Both of our teams were in action on Sunday 29th. The Youth's match at West Gailes v Ayrshire ended in a victory for the Ayrshire boys by the slim margin of 4.5-3.5, with the match going down to the very last green where we just missed a putt for a draw ! In the Senior match at Cathkin Braes, we lost 5-3 to a very strong Ayrshire team, who only had one of their top players missing. The next match for the A team is at Pollok on 6th Oct where they play Dumbartonshire.

The governing bodies of amateur golf in Scotland, England, Ireland and Wales are delighted to announce that they have signed the licence for the new World Handicap System (WHS) which will come into operation on November 2, 2020.

As members of the Council of National Golf Unions (CONGU), Scottish Golf, England Golf, the Golfing Union of Ireland, the Irish Ladies Golfing Union and Wales Golf have been driving forces in planning for the new system in alliance with The R&A and USGA. The current Golf Handicapping System maintained by CONGU will be replaced by WHS which will unify the six different structures currently in operation throughout the world of golf.

Congratulations to the Ayrshire Junior team who won the West of Scotland Boys League in their last match against Stirlingshire on Sunday. The match, which was played at Falkirk, ended with a 4.5-3.5 win for Ayrshire securing them the title. The Glasgow Boys team also ended their campaign, but unfortuately with a 6-2 defeat at the hands of Dumbartonshire. Team Manager Gordon Jamison who was only able to field a team of 3 boys for the match, however singled out Josh Millan for praise, having a win on his debute game.

Brendan McKenna is the new Glasgow Open Amateur Champion after a sudden death playoff at Pollok Golf Club yesterday. The competition had to be restricted to 18 holes due to the heavy rain and adverse conditions. After the first round both Brendan and Willie McMillan of Bonnyton had tied with fine scratch scores of 66, but Brendan went on to win at the 1st extra hole with a birdie. Congratulations to Brendan and to all the players who braved the persistent rain, and thanks to Pollok Golf Club for presenting an excellent course despite the very poor weather.
