Kirkhill bowlers take to golf greens

Rutherglen Reformer - - Motors - Mur­ray Spooner

Mem­bers of Kirkhill Bowl­ing Club re­cently switched sport to mark the end of the bowls out­door play­ing sea­son.

Pres­i­dent John O’Brien and some com­mit­tee mem­bers or­gan­ised a golf out­ing to Cam­bus­lang Golf Club and played two rounds of nine holes.

The first nine were played with a stan­dard team hand­i­cap for­mat and the sec­ond as a Texas scram­ble.

Twelve Kirkhill mem­bers, in­clud­ing five from the golf club, formed four teams which played in fine weather and en­joyed a good lunch af­ter the 18 holes.

The bowlers had to cope for the day with golf lan­guage rather than bowls lan­guage, so skips be­came team cap­tains for the day and a good ’road’ for a shot be­came a good line.

John O’Brien’s team had a very suc­cess­ful day win­ning the best 18 hole score with a net 12 un­der par for the team. John also won the long­est drive and near­est the pin prizes.

All par­tic­i­pants won prizes how­ever, and a great time was had by all with de­mands for a sim­i­lar com­pe­ti­tion next year.
