  • Cal and Richard Take the Crown

    It’s all over. The CarHire Hebrides Winter League ended last weekend after six months and around two thousand completed rounds. In the end, only two points separated the winners and runners up. In fact, nine points was the difference between first and t...
  • Young Guns on Fire

    This time next week, it will be summer on the golf course. Eighteen holes will be in play and the first competition of the season will have been completed. One or two golfers will have surpassed their expectations but, for the vast majority, the first bit...
  • League Race Still Wide Open

    It was a weekend of unusual events in golf. Tiger Woods won a PGA Tour event for the first time in thirty months. Play for the Hassan Trophy in Morocco was suspended because of high winds gusting to 35mph, conditions similar to a weather system in the Heb...
  • Signs of Spring

    There have been a few signs recently that we are emerging into Spring from a long, dark Winter. Some of the portents of Spring are not particularly welcome: the arrival of the Council Tax bill and the thud on the doormat of the optimistically entitled Nex...
  • Cal and Richard Scramble to the Top

    This time last year, Cal Robertson and Richard Galloway began a surge that took them to a share of the CarHire Hebrides Winter League title. This year, they sit at the top of the leaderboard a month earlier than last campaign. Their competitors can only h...
  • Hot Rod and Seamus Blaze a Trail

    It is now the stage of the CarHire Hebrides Winter League when the most precious commodity in Stornoway Golf Club is a half decent handicap. Some teams have reached the point where it seems almost impossible that they will score points again. However, the...
  • All Change at the Top

    The sight of snow falling in Rome last weekend made the mild weather in Stornoway all the more enjoyable for local golfers – at least until they began Round 16 of the CarHire Hebrides Winter League. The course has not been in such good playing condition...
  • Tips From the Experts

    The perennial question of whether or not a late night Burns Supper is the best preparation for Winter League duty on the following day remains unanswered after another excellent evening at Stornoway Golf Club last Friday. Certainly, a number of those devo...
  • Fish and Chips on Course

    It was so wild last Saturday that the more lightweight golfers were advised to stay indoors. After some discussion, Norrie Mackenzie and his weekend carer, Roddy Martin, decided that not even hanging onto a golf cart would be enough to prevent Norrie bein...
  • Another Gray Day

    It is difficult to avoid any news on golf in Stornoway becoming a weather report. This time last year, we were emerging from the ice age into wild and wet weather. The contrast a year on is stark. Last weekend saw some of the best golfing weather of the w...
  • Norrie Flies the Flag

    It is much easier to predict a bad day on the golf course than a good day. Very often, the golfer can still be in the locker room when it dawns on him that this will not be his day. No clubs will be a pretty big indication that things are going wrong but ...
  • Reeves and Morrison Top the Bill

    One of the unfortunate side effects of playing golf during the festive season is that vision can be impaired to an alarming degree. The green often appears to be much further away than it actually is. At other times, the hole may seem to be much closer th...
  • The Ice Cap Melts

    The cancellation of the Boxing Day match between Town golfers and their Country cousins was particularly disappointing because the 60mph winds and heavy rain appeared to provide the kind of conditions in which country golfers thrive. In such weather, of c...
  • Scrambling Across the Ice

    The Ken MacDonald & Co TeXmas Scramble is one of the highlights of the winter calendar at Stornoway Golf Club. Last weekend’s field of more than ninety golfers was testament to the popularity of the competition. An added incentive was that the recent cl...
  • Hail, Hail and More Hail

    If any family member had asked a Stornoway golfer to help with some chore that involved being outdoors for even a few minutes last weekend, the response would probably have been along these lines: “Are you crazy? I’m not Scott of the Antarctic and, ev...
  • Wintry Weather Scuppers Golf

    The stormy weather of the past ten days put paid to any thoughts of golf last weekend. Coincidentally, the last Saturday of November was also the first round of the Winter League to be cancelled a year ago. That weekend was also the last opportunity for g...
  • Team Playing Pays Dividends

    With the exception of those who are playing at such a high level that handicaps are relatively immaterial, most golfers soon discover that playing Winter League without the benefit of a partner present is a thankless and demoralising experience. Of course...
  • Cal Wins With an Ace

    Some golfers never make a hole in one; others seem to have them regularly – regularly as in once every five years or so. If you are going to go to the trouble of making a hole in one and dealing with all the expense of free drink that entails, then it w...
  • Low Scoring in Sultry November

    The final competition of the summer season was abandoned because, basically, winter had arrived slightly earlier than expected. Fast forward a few weeks to early November and the Winter League is bathed in sunshine with the condition of the course more ak...
