  • Juniors get a draw at Caldwell Juniors get a draw at Caldwell

    A refreshing and lovely day witnessed the juniors play a fantastic game that ended in an overall draw. The juniors and adults were made very welcomed by both Vice Captain Brian and Junior Convenor Graham. A fantastic game went all the way, with the handicapped players earning all the points! This is a new format which dictates the first 3 juniors play off bare feet with the remaining 3 utilising their official handicaps. After our first 3 players lost their matches it was not looking good, however the youngsters battled on with two of our handicap players playing for the first time(Evan/Josh) in Newton Shield colours.  Young Evan came back from 1 down with 2 to play to take it on the 18th, closely followed by young Josh who fought back to take it on the 17th!! Overall a brilliant day made all the better with a junior section within Caldwell that made us feel very welcomed and suitably at home. Scores: Lewis Greenless (8) v Stewart Percy (4) lost 7/6 Ben Campbell (8) v Alan Donnely (4) lost 6/5 Caolan McGoldrick (11) v Cameron Percy (14) lost 2/1 Jack Burns (15) v Kevin King (17) won 2 up Evan Cole (26) v Brandon McDonald (23) won 1 up Josh Gray (25) v Andrew Ward (26) won 2/1 Josh Campbell (no reserve member to play)

  • New Display in Clubhouse New Display in Clubhouse

    This week saw the opening of a new display in the clubhouse. It  recognises the achievements of Stuart Murray and Stephen McAllister, two of Elderslie’s finest ever golfers, both of whom came through the junior ranks at the club. It is hoped that the display will, among other things, help inspire our current juniors to set and achieve their own golfing goals.  The display also features many items of interest from the club’s archives and illustrates some of our club’s proud, 100+ years of history. Stuart and Stephen are pictured at the display with Club Captain Robert Reilly.  Stuart was dominant in amateur golf in the 1950s and ’60s — culminating in his Scottish championship success when he beat Ronnie Shade 2 and 1 in the final at Muirfield in 1962. Playing No. 1 for GB&I in the 1963 Walker Cup at Turnberry, his success included a 3 and 1 victory over Deane Beman who was later to become commissioner of the US PGA. Stephen’s exceptional success came in the 1980s and ’90s. Encouraged by victory as an amateur in the world-ranked Lytham Trophy of 1983, he then stepped up to the professional ranks. Further triumphs followed in the glorious year of 1990 when he won two tournaments on the PGA European Tour: The Atlantic Open and The Dutch Open. Later that year he joined Sandy Lyle and Sam Torrance in the three-man Scottish team for the Alfred Dunhill Cup at St Andrews. Stuart had asked that a trophy he donated be played for by novice juniors who may not […]
