In previous years I doubt whether the course would have been open following the rain that fell through the night never mind having buggies and all 18 greens in play. Not surprisingly lots of leaves on the course with the picture of the 9th before being blown giving an idea of what faces the greenstaff at this time of year and the work required to keep the greens, as well as the rest of the course clear for play. #cowglengolfclub #golf #course #greenkeeping #autumnleaves #autumngolf #scotland #braiddesign #cowglengolfclubproshop


Heavy rain overnight

24/10/2021

The course is open after the heavy down pours overnight. The greenkeepers are still carrying out their inspection on the course, there should only be one temporary green on at most according to the greenkeepers. We ask players to take caution when walking round the course with the wet and slippy conditions.

Many thanks to everyone who took part and gave so generously at the Austin Gaughan memorial trophy and to Scott Ralston for organising. A fantastic sum raised for a magnificent cause @ppwhospice #cowglengolfclub

Just starting to get light but already feels like an excellent day for a game. Quite mild , dry and not too much wind ( currently). You can't really ask for much more at this time of year. #cowglengolfclub #golf #glasgow #course #jamesbraidgolfcourse #cowglengolfclubproshop

The trees are really starting to turn which as always brings yet another challenge for our greenstaff to keep the course clear of fallen leaves! #cowglengolfclub #greenkeeping #autumnleaves #thanklessjob #course #glasgow #jamesbraid #cowglengolfclubproshop


21/10/2021

A cold frosty start to the day but no course restrictions and should be a decent day for a game. Buggies will be on once the frost lifts.


20/10/2021

Strong wind blowing and chillier than recent days but it's dry ( for now!) #cowglengolfclub #golf #course #glasgow #braiddesigns #cowglengolfclubproshop


Stableford

19/10/2021

Very mild once again. If the wind and rain stay away conditions will be ideal for today's Stableford. #cowglengolfclub #golf #stableford #course #jamesbraidcourse #cowglengolfclubproshop

Course open

17/10/2021

The course is open and there are few puddles visible from the clubhouse area. This is a big credit to Michael and his team after the heavy rain overnight, the course has held up immaculately for the Stableford today.


16/10/2021

Thankfully a milder start to the day than yesterday with no frost in sight, a pretty decent day for a game.


15/10/2021

Quite a change in the weather over night with temperatures plummeting, definitely time to dig out the winter gear. A heavy frost covers the course at the moment so there will be no buggies until it lifts.


14/10/2021

A bit blustery this morning but the course is still looking superb for the time of year.


13/10/2021

Hard to believe it's almost the middle of October! #cowglengolfclub #golf #october #course #scotland #braiddesign #cowglengolfclubproshop


12/10/2021

Another perfect morning for the stroke competition.


11/10/2021

A nice mild dry start to the school holidays, perfect day for a game.


Lovely start to the day

10/10/2021

A lovely morning for a game of golf currently with the sun breaking through already. Hopefully it will remain like this for the rest of the day. A much needed break in the bad weather we have seen of late.


08/10/2021

Incredibly mild for the time of year and there isn't a breath of wind so despite the light rain conditions are currently excellent. #cowglengolfclub #golf #course #scotland #jamesbraidgolfcourse #cowglengolfclubproshop


07/10/2021

A very mild but damp start to the day.


October Tuesday Medal

05/10/2021

Chilly but otherwise excellent conditions for the last Tuesday Medal of the year. #cowglengolfclub #golf #course #medal #jamesbraidcourse #glasgow #cowglengolfclubproshop


04/10/2021

Another miserable start to the day.


Brighter start to the day

03/10/2021

A nice start to the morning, following on from yesterdays downpours. The course is open with a few small puddles in places. A nice but cold day for a game of golf.


02/10/2021

Raising the flag for the last Medal of the year under moonlight is always done with a mixture of emotions. Where has the season/year gone!!? #cowglengolfclub #golf #moon #morningsky #glasgow #course #jamesbraidcourse #cowglengolfclubproshop


01/10/2021

Not the best start to October! Course looks like it has and is holding up fantastically to the persistent rain. Still waiting to hear from course manager if buggies will be permitted or not. #cowglengolfclub #golf #course #scotland #braiddesign #cowglengolfclubproshop

No buggies on the course today.


30/09/2021

A horrible start to the day and it doesn't look like its going to improve too much.


29/09/2021

Feels colder than yesterday but still a great start to the day for the time of year. #cowglengolfclub #golf #course #autumngolf #glasgow #jamesbraidcourse #cowglengolfclubproshop


28/09/2021

Gorgeous albeit chilly start for today's Medal. The course has held up superbly to all the rain over the past couple of days. #cowglengolfclub #golf #medal #course #braiddesign #cowglengolfclubproshop


27/09/2021

An absolutely miserable morning.
