This though will also be reviewed as the government announcements happen in February. We will keep you up to date with any future changes. Refunds will be organised this week for all the entrants to West Kilbride and Crail

Due to circumstances outwith our control due as a consequence of the COVID 19, we have no option but to change the date and format of our event to SATURDAY 22ND AUGUST SUNDAY 23RD AUGUST This will now be a 36 hole event, 18 holes each day because of this change we will make a NEW draw for the event on Friday 24th July. Entries are re-open also up to a maximum 81, so there are some, not many slots left. I will assume that all current competitors can play unless I here otherwise, we will issue refunds to anyone who can no longer make the new date, I do though hope you can all still make this If anyone has any queries, please do not hesitate to contact me.
It is with regret that we are having to postpone the U12 and U10 Championship. Scottish Golf will not allow...
Due to recent guidance from Scottish Golf regards the holding of 'Open' Competitions we have had to take the decision to change the golf course for our U15, U13, U12 and U10 Championships to Castle Park GC. The reason behind this is that, all juniors who register with us automatically receive a free Junior Membership of Castle Park GC, therefore we can hold this event as a club championship. For anyone who has already entered and no longer wish to participate please contact me asap so I can organise a refund. No refunds will be given after 5th July.
