Now that I have recovered from a serious bout of man flu, I'd firstly like to apologies for cancelling the members meeting on the 26th February at such short notice and secondly to remind you it has been rescheduled for Wednesday 12th March at 6pm.


It has came to our attention a number of members don't have up to date contact details, next time you're in, please take 2 minutes to double check. This will help us to keep you up to date with some goings-on around the club.

We are still looking for some names so that we can enter into inter club competitions this year. Please let me know no later than 17th March if you are looking to take part.


At the end of this week we'll be switching over from our old handicap software to the new Club V1 system. Club V1 is a far more interactive system and is also compatible with the 'How Did I Do' website.
We will keep you posted with updates on this, on the build up to opening day.


Sign up sheets for the opening day scramble aswell as the summer knockout competitions will up in the changing rooms from the 10th. Please be aware places for the opening day are limited so it's first come first served.


Over the next week or so you'll notice in the shop that we're taking delivery of stock for 2014. We are continuing our relationship with Mizuno and will now be stocking a selection of their clubs; they will also be supporting a number of events throughout the season so keep a look out for some fantastic prizes that could be won. If you are looking at buying something new to add to you golfing collection that we don't have in the
shop be sure to ask as we might be able to get it cheaper than you'd pay elsewhere.


We're having a membership drive at the club just now, in which we have had a number of new members over January and February and we ask that you help us spread the word about the course and recommend it to your friends. As a reward for doing so, all new members that you recommend will receive one month free and as a bonus so will you!

Golf News

Rory's at it again Rory McIlroy let slip a two-shot lead and lost in a play-off at the Honda Classic in Florida while world number one Tiger Woods withdrew injured.


Northern Ireland's McIlroy, who carded a four-over-par 74, missed a 12-foot eagle putt at the last to win outright.


American Russell Henley won a play-off, which also featured compatriot Ryan Palmer and Scotland's Russell Knox, with a birdie at the first extra hole.



Woods was forced to withdraw on the 13th hole because of back pain.The American hit a five-under-par 65 on Saturday to move into contention but was five over in his final round when he quit.His withdrawal comes six weeks before the Masters at Augusta - the first major of 2014 - which takes place from 10-13 April.

"It's my lower back with spasms," said Woods, 38. "It started while I was warming up."

McIlroy admitted he was fortunate to have reached the play-off after dropping six shots in 11 holes from the seventh, including a double-bogey six on the par-four 16th where he hit his ball out of a bunker and into water.

He followed that with another bogey on the 17th, which left him needing a birdie on the last to get into the play-off at eight under.
 

The 24-year-old gave himself a chance of victory though with a stunning second shot on the par-five hole that finished 12 feet from the hole but he was unable to hole the eagle putt that would have won him the title.


"I didn't play well enough to deserve to win," McIlroy told the PGA tour website.

"It's very disappointing. It was a perfect opportunity to win. No one was really coming at me.

"There's a few positives to take, but obviously it's going to be hard to get over because I had a great chance to win my first tournament of the season and I didn't."

Priorities, football or golf?

Paul Lawrie to miss Morocco event to watch Aberdeen's Cup final.

Paul Lawrie has confirmed that he will miss next month's Trophee Hassan II so he can watch Aberdeen
play in the Scottish League Cup final on 16 March.

The 45-year-old had previously said it was a dilemma as he was still chasing points needed to
qualify forEurope's Ryder Cup team.

But the 1999 Open champion confirmed his intentions in a question and answer session on social media site Twitter.

"Yes, going to the final," said the Aberdonian about theMorocco event.


Aberdeenface Inverness Caledonian Thistle at Celtic Park - the Dons' first major final for 14 years.

The Trophee Hassan II is being held at Golf du Palais Royal from 13-16 March.


Lawrie helped the Europeans retain the Ryder Cup at Medinah in 2012 but lies 68th in the European
Tour's current points table ahead of the 2014 event at Gleneagles.
 

Scotland's best hope of having a home player qualify for Paul McGinlay's team is Stephen Gallacher, who lies in 14th place.

Green Keeper update

As we begin the month of March it has been reported by the met office that this winter has been the wettest on record for Scotland with 697mm of rain falling. As we move into spring the optimism for blue skies
remains strong. I hope you'll spare a thought for the green keepers who have been out on the course everyday fighting against the horrible conditions in an attempt to keep the course open. I'm sure you'll agree the job they have done on the greens is fantastic and the condition they are in for this time of the year is a credit to them. Their schedule of winter works is going to plan so far, albeit altered slightly to deal with some adverse weather and the hope is with some improvements in the weather they'll have the course in a fantastic condition for the opening day on 12th April.
