Following opening day the club activities are going ahead at full speed. Our junior coaches are now active in both the local schools and on the course on Saturdays. The coaching is now aided by the purchase of 5 new sets of junior clubs which were funded by a generous grant from the Charity Shop in Dalry, The club is extremely grateful for this help with our junior programme.

During the month the ladies have held their first open of the season. This was won by a couple from Dumfries & Galloway Golf Club. The ladies April medal was won by Anne McQueen with a blistering net 72.

On the 15th of the month we held our annaul memorial to our past president, Chris Thomas. The members enjoyed a fun day Texas Scramble and the winning team was Erica Porteous, David Nielsen, Nevile White & Ian McCulloch.

The Gents competitions are now in full swing and Alex Long has been dominant winning both the McRobert Thistle and the April medal. Today was the Tommy Sports Greensomes and this was won with a terrific score of net 64 by Brian Porteous & Alexander Harvie.

Gents are reminded that the 30th of April is the closing day for entry into the knockout competitions. If you wish to enter and cannot get to the clubhouse let me know and I will add your name to the entry sheets.

Members are also reminded that next Saturday 28th we will play the club’s first 9 hole pairs competition when the winners will have the chance to  play at Carnoustie the Saturday before the Open. Even if you don’t have a partner come along and we will find one for you,
