We had a home Greenlees match today against Hilton Park Golf Club.

The forecast was for rain in the afternoon, but the rain only lasted a couple of holes. Blustery winds perhaps kept the worst of the rain away. It was a victory for the Greenock team.

It was a wet drive down the M77 today for our Greenless match at East Renfrewshire Golf Club.

The forecast was for a dry afternoon. Gradually the rain eased as tee off approached and after a short delay in clearing the greens of water, the matches got underway. The course was very wet but the greens were true and the forecast was correct with the rain more or less staying off until the matches finished.

The final result East Renfrewshire 6 - Greenock 1.

The Greenlees team had a short journey up the motorway for the first away match this season at Erskine Golf Club.

By the time the first matches teed off the wind had increased making it very gusty. Several heavy showers engulfed the course but soon the grey skies cleared, the wind died down and the sun came out making it feel rather warm. Some views of the course can be seen below.

The Greenlees season got underway today with a home match against Bothwell Castle Golf Club.

Sunny skies and a slight breeze made lovely conditions for golf. With hardly any rain in the last 10 days, the course had plenty of run but the greens were fast and tricky making the putting very difficult.

Greenock started the season with a victory.

The final score Greenock 5 Bothwell Castle 2.
