Brandon Qualifier 11th June 2017
A blustery day with showers had little effect on Bruce and Kenny, who took first and second places respectively for the second time in 5 days. Bruce’s excellent scores see his handicap reduced by 1.6.
Brandon Qualifiers: 1st class, Bruce. 2nd class, Kenny.

As usual, a low turnout on the day after the Championship final. Good to see Ian topping the leaderboard and getting a well deserved handicap reduction.
ARRAN OPEN CHAMPIONSHIP
Club Championship Final 2017
Ewan McKinnon vs Matthew Keir
In a repeat of the 2014 final, Ewan just got the better of Matt in a match of high quality. Ewan drove out of bounds at the 6th, hit 3 off the tee to 8 feet and holed out for a par 4, but Matt’s excellent birdie won the hole. Ewan’s birdies at 2 of the most difficult holes, 8 & 10, increased his lead, which, despite Matt’s excellent play, proved decisive.
This was Ewan’s 10th CHAMPIONSHIP success and puts Stevie Bunyan’s record 12 wins firmly in his sights.
Brodick Golf Club Championship 2017
Semi-Final results mean a repeat of the 2014 final between Ewan and Matt K. Ewan had a fairly comfortable win over Gordon, but the two Matts had a great match which was played in a very sporting manner and finished on the 18th.
Final scheduled for Saturday 27th 4.00pm but there is a potential weather problem which might result in a time change.
Club Championship Draw 2017
Some very interesting ties in this seeded draw. Due to a few qualifiers being unable to participate in the matchplay rounds, Captain Lindsay gets the last place, giving him the questionable privilege of playing champion Ewan in round 1!
Congratulations to Matt on winning the prestigious McCafrae Trophy 2017
Round 3 CLUB CHAMPIONSHIP QUALIFYING
Sunday 21 May
With the HOPE CUP only 4 weeks away, great to see last year’s winning team, along with Ross, occupying the top 5 places. The early starters had some heavy rain, and although it was drier later, a strong wind blew throughout the day, making the scoring all the more impressive.
Round 2 CLUB CHAMPIONSHIP QUALIFYING
Thursday 18 May
Round 1 CLUB CHAMPIONSHIP QUALIFYING
Sunday 14 May 2017
Round 1 of the CLUB CHAMPIONSHIP QUALIFYING was played on a beautiful day with the strong breeze making scoring quite difficult. Unsurprisingly, champion Ewan leads the way, closely followed by fellow Hope Cup team member Matt.
Brandon Qualifier 30th April 2017
Lovely day for golf with plenty of sunshine and a strong breeze. Jimmy finding a bit of form again and Ewan clearly gearing up for his CLUB CHAMPIONSHIP defence. Ali’s wedding anniversary celebrations on Saturday night obviously did no harm to his golf!
23rd April 2017
On a pleasant but windy day the course proved difficult to play with only half the field returning completed cards. No such problems for Gordon, who is coming into form at the right time with a lot of important events scheduled for the next 2 months.
Congratulations to Jimmy on a great win. He was saying that he didn’t like playing in the rain any more..could’ve fooled me as it was a very wet day on the course! Well done to all who played.
