22/04/2021

A freezing start to the day which will hopefully heat up quickly and make for a great day for golf.


21/04/2021

Chilly once again but nonetheless stunning morning. #cowglengolfclub #golf #scotland #jamesbraiddesign #glasgow #cowglengolfclubproshop


20/04/2021

A little rain starting to fall but otherwise conditions a currently excellent for today's Stroke competition. #cowglengolfclub #golf #droneshots #glasgow #braiddesigns #cowglengolfclubproshop

Perfect start the week. #cowglengolfclub #golf #glasgow #jamesbraid #cowglengolfclubproshop


Hole In One!

18/04/2021

Many congratulations to Andy Moodie who had a Hole in One at the 12th in yesterday's Satableford. Not a bad way to start the competitive season! #cowglengolfclub #holeinone #ace #golf #glasgow #scotland #jamesbraiddesign #cowglengolfclubproshop


An overcast start to the day

18/04/2021

An overcast start to the day, with very fine rain falling currently. The course is open and all full greens should be in play. I will update if I hear differently, but it's very likely all 18 full greens will be in play today.


17/04/2021

Couldn't ask for a better start to the day for our first Saturday competition of the year. There is a frost lying again but I don't think it will effect play and will hopefully burn away soon. #cowglengolfclub #golf #scotland #glasgow #braiddesign #cowglengolfclubproshop


16/04/2021

New pins and hole cups put out today ( prior to the frost lifting completely from the course) Another little step as the course gets better with each passing day. #cowglengolfclub #golf #greenkeeping #scotland #jamesbraiddesign #cowglengolfclubproshop


16/04/2021

Chilly once again but another stunning start to the day. Temporary greens will be in play until the frost lifts which shouldn't be too long for those that aren't in shade. #cowglengolfclub #golf #frostymorning #glasgow #braiddesigns #cowglengolfclubproshop


15/04/2021

A very cold start to the day but all greens are on and it should heat up to be another good day for a game.


14/04/2021

What a day now! The course is really starting to take shape and will only continue to improve in this weather. #cowglengolfclub #golf #scotland #droneshots #cowglengolfclubproshop


13/04/2021

Here we go! Conditions are currently absolutely perfect . Couldn't ask for a better start for the first competition of the year. All the very best to all members for the season ahead. #cowglengolfclub #golf #stableford #scottishgolf #braiddesigns #cowglengolfclubproshop


12/04/2021

Just to confirm that all greens are now in play. #cowglengolfclub #golf #glasgow #braiddesign #cowglengolfclubproshop


12/04/2021

Carbon copy of last few days, gorgeous but freezing! Temporary greens in play until the frost lifts. Buggies will be permitted once frost lifts. #cowglengolfclub #golf #scotland #frostymorning #braidgolfcourse #cowglengolfclubproshop


All 18 full greens in play

11/04/2021

After inspection from the greenkeepers, all 18 full greens are now in play.


Another cold start

11/04/2021

A cold start with a frost covering the course, the greenkeepers are carrying out an inspection currently. However, I think that all winter greens will be in play today, at least until the frost has lifted. I shall update as and when I hear from them.


10/04/2021

Very cold but gorgeous morning. I suspect temporary greens will be in play until the frost lifts later in the morning as it looks like it's going to be a cracker. #cowglengolfclub #frostygolfcourse #golf #braiddesign #scotland #cowglengolfclubproshop

What a difference a day makes. Chilly but otherwise an absolutely stunning morning. All greens in play. #cowglengolfclub #golf #scotland #braiddesign #cowglengolfclubproshop


08/04/2021

Not a great forecast for today but its dry at the moment and the course is looking good for a game.


07/04/2021

What a difference the recent dry weather has made to the course which is really starting to take shape. #cowglengolfclubproshop #golf #glasgow #scotland #greenkeeping #scottishgolf #braidgolfcourse #cowglengolfclubproshop


07/04/2021

Cold again but most importantly dry which is seeing the course get better every day. #cowglengolfclub #golf #dronephotography #glasgow #braidcourse #cowglengolfclubproshop


06/04/2021

Another stunning but cold morning. Temporary greens will be in play until the frost lifts which hopefully won't take too long. #cowglengolfclub #golf #scotland #frost #braidgolfcourse #cowglengolfclubproshop


05/04/2021

Gorgeous morning though it's very cold and there is a light dusting of snow covering the greens at the moment. Despite this all greens are in play as are buggies. #cowglengolfclub #golf #scotland #springsnow #braid #cowglengolfclubproshop


Lovely start to the day

04/04/2021

A lovely start to the day with a clear sky overhead. The greenkeepers are still carrying out their inspection but I am certain that all greens will be in play as conditions are similar to yesterday at the moment. I shall update once I have heard from them.


03/04/2021

Chilly, but looks like it's going to be another cracker. #cowglengolfclubproshop #golf #braidcourse #spring #glasgow #cowglengolfclubproshop


02/04/2021

With the frost lifting all greens are now going back on. #cowglengolfclub #golf #springsunshine #glasgow #cowglengolfclubproshop


02/04/2021

Cold start and due to the frost there will be a mixture of temporary and full greens in play until it lifts. #cowglengolfclub #golf #scotland #braidgolfcourse #cowglengolfclubproshop


01/04/2021

A cold, fresh start to the day but hopefully it'll heat up and should be a pleasant day for a game. All greens are on.


31/03/2021

A perfect morning for a game for the time of year. Following the deluge on Sunday and Monday the underfoot conditions are still a bit too soft for buggies. #cowglengolfclub #golf #braiddesigns #glasgow #cowglengolfclubproshop


30/03/2021

A superb morning for a game. Mild, dry not much if any wind and all greens in play. #cowglengolfclub #golf #braiddesign #cowglengolfclubproshop


29/03/2021

Probably not surprisingly the course is closed. At the moment it doesn't look like this status will change however if it does I will post. The good news is that the forecast looks better for tomorrow onwards. All the very best to all the clubs down south that open up once again today and hopefully the weather is significantly better than this. #cowglengolfclub #golf #englishgolf #scottishweather #braidgolfcourse #glasgow #cowglengolfclubproshop


9 winter greens in play today

28/03/2021

After inspection from the greenkeepers, there are 9 winter greens in play today. We also ask that members take care when playing due to the slippy conditions from the heavy rainfall last night.


Wet Start

28/03/2021

After a heavy night of rainfall the course is open. However, it is most likely that there will be a few winter greens on due to the heavy rainfall. The greenkeepers are still carrying out their inspection, I shall update once I hear from them.


27/03/2021

Another night of rain and a mixed bag forecast but the course is open. Wrap up warm though as there is a freezing cold wind.


26/03/2021

Not a very pleasant start to the day. All greens in play but only single seat ride on buggies permitted today. #cowglengolfclub #golf #braiddesign #glasgow #cowglengolfclubproshop

A chilly overcast start to the day but still decent enough for a game of golf.

Getting the buggies back in action is always a positive step. #cowglengolfclub #clubcar #golf #braiddesigns #golfcart #scotland #cowglengolfclubproshop

Always lovely to see the daffodils come into bloom around the course. Another very cold and strong wind blowing so wrap up. #cowglengolfclub #golf #daffodils #braidgolfcourse #scotland #cowglengolfclubproshop

A little on the chilly side again but conditions are still excellent for a game especially with the tees starting to go back to closer to full length. #cowglengolfclub #golf #braiddesign #scotland #cowglengolfclubproshop
