With the season now in full swing the course is a busy place with both members and visitors making use of the good playing conditions.

On Saturday the ladies held their Glenkens Salver Open Greensomes. With 34 couples playing on the day all the hard work organising the competition and making the clubhouse welcoming was more than worth it. The second & third pairings both came from the Kirkcudbright club, however the club’s own Sandra Lancaster playing with Christine McIntosh of Wigtownshire County were the winners with 66.2. This was Sandra’s first ever win in an open competition. Thanks to everyone who worked so hard to make the day such a success.

On Sunday the club held the annual Celt’s Challenge in memory of our former President and supporter of the club, Chris Thomas. With 24 members and friends playing and our President and wife of Chris present to play and present the prizes the day was a huge success. The winners were Derek Shipley, Stuart Rhodes, Ian Brown & Sandra Lancaster, who was having an amazing weekend, with 57.6.
