2018 Fixture List Announced

We are delighted to announce the 2018 Fixtures for Rowallan Castle Golf Club. Thank you to everyone who emailed in their suggestions before Christmas time and hopefully we have managed to accommodate your requests. Each year along with the club the fixture list grows, and fingers crossed we can get some sunshine on our backs this year!

Ready Golf:

The club will now implement Ready golf which has been backed by the R&A to help improve pace of play on the golf course. Ready golf applies when playing in all competitions at Rowallan except Match play.

Slide1

A good video produced by the R&A below explains the process of Ready Golf.

2018 Fixtures:

On the following like you will find the fixtures in PDF formats 2018 Fixture List Print Form and  on Excel format 2018 RCGC fixture list. We will try and follow these fixtures throughout the year, but if we must re-arrange due to weather or other circumstances this will be changed and sent out. Within the fixtures for the year we have our usual medal/Match play competitions, and listed below we would like to introduce a few new events for this year.

  • 9 Hole Medal Competitions
  • New Highlander Cup format
  • Three Tee Challenge
  • Rowallan Castle Gents Open
  • Ayrshire Matchplay Championship
  • Golphin for Kids

Continuing from last year we have the House Flag, Campbell Scramble, Members & Guest Day, Presidents Quaich and more. We have created a Competition Format document (attached) which explains all the Rowallan competitions.

The first change is maintenance week, it will now happen on the third week of the month as oppose to the last week of the month. There will be no Wednesday medal on this week.

Secondly, is a new format for the Highlander Cup. Instead of being played over a Saturday and Sunday it will now change to qualifying scores from Monthly medals with the final being played in September.

A new fun event has been created called the Three Tee Challenge this will be a stableford event and will play from the White, Yellow and Red tees.

Unfortunately, there will be no Belhaven Club Handicap Championships this year as Scottish Golf have stopped this event. To replace this event, Scottish Golf along with the R&A they have introduced the national 9-hole tournament. Our qualifier will be on the 11th of April and more details will come nearer the event.

 

The Old Castle Course:

9 Hole medal competitions will run over the first 8 holes on the course then the 19th hole. This loop will now be called The Old Castle Course.  All 9-hole medals will be stableford competitions and will follow the same booking process/entry criteria as full medals. Due to the 9-hole course coming, we will no longer offer 8-hole memberships as these will change to 9-hole membership.

 

Local Rules:

Attached is the local rules for the golf course, before the medal competitions start it is worth looking over these as it could help shave a couple of shots from your score. Please remember the nett double bogey rule for all medal competitions!

 

Social Evenings:

Also listed on the fixture list are social evenings. This is something that we would like to grow as the year progresses, with the aim being to have one social evening a month at the club. We will have different events such as Masters Quiz night, Casino Night, Champions Dinner, Prizegiving (date tbc) and more.
