weeks.

Gusty start to the day


It looks like it should be a nice day with some strong winds. There was heavy rain overnight but the course still looks in great condition and perfect for a round today.

Wet Start


Although it will help the greens recover from the aeration work by washing the snd and seed in, thankfully the rain has now stopped. We can only hope that that's it for the day.

Course Aeriation Week


Another quiet day at the club with no competition as the greens recover from aeriation work.

Greens Back In Play


Most if not all greens will be in play today after the aeration work. Top dressing and overseeding completed yesterday which will take a few days to wash in.

Aeration Work Continues


Course aeration work continues. Michael and his team carried out a staggering amount of work yesterday and most greens were completed. There will still be quite a few temporary greens in play again today as they get topdressed and overseeded.

Handicap Champions


Many congratulations to the winners in yesterday's finals:

Gents Singles Champion (Sir John Stirling Maxwell Trophy) Martin Scrimgeour
Ladies Singles Champion (Lady Stirling Maxwell Trophy) Christine Fowler
Gents Foursomes Champions ( Boyd Anderson Trophy) James McBride & Eddy Daly
Gents 50+ Singles Champion ( Pickwell Trophy) Andy Moodie

The Ladies Foursomes and the Secretaries Cup Finals are to be played at a later date.

Aeration Week


Aeration on the greens commences today.

As a consequence of the essential work that Michael and his staff have to carry out there will be temporary greens in play on the holes that are being worked on. In certain circumstances holes that are being worked on may be closed completely which will allow the work to be carried out as quickly as possible.

Handicap Finals day


A bit of a wet start for handicap finals day today, hopefully it holds off for all the matches and we wish everybody competing the best of luck in their match.



Very mild and calm at the moment making for perfect conditions for today's Stroke. We can only hope that it stays like this for the entire weekend with Finals Day tomorrow.

Another great result for Alyson


Massive congratulations to Cowglen's Ladies Champion Alyson McGinnigle (pictured left) who with her partner Carol McNally (Williamwood) scored an emphatic victory in the Commonwealth Spoons Championship at Stirling GC last Sunday. Thier score of 69.5 gave them a huge winning margin of nine shots against a field of 45 teams.

Another pretty good day for the stroke competition with the course in excellent condition.

Cold but another good start to the day.

Tuesday Autumn Meeting


A perfect start to the day and the course is looking great for the Tuesday Autumn Meeting.

Campbell McMillan Trophy


A lovely start to what is a quiet day at the club with no tee reservations or bookings and the course is looking exceptional. The feedback about our course couldn't have been more positive from the visting players in yesterday's Campbell McMillan. Congratulations to Michael Mackenzie (Dullatur GC) who won with a Net 67 playing off 6. Michael won with a B.I.H from Ross Boyle (Harburn GC) 71-4 which was 1 stroke better than a trio of Cowglen players Ryan Woods , Thomas Higgins & Jason Carr. Ryan had the best scratch score with 70.
