Greenstaff making excellent progress with the work to improve drainage of the practice area. #winterprojects #winterwork #rain #drainage #drainagesolutions #golf #club #cowglengolfclub


24/11/2020

With 20mm of rain falling through the night the course has been closed. If there is any change to this status I will update. #rain #cowglengolfclubproshop #winter #club #golf #golfcourse #glasgow #cowglengolfclub


23/11/2020

Greenstaff already had at work as the sun just started to rise this morning improving the drainage on the practice area and the car park. Early indications are the status will be similar to yesterday with 16 greens in play. If this changes I will update as soon as I hear. #winterprojects #drainage #alwaysgettingbetter #winter #wintergolf #golfinscotland #greens #golfcoursemaintenance #golf #glasgowgolf #cowglengc #cowglengolfclub


16 full greens in play

22/11/2020

After inspection from the greenkeepers, 16 full greens are in play, the 2 winter greens are 12 and 18.


Another wet night

22/11/2020

A nice start to the morning after another wet night. The course is open, the greenkeepers are currently carrying out their greens inspection. Once I have heard from them I shall post further details.


21/11/2020

Quite pleasant conditions at the moment however after the rain through the night there is a possibility of some temporary greens being in play. Course is still being inspected and as soon as I hear from greenstaff I will update.


20/11/2020

Not a bad start to the day but I fear the rain is on its way. As far as i know (as its still dark) the course is open and most greens are on, if anything changes I will post.

16 full greens on today.


19/11/2020

Considerably better weather than the last couple of days although a lot colder. The course is open with a mix of full and temp greens, once we know how many of each I will post.

15 full greens are now in play.


Course Closed

18/11/2020

Unfortunately due to the poor weather conditions today, the course will be closed for the rest of the day.


18/11/2020

Another wet and windy start to the day. Course is open however looks like there will be temporary greens in play on all holes. #cowglengolfclub #winter #golf #wintergolf #rain #wind #glasgow #golfinnovember #golfinscotland #scottishgolf #glasgowgolf #braidgolfcourse #cowglengolfclubproshop


17/11/2020

Conditions are currently awful. The course is still open however given the rain that has fallen all greens are likely to be on temporary surfaces. #wind #rain #winter #wintergolf #golfinnovember #golf #golfinwinter #cowglengolfclub #cowglengc #braidgolfcourse #braidcourse #club #scottishgolf #golfinscotland #scottishwinter


8 Temporary greens in play

15/11/2020

After the greenkeepers inspection 8 temporary greens have been put in play. Temporary greens are in play on holes 2,4,5,7,10,12,13 and 18.


Another wet night

15/11/2020

The course is abit wet underfoot after another night of steady rainfall. The course is open, I am just waiting to hear from the greenkeepers regarding what greens are on.


14/11/2020

Another very wet night and damp morning meaning the course is open but most likely with some temporary greens, inspection still currently being carried out.

9 full greens and 9 temp greens in play


Winter Rules

13/11/2020

Not a great start to the day weather wise and 10mm of rain overnight might mean that some temporary greens have to be brought into play. Winter rules commence today with fairways being marked with stakes and white lines, rake and place in bunkers and mats required when playing from the fairway. #wintergolf #golf #golfinnovember #rain #wind #club #braidgolfcourse #cowglengc #cowglengolf #braidcourse #cowglengolfclub


12/11/2020

Clear skies after a wet and windy night, course inspection happening as I type hopefully most if not all full greens will be on.


11/11/2020

The forecast isn't great however conditions are currently pretty good for the time of year. All greens in play, very mild and no wind. #golf #openinghole #club #glasgowgolf #autumngolf #autumninglasgow #scottishgolf #cowglengolf #braidgolfcourse #cowglengolfclub

09/11/2020

Thick fog shrouding the course at the moment. Very mild though, not a breath of wind and all greens are on and being cut. We just need the fog to lift which hopefully it will soon. #foggygolfcourse #foggymorning #fog #golfcourse #golf #golfinautumn #glasgowgolf #glasgow #club #hittingitoutofsight #cowglengolfclub #cowglengolfclubproshop #cowglengc

All Greens in play today

08/11/2020

After the inspection from the greenkeepers, I can confirm that all 18 full greens will be in play today.


Another cold start

08/11/2020

A cold start to the day. The course is open today, the greenkeepers are currently carrying out their course inspection. However, I am confident that most, if not all full greens will be in play today. A reminder to all those playing today that there will be a 2 minute moment of silence at 11 o'clock for Remembrance Day today.


07/11/2020

What a difference an hour or so makes. Fog has cleared significantly. #autumngolf #braidcourse #glasgow #club #autumninglasgow #glasgowgolf #cowglengc #cowglengolfclub #autumncolours #golf #saturdaygolf #autumninscotland #scottishgolf


07/11/2020

Foggy currently however visibility is good enough to allow play and hopefully it will burn away as the Sun comes up as although it's a bit on the chilly side it's dry there is not a breath of wind and as far as know 18 greens are in play as they were yesterday. #golf #golfcourse #golfinautumn #autumn #fog #foggymorning #foggy #foggygolfcourse #glasgowgolf #scottishgolf #glasgow #club #cowglengc #cowglengolf #braidgolfcourse

I doubt you could ask for a better November morning. Not a breath of wind and very mild. Ideal conditions for a game. #autumngolf #november #autumncolours #autumninglasgow #golf #autumn #autumninscotland #par5 #scottishgolf #cowglengolf #cowglengolfclub #braidgolfcourse #glasgowgolf #braidcourse

Clearing the leaves at this time of year (especially on holes like the 2nd) is a monumental and thankless task for the greenstaff. Needs to be done but unfortunately doesn't stay like this too long! #autumncolours #autumn #autumnleaves #autumngolf #golf #autumninglasgow #autumninscotland #fall #thanklessjob #golfinscotland #golfcourse #cowglengolf #cowglengc #cowglengolfclub #cowglengolfclubproshop


05/11/2020

Not a bad start to the day and hopefully will stay that way. All full greens are on with the exception of the 7th.


8th hole

04/11/2020

Latest images of the work to clear the area in front of the 8th tee.


04/11/2020

Lovely morning for a game and most full greens will be in play. #autumngolf #autumnleaves #autumncolours #autumninglasgow #autumninscotland #golfinautumn #golf #golfinscotland #golf #scottishgolf #glasgowgolf #cowglengolf #cowglengolfclub #cowglengc #cowglengolfclubproshop


03/11/2020

The weather is miserable at the moment though the course is open albeit with temporary greens in play. #autumn #autumngolf #autumninscotland #autumninglasgow #glasgow #glasgowgolf #golf #braidgolfcourse #braidcourse #glasgowgolf #scottishgolf #cowglengolf #cowglengolfclub #cowglengolfclubproshop


Lounge Open

02/11/2020

Great to have the blinds back up and the lounge open for members and their guests once again.


02/11/2020

The course is currently being inspected. Michael is confident that it'll open in within the hour however most if not all greens will be on temporary surfaces. #autumncolours #autumngolf #golfinautumn #autumn #golf #glasgow #glasgowgolf #scotlandinautumn #scottishgolf #cowglengolf #braidgolfcourse #braidcourse #cowglengolfclub #cowglengolfclubproshop


Course Closed

01/11/2020

After another night of heavy rainfall, the course will be closed today. With the forecast for it to rain for much of the day I doubt it will open today.


31/10/2020

Strong gusty winds and rain forecast is not ideal for golf but the course is open with 3 or 4 temp greens in play.


All Greens in play.

30/10/2020

All 18 greens now back in play


30/10/2020

Really nice morning for a game. There is a course inspection currently taking place to assess the greens. As soon as I hear how many full greens will be in play I'll update. #autumn #autumngolf #autumninscotland #golf #golfinscotland #golfcourse #golfnorth #glasgowgolf #scottishgolf #braidgolfcourse #braidcourse #cowglengolf #cowglengolfclubproshop #cowglengolfclub


29/10/2020

A pretty awful forecast today but the course is open all be it with temporary greens and no buggies.


28/10/2020

The conditions might not be perfect for golf at this time of year but at least we can enjoy the colours which are simply stunning. #autumn #autumncolours #golf #scottishgolf #glasgowgolf #golfinscotland #golfnorth #cowglengolf #cowglengolfclub #cowglengolfclubproshop #braidgolfcourse #braidcourse


27/10/2020

Incredible sunrise over the practice area this morning. Conditions are currently pretty good for the time of year. Dry with not much wind and not too cold.


26/10/2020

Not the best start to the day/week! The course is holding up well and is currently open though this may change if the rain continues. An Update will be posted if there is a change to the course status.
