Annual Dinner Dance & Prize Giving Presentation

The Annual Dinner Dance & Prize Giving Presentation evening was held on Saturday 28th October in the La Rustica Restaurant, Drimsynie House Hotel. After an excellent dinner, everyone adjourned to the Castle Suite for the presentation of prizes. At the Presentation of Prizes, the Captain, on behalf of the members, presented a crystal bowl to Allan Campbell, Director of Argyll Holidays in recognition of achieving their 50th anniversary in business and the continued support to the Golf Club.  After the presentations, everyone returned to La Rustica Restaurant for the live entertainment which was provided by Grand Central.  All the members and guests thoroughly enjoyed the evening which was a great success.  Many thanks to Claire Millar, Zak Gillan, Joe Tatarowicz and all the staff at Argyll Holidays.

Annual Weekend Trip – November 3rd to 5th

This is the third year that the members and their guests have booked into the Gailes Hotel for their annual weekend trip and played some of the great golf courses in Ayrshire.  Last year members played Glasgow Gailes, Dundonald and Barassie Links.  This year twenty members and their guests played Wester Gailes on the Friday followed by Dundonald on both the Saturday and Sunday.  There were prizes for the winners and even some for the losers!  Everyone voted the weekend a success and are eagerly looking ahead to next year’s trip.  Many thanks to Jimmy Gilmour who organised the trip.

Bonus Ball Winners :  Derek Gibson, Karen Reynolds, Club, Scott Jenkins, Martin Revie, Jimmy Gilmour


We have welcomed many new members throughout the season; however we are always on the lookout for more! A warm welcome is extended to anyone that would like to come along and join in, please feel free to contact myself on 07900992628 or email me at or contact any other committee members. Membership Application forms are also available locally from Alan Howden at the Costcutter Shop and from Stephen Moses at The Goil Inn. We will be only too happy to let you have all the information that you require.  Our annual subscription is £40 and there is no joining fee.    Although the season has now come to an end, there are still “bounce” games every Saturday morning, weather permitting, when members meet at 11.00am at Drimsynie House Hotel and playing partners are selected at random to tee off from 11.30am onwards.  If anyone is interested and not yet a member, this is a perfect opportunity to play and get to know everyone before the new competition season commences again in April 2018.
