A Message From The Captain

There’s lots going on at the club at the moment and the course is in great condition. Stevie and his team are doing a great job and Jacqui and her team are meeting the bar and catering challenge with their customary gusto and good humour.

It’s also great to see Graeme establishing himself at the centre of everything golf at Kirky. From getting folks onto the tee in medal competitions, looking after our Junior Coaching programme alongside our Junior Convenor Billy Barr and providing golf tuition Graeme really has quickly become a key part of the team.

Having said all of that it does need saying a huge and, to some extent embarrassed, thanks to the members of the business council. Why embarrassed? Well, due to a lack of nominees and volunteers for key positions the Business Council is running light on members this season. In turn the various sub committees are not happening and a huge amount is being asked by a very few people.

This is our club. There is no large central team running things. Tom our Club Manager and Ken who looks after Admin - as well as an unending list of challenges -can only do so much.

If this note pricks anyone’s conscience please do speak to me, past Captain Hazel or indeed anyone mentioned above. It would be great to have more members directly involved. Your thoughts and efforts really can and will shape the future of our club.

So as we approach mid summer, the weather continues to be fair and pleasant, the course is in the best condition I have ever seen so get involved, let’s take our Club forward to the future.

Introducing Ready Golf

The term "Ready Golf" is a relatively new term now being referred to by the R&A and the USPGA in an effort to speed up play on the golf course. Although there are no hard and fast rules in place as yet, most of the guidelines are common sense and at Kirkintilloch Golf we are trying to adopt some of these in an effort to speed up play and make or hard-earned relaxation time fully enjoyable.  So, here are some typical examples of how to adopt "Ready Golf" that we would kindly like our members and visitors adopt:-


  • Hit your own shot when safe to do so if a player farther away faces a more challenging shot and is taking time to assess their options
  • Shorter hitters should play first from the tee or fairway if longer hitters have to wait as they may be more capable
  • Hit your tee shot if the person with the honour is delayed in being ready to play
  • Take your next a shot before helping someone to look for a lost ball
  • Don't wait on the green and putt out even if it means standing close to someone else’s line
  • Hit your shot if a playing partner who has just played from a greenside bunker is still farthest from the hole but is delayed due to raking the bunker
  • When a player’s ball has gone over the back of a green, any player closer to the hole but chipping from the front of the green should play while the other player is having to walk to their ball and assess their shot
  • Mark scores upon immediate arrival at the next tee, except the first player teeing off, they can mark their card immediately after teeing off
