Lovely start to the day

A nice start to the day with the sun already shining. The greenkeepers are currently carrying out their greens inspection. I shall update you on the greens, once I have heard from them.

New mats in the Academy. These and new yardage markers and chipping nets, that will be positioned on the practice area soon, will enhance our wonderful practice facilities further. Many thanks to the generosity of Past Captain Ian Campbell who bequeathed the club the funds that helped purchase these. #cowglengolfclub #golf #golfpractice #rangesolutions #cowglengolfclubproshop

Excellent morning for a game. Chilly but not as cold as recent days. 12 greens in play once again. #cowglengolfclub #braiddesign #golf #glasgow #cowglengolfclubproshop

Always great to see the fairways getting thier first cut of the year. Incredible the difference a few days with no rain makes to the course and the work the greenstaff can carry out. #greenkeeper #golf #cowglengolfclub #braidgolfcourse #glasgowgolf #cowglengolfclubproshop


04/03/2021

Another excellent early March morning although a little chilly. 12 full greens on.


03/03/2021

Very cold, but dry and no wind making for decent conditions if you wrap up! The course has really benefitted from the dry weather recently and is improving every day. 12 full greens in play. #cowglengolfclub #golf #scottishgolf #braiddesigns #cowglengolfclubproshop


02/03/2021

Chilly start but hopefully things will warm up again like yesterday when these pics were taken. The difference a few dry days and some heat makes is incredible. 12 greens in play once again. #spring #golf #greenkeeper #cowglengolfclub #braiddesign #cowglengolfclubproshop


01/03/2021

There is a fog hanging over the course. Visibility at the moment is right on the limit for play being permitted. If things get worse play may have to be delayed. I will post with any updates. Greens status should be the same as the weekend with 12 in play. #fog #golf #foggygolfcourse #cowglengolfclub #braiddesigns #cowglengolfclubproshop

An overcast start to the day

The course is open today, and the greenkeepers are currently carrying out their greens inspection. I shall update once I have heard from them. Overall, a nice day for a game of golf.

27/02/2021

A perfect morning for a game with just a slight chill in the air. Hopefully there should be at least 11 full greens are on, inspection still ongoing.

12 full greens are on.


26/02/2021

Absolutely stunning day and Michael has been able to 11 greens back in play. Weather permitting, this will be the same tomorrow. #cowglengolfclub #golf #braiddesign #cowglengolfclubproshop


26/02/2021

Chilly but gorgeous start to the day. Course really starting to take shape as we head towards the season with all bunkers being weeded and raked yesterday. Temporary greens remain in play as the Gradening work is completed. The greens that were done first will start to get put into play (weather depending) from Monday at latest. #greenkeeping #winterwork #braidgolfcourse #cowglengolfclubproshop #golf #cowglengolfclubproshop


25/02/2021

Not bad conditions after another wet night. All temporary greens are still in play


24/02/2021

Apart from the stiff breeze that's blowing, conditions are currently excellent for a game. Temporary greens are still in play as the work on them and recovery continues #cowglengolfclub #braiddesigns #golf #cowglengolfclubproshop


23/02/2021

The course is currently still open despite the horrendous weather. I will update if this status changes. What a difference from yesterday when the greenstaff where able to finish the gradening work on more of the greens. This is the 12th. #greenkeeping #cowglengolfclub #glasgow #greensworks #golf #cowglengolfclubproshop


22/02/2021

Gorgeous start to the week and for the time of year conditions really couldn't be much better. Temporary greens in play as the programme of work and recovery continues. #cowglengolfclub #braidcourse #golf #scottishgolf #cowglengolfclubproshop


All winter greens in play today

21/02/2021

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


Windy Start

21/02/2021

A nice start to the morning with very few clouds overhead. The course is open, and the greenkeepers are currently carrying out their greens inspection. I suspect that all winter greens will be in play today, but I shall update once I hear from them.


20/02/2021

The course is open with temporary greens are in play. It's still very wet underfoot however the difference from yesterday is phenomenal. #drainage #greenkeeping #wintergolf #cowglengolfclub #golf #cowglengolfclubproshop


19/02/2021

The greenstaff have just taken to the decision to close the course. Despite the ground being completely saturated due to the persistent heavy rain it's great to see evidence that the drainage project on the first is working well as this would have flooded in the past under these conditions. #draingework #greenkeeping #golf #cowglengolfclub #cowglengolfclubproshop


19/02/2021

Despite the horrendous weather conditions the course is open with temporary greens in play. #windandrain #wintergolf #scottishweather #golf #cowglengolfclub #glasgow #cowglengolfclubproshop


18/02/2021

A pretty wild night with high winds and rain but the course remains open with all temp greens in play.


17/02/2021

Cold strong wind blowing but otherwise a reasonable start to the day. Temporary surfaces in play as Gradening work and recovery continue. The picture is of the 17th which was completed yesterday. #greenkeeping #winterwork #golf #cowglengolfclub #wintegolf #cowglengolfclubproshop


16/02/2021

The gradening work on the greens which removes thatch down to 1 inch and replaces it with dried kiln sand commences again following the recent poor weather. #greenkeeping #golfcourse #winterwork #cowglengolfclub #golf #braidgolfcourse #cowglengolfclubproshop


16/02/2021

Excellent conditions for a game this morning. Temporary greens are in play due to ground conditions and work continuing on the greens. #cowglengolfclub #braidcourse #dronepics #golf #cowglengolfclubproshop #wintergolf


15/02/2021

Great to see the course clear of snow and open again. Not surprisingly after the thaw the ground is very wet so all greens are on temporary surfaces. #wintergolf #cowglengolfclub #droneshots #glasgow #cowglengolfclubproshop #braidgolfcourse


14/02/2021

Still totally covered!! #snowygolfcourse #snow #cowglengolfclub #glasgow #cowglengolfclubproshop


13/02/2021

Unfortunately but not surprising given the temperatures the course is still completely covered. #snowygolfcourse #cowglengolfclub #scottishwinter #cowglengolfclubproshop


12/02/2021

With the severely low temperatures unfortunately it doesn't look like this will shift anytime soon. #snow #winterwonderland #cowglengolfclub #snowyscenes #cowglengolfclubproshop


11/02/2021

It does look stunning but we'd all love this to be gone to be able to get back on the course and playing our signature hole once again. #greatgolfholes #winterwonderland #snowyscenes #snowygolfcourse #signaturehole #cowglengolfclub


10/02/2021

Pictures say it all! #snowycourse #snow #cowglengolfclub #glasgow #cowglengolfclubproshop


09/02/2021

I'm sure it's no surprise that the course is closed. #snow #snowygolfcourse #cowglengolfclub #glasgow #winter #cowglengolfclubproshop

What a difference an hour makes!! What a country! #snow #winter #wintergolf #scottishweather #golf #cowglengolfclub


08/02/2021

It's cold but you probably couldn't ask for a better morning at this time of year. Temporary greens are in play as the ground is still frozen but it's not rock solid on the surface. #wintergolf #wintersun #cold #cowglengolfclub #braidgolfcourse #scottishgolf #cowglengolfclubproshop
