A good day enjoyed by all who took part, particularly the team from MD Joinery. Well done Malky and co. A huge thank you to all our Sponsors, who give generously of their time and money – this all makes a difference to the running of the club and is, very much appreciated.
Ayrshire Fourball Championship
Graham Anderson & Graham Todd play their quarter final at home against Troon Wellbeck. All the best in this match guys.
Our 4-man team of Jim Anderson, Johnny Anderson, Malky Doull and Donny Campbell have had another home win against Ayr Seafield and now progress to the quarter finals of this competition. Their next match is West Kilbride away. Good luck to you all.
Game Three well under way now and the Joker jackpot is sitting at £100. This is an excellent fundraiser for the club and well worth a £1 for a go.
Congratulations to our latest £100 winner Mr Campbell Leslie. Still time to get in on the action and purchase a number for the remaining draws. Cost is now £16 to enter for the remaining months.
9 Hole Medals
They are a great way for an even more sociable game as these competitions are open to all categories playing together – men, women and juniors and are an ideal way to either gain your handicap or retain it.

Social Evening – Ryan RJ Wallace.
A full house enjoyed an excellent evening of entertainment from Ryan. He sang everything from classic opera to songs from the shows and a host of other popular music. Mix this in with a superb comedy act and the evening flew in. He came straight to Skelmorlie from his sellout shows in Blackpool and we were definitely lucky to get him. Let’s hope he will come back again – it was a great night!
Stocks are low – donations are urgently required. If you can help by donating a raffle prize please pass to a member of the social committee or leave behind the bar.
