Stonehaven Golf Club

By Alex Russon / April 28, 2024

week # 4 Stonehaven Golf Club’s tee-sheet spoke volumes on Monday, littered as it was with individuals looking to play their golf alone. This is often the way after a Saturday Medal, chastened members taking action to fix humbling horror shows. It’s an exorcism attempt really, 9 holes of solitary golf to deal with swing […]

week #3 (part II) Cowie Cup Rd 1 & Willie Watt Qualifier Most Stonehaven golfers commence the season with a personal aspiration, perhaps to reduce one’s handicap, qualify for the last two rounds of the club championship or simply complete the campaign without chucking their clubs over a cliff. We’re rather like marathon runners in […]

week #3 (part 1) Your golfing correspondent’s season got itself off the ground this week, a fortnight after everyone else’s. Work commitments and a (triumphant) trip to Villa Park had prevented me from entering the fray until now. It was a tonic not to be playing in a full set of long johns but it […]

week #2 All eyes were glued on Augusta National at the weekend as The Masters played out in the USA. Hats off to Scottie Scheffler for taking the title and all that but I’d like to see him try and find the 2nd green at Stoney in the weather we’ve been suffering lately. Blustery conditions […]

Week #1 After six gruelling months of winter golf, Stonehaven Golf Club finally ventured into the summer season this week, a relief to all. The winter mats are now gone, the fairways cut and the greens rolled, everything is set…ahem, except for the weather. We were rained off on Wednesday for the first comp of […]

Stonehaven Golf – a diary

By Alex Russon / April 2, 2024

It’s with a degree of trepidation that your correspondent enters the new golfing season. They say form is temporary and class permanent but quite frankly I’ve neither; my form is patchy and the only class I’m familiar with involves yoga. My excitement levels are high but expectation levels low. It all starts on Saturday (weather […]

Winter 2 Ball Scramble We’re at the fag end of the winter season now and will soon be back on the full length summer course. For the time being golfers keep their respective hands in, braving the elements for a three hour hack before a hot bovril. This week it was a 2 Ball Scramble […]

Stonehaven Golf Club – Winter League Winners

By Alex Russon / March 10, 2024

This winter has not been kind to Stonehaven’s golfing fraternity, Baltic temperatures and grey skies testing the resolve of the hardiest of souls. Such conditions don’t come as a surprise given we live in northern Scotland, but still it takes an admirable level of commitment to see the season through. Finals Day was at the […]

Stonehaven Golf – Winter League finalists decided

By Alex Russon / March 4, 2024

And so, after eighteen weeks of competition, the gruelling winter league programme nears its climax. Last weekend marked the final opportunity for competitors to register a score towards their aggregated total and this Saturday’s Finals Day qualifiers are now known. The winter league is split into three separate competitions; Singles (nett), Doubles (nett) and Doubles […]

Stonehaven Golf Club – Winter League Update

By Alex Russon / February 7, 2024

Only four weekends remain of the winter league before the cut is made and Finals Day pairings planned. Given poor weather, there have been some unplayable weekends since the league began in November, but hopefully 12 rounds will be completed (of which the best 9 contribute towards competitors’ aggregate totals). I hope that makes sense. […]
