The MBGC subscription for 2020 is £125, which we hope you will agree represents excellent value. Machrie Bay Golf Club AGM will be held on 19th March at 7.30pm in Machrie Hall.
I hope you all had a good Christmas and New Year and have
wintered well so far.
It has been a rather wet and windy winter so far but the only
competition to be cancelled was the annual 2 club competition . The other winter competitions have carried on as normal. With the usual stalwarts, or maybe masochists would be a better word. If you are about on a Tuesday come and join us at 12 noon. It is off the yellow tees so your handicap will not be affected.
The annual winter league between all the clubs on the island is
under way and I am pleased to say, at time of writing, after 3 matches, Machrie is topping the league undefeated. Two games to go against Lamlash at Corrie and Brodick at Whiting Bay. The club held a very successful annual dinner in November at Shiskine Golf Club. Thanks to Alan and Siobhan for an excellent meal.
Before you know it the summer season will be starting . The summer medals are held on Tuesdays . The starting times vary slightly as the lighter nights approach. See club fixture list.
I would particularly like to see more Ladies competing in The Lady Mary Cup.
I am pleased to tell you that Katie has decided to continue with catering and will be open for business around 24th March. So please give her as much support as possible. But I have to warn you if there is only one scone left on a Tuesday. It’s mine. (Captains privilege)
As you will notice the fees (subs) have risen by £5 to £125 for 2020.
I would suggest that the fees are still very good value for money.
There is no news about the course development but it is not dead and negotiations are continuing .
Looking forward to a new season.
