Glasgow Accies Golf Day

Posted on Wednesday 20th May 2009 by Fraser Murray

The inaugural Glasgow Accies Golf Day took place on Sunday 17th May.  Eventually, after number of cars took a quick tour of a Dumbarton housing estate, our band of 14 "golfers" assembled at the picturesque Vale of Leven Golf Club (external link).

Three groups that could call themselves golfers, including Alex, Nigel, John McNaught and a number of guests, were followed round by two groups that clearly couldn't (Baz, Fraser, Stuart, Abhay, Rishi and Randy). It should be pointed out that it was one of the early group that managed to go down the 18th when they should have been playing the second.

Finishing just in time to beat the torrential downpour, Stuart, following on from his 1XI debut the previous day, upset the golfers to become our first champion.

Randy picked up the nearest-the-pin prize on the par-3 12th, hitting his shot to eleven-and-a-half of Rishi's feet, pipping Stewart Parker's 12-and-a-half of Rishi's feet.  Nige narrowly missed out on the longest drive as he finished just off the fairway.  Baz should have picked up the prize for holing the longest putt to make double-bogey and still not score any points, or for losing the largest number of balls, whilst Abhay went round the course using only 4 clubs.

Your author had an eventful round, sclaffing 4 yards off the first tee to much hilarity and dropping his clubs in a puddle on the second.  Having been forced to mention those two incidents, he feels obliged to point out that he scored the only birdie of the day, with a 3 at the par 4 15th.

Overall Standings (Stableford Points)

1st Stuart Murray 35
2nd = Douglas Stirling and Andrew McCallum 32
4th = Alex Dowers, Andy Jones and Stewart Parker 28

Other Prizes

Best Gross Score: Stewart Parker, 88
Best Net Score: Stuart Murray, 69 (97-28)
Nearest the Pin: Richard Andrew
Longest Drive: Stewart Parker
Highest Score: Rishi Sood

Thanks to Alex Dowers for organising the event, everyone who took part, and Vale of Leven Golf Club for providing the excellent facilities.

Yet another blank Friday for the juniors

Posted on Thursday 14th May 2009 by Colin Dawson

Thursday lunchtime - Renfrew called to advise that they could not raise teams for U15's or U11's for tomorrow night's matches!!!  Neither age group has yet taken the field with three weeks of the season gone.  It seems that it is not just the weather that now conspires against our youngsters.

Whilst being annoyed at the situation and technically being able to claim the points that is not in the lads' interests so attempts will be made to rearrange all cancelled matches for later in the season.

Second consecutive junior washout

Posted on Friday 8th May 2009 by Colin Dawson

For the second consecutive week both the U15 and U11 matches against Greenock have been washed out by the overnight rains - maybe next week?
