Captains Letter 2017

Tri Nations Event

Dear Member,

Another new season at Rowallan is finally upon us. The winter does seem to last forever in Scotland but it was great to see such involvement in our winter series event. It was by far the greatest success we’ve had with an off-season competition and will hope to continue it in the future. Congratulations again to winner Tommy Webster and to all who took part. With the number’s we had playing it augers well for the new season proper, and hopefully we will have more members than ever competing in all competitions this year.

With that in mind we have more medal options than ever before, including the first Rowallan Open and our first Doc-Thom counting event, both great additions to the Ayrshire calendar. This season also brings a new Ayrshire Handicap league, which along with the scratch league gives members the chance to play for the club and play some other great Ayrshire courses.

I must say it is a great privilege to be captain of RCGC, I’m going into my sixth season as a member and it is a fantastic club to be part of. From improvements on the course, increased numbers playing and more competitions than ever things have been rapidly progressing over that time and we continue to look at ways in which we can further progress. We have our first social event of the year next Friday, which will be a fun quiz night. Hopefully we will see plenty members, partners and friends coming along. The success of these nights will be largely measured on attendance and if you have any ideas for the future please let us know.

Finally, many thanks to my predecessor Andy Macleod who was a fine Captain. Last year especially was no ordinary year. The coordination of the marshalling team for the Open Championship was no easy task and the success of that week for our team was in no small part thanks to him. Letting him win the play-off last week in our Captain vs past Captain match was the least I could do!

We have our first counting medal tomorrow, and the numbers look great on the BRS system, I’m sure you can’t wait to get started. Play well!

Yours,

Robbie
