Kirkhill bowlers take to golf greens
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.
