Main Summer Competition Draws:
We will not have access to Golfbox software in 2020. We will, in the short term, be reverting to using Club Systems CLUBV1 software. This, however, will not allow us to show entries as and when received or display real-time scoring during competitions. We apologise for this backward step in regards our service to members, but we are hopeful that eventually (probably in 2021) that we will have access to new Scottish Golf Software which will restore our previous capabilities, as well as provide us with additional functionality.
Access relevant competition tab below to access current draws.
Be aware however that receipt of entry does not confirm a tee time as a ballot may be required if more than 141 entries received at the closing date. You can use this functionality to check that your entry has been received by Competition Secretary.
In the event that the maximum number of entries (currently 141 for all except Matchplay event) is exceed at closing date then a ballot based on handicap will apply. To view ballot rules and process click here to open.

Play over the 2 days was challenging, with the weather breaking from the recent good spell. On Thursday, we were faced with high winds throughout the day and the later players had to contend with heavy rain, thunder and lightning. Play had to be suspend for 30 mins in the afternoon for player safety. On Friday the wind had changed direction slightly and intensified. The early starts had the best of the day getting around in the dry, before the heavens opened and heavy rain persisted for the afternoon. Scoring was excellent in view of the conditions.
CSS for round 1 was 72, and for Round 2 74. (Par and SSS for Powfoot is 71).
