As we all bathed in scorching weather during april the course took it badly and we where required to spend most of our time watering greens. In the end it has all been worth it and our greens are now coming to life. Thanks to everyone who worked hard during the month keeping the course in such good order. It is such a boon to have so amy willing members to help us.
Members will be excited by the news that we now have a practise net which is sited over by the tractor shed. This will allow you all to warm up properly before you go to the first tee. Thanks go to Sandy Harvie who provided the matertials and constructed the frame for us. Thanks also go to Castle Douglas Golf Club who donated some extra netting.
On the playing side the weather has helped and all scheduled competitions have been played. The ladies held there first open of the year in testing windy conditions. However our home club players Anne McCarthy & Janette Davdison. The April Medal was won by jackie Duguid with a fantastic net 70 and the R&A 9 Hole challenge was won by Gill Warnock with 21 points. The ladies now move their competitions to Wednesdays during the summer months.
During April we also held the annual Chris Thomas memorial Texas Scramble which was won by Marena McClymont, Derek Shipley & Ronnie Ritchie.
