  • Raising the Roof in St Andrews

    The type of person who can afford to splash out on a penthouse suite in the Old Course Hotel, St Andrews, is probably the type of person that would be enraged if water poured into his luxury apartment every time it rained. While hotel staff try to placate...
  • It's Raining Again

    It is not clear what crime midweek golfers have committed, but they are certainly being punished. Two weeks ago, they played through the wettest day of the year and, last week, they contested the Centenary Medal final on what turned out to be the second w...
  • Novices No More

    In the good old days, novice golfers would submit scorecards for three rounds of golf. The total number of strokes taken would be in excess of 300. They would then be given a handicap of around 28 on the understanding that, playing under the pressure of c...
  • Impressing New Golfers

    The huge influx of new golfers in Stornoway under the promotional membership scheme has prompted an innovative Texas Scramble event this weekend. The laudable aim is to introduce new and experienced golfers to one another and, particularly, to give the ne...
  • Taking on a Lost Cause

    New members are always welcome at Stornoway Golf Club. The membership promotion this year has resulted in a large number of new golfers at the Club; so many that it is often difficult to identify fellow golfers on the course. Last weekend, there appeared ...
  • Black at the Double

    In years to come, it will not be difficult for David Black to pinpoint the exact date of his successful defence of the Club Championship title at Stornoway Golf Club: the day will be forever remembered as Super Saturday, marking the unprecedented haul of ...
  • Black Day for Western Isles Open

    Another week of glorious golf has ended in Stornoway. The excellent standard set in almost every competition is testament to conditions that made the course both challenging and a pleasure to play. Even those struggling with their game could appreciate th...
  • Hebridean Golfing Festival

    There can be few more reassuring sights in the golfing world than John "Shillegan" Gillies in sole charge of the Western Isles Open scoreboard. Armed with a variety of coloured marker pens, Shillegan updated the scores of 100 competitors throughout the da...
  • All Set for Golf Week

    What a difference a few drops of water make. It may have been less than one centimetre of rain but it was sufficient to make ground conditions at Stornoway Golf Club more like a golf course and less like an airport runway. As a result, there were more und...
  • Firemen Leave Scorch Marks on Course

    The Ladies Club Champion is Jane Nicolson, although her margin of victory is the closest in recent years. Jane and Christine Macleod were trailing after the first round but a final round nett 66 gave Christine an impressive aggregate total of 136. Jane, c...
  • Happy Gilmour Makes a Winning Return

    The condition of some of the locker doors at Stornoway Golf Club suggests that tennis player David Nalbandian is not alone in kicking out in frustration when things go wrong. Nalbandian expressed his annoyance at dropping a service game in the AEGON Champ...
  • County Championship for Andy Macdonald

    The Western Isles County Championship is now firmly established in the golfing calendar. The two previous events were held at Stornoway and the Isle of Harris and both were blessed with beautiful weather. This year was no exception, with the course at Ask...
  • Sun Baked Golf a Tough Challenge

    Excuse Number 279 for playing atrocious golf in perfect conditions: attempting to use a Bowel Screening Test Kit four hours before teeing off. Every male over the age of 50 is now routinely sent a Test Kit and all the evidence points to the conclusion tha...
  • Crossing the Minch

    Stornoway golfers are a hardy breed. Over eighty of them will regularly brave the wind, rain and cold every winter weekend, often clad in so many layers of clothing that the golf course resembles a day out for the Michelin Man and his extended family. Man...
  • Rushing to Glory

    Pensioners love midweek golf. They can roll out of bed around lunchtime and have the butler deliver them to the Golf Club in time for a relaxed afternoon of competition. The same routine is followed by offshore workers on leave and other assorted characte...
  • Course Bites Back

    The golf course is proving very difficult to play this month. Usually, those with that opinion have been performing poorly and have run out of excuses. No explanations are required when golfers have a good score. No mention is made of the ricochet off a t...
  • Harris Close in on Trophy

    There will be coverage elsewhere in the Gazette of the Nicolson Institute Under-15 Girls’ historic victory in the Scottish Schools Shield final. One of the most impressive statistics of their performance was that, after giving their all in regulation ti...
  • Juniors on a Charge

    Junior golfers are able to compete in the senior Jackson Medal events at Stornoway Golf Club, providing their handicaps are at or below 20. For Adam Longdon, starting this season with a handicap of 25, one target would have been to qualify to compete for ...
  • Picking up the Pace

    Slow play is the bane of competitive golf. Next to bad play, slow play is the biggest drawback for anyone playing golf. In fact, some golfers find the snail’s pace of competition so excruciating that they would gladly exchange that for bad golf. Even wo...
  • Sunshine and Showers: Summer Golf is Here

    The towering figure of former Celtic player John Hartson may not have played the first golf shot of the summer in Stornoway but his charity event preceded the opening competition last Wednesday. John has lost none of his competitive edge and he and his te...
