Bannockburn Golf Club News


The Bannockburn Golf Club has just completed the 2016 Open Tournament. This is the second time that the tournament has run during summer instead of the traditional winter timeslot.


There have been many visitors to the club over the weekend with many comments made about the superb playing conditions of the course during the tournament. With ideal weather conditions and much hard work by the members and the committee of the club leading up to and over the whole weekend this year’s open has again been very successful. 

Wednesday 10th February was the Ladies Opening Day for 2016, with their first comp of the year. It was wonderful to have many playing and non playing lady members enjoying lunch and the presentation of ‘The Ladies Summer Competition’ winner.

Congratulations to the first ‘Ladies Summer Competition’ winner, June Peterson. June played consistent golf over the summer even on those very warm days. 

Also congratulation to the winner of Bannockburn Kitchens sponsored Men’s Summer Cup winner won by Allan Lennon who played some fine golf over the summer period.

Another break in by burglars has occurred over the summer months at the club with the loss of some very significant items of plant that club volunteers use to maintain the course.  

The General Committee are now installing security cameras in and around the clubhouse and workshop for added security. It is certainly very disappointing to our members that there are individuals out there in the community who have such low values in life in that they can come in and steal and damage items from a golf club that is entirely run by volunteers.
