It has been decided that as we have played no competitions this season, this years subscriptions will be rolled forward to next year. For those members paying by Standing Order this should be amended to cover next year- 2021-2022.
In accordance with the current guidance from Scottish Golf, the committee has decided to cancel the remainder of the competitions scheduled for this year, with the exception of the Winter Foursomes. It has also been decided to run a Plate competition alongside this.
Should the guidance from Scottish Golf change the situation may be reviewed.
It is with regret that we announce the death of former County Captain Jennifer Kinloch on Tuesday 7th July. Jennifer was an Honorary life member of Cardross Golf Club and past Captain of Buchanan Golf club.
With the continuing uncertainty on access to golf courses and clubhouse facilities it has been decided not to play any county competitions scheduled for July. Discussions are currently taking place regarding competitions later in the year and it is hoped that we will be able to play some competitions towards the end of the season. Once the situation is clarified an update will be provided.
Due to the continuing threat from the Covid-19 virus and with the agreement of the 4 West County Captains, it has been decided to cancel the following competitions:
West of Scotland Championship – 10th May
Junior Inter County matches (Kennedy Salver) – 1st June
Inter County Foursomes Final – 2nd June
West Inter County matches (Jamboree) 15th-17th June
In light of the ongoing COVID-19 situation the Committee has now agreed to cancel all County competitions until the end of June. The situation will be kept under review and further updates posted. In the meantime take care and keep safe.
In the current situation it has been reluctantly decided to cancel/postpone the County Championship and the Intercounty Foursomes/Commonwealth Spoons (qualifying rounds). The final of the Winter Foursomes scheduled for 28th March has also been postponed until later in the year. The committee will keep the situation under review and further updates will be posted.
The finals of this years winter foursomes will take place on Saturday 28th March at Douglas Park Golf Club at 1.30 pm.
Finalists are Karen McIlvaney and Audrey Adams playing Laura McGeachy and Lorraine Campbell.
Spectators welcome and remember to wear your blue.
