gameface17Glasgow falter in the Quarter Finals of the Mens Scottish Area Championships.
Losing narrowly out 3 -2 to the North East Area earlier today. Who then went on to win their semi final tie v Lanarkshire and then win Sunday's Final v Lothian. However the main topic of conversation in the clubhouse was Calum Fyfe's remarkable -18 under par for 36 holes on Friday over both courses at Newmachar GC with a new course record over the Hawkshill and equalling the Swalefield course record of 62. We have asked Scottish Golf to check their archives to establish if his 36 hole score has ever been bettered. Watch this space for their reply.

The Area Youths Championship took place at Ralston on Sunday 10th September. The course was well presented and withstood the rain well during the morning round. During the afternoon the rain became heavier and various greens flooded. With no prospect of the rain easing for several hours the second round had to be abandoned before any of the players had completed their round. The results of the first round determined the results of the competition. A measure of the trying nature of the conditions can be seen from the CSS being reduction only and even wth a CSS of 73 no player managed to score below his handicap. The individual winner was Stuart Cameron of Elderslie with a 73. The runner up on 74 was the 2015 winner was Dominic Dougan of Drumpellier. Full scores may be viewed here
The winning team was Renfrewshire A - Sean Burns, Stuart Cameron and Louis Oliver with a total of 148 for their two best scores out of three. The runners up were Lanarkshire A - Fraser Kane, Dominic Dougan and Graeme Greer with a score of 150.
