  • First Sign of Winter: Course Closed

    Firstly, an apology. Last week, the golf notes contained a smug comment on how unseasonal the weather has been for the opening rounds of the Winter League. That was a serious error of judgement. Barely two hours after committing these thoughts to paper, t...
  • Website Transfer Update

    The Stornoway Golf Club Website is now running on servers at a new hosting company. The transfer should be completed over the next few days, so if you can't find something give it a while. A couple of new features have been implemented: RSS feeds : RS...
  • Top Rankin' for Bob

    When the camera pans along the substitutes bench during a football or rugby match, do you ever wonder what the substitutes are thinking? Some will no doubt be thinking of what else they could usefully be doing other than warming a seat in the dug-out....
  • Losing Teams Facing Bleak Christmas

    In an ever-changing world, it can be reassuring that some things remain the same. On the other hand, some of the things that never change have now become deep-rooted problems that the greatest minds on the planet cannot resolve. As a result, our daily die...
  • Winning Teams are Well Under Par

    With so many teams contesting the Winter League, it is no great surprise that the competition is close at this stage. The top twenty teams are separated by only 17 points. What is surprising is the standard of competition and last weekend is as good an e...
  • Flute and Marching Ban Strike the Right Note

    The handicap system makes golf a unique sport in which all players, regardless of ability, can compete on a level playing field. A handicap is a measure that typically represents the number of strokes per round a player takes more than that which a "scrat...
  • Winners Keep it in the Family

    The course may still be green and the grass still growing but the Annual Prizegiving last weekend was yet more evidence that the summer season is over.   With a pessimistic outlook nurtured by years of disappointment on the course, Stornoway golfers by...
  • Bethesda Challenge Basks in Sunshine

    From first light, the sun split a cloudless sky, with a warm breeze nudging the temperature to 20 degrees. Kenny Dalglish, along with another eighty golfers, competed for the Alcan Trophy. A film crew making a documentary roamed across the course. D R Mac...
  • Major win for Murdo

    The RBS Dalglish Bethesda Challenge this weekend will bring the curtain down on another summer season of golf in Stornoway. Once again the stage is set for an excellent tournament, with the course looking surprisingly lush for this time of year. The final...
  • Normal Service Resumed: Ken Wins Again

    Televised sport has long been a source of inspiration for armchair fans of all ages as well as for those actively participating. Even those involved in junior football, for example, can use the insight assimilated from TV pundits to ensure that the small ...
  • Ailing Golfers Rescued by Lifeboat

    Last weekend saw the spectacle of golfers splashing around a rain-soaked course in a competition in aid of, appropriately, the RNLI. This worthy charity always attracts strong support and a large field contested the event. The first prize of a silver Life...
  • Won One, Lost One for Ken

    Ken Galloway has featured in these notes so often this year that it is difficult to find anything new to write about him. That in itself can be quite dangerous as it is tempting to invent some information to avoid repetition. Retirement has given Ken a le...
  • Driven to Distraction by Midges

    The most regular visitor to the golf course in recent weeks has been the midge, closely followed by Allan Macleod. It was fitting that both should play leading roles in the Centenary Medal Final held last week. Attendances at golf competitions by the mid...
  • Only weeks until Winter

    The finals of the Centenary Medal and Caledonian Medal over the coming days herald the end of midweek golf for the season; and the realisation that winter golf is only a month away.  An Indian summer might help to lift the gloom and give the Greens staff...
  • Onion Relish - Norrie adds Club Championship to Western Isles title

    The ferocious wind of last weekend threw up an interesting query on the rules governing movement of the ball on the green. The scenario involves a player marking his ball on the green, then replacing the ball and removing his ball-marker. Prior to the pla...
  • Club Championship - Part One

    Four rounds of golf played on two consecutive Saturdays may be the best way to decide on the club champion for the year, but it is also an energy-sapping marathon. The marathon appears to be made slightly longer by the positioning of tees as far back as p...
  • Norrie's Notes 26.07.10

    Summer in the Western Highlands and Islands has always been a time for re-acquaintances. Family members and cousins “exiled” to the mainland come home to visit and holiday, as well as the many tourists who flock to take advantage of the natural beauty...
  • A Good Week for the Clan Macdonald

    The curtain came down on Golf Week last Saturday. It was fitting that the final event, the One Day Open, should be won with the lowest score of the week by one of the most promising of local golfers, David Black. His gross 63 (nett 60) missed equalling th...
  • Hebridean Festival of Golf

    Last weekend provided the perfect start for Stornoway Golf Week. The two qualifying rounds of the Western Isles Open were bathed in sunshine, with a gentle breeze, on a course once again in superb condition. All the ingredients were there to allow competi...
