Club match - Ayr Carrick v Chase results.

  • The Annual Challenge match between Ayr Carrick and the current holders, the Chase Golf Club, took place today, Saturday June 22 over Belleisle golf course playing from the white tees. The format of the match is 4ball better ball match play with 6 matches in total to decide the winners, although as with the Ryder Cup any tied match overall means the holders retain the Trophy for another year. In the opening tie, Robert Gilchrist and David Mansell for the Chase took on Craig and Ronnie Anderson and the away team (Chase) were victorious by 3&2. Match 2 between Stephen Hannah and Robert Greenwood for the Chase and Paul Gilchrist and Lewis Kerr for Ayr Carrick was a tight affair which went all the way to the final green where the spoils were shared in a halved match. Game 3 saw Andy McIntyre and Hugh Mackie for the Chase take on Harry Campbell and Lex Galloway for Ayr Carrick with the Chase once again emerging as winners by 4&3. Game 4 was another titanic battle between Ian Speirs and Paul Middleditch for the Chase against Colin Park and Campbell Pettigrew for Ayr Carrick which once more progressed to the final green with the points halved again. At this stage the Chase had retained the Trophy but victory was secured outright when Stan Smith and James Burnett for the Chase were winners by 5&4 over Hugh Reid and Stewart Chambers of Ayr Carrick. The final match saw some consolation for the home side as father and son combination, David and Connor Paterson for Ayr Carrick inflicted defeat on John Cathcart and John Brodie by 6&5 to make the overall score Ayr Carrick 2pts/Chase 4pts. After the match both teams retired to the Balgarth Pines for liquid refreshments as well as a buffet provided by Ayr Carrick, followed by the Trophy presentation to the winning Captain, Ian Speirs of the Chase Golf Club as a hat-trick of wins was secured. We look forward to renewing the rivalry again next year when the Chase will be the home side.

  • Past Captains Trophy/April Medal and Qualifier 1 results.

  • The Past Captains Trophy/April Medal and Qualifier 1 took place on June 12/14/15/16, over Seafield golf course playing from the white tees. With places also up for grabs in both the Scratch and Nett Club Championship draws, this week's entry numbered 26 players and the scramble for places in both events was intense. The competiton itself saw only 6 scores of par or better with the rough thick in places as well as the greens at their fastest so far this season. The battle for 4th spot was tight but with the best gross score of level par 69 and a round containing birdies at holes 5/6/11/13/17, was current Club Champion, Alan Smeeton who pipped both Hugh Mackie and David Mansell on countback with his nett 69. On the podium for the 2nd week in a row was Roy McCubbin whose nett 68 (1 under par) contained birdies at holes 12/13. Unfortunately triple bogeys at holes 2/18 killed off any chances of Roy winning again this week. Runner-up with a nett 67 (2 under par) was Tony Bloor, who despite a steady round, ultimately will rue his double bogey finish at hole 18. Our winner this week was Gerry Cavanagh with a fine round of nett 66 (3 under par) with his round containing birdies at holes 11/14 as he was victorious by a single shot. The only Two this week was scored by Scott Kirk on hole 15 and Scott picks up the prize pot all by himself.

  • Chase Golf Club Singles and Doubles draws for season 2023/24.

  • The draws for the Singles and Doubles have been posted on the website for all to peruse. All matches, excluding the Final, must be concluded on the day played i.e. in the event of a tie the players must proceed to the 19th or subsequent holes to conclude the contest. Extensions will only be given for golf course closures or in the event of a prolonged play off (darkness), but only after the Handicap Secretary has been contacted. Players are reminded that they are ineligible to participate in a Strokeplay competition if they are completing a Matchplay tie as differing penalties may apply to any Rules infringements. Therefore, no ties will be incorporated into any Strokeplay event draws. Like previous years there is no challenger so all players are equally responsible for arranging a MUTUALLY AGREED DATE and TIME TO PLAY. We would ask that all competitors exercise common sense in arranging ties. Failure to agree a date will result in both parties being disqualified, unless the Handicap Secretary has been contacted at least 7 days before the play by date and made aware of the difficulties. Only the Handicap Secretary will be responsible for allowing extensions, if he believes circumstances warrant it. Good luck to all who are taking part.

  • Electronic score returns

  • Following 2 incidents where a member was left without a game, the following procedure must now be followed by all players who pull out of a game after the draw has been made. It is now a requirement that the player pulling out contacts EVERYONE PLAYING IN THE GROUP to inform them. This should happen as a common courtesy but clearly has not been.
