The GGU Seniors Championship was held at Gailes Links on Wednesday 5th May 2021. Established in 1892, Gailes Links is part of the prestigious Glasgow Golf Club. The weather on the day was favourable in comparison to earlier in the week with some fine sunny spells, and most importantly no rain ! A total of 136 players entered the competition, providing a great field for our opening competition of the season.

The course was in super condition considering the very cold weather that has been experienced in the West of Scotland recently, and a vote of thanks goes to Robert Dickson and the greenkeeping staff at Gailes for the course setup. The GGU would also like to thank the committee of Glasgow Golf Club for hosting the competition, it's a great start to our competition season to have such a renowned golf course available for this event. 

The winners were as follows:

Scratch Champion  - Stephen Machin (73 Gross) Cowglen Golf Club
Handicap Champion - Robert Ewing (68 Nett) Sandyhills Golf Club

Congratulations to Stephen and Robert who are our Senior Champions for 2021, and to all our scratch and handicap age group winners.
