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.

New Membership Offers

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.

Chasing the Elusive 59!

An absolutely outstanding display of golf in last week's Gents Mid Week Stroke Competition by our Club Captain, and current Club Champion, Andrew Farmer as he chased the elusive 59 to break the Kilmacolm Golf Club course record set by Matthew Clark over 6 years ago. 

After 17 holes he needed a birdie at the last to capture the pinnacle of a golfer's career, unfortunately this time he came up just short, but the standard of play and his composure over 18 holes was superb.

What an achievement well done, and congratulations - glad we have use of the Scottish Golf App to allow us to enter competitions.

Captains Newsletter 21st June 2020

Dear Members
We hope you have all enjoyed being back on the course over the past few weeks, everyone has adapted well with the new booking system and the new way of golf!

With the use of the Scottish Golf App we are lucky that we are able to run competitive golf, which some people have taken advantage of, recording amazing scores! Many clubs are not yet in this position so it is great that we can run competitions so soon after re-opening – read more about the new system here

Juniors
As both mens and ladies sections start their summer of competitions, we are delighted that the Juniors are following suit next weekend.

After 5 years of service, Lynda Bradley has decided to step down as our Junior Convenor. She has been an inspiration to so many of our youngsters and built up a thriving Junior Section. We are indebted to her for all the hours of hard work and enthusiasm that she has put in, it has been very much appreciated by everyone.

We are delighted that Roddy Hammond has kindly offered to take up the reins and is looking to get the juniors back into golf as the summer holidays approach. We are hoping to have a team to guide the juniors so that we can look at developing the younger ones who are new to the game, as well as those more established golfers to reach their potential. Anyone who feels they can give something back to the club to help develop our future members please get in touch.


Pro Shop & Range

Meanwhile Stuart and David are now both available for lessons, keep up to date with news from the Pro Shop by receiving their weekly newsletter, register here and follow them on their Facebook page Kilmacolm Professional Shop.

We are delighted that the Shop will be fully open next week on Monday 29th June, please take time to see all the new items on sale, and support our new Professional as he finally gets to be fully operational after a rather delayed start!!

The Range is now back open and it is great to see this fantastic facility being used to it’s full potential. Remember Range Membership is available for £35 giving an unlimited supply of balls! Sign up at the Pro Shop and book your bay via the App.


We are hoping that with the continuing lifting of restrictions demand for tee times will ease. Following last week’s government announcement please can we encourage everyone now to play in 3 (or 4) balls to allow more access to the course for all our members. As we receive new guidelines and changes occur we will endeavour to keep you up to date as quickly as possible.

In the meantime happy golfing
Andrew and Jackie
