Another very windy and very Grey start making for challenging conditions for those playing in the Seniors match against Haggs Castle ( good luck to the Cowglen team) and the ladies Margaret Anderson Quiach. #cowglengolfclub #golf #match #seniorsgolf #ladiesgolf #scotland #jamesbraidcourse #cowglengolfclubproshop


02/08/2022

Tricky scoring conditions for today's Stableford competition with a strong albeit warm wind blowing.

Unfortunately the junior development team lost 4-1 away to Cathcart Castle last night. It was always going to be a tough match given the different format of not only giving strokes but also distance with players playing from different tees based on handicap but it was great to see some of the younger members playing, including 10 year old debutant Lucy Ralph at 10 years old stepping in to play her first match and get a taste of team golf

We have a great young squad including 7 year old Michael Ferns who played in the previous development match at Bonnyton.
Well done to everyone who played these games.
