Junior + Membership


Great meeting at the club this morning with Scottish Golf's Chief Executive Andrew McKinlay re' our Junior + membership. Many thanks for taking the time Andrew and the tweet.

Some greens on. No Buggies


Michael is hopeful that he'll be able to get up to half the greens on today howeve they are still carrying out their inspection. I will update when I hear anything further. There will be no buggies permitted and as always at this time of year care must be taken on slopes or uneven surfaces.

Winter Rules Now In Play


I'm still waiting to hear from Michael but given the conditions currently and through the night I would expect that temporary greens will be in play and no buggies will be allowed.For those who brave the conditions, winter rules come into effect today. Mats to be played from all areas of the fairway or take the ball at least 2 club lengths into the semi rough.Winter/hedge hog wheels to be used on trollies but if possible please carry.

All winter greens


It's another cold start to the day. Due to the frost overnight, all winter greens will be in play today.

Temporary greens in play


Probably not surprising that temporary greens are play at the moment. This will hopefully change as the frost clears and I will update when or if it does. I would expect that buggies won't be permitted either until the frost clears.

Calm start


It's a calm start to the day, with a little rain. I'm still awaiting word from the greenkeepers regarding greens, but I think most if not all greens will be on today.

Greens on, Buggies allowed.


All greens are on and buggies permiited today.

Some Temporary greens and still no buggies


No wind and reasonably mild so good conditions for this time of year however underfoot is still extremely wet so there will be temporary surfaces in play. Michael reckons about half and half but he hopes to get as many on as he can.

Greens on, no buggy's


Michael is confident that most if not all greens will be on however there will be no buggy's permitted and as always due to underfoot conditions at this time year care must be taken especially on slopes or uneven ground.

All full greens in play


After inspection from the greenkeepers, all normal greens are on today.

A cold but nice start to the day


The course is open today and conditions are good. I am still waiting to hear from the greenkeepers regarding the greens. Once I am informed, I will make sure to post it.

Temporary Greens


6 Temporary Greens in play. 5, 7, 10, 12, 14 & 15. This will be the status for the rest of the day

Great conditions for time of year.


It's very mild and there is not a breath of wind so conditions are excellent for this time of year. I have still to hear from the greens staff regarding the status of the greens following the rain last night. As soon as I hear I will post.

Greens and Buggy's on.


Not very nice this morning but it looks like all the greens are in play and buggy's permitted but as always these must be kept on the fairways and paths and away from greens and rough.

Happy Halloween


Freezing conditions to start the day meaning all temp greens are in play. Once the frost lifts greens will go on as and when they can.

No fog or frost.


No fog or frost and it looks like most if not all greens will be in play and buggy's permitted. If I hear anything different from Michael I will post.

Stableford delayed


The start of the Stableford will be delayed until the frost lifts and the greens are back in play. I will post an update as soon as I hear from Michael.



Temporary greens in play until frost lifts and inspection is carried out. I will post with update as soon as I hear the status.
Buggy's permitted from 9am.

Sunday Stableford


Another nice but cold start for the Sunday stableford today. Hopefully, it will warm up a little as the day goes on and make conditions a bit easier for all those playing.



It's dry and not too cold in that there is any frost so everything should be okay for today's Stableford. If I hear any different from the greens staff (who are out with the head lights on just now!) I'll post.

Grens & Buggy's on.


There is a very slight frost however all greens are in play and the buggy's will be on

Quiet Day


More rain over night but the course appears to be handling it well. Buggies are on but must be kept to the fairways.

Quiet day at the club.


Another mild start to the day so confident that all greens will be in play (unless there is work being carried out on them) and buggy's permitted. If this status changes following Michael's inspection I will post.



Given how mild it is and that is dry I am hopefull that all greens will be in play and the Stableford will be on with buggy's permitted. If/when I hear any different I will post.

Most greens is play and buggy's from 9am.


1st , 17th, 18th & Putting Green are being top dressed and vertidrained/brushed today therefore may be on temporary surfaces during this work however Michael is confident that all other greens should be in play and buggy's permitted from 9am.



Cold one this morning and with the frost I suspect that temporary greens will be in play. I've still to hear from Michael for the exact status and will post if any different or when there are any changes. Also still to hear whether buggy's will be permiited

Sunday Stableford


Another cold start today for the Sunday stableford. Hopefully, the sun will come out later and it will warm up.



Despite the rain all greens are in play and the Stableford is on. There will be no buggies permitted due to the underfoot conditions and as always care should be taken on any uneven ground.



A damp start to the day after more rain overnight but the course is still looking in pretty good shape.

Light Frost


A light frost to start the day as temperatures drop, most if not all greens should be on but no buggies.

Another wet start


Another cold and wet start to the day, with the tee sheet very quiet all day. Buggies won't be on today due to the wet conditions underfoot.



A pretty decent start to the day with no overnight rain for a change. The Stroke is on but conditions will still be pretty wet underfoot. No buggies

Cold Start


The course is open although there has been more rain over night. Its getting colder now too so time to layer up. No buggies.
