New Catering at Kilmacolm Golf Club

We're delighted to have Neil Moodie joining us to provide an outsourced catering service to members.
Neil brings with him a distinctive catering van which will allow us to start providing a limited service to members in the near future. When you do see him in the car park, please drop by to introduce yourself and give him a warm Kilmacolm welcome. As soon as the restrictions permit and the membership is comfortable, Neil will move into the clubhouse and we will move towards a more normalised service.

Stroke Index Changes

As part of the new WHS, the R&A and USGA advise using the stroke indices (SI) provided, which is based off the information used to calculate the courses slope rating.

Following discussion and approval from both the Ladies committee and the Gents Handicap committee your Golf and Social committee has decided to adopt these for both sections to ensure that both the WHS handicap calculations and our own club competitions use the same Stroke Index.

The new yardages and stroke indices have been uploaded on to the SG App. Tee signage has been ordered and the current tee signs will be updated and repositioned by March. Score cards are in the process of being ordered and will be with us shortly. 

Match-play competitions having started under the old SI will continue with those through to completion. 

General Play Scores and qualifying competitions for handicap are now under the new SI. 

For anyone looking to do a general play score (GPS) without using the App, you can get a scorecard from the pro shop with adjusted SI on them. Please remember that anyone doing a GPS without the App must register in the pro shop before going out or your score will not count. GPS are permitted with the use of mats but you may not move your ball to the side.

Causing a stir in The Scotsman

Following the article in The Scotsman last week regarding the appointment of Megan Briggs as our Club Vice Captain, Martin Dempster has published a follow up article regarding high profile golfers taking up roles within Golf Clubs.
It's been good to be part of some lively debate.

Martin Dempster: "Why more Scottish golf clubs should appoint high-profile captains"

"It’s always pleasing to generate a debate on golfing matters and that was certainly the case with a news story last week about Megan Briggs, a former Scottish Women’s champion, having been lined up to become Kilmacolm’s club captain next year."
