Double Success for Glen Ladies

Nancy Thorne and Ann Nimmo represented the Glen at the SGU Regional Medal Finals after qualifying last season as overall winners of the SGU silver and bronze medals played over the season.

They played on Friday 3rd May at Haddington and both came third in their respective divisions.  They will now go through to the Grand Final to be played on the Eden Course at St Andrews in June.  A fantastic double. 

Congratulations to Nancy and Ann and good luck for the final.

5 Year Fixed Wire Testing

We will be having electrical testing carried out on 8th and 9th May 2019, both in the clubhouse and the shop. This will cause some disruption to all services.

The kitchen will close at 3pm on 8th.

Credit card and till functions  may also be disrupted.

Please bear with us during this essential maintenance. 

Monthly Midweek Medal

The Monthly Midweek Medal is open to all members and the date is on both the Ladies and Gents Freetime calendar to serve as a  reminder. It is the second Tuesday of every month.

Booking is made through the starter.

Please indicate to the Starter that you are playing in the competition and ensure that your card is clearly marked with the name of the competition (Monthly Midweek Medal), date, current handicap and signed before returning.

The next competition is on 14th May and not 7th May as previously indicated on Freetime.

Essential Hollow Coring Underway

On Monday the 25 March the Spring hollow coring will commence. This essential maintenance will help the greens drain more freely and reduce organic matter thus creating firmer, disease free surfaces for the remainder of the season. The process involves creating core holes of 8mm in diameter and 25mm in depth. The content or cores are then lifted, the greens seeded and topdressed. The work usually takes one week start to finish, weather permitting. Ideally, warmer temperatures and just a little moisture helps to speed recovery. This work is best undertaken in the Spring in order to present good quality greens during the rest of the season. Sorry for the inconvenience, but it is in a good cause.
