Aeration Work

14/09/2021

Huge amount of work completed yesterday by Michael and his team as the Gradening work to aerate the greens commenced. Always looks horrendous when first done but recovery is generally very quick and the long term benefits are significant. #cowglengolfclub #greens #golf #greenkeeping #aeration #scotland #jamesbraidgolfcourse #cowglengolfclubproshop

Stephen MacInness: Gent's Handicap Singles Champion 2021

11/09/2021

The Final of the Gent's Handicap Singles Championship for the Sir John Stirling Maxwell Trophy (the club's oldest trophy) took place this afternoon between 2019 winner Eddie Daly and Stephen Macinnes. Many congratulations to Stephen who won the final 5&4. Playing off 12, Stephen was only 4 over par on a very blustery day. He'll be hoping for more of the same form tomorrow in the final Ward Salver. #cowglengolfclub #golf #matchplay #glasgowgolfunion #scottishgolf #trophy #cowglengolfclubproshop

Good luck to everybody playing in the Austin Gaughan Memorial Trophy today.
