Arran Golfers Association

Friday April 27, AGA Senior Bowl, round one. Machrie beat Lochranza, Whiting Bay beat Brodick, Lamlash beat Corrie. The course looked stunning and the greens were fast, a couple of wee bumps here and there, but, on the whole fabby, so a big thank you to Stuart, Paul, Jack, Lois and Glen, and Dougie for looking after the auld yins at the start, and thanks to Jock and Willie for patrolling the course keeping an eye on the matches and collating the results.

Fixtures: Friday May 4, AGA Senior Bowl, round two, start time 4.30pm. Shiskine v Machrie, Whiting Bay v Lamlash. Once again, if teams are running late, you must get in touch with the starters box, and if other teams are there and ready to go, then they can be put out first.

Point of note please, there has been some slow play out there, which causes frustration for others, try and keep the games moving along, so that the ones at the end don’t finish too late.
