A disappointing field of only 19 juniors played into todays Strokeplay Championship at Bishopbriggs. However all the juniors who did play all played well and enjoyed the golf course with winner Lachlan Reynolds, Glasgow Golf Club shooting a fine 67, with the Runner up Josh White Bishopbriggs scoring 69. Well done and thank you to all the boys that took part.

The 2018 Glasgow Golf Union Strokeplay Championship was won at the weekend by the top player in the County, Calum Fyfe. The event which was played over 36 holes at Glasgow Golf Club’s Killermont Course was well attended but young Mr Fyfe won with room to spare, his 9 under par total good enough for a 7 stroke win over Cawder team mates Graeme Cross and Craig Chalmers who tied for 2nd place on 2 under par. Killermont was, as always, in terrific condition with many of the players praising the speed and softness of the greens, despite the challenging drought. The top 16 available qualifiers will contest the Glasgow Matchplay Championship at Haggs Castle this week, with the final to be played on Sunday afternoon.

GGU commence 2018 Coaching for young Juniors. 13 boys and girls representing 5 of our Clubs attended Mearns Castle on Sunday 18th February for a 2 hour session with GGU Coach Alastair Forsyth. Some were as young as 8 and it was very encouraging to see the enthusiasm of all who attended. Alastair Forsyth “I was very impressed by the technique on display and I am confident many will go on to become first class golfers with many years enjoyment from golf”
Further sessions are planned for Spring, see website for upcoming details.
Thanks to Junior Conveners and Parents who attended.

Glasgow Golf Union are pleased to announce that Dougalston Golf Club in Milngavie Glasgow have completed their application, and have now joined the Union. That brings the number of course owning clubs within the Union to a total of 11. Dougalston Golf Club officially opened in July 2001 after undergoing a dramatic transformation. Set in the Dougalston Estate the scenery surrounding the golf club is something to admire. Improvements to drainage allow better play all year round. A warm and welcoming clubhouse offers a perfect time to enjoy a pre- or post-game drink. The course is set within 300 acres of mature woodland with tree-lined fairways and natural water hazards incorporated throughout. Although only seven miles from Glasgow the course is totally secluded with spectacular views across the Campsie Fells. Skillful development has preserved the mature woodland in which the natural wildlife thrives. Around the contours of the estate are some of the most testing and interesting holes to be seen anywhere in Britain.
