The 2016 summer season is well under way and even if the weather hasn't been very spring like, all the season opening matches were very successful and it was great to see so many people playing in them!

With the gents and ladies medal competitions, matchplay ties and team matches having started and visitors and all sizes of groups also coming to Highland Perthshire recently, we have seen a busy early period to the season and long may this continue.

From the Course

After a long and hard winter, the course has come though the winter relatively well. We weren't alone in suffering from the flood damage throughout a very wet winter and we still are experiencing the after effects from water coming onto the course from the land bordering the course. We are working closely with the Forestry Commission and Pitlochry Estates in trying to resolve this as soon as possible to get the course back into tip top shape and we appreciate all your patience whilst we get a resolution to this problem.     

The greens have been aerated and fed in the last few weeks so we're happy with the way they are looking and playing at the moment. Over the next month the greens will be scarified and top dressed with sand and with this early season work we are confident that the course will look and play very well throughout a busy 2016, but we would like to enjoy working in the warm sunshine for a chance rather than the 'cool' weather we are experiencing just now!  

Happy golfing!

From the Juniors

The 2016 golf season is now well under way for the junior section and with that we have seen a lot of our junior members practicing, playing and generally coming out of their winter hibernation. It is great to see so many kids using all of our excellent on-site facilities, this early in the season, and fingers crossed this positive trend continues and the juniors see for themselves the benefits of putting some hard work into their golf games.

The Monday medal nights haven't had the best of weather, but Stewart Burns has gotten off to a very good start with some good early season form and has laid down a marker for the other kids to try and catch up! Well done Stewart.

The coaching sessions on Sunday afternoons and Wednesday evenings have started in earnest too, and like the competitive side of things, we have seen a large percentage of the junior membership come along to these dedicated sessions to have our 2 PGA Pro's cast an expert eye over their stance and swings to keep the kids on the right track - again long may this continue! 

Have a great 2016 season!
