  • TWO DIFFERENT DAYS OF SUMMER

    The Summer Cup sounds like a trophy that should be competed for against a backdrop of sunshine and warmth. That was indeed the case last week as the warmth of a calm, clear afternoon continued into a long, balmy evening. The conditions suggested that low ...
  • Familiar Faces for the Barber

    The mysterious appearance at the weekend of an antiquated pram in the Golf Club foyer has caught the attention of members. Informed speculation is that it is some form of Edwardian golf buggy belonging to Bronco Macarthur, who has made a recent welcome re...
  • No Excuses in the Sunshine

    One might expect that a prolonged spell of good weather would be welcomed by golfers everywhere. Not at all. The lack of rain and high wind removes a crutch from the amateur golfer. No more can he stride into the clubhouse with a nett 83, proclaiming loud...
  • Colin takes the Silver Medal

      The Western Isles County Championship is now firmly on the golfing fixture calendar for the Highlands and Islands. The inaugural event in Stornoway last weekend attracted a healthy entry with the added bonus of fine weather conditions. A challenging c...
  • County Championship for Stornoway

    The North District County Championships are among the oldest and most prestigious golfing events held in the Highlands. In the distant past, island golfers were eligible to compete in the Ross-shire or Inverness-shire championships, but local government r...
  • Wet Wet Wet - Topping the Bill in Stornoway

    Last weekend, Stornoway golf was all about the weather and how to cope with it. The rain was incessant and, at one stage, resulted in a late afternoon course inspection before competitions could continue. Some golfers seemed untroubled. Rita Macdonald wo...
  • Explosions - Few Casualties Reported

    Reports of small explosions in the vicinity of Stornoway Golf Club should not cause alarm. Most of these are naturally occurring events, which are to be expected at this time of year and do no lasting damage. Flights to and from the islands continue to op...
  • Learning to Drive

    Taking my son for a driving lesson earlier this evening, I wasn’t really expecting much other than the usual couple of stalls, the shuffling of the steering wheel through the hands at the ten-to-two position and the rigid observance of every speed-limit...
  • A Hole in One and A Round Too Far

    Standing on the seventeenth tee, needing a birdie, par finish just to make buffer zone is not a very attractive place to be. An unusual way of resolving a difficult predicament would be to go for a hole in one, which is exactly the approach taken by David...
  • Watch your "C"s

      Whatever anyone might have labelled me these past forty-odd years and yes there have been a few unsavoury (if accurate) monikers, I have always grated at being described as conservative. I suppose having been exposed to the worst excesses of mad Marga...
  • That Time of Year Again

    I knew it was getting near “that” time of year again as herself started to get a bit tetchy about my spending four nights and a Saturday at the golf club. With the nights lengthening, therefore the ability to fit in 18 full holes before dark, no-ma...
  • Historic Results and Recounts

    At a time of momentous political upheaval, it is good to note that Stornoway golfers made their own small contribution to A Week of Extraordinary Events. ...
  • Slow isn't good

    Fresh from a winter of underachievement where the tag of “contenders” or “possible favourites” weighed too heavily on his and partner Kenny MacIver’s shoulders, Alan MacLeod emerged from his recent slumber, producing a magnificent round of 61...
