A lovely start to the day after last nights rain, perfect for a game of golf.


18/05/2022

A lot of rain through the night however the course has held up superbly. Very very windy again making for challenging playing conditions. #cowglengolfclub #golf #glasgow #jamesbraidgolfcourse #scotland #cowglengolfclubproshop

Not the best start to the week as it's pretty miserable currently! Hopefully the rain stops and things brighten up soon! #cowglengolfclub #golf #course #glasgow #braidgolfcourse #scotland #cowglengolfclubproshop

Another mixed bag of weather for the first Brand Putter match of the year here against East Renfrewshire Golf Club (Tee reserved 5.15pm-6.30pm), best of luck to them and the Senior Friendship League team who are away to East Ren.

Very similar to yesterday. In between showers it's really nice albeit windy and the course is looking fantastic. #cowglengolfclub #braiddesign #scotland #cowglengolfclubproshop


10/05/2022

The course has held up fantastically to yesterday's and this morning's rain. Thankfully this has stopped however there is lots of cloud about and a stiff cold wind blowing so conditions for today's Stableford will be challenging. The greens will no be mown but holes moved to high spots. Bunkers being raked. Buggies permitted. #cowglengolfclub #golf #stableford #braidgolfcourse #scotland #cowglengolfclubproshop

Some rain in the air but overall conditions are currently quite pleasant. #cowglengolfclub #jamesbraidcourse #scotland #cowglengolfclubproshop

Couldn't ask for a better start to the day. Conditions are absolutely perfect for today's Spring meeting. #cowglengolfclub #golf #competition #braidgolfcourse #scotland #cowglengolfclubproshop

A bit of a damp start. Just a case of getting the waterproofs on, the umbrella up and getting out there! #cowglengolfclub #golf #braiddesign #glasgow #scotland #cowglengolfclubproshop
