• Charity day in support of Macmillan Nurses Charity day in support of Macmillan Nurses

    Four members of the Club are conducted a charity day on the 20 Jun 16 to support Macmillan Nurses. Organised by Peter Armour he wishes to raise funds to support the continuing fight against cancer.  His brother Paul was diagnosed with Testicular cancer in 2015, Paul is now in remission after battling the cancer with chemotherapy at Gartnaval.  As a thank you to the doctors and nurses that treated Paul, we wish to complete the challenge.  We will tee off at 0530 to begin our games, hopefully this will witness us completing at approx 8pm (with numerous aches and pains). We have placed a charity box in the changing room and have a just giving page (link below), it is our desire to raise £400, we are already half way there, however any more donations through the link to support the battle against cancer would be greatly appreciated. Scott the professional has also kindly donated a prize for our team, this will be won by the last man standing ! Players: Peter Armour, Craig Campbell, James Mclauglin and Steven Gray (average age – 150!!) If you see 4 old gents labouring on the course 20th June , please excuse their slow play !!

  • Juniors Fight for a great Half Juniors Fight for a great Half

    Elderslie were welcomed to Erskine last night. With Erskine keen to take the points, and their first 3 players having low handicaps (2 – 8) we knew it would be a tall order to take anything from the game.  Regardless Lewis, Ben and Caolan lead the way and fought bravely to take all 3 players to the 16 and 17th hole. Behind them young Rhys, Jack and Evan utilised their handicaps to try and restore some Elderslie pride. This is where the tie heated up, all 3 Elderslie players fluctuated from being behind to even.  Confident Rhys slowly pulled away to win his game on the 16th with Evan and Jack T continuing to fight. Consistent Evan won on the 17th  with a super chip to 1ft. So it was down to Jack T , 1 down through 15, he played wonderfull to win the next to holes and half the 18th to win his match Not forgetting the reserve match with Josh C and Josh G , this resulted in a tight match that would have resulted in a Elderslie win (we ended on 17th due to timings). A great game played in a friendly manner; all the kids (and the adults) enjoyed the great food afterwards and the interesting speeches. Scores: Lewis Greenless (8) lost 3/1 Ben Campbell (8) lost 3/2 Caolan McGoldrick (11) lost 7/5 (speech!!) Evan Cole (26) won 2/1 Rhys McIlroy won 3/2 Jack Tourish won 1 up   Results so far: Caldwell away – Halved Erskine at home – […]

It was great to watch them tee off from the first and heading out to battle against the course as well as the temperatures. A long and fun day witnessed 8 players make it through to the quarter finals to be played Thu, however all the kids were winners (including the Dads, who looked like they required first aid !)   Players through: Ben Campbell/Jack Burns/Josh Campbell/Jack Tourish/Rhys McIlroy/Evan Cole/Caolan McGoldrick/Josh Gray

  • Juniors take on Newton Shield Champions Juniors take on Newton Shield Champions

    Juniors take on Newton Shield Champions Elderslie welcomed the Newton Shield Champions, Old Ranfurly. The Champions fielded a strong team with the initial 3 players boasting handicaps of 2, 5 and 6! It was also a warm return for Aiden O’Hagan the current Elderslie Junior Open champion. The drives off the first were fantastic with Elderslie staying in touch, and commencing the tough battle. As Robert McIlroy, Scott McGrenaghan, Andy (Old Ranfurly Junior Convenor) and myself (Craig Campbell) watched the games it was exciting stuff.  2  games were quickly over (Lewis and Caolan), however the rest battled on to the last few holes.  The overall results are detailed below, however it does not state what a great night it was between two clubs who have become firm friends. Well done to Jack Tourish whose first Newton Shield performance resulted in a superb win. Also of note are the two reserve players who won their matches. Elderslie lost 5 – 1 Scores: Lewis Greenless (8) v Kieran O’Brian (5)  lost 6/5 Ben Campbell (8) v Matt Dalrimple (2) lost 4/2 Caolan McGoldrick (11) v Aiden O’Hagan (4)  lost 8/7 Heather Mushet (11) v Callum Bell (12) lost 3/2 Jack Tourish (24) v Ollie Weir (13) won 5/4 Evan Cole (24) v Arran Stirling (17) 1 down Jack Burns (15) v Callum Adams (17) won 3/2 Josh Campbell (20) v Alfie Sidebothan won 10/8  Results so far: Caldwell away – Halved Erskine at home – Elderslie Lost 4.5 to 1.5 Old Ranfurly – Elderslie Lost 5 – […]
