Another very cold start to the day, lets hope the snow stays away.


05/05/2021

Gorgeous but once again a very cold start to the day. #cowglengolfclub #scotland #golf #glasgow #braiddesign #cowglengolfclubproshop


04/05/2021

Happy Star Wars Day, May the 4th be with you! Very cool once again and definitely looks and feels like more rain is on its its way so conditions for today's Spring meeting will be tricky. #cowglengolfclub #golf #starwarsday #jamesbraidcourse #scotland #cowglengolfclubproshop

03/05/2021

Very fresh again but dry at the moment. Fingers crossed the forecasters have got it wrong as unfortunately it doesn't look great for later in the day. Typical bank holiday Monday! #cowglengolfclub #jamesbraiddesign #golf #bankholiday #glasgow #cowglengolfclubproshop


Lovely start to the day

02/05/2021

A lovely start to the day as the sun is shining, it is slightly chilly just now but as the day goes on I'm sure it will warm up. I'm sure all greens will be in play today, all in all a lovely day for a game.


Spring Meeting

01/05/2021

Although still chilly at only 2 degrees the current conditions are excellent for today's Spring Meeting . The definition of the course is really starting to take shape with the hand cut approaches and narrow collars making a huge difference. #cowglengolfclub #golf #greenkeeping #jamesbraid #glasgow #scotland #cowglengolfclubproshop


30/04/2021

A gorgeous start to the day although it's still only 2 degrees and incredibly for the time of year there is frost which is still covering the shaded parts of the course. #cowglengolfclub #golf #scotland #braidgolfcourse #cowglengolfclubproshop


29/04/2021

Stunning morning, absolutely perfect for a game. #cowglengolfclub #jamesbraidcourse #golf #drone #scotland #glasgow #cowglengolfclubproshop


28/04/2021

Still not warm but other than that conditions are currently excellent for a game. #cowglengolfclub #golf #scotland #jamesbraiddesign #cowglengolfclubproshop


27/04/2021

Despite it still being on the chilly side conditions are currently absolutely perfect for today's Medal. #cowglengolfclub #braiddesign #glasgow #golf #cowglengolfclubproshop


Open!

26/04/2021

After four long months it's fantastic to have everything open once again and be able to welcome members back into the Pro Shop, Lounge and outside for a post round refreshment! #cowglengolfclub #golf #dronepics #glasgow #scotland #cowglengolfclubproshop


Lovely start to the day

25/04/2021

A nice start to the day for the stroke today, good luck to everyone that is playing. However, it's a lovely day just for a game, all full greens will be in play today.


24/04/2021

It's against a very grey sky but it's always great to get the flag up to signal the first Medal of the season. Chilly breeze blowing so conditions will be tricky! #cowglengolfclub #golf #glasgow #jamesbraid #cowglengolfclubproshop


Junior Team Victory

23/04/2021

Congratulations to the Junior team on their excellent victory (6-0) against East Renfrewshire tonight. A great bounce back after losing 5 1/2 - 1/2 away against Fereneze ( always a tough away match) last week. #cowglengolfclub #golf #juniorgolf #flemingwatsonleague #glasgow #cowglengolfclubproshop


23/04/2021

Gorgeous start to the day once again although it's still on the chilly side for the time of year with a very light frost lying in the shaded parts of the course. #cowglengolfclub #golf #dronepics #glasgow #dronephotography #braiddesigns #cowglengolfclubproshop


22/04/2021

A freezing start to the day which will hopefully heat up quickly and make for a great day for golf.


21/04/2021

Chilly once again but nonetheless stunning morning. #cowglengolfclub #golf #scotland #jamesbraiddesign #glasgow #cowglengolfclubproshop


20/04/2021

A little rain starting to fall but otherwise conditions a currently excellent for today's Stroke competition. #cowglengolfclub #golf #droneshots #glasgow #braiddesigns #cowglengolfclubproshop

Perfect start the week. #cowglengolfclub #golf #glasgow #jamesbraid #cowglengolfclubproshop


Hole In One!

18/04/2021

Many congratulations to Andy Moodie who had a Hole in One at the 12th in yesterday's Satableford. Not a bad way to start the competitive season! #cowglengolfclub #holeinone #ace #golf #glasgow #scotland #jamesbraiddesign #cowglengolfclubproshop


An overcast start to the day

18/04/2021

An overcast start to the day, with very fine rain falling currently. The course is open and all full greens should be in play. I will update if I hear differently, but it's very likely all 18 full greens will be in play today.


17/04/2021

Couldn't ask for a better start to the day for our first Saturday competition of the year. There is a frost lying again but I don't think it will effect play and will hopefully burn away soon. #cowglengolfclub #golf #scotland #glasgow #braiddesign #cowglengolfclubproshop


16/04/2021

New pins and hole cups put out today ( prior to the frost lifting completely from the course) Another little step as the course gets better with each passing day. #cowglengolfclub #golf #greenkeeping #scotland #jamesbraiddesign #cowglengolfclubproshop


16/04/2021

Chilly once again but another stunning start to the day. Temporary greens will be in play until the frost lifts which shouldn't be too long for those that aren't in shade. #cowglengolfclub #golf #frostymorning #glasgow #braiddesigns #cowglengolfclubproshop


15/04/2021

A very cold start to the day but all greens are on and it should heat up to be another good day for a game.


14/04/2021

What a day now! The course is really starting to take shape and will only continue to improve in this weather. #cowglengolfclub #golf #scotland #droneshots #cowglengolfclubproshop


13/04/2021

Here we go! Conditions are currently absolutely perfect . Couldn't ask for a better start for the first competition of the year. All the very best to all members for the season ahead. #cowglengolfclub #golf #stableford #scottishgolf #braiddesigns #cowglengolfclubproshop


12/04/2021

Just to confirm that all greens are now in play. #cowglengolfclub #golf #glasgow #braiddesign #cowglengolfclubproshop


12/04/2021

Carbon copy of last few days, gorgeous but freezing! Temporary greens in play until the frost lifts. Buggies will be permitted once frost lifts. #cowglengolfclub #golf #scotland #frostymorning #braidgolfcourse #cowglengolfclubproshop


All 18 full greens in play

11/04/2021

After inspection from the greenkeepers, all 18 full greens are now in play.


Another cold start

11/04/2021

A cold start with a frost covering the course, the greenkeepers are carrying out an inspection currently. However, I think that all winter greens will be in play today, at least until the frost has lifted. I shall update as and when I hear from them.


10/04/2021

Very cold but gorgeous morning. I suspect temporary greens will be in play until the frost lifts later in the morning as it looks like it's going to be a cracker. #cowglengolfclub #frostygolfcourse #golf #braiddesign #scotland #cowglengolfclubproshop

What a difference a day makes. Chilly but otherwise an absolutely stunning morning. All greens in play. #cowglengolfclub #golf #scotland #braiddesign #cowglengolfclubproshop


08/04/2021

Not a great forecast for today but its dry at the moment and the course is looking good for a game.


07/04/2021

What a difference the recent dry weather has made to the course which is really starting to take shape. #cowglengolfclubproshop #golf #glasgow #scotland #greenkeeping #scottishgolf #braidgolfcourse #cowglengolfclubproshop
