What a difference 18 hours makes to the same piece of fairway on the 1st hole. Hopefully it will continue to improve and a big thanks to all members today for sticking to the roped areas which will greatly aid the recovery of the rain effected areas👍

As the season begins you may want to update your golfing wardrobe and your skills with a few lessons from the Pro.

Pop in to the Pro shop for some good deals!

As you can see from photos, 3rd fairway has been roped off. No trolleys beyond this point, please use bridge and head towards 4th tee with your trolleys and then approach the green. Play is still allowed from beyond roped area but strictly no trolleys. ⛳️👍

Closed ❌

We have decided to remain closed for one more day. Forecast looks more promising for the next few days and hopefully we can reopen tomorrow.

Thank you for your understanding on this matter .

Morning, course status :

Closed ❌

Due to more rain overnight and the current ground conditions we have decided to close the course for today. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause but we feel it is necessary in order to preserve course conditions for the season ahead. Clubhouse is OPEN as usual.

Course update!⛳️

Due to the heavy rain over the weekend and some showers today. Walk off areas at the sides of greens and also paths ends are now becoming badly churned up with trolley marks. If we have any more significant rain today then unfortunately we will be forced to close the course tomorrow morning. We never take this decision lightly, however if we want to preserve the condition of our course before the main playing season begins then we simply have no other option. If the course remains open tomorrow and you are wanting to play, could you please carry your bag if you are able.
Thank you for your understanding regarding this.

Big turnout for our Masters Sunday today and the weather is fine👍. Pin positions are tricky and greens double rolled so there will be stories a plenty tonight😜

An early contender on this Masters Sunday is Albi Scot. He finds the first fairway with his unique swing, playing off a high 5 handicap, if his team pull together they could be in the mix on the back nine!😜

Masters Sunday underway at Kirkhill GC. Greens double rolled so it’s going to be fast!

Course update!

Weather conditions are becoming worse and we wouldn’t recommend anyone to play the course today. Hopefully common sense will prevail.

Two of our young golfing ambassadors will be competing in final qualifying for the EuroPro tour this week from 4-6th April at Filfordheath Golf Club.

Craig Ross, already a winner on the 3rd tier tour when still an amateur at the 2014 Glenfarclas Open at Marshall, beating club compatriot Paul Shields into 2nd place.

Paul now plays out of the Paul Lawrie stable but all at Kirkhill wish them both the very best this week and for the season ahead.

Play well lads!🏌️⛳️🏆

This week she’s the first of Scottish Golfs main events with the Boys Scottish Open Championship at Montrose Golf Club.

Our own Lewis Irvine will be teeing it up on Wednesday and as ever all at Kirkhill wish him the very best of luck. As one of the top young amateur golfers in the country Lewis is one of the favourites for the championships so fingers crossed!🏌️⛳️🏆

Medal cancelled tomorrow due to the wee sister of the middle cousin of the Big Beast from the East. Sorry folks, but Sunday was nice 😩

Remember Masters Sunday this week, 4 player scramble, plenty of prizes, just register in the shop and have fun ahead of what promises to be a Masters to remember.
