Greenlees Result against Cochrane Castle

Another close away match and fortunately that tail keeps wagging.
Cochrane Castle fielded current county team members (who helped RLCGA reach the finals at Inchmarlo in September) and this made tough matches for the girls out first but they competed well. The girls towards the back of the team earned our points and managed to get in before the downpour.

Alternatives for the siting of a New Clubhouse

As is in the Newsletter Section posted on the main website --- the proposal is to consider possible alternatives for the siting of a New Clubhouse and the possible alternatives to course layout should the existing Clubhouse, 1st and 18th be redeveloped for housing. The objective was not to arrive at a fixed proposal but to demonstrate that potential exists to create a course of the same or better standard than our existing course. We also are aware of some failures in the location of the existing Clubhouse and some of the failings within the course and its layout. The final proposals will require to be made in conjunction with the selected developer and a professional Golf Course architect.
To achieve this we have identified three areas of ground owned by the club outside the existing course boundaries. The areas identified are the existing Clevans Course plus two areas currently tenanted north of the 6th and 7th holes and andarea west of 8th Green and behind 9th tee as shown on Figure 1 below. We appreciate that the tenancy agreement requires to be resolved and have presented some solutions which do not require occupation of this ground.
