Well, we are very proud to say we have a Challenge Tour player at our club with the news that Craig Ross has finished tied 63rd after 6 rounds at final qualifying in Spain securing his playing rights for 2019.

A magnificent first year in the professional ranks has seen Craig record his first win on the EuroPro tour as a pro, having won previously as an amateur , and then finishing as Rookie of the Year at the tour finals in Spain.

After narrowly missing out on automatic entry to 2nd stage qualifying, Craig had to play in Germany, where he made the mark with ease, then did the same at 2nd Stage in Spain before the marathon of 6 highly pressured rounds over the last week again in Spain.

During the qualifying competitions, in all Craig has played 14 rounds, scoring 31 under par just to get his card, so I think it’s fair to say we hope he enjoys a break before hitting the range and moving forward in 2019.

We are all very proud of Craig, and are delighted he continues to be associated with Kirkhill Golf Club, well done and enjoy your success 👍⛳️🏆🍺

EuropeanTour update - Round 4 nearly complete and delighted to say Craig has made the 72 hole cut very comfortably on -8, meaning he has now secured membership of the Challenge Tour for 2019, and also a lower full tour category, however with 2 rounds to go the target is now to finish in, or as near to the top 25 as possible to boost his category for next year. The higher he finishes the better the events he can enter, so 🤞and everyone at Kirkhill is 🙏 for you😜⛳️

Well folks as the sun sets over the 17th today we say farewell to another summer golfing season as tomorrow our course returns to the winter layout, meaning fairways off, winter tees in and when necessary winter greens on.

Hopefully you all had a great year, and although it started wet, having a real summer more than made up for it. I’m sure you’ll agree the course was outstanding again so as ever it’s a massive thanks to our course manager, Scott McKittrick and his team, and along with those members who gave their own time to help out we were again well ahead of the vast majority of course in the central belt for condition. Don’t take our word for it though, as we had nothing but praise for the course from the Gents Lanarkshire County competitors, and along with the many visitors who played over the season it shows we are getting it right where it matters.

Our winter program is already underway, with changes to green side and fairway bunkers, improvements to some greens and paths, but as ever you will be updated by Scott in his weekly reports. We believe, when complete all the work will further enhance the course for next year and beyond.

So, enjoy your winter golf and watch out for announcements about club events as we have some great events planned to help pass the time till the sun come out again in Spring😜

Bunker work has started at the 16th today.

Agreed action from greens committee was to remove some of the original grass face to allow balls to roll further into the bunker. As you can see from the photos, this has made a difference. Only issue I see is when it rains the sand could wash off the face causing more maintenance and sand contamination. Time will tell. Feedback would be appreciated 👍
