Medal

29/09/2020

Chilly one again this morning and there is a mist hanging over the course at the moment. There isn't a breath of wind so once this burns off conditions should be excellent for today's Monthly Medal.

September Medal

26/09/2020

Cold again this morning with a light ground frost so Cold Gear gloves could definitely come in useful for the early starters today's September Medal. Once the Sun eventually rises I'm confident this will clear quickly and shouldn't effect the start of play. #underarmour #coldgear #UA #cowglengolfclub #golf #scottishgolf #golfinautumn #glasgowgolf

Cold Start

20/09/2020

A cold start to the day. However, it's meant to brighten up later on and there's to be very little wind. Perfect conditions for a game today.

Cold start again with fog in patches on the course. All greens back in play following the aeration work during the week.

Aeration work almost complete. 15 greens now back in play, only the 14th 15th & 16th to finish.

17/09/2020

Another cold morning with a dew covering much of the course. Just a reminder that greens 1,2,3,4,8,9,11,12 and 17 are all back to full greens. Michael hopes to have most of the other full greens back in play by the end of the day.


16/09/2020

Aeration work continues on what is a very fesh start to the day. Michael is hopeful of getting some full greens back into play and I will do my best to update if/when this happens. Unfortunately due to ground conditions buggies will not be permitted today.

Titleist Ball Fitting Event

15/09/2020

Two fantastic ball fitting experiences to choose from 1. Performance Ball Fitting- using ProV1's /AVX and Trackman, you will hit wedges, 7 irons and Drivers to determine what is the best performance ball for your game. 2. Preference Ball Fit - Using all Titleist models, the fitter will discuss performance benefits of each of the balls whilst hitting a variety of short game shots to determine what ball is best for you. Both fittings take 25 mins per fit and booking is essential which can be made by following the link: https://titleistclubfittingevents.as.me/Cowglen #PROV1 #Provingit #TSProject # Fasterthanyours #U500 #TS #SM8 #ScottyCameron #Trackman #cowglengolf #glasgowgolf #scottishgolf #braidcourse

Dr. William (Bill) Gibson

01/09/2020

Very sad to learn of the passing of Dr. William (Bill ) Gibson. Bill who was 79 and who had been a member for some 62 years having joined in 1959 passed away yesterday following a brave fight with illness in recent years. As Club Captain in 1986, Bill was instrumental in one of the the most significant chapters in the club's history when we purchased the course. A true gentleman, he will be sadly missed by all who knew him at the club. Our thoughts are with his family and friends at this sad time.
