LATEST UPDATE - monday 19th July 2021
The club has arranged for a defibrillator training session on Monday 9th August at 7.00pm in the clubhouse. Any members who wish to take part should add their name and contact telephone number to the sheets on the notice boards.
You may be aware of the updated guidance released yesterday from Scottish Golf which intimated that course furniture, namely bunker rakes and touching/removing of flags can now resume. SLC have confirmed that there have been discussions this morning with maintenance staff at all their courses, and they have decided to implement these changes from next week. As such, these new regulations will come into effect for all club competitions from Saturday 24th July.
The course maintenance staff will spray the flagpoles with disinfectant every time they cut the greens, and they will spray the bunker rakes every time the bunkers are raked in the mornings. We would still advise golfers to carry their own sanitiser and use when required during their round.
There may be golfers who still do not wish to touch and use the rakes/flags at this time; the local rule of discretionary placement in bunkers (within six inches of the original ball position and not nearer the hole) therefore continues until further notice.
Langlands Gents Open
The Gents Open was a great success on Saturday 10th July , thanks to everyone who contributed to the day. Congratulations to winner Michael Ather, pictured here with club captain John Pollock.
Pace of play
All members are reminded that it is their responsibility to play at a reasonable pace; you should always:
Aim to keep up with the group in front, not just be ahead of the group behind
Be ready to play when it's your turn
Be aware of where your group is in relation to the groups ahead and behind; consider letting a faster group behind you play through
Consider where you leave your golf bag in relation to your exit point from the green to the next tee, which saves unnecessary waiting for those playing behind
Consider playing "ready golf" in your group - the video below should help if you are not aware of this concept.
