A terrific turnout of 38 Junior Members representing 9 of our 11 Course Owning Clubs attended the above fun event at Bishopbriggs Golf Club, Academy Course, on Sunday 12th August.
An even split of 19 Under 12’s and 19 under 15’s participated in the usual skill challenges demonstrated by our GGU Coach Alastair Forsyth.
Despite some rain, all the boys and girls who attended thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to practice their putting and chipping skills and learn the importance of developing a good short game.
Prizes were awarded to 2 participants in each category.
Thanks to all Parents and Junior Conveners for arrangements and transport to and from the venue. Also thanks to Gordon Jamison our Junior Team Manager and Andrew Smith for their assistance on the day.

A thrilling end in today's 36 hole stroke-play Glasgow Open Amateur Championship at Pollok GC. In a full field of 62 players from various parts of the country the competition ended in a 3 way tie on an 36 hole total of 138. The players tied were: 

William MacMillan of Bonnyton GC

George Duncan won the sudden death 3 way play off with a birdie at the 3rd extra hole. Well done George in winning this famous old trophy pictured in its permanent home of Pollok Golf Club, and his name will be to added a long list of famous Scottish amateur golfers. Some great golf played throughout to day and well done to all that played and supported this popular competition. Thank you to Pollok Golf Club members for giving up their Saturday medal and all the staff for their service and hospitality, all adding up to another very successful Glasgow Golf Union competition.

Great matches in yesterday's Junior Matchplay Championships over Bishopbriggs.  In the semi-finals, Louis Fleming Haggs Castle lost at the 20th hole to Chris McMillan Bishopbriggs and Logan Glately Sandyhills narrowly lost 2/1 to Josh White Bishopbriggs. In the final, was all square at the 9th with Josh moving up a gear to go on to win 3/2.  Well done to Josh and all the juniors that took part. While numbers are still a challenge the quality of the younger golfer in Glasgow remains at a high level. Runner up Chris McMillan is pictured above with the proud Winner Josh White.
