Very cold (-3 at the moment) so temporary greens in play. #frozensolid #frost #frostygolfcourse #freezing #winter #freezingcold #wintergolf #cowglengolfclub #frozencourse #golf #club #scotland #scottishwinter #cowglengolfclubproshop

Possibly as good as it gets at this time of year. There is just enough frost in the ground to give the ground a firmness without being rock solid, dry and not a breath of wind. Temporary greens will be in play due to the frost and the ongoing work. #winter #wintergolf #cowglengolfclub #golf #glasgow #january #golfinscotland #jamesbraiddesign #course #scottishgolf #club #scotland #groundfrost #cold #braidgolfcourse #cowglengolfclubproshop #braidcourse

Gradening Work

19/01/2021

Work commences on Gradening the greens. Over the next few weeks this process of deep scarifying the surface of the green down to 25mm(1 inch) removes the thatch and replaces it with kiln dried sand allowing water to infiltrate the drains and more oxygen into the upper profile. It also allows harmful gases to be released. In total 30tonnes of sand will be put into the greens creating firmer surfaces. #winterprojects #winterwork #greens #golf #course #cowglengolfclub #braidcourse #scottishgolf #glasgowgolf #cowglengolfclubproshop #greenkeeping #greenkeeper


19/01/2021

I've still to hear from the greenstaff however I think most if not all greens will be on temporary surfaces. I will update if this status changes. #golf #cowglengolfclub #winter #wintergolf #scotland #club #braidcourse #cowglengolfclubproshop #golfinjanuary #golfinwinter #scottishgolf #glasgow #braidgolfcourse


18/01/2021

The course is open however given the rain through the night I expect all greens to be on temporary surfaces. #wintergolf #wet #rain #golfinjanuary #winter #golfinwinter #cowglengolfclub #club #golf #course #braidcourse #jamesbraiddesign #cowglengolfclubproshop

Saturated!

16/01/2021

With the heavy rain through the night on top of the snow melting, the course is absolutely saturated and therefore will remain closed.


16/01/2021

Course inspection taking place. As soon as I hear status I will update.


15/01/2021

No change this morning. Course remains closed. #snow #snowyscene #snowygolfcourse #snowy #glasgow #winter #scottishwinter #cold #golf #cowglengolfclub #course #club #cowglengolfclubproshop #glasgow

The course remains closed. Too many areas of black ice throughout the course. There is a thaw on however not enough at this time. The next inspection will be tomorrow. #frozen #frozensolid #ice #blackice #golf #golfcourse #club #winter #cowglengolf #cowglengc #cowglengolfclub #cowglengolfclubproshop

Probably not surprising that the course will remain closed again today. #frozensolid #snow #snowygolfcourse #scotlandinwinter #freezing #freezingcold #golf #club #winter #golfphotography #golfphotos #dronephotography #droneshots #cowglengolfclub #cowglengolfclubproshop #glasgow #drone

07/01/2021

Unfortunately a little more snow fall on top of already unplayable conditions means the course, clubhouse and carpark will remain closed today.


06/01/2021

Given the current temperature (-5) and the ice on the course I doubt whether it will open following the greenstaff's inspection. If it does I will update. #frozensolid #frozen #ice #freezing #freezingcold #frozengolfcourse #frost #braidgolfcourse #golf #scottishwinter #glasgow #cowglengolfclub #glasgowgolf #winter #january #cowglengolfclubproshop

The course is still covered in black ice and therefore will remain closed today. #frozen #ice #frost #frostygolfcourse #freezingcold #freezing #golf #winter #cowglengc #scottishwinter #scotland #scottishgolf #glasgow #golfcourse #cowglengolfclubproshop #cowglengolfclub


04/01/2021

As a consequence of the rain through the night and the freezing conditions causing lots of black ice the course will be closed today. #frozen #freezing #frosty #ice #frozengolfcourse #wintergolf #winter #golf #scottishwinter #scotland #cowglengolfclub #glasgow #glasgowinwinter #cowglengolfclubproshop #scottishgolf #glasgowgolf


Course Open. All temporary greens in play

03/01/2021

A cold start to the day. The course is open today with a light dusting of snow covering much of the course. Unsuprisingly all 18 winter greens will be in play today, and we ask that members and their guests are careful when playing as some parts of the course will be icy.
