  • Teachers in a Class of Their Own

    The untimely passing of Severiano Ballesteros last weekend was sad news for a generation of golfers inspired by the Spaniard. His swashbuckling style, highly charged emotional play and free spirit were infectious and Seve became the catalyst for a renaiss...
  • No Royal Celebration for Middleton

    It could have been the week of his life for one Stornoway golfer. Pete Middleton was only two small letters away from marrying an heir to the throne; but in life, as in golf, it is often the small things that make all the difference. That explains why, in...
  • Red Hot Lava Scorches Course

    We are privileged to be living in an area where the local newspaper not only reports news but also predicts it with unerring accuracy and with such confidence that discerning readers are able to profit financially if they are so inclined. Last week’s go...
  • That Kevin Na Moment

    There are many ways to ruin a scorecard in golf. One of the most spectacular is probably blowing up on a single hole in a manner that is as devastating as it is unexpected. The American tour professional Kevin Na did exactly that in last week’s Texas Op...
  • Sunshine and Showers - Summer Season is Underway

    The 2011 US Masters tournament will live long in the memory of those who watched the dramatic finale unfold as half a dozen players jostled for the lead over the last nine holes. The abiding memories will be the contrasting fortunes of Charl Schwarzel and...
  • Winter League Bows Out With a Tie

    Golf is a game of contrasts. It is played over thousands of yards and yet its outcome is decided by inches. At first appearance, it is a physical challenge but it very quickly becomes a test of mental endurance. The sight of a ball launched 250 to 300 yar...
  • Winter League Goes To The Wire

    After six long months, through every possible combination of weather conditions, the Winter League enters its final hours this weekend. There are still twelve teams with a realistic chance of winning and a mere five points separate the top six teams. It a...
  • First Glimpse of Summer

    Just as the cuckoo heralds the arrival of Spring, there are signals for golfers of the impending summer season. One sign is the appearance of the new club diary; a second is a sighting of the five-bellied Kenny Maciver in the vicinity of the Golf Club; an...
  • A Tale of Two Seasons

    Even the most hardened of Winter League competitors would have felt a touch of sympathy for those teams turning up at dawn last Saturday to play golf. The temperature was -3° Celsius and the golf course lay covered in a blanket of hard white frost. Inste...
  • Winter League Enters Home Straight

    With only four weeks remaining of the CarHire Hebrides Winter League, this is the point when all those with a prospect of winning summon up the energy for one final push. This year it would appear that 100 points should be enough to take the title. Those ...
  • Tight at the Top - Still Hope at the Foot

    When the rugby team you follow trails by 40 points as the game reaches its last quarter, you may be excused for leaving the scene early. If your football team is 40 points adrift with only weeks remaining in the campaign, you would be forgiven for looking...
  • Regime Change but no Change in Weather

    It may not have taken weeks of protest in Perceval Square nor flag-waving gatherings on the Macaulay Road roundabout, but Stornoway Golf Club has quietly joined in the latest popular pursuit: regime change. In a manner more reminiscent of dictatorship ra...
  • Early Birds Reap the Rewards

    This week’s AGM brings the club captaincy of Norrie ‘Tomsh’ Macdonald to an end. If the measure of Norrie’s success as Captain is the comparison between the condition of the Club at the start and close of his tenure, then he has been a remarkable ...
  • Past Masters on a Charge

    There are golfers who take shelter when they see Dennis Hall lining up a golf shot. Experience has taught them that if the ball travels in the wrong direction, it is quite possible that the club will follow the same trajectory immediately afterwards. And ...
  • Burns Victims Miss Out on Another Fine Day

    For the second successive Saturday in this Winter League campaign, calm weather set the scene for low scoring and it required a four under par nett total to collect any scoring points at all. Unfortunately for some teams, the day coincided with another mo...
  • Fair Weather Brings out the Best in Golfers

    Feeling under par is generally believed to be an indication of health problems. By contrast, in the bizarre world of golf, being under par is a positively good thing. Being considerably under par is an excellent position to be in. Unfortunately, being und...
  • Pongo With Jam on Top

    Footballers have always had a close association with the game of golf. The current crop of Stornoway golfers is no different and has a substantial number of past and present football players. Those who are no longer able to run around – or, at the very ...
  • Settling Old Scores as Golf Returns

    The return of settled mild weather after Christmas brought a welcome end to seven day sporting activity on the golf course. The only reminders of sledging are now the abandoned upturned car bonnets and other debris strewn across the course. Like addicts g...
  • Norrie's Notes 13/12/10

    Another weekend without golf and with not much prospect of a let up in the weather, or indeed the frozen conditions of the courses locally, any respite would appear to be on a very distant horizon indeed. The notion of strolling the fairways on balmy summ...
  • Big Thaw Sparks Big Scramble

    The fallout from the snow and ice, which brought golf in Stornoway to a standstill for the past fortnight, continues to rumble on. Golfers who were trapped in their homes for two long weekends were incensed when they learned that their Greens Convener spe...
