Closed

24/10/2020

Conditions are currently absolutely horrendous so probably not surprising that the course is closed


23/10/2020

Not a great start to the day but great to see how far the greens have come on since the aeration work when they were hand cut a couple of days ago.


Work at 8 continues

22/10/2020

Work continues on clearing the slope at the 8th to significantly improve the aesthetics and playability of our signature hole. It would be fair to say that the guys have come across the odd ball here and there during this work!


22/10/2020

A mild and dry start to the day, hopefully it stays like that for the rest of the day after all the rain this week. Unfortunately no buggies.


New Temporary Surfaces

21/10/2020

Although temporary greens are not what anyone wants unfortunately they are inevitable in this country during the Winter months. Here we are preparing areas (for next Winter) on the 7th and the 10th which will significantly improve these holes when temporary surfaces are the only option.


Open

21/10/2020

The course is Open once again and conditions , mild , dry with no real wind are currently excellent for game.


Course closed. Inspection at 11am

20/10/2020

With 23mm of rain falling yesterday the course will remain closed. There will be an inspection at 11am.

Many congratulations to Moira Kerr and Norrie Gibson who won the Mixed Foursome Championship for the Secretary's Cup yesterday. There fantastic Net score of 67 (88 - 21) was 7 shots better than Fiona Cameron and Peter Hutchinson who had an excellent gross 82 - 8.


19/10/2020

Rather than posting how miserable a start to the day it is I thought it far better to post another image of our stunning course in all its Autumn glory. As for the current status, the course is open for play. If this changes I will update asap. #autumn #golfinautumn #glasgowgolf #braidgolfcourse #braidcourse #golf #scottishgolf #cowglengolf #cowglengolfclub

You cant ask for much better in mid October, flat calm and not too cold. Stableford on today.


Lovely start to the day

16/10/2020

It's a lovely start to the day with clear skies at the moment. However, it is cold just now, hopefully once the sun comes up it will warm up abit. It looks like it will be a great day for a game.

Jimmy Boyle

The club would also like to send it's best wishes to long serving member Jimmy Boyle, who is sadly playing his last game at the club today.

It's an overcast start to the day with light rain falling at the moment. The forecast is for it to be dry for most of the day. So an ideal day for a game.

A pretty damp drizzly start to today's stroke competition, hopefully it clears up soon.

It's a horrible start to the day with heavy rain and dark skies at the moment. Hopefully the weather will clear up abit and make it a nice day for a game.

Cold Start

09/10/2020

A clear cold start to the day but the over night rain has unfortunately made it too wet for buggies, so no buggies on today.


08/10/2020

A pretty good autumnal day being mild and dry, you cant ask for much better at this time of year for a game.


Major Drainage Project Underway

07/10/2020

Work commenced yesterday and is well underway on a major project to improve drainage on the first hole and bottom part of the course that will hopefully mean that flooding in this area will be a thing of the past.


07/10/2020

Fairly strong and cold wind blowing already this morning. If anything hopefully it will keep the dark clouds moving and the rain away!


Medal

06/10/2020

The camera makes it significantly lighter than it is as it's still very dull at the moment. Despite this however the current conditions are reasonably pleasant for the time and year and for Today's Medal (the final one of the year!) How'd that happen!!

Frost

02/10/2020

Spectacular full moon over a frosty course this morning.


Dry & cool

01/10/2020

A damp start to the day but it looks like its going to clear up and be pretty decent for a game.


30/09/2020

A very Grey and Autumnal start to the day and the rain is currently not too heavy so currently still very playable conditions.


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.

Many congratulations to 73 year old Gordon Boyd who had a Hole in One at the 16th today. #holeinone #greatshot #ace #greatgolfholes #braidcourse #braidgolfcourse #cowglengolfclub #glasgowgolf #scottishgolf #noneedtoputt

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
