At Abbotsford Golf Club our aim is to promote golf, giving our members the best experience of playing competitions all year round over a variety of stunning courses throughout South Ayrshire. Belleisle Park is our home course. We regularly visit other courses such as Seafield, Troon Lochgreen and Girvan for competitions/social events. This year in 2017 our aim is to give special emphasis to our ‘5’ majors increasing their already competitive nature and to include social gatherings before and after competitions. Once again we will be proudly entering the Ayrshire Scratch League, a fantastic team event for all our talented golfers. My best wishes to all our participants in our many medals/knockout/winter & summer league/match play/Stableford and fun events. Enjoy, play well Eric Armour Captain
AGC again were triumphant against a full strength Ayr Carrick GC in the recent team match. The lads won 4-2 and a slap up feed was had afterwards. Happy Days! Defending champion Tommy Hanns continued his great season by capturing the Millennium Trophy. A great round on Seafield followed by his usual steady offering on Belleisle was enough to take the spoils.
Ben Cooney made AGC history by becoming the first member to make 2 holes in one in competition. He followed his ace in the 2013 November medal by slam dunking the 3rd in the Midweek medal over Seafield on Wednesday 19th July 2017 . Ben would like to thank his playing partners for leaving early keeping his bar bill down!
Members are reminded that it is their sole responsibility to book tee times if they want to play at particular times. They should also remember to put up the time on the AGC website tee booking sheet.
14 brave souls competed for the trophy in “challenging” conditions at Brighouse Bay. A great time was had by all. Full results on website.
Warm congratulations to Jim Kirkwood and Mike McArthur who were victorious in the midweek and weekend winter leagues respectively. Dominant and well deserved.
As the weekend winter league nears a conclusion, here are the main runners/ riders as of 11/12 Feb. Special mention to Ronnie Davidson who has blitzed Seafield, one to watch next year. WWL 2017
