Club Championship Weekend

A fantastic weekend of championship golf ⛳️ thanks to all involved. The green staff for getting the course in great condition, all the players involved in all the qualifying rounds. Not sure anyone would have imagined a few months ago that we’d be playing competitive golf again by now, let alone have such top quality golfers competing for 3 championships this weekend.

The men played their semi finals this morning with Andrew Farmer beating Paul Jones and Matt Clark defeating Lee Phillips to set up a final between our joint course record holders.

Long time Kilmacolm member Roddy Hammond took on the new boy Les Pirie in the inaugural Seniors Championship. With some great play from both men it was Les who was victorious in the end.

The Ladies final was a family affair with the Briggs sisters doing battle. Reigning champion Megan Briggs taking on Curtis Cup player Eilidh Briggs. This was a real tussle of a match with Megan sinking a great birdie putt on 16 to retain the Championship for the 17th year in a row!!

The Men’s final saw Andy trying to be the first Club Captain to be Club Champion but Matt Clark shattered his dream by outplaying his opponent and lifting the cup for a 3rd time.

Well done to all the competitors, there can’t be many clubs that can boast four plus handicappers in their Men’s and Ladies Championship Finals.

Clubhouse Re-Opens

We are delighted that from Wednesday 15th July, our Club will offer Indoor Hospitality subject to maintaining physical distancing and appropriate hygiene routines. With this relaxation to the Covid-19 restrictions, over the next two weeks Members will able to enjoy refreshments within the Main Lounge during daytime hours, from 11.30am to 5pm. And thereafter, from 27th July, 11.30am to 8pm. A bar snack service will be available; initially pre-prepared filled sandwiches, and towards the end of the month a menu extended to include hot snacks. A further extension to these hours, refreshments and catering options will be reviewed based on feedback and demand.

To adhere to the social distancing guidelines, the one-way system through the Clubhouse will be re-emphasised: in through the Main Entrance, through the Pro-shop and then out through the Spike Bar; or, in through the Main Entrance, into the Main Lounge via the link corridor and then out via the Spike Bar. The Family Room will be closed and the Spike Bar is only to be used for egress.

We will be tidying the Dining Room in the next few days to allow the Juniors their own space during the summer holidays. As things settle down in the Autumn and further Covid-19 relaxations are approved we can review a longer-term solution for the best use of the available spaces within the Clubhouse.

Bar staff will be wearing protective equipment and members are encouraged to do the same where appropriate.

Access to rest-rooms is available and users should satisfy themselves of the necessary social distancing. Whilst the facilities are cleaned daily, we ask individuals to take appropriate measures for cleanliness and sanitising, and alert the staff should there be anything of concern.

For obligatory tracing and tracking purposes, all Members who are not golfing but are using the Clubhouse facilities must register at the Main Bar. Similarly, all Guests must be registered at the Main Bar.

We look forward to this next step towards normality. As always, we appreciate your continued support and positive feedback, but also any opportunities for further improvement.

We realise that not everyone has the time to play throughout the day and may be constrained by work or family commitments. The K-Light membership has been created especially for you.

Are you:

  • Time constrained, and feel you can’t justify a full membership?
  • New to golf or looking to move up from Intro to Golf or the K10 memberships?
  • A members at another club who would like evening golf, or range and studio access?
  • A partner of a current member, who would like to try golf more seriously but feel they can’t justify a full membership?
  • A parent who can’t justify the time necessary to play golf as much as you would like, but would still like to get out in the late afternoon or early evening for a round of golf, or few holes now and again?

If the answer to any of the above is yes, the the K-Light is the perfect membership for you at nearly £400 cheaper than the full membership.
