Stonehaven Golf Club

By Alex Russon / April 15, 2024

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 […]

Stonehaven Golf Club

By Alex Russon / April 7, 2024

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. […]

Stonehaven Golf Club – Winter League

By Alex Russon / January 28, 2024

The annual winter league is beyond halfway now, time then for a summary of standings. It’s been a traditionally grim season weather wise, but competitors know fine well what they’re buying into so don’t grumble about the cold temperatures, biting winds and sodden turf. It’s an opportunity to get out of the house, keep active […]

Stonehaven Golf Club this week

By Alex Russon / September 20, 2022

Without wishing to sound indelicate, it’s been a week for the club’s more ‘experienced’ golfers here at Stonehaven. The club boasts a thriving youth fellowship and there’s a very healthy middle aged spread, if that’s not a contradiction in terms, but it was the turn of those advancing somewhat in years to scoop the silverware […]

Stonehaven Golf Club

By Alex Russon / September 5, 2022

Club golfers are creatures of habit, routinely playing in the same twoballs and threeballs week after week, joined at the hip to those with whom they’ve frequented the fairways for years. Angus Martin for example has the misfortune of sharing Stoney’s eighteen holes with me most Wednesday afternoons and likewise, I’m simultaneously forced to tolerate […]
