GGU commence 2018 Coaching for young Juniors. 13 boys and girls representing 5 of our Clubs attended Mearns Castle on Sunday 18th February for a 2 hour session with GGU Coach Alastair Forsyth. Some were as young as 8 and it was very encouraging to see the enthusiasm of all who attended. Alastair Forsyth “I was very impressed by the technique on display and I am confident many will go on to become first class golfers with many years enjoyment from golf”
Further sessions are planned for Spring, see website for upcoming details.
Thanks to Junior Conveners and Parents who attended.

Glasgow Golf Union are pleased to announce that Dougalston Golf Club in Milngavie Glasgow have completed their application, and have now joined the Union. That brings the number of course owning clubs within the Union to a total of 11. Dougalston Golf Club officially opened in July 2001 after undergoing a dramatic transformation. Set in the Dougalston Estate the scenery surrounding the golf club is something to admire. Improvements to drainage allow better play all year round. A warm and welcoming clubhouse offers a perfect time to enjoy a pre- or post-game drink. The course is set within 300 acres of mature woodland with tree-lined fairways and natural water hazards incorporated throughout. Although only seven miles from Glasgow the course is totally secluded with spectacular views across the Campsie Fells. Skillful development has preserved the mature woodland in which the natural wildlife thrives. Around the contours of the estate are some of the most testing and interesting holes to be seen anywhere in Britain.

JKCC2107aJonathan King wins today's Final -

Jonathan King Glasgow GC beats Steven Manning Pollok GC to win the 2017 Glasgow Champion of Championship 4 & 3 at Cawder GC earlier today.
Glasgow's 10 Club Champions play KO match play over the summer months with a September Final each Year.
A very good match played in the best of spirits with King taking an early lead at the 2nd hole with par golf then played until Manning found a bad lie in the bunker at the 9th. While he played a good recovery shot lost the hole to par. With birdies on the 10th and 12th holes saw King extend his lead and par golf from then the match finished at the 15th.

Thank to Cawder GC for hosting this final.
