We are guaranteed a new Crow Wood Club Champion, so good luck everyone!

Cancer Research UK
I am delighted to report, that the family charity fun day held on August 27th was a great success, raising close to £3,200 for Cancer Research UK.
A big thanks to everyone at Crow Wood who helped out and supported what we hope will become a regular event.

A delighted Lance Johnson & John Condron receive the Crow Wood Quaich at the 2015 Prizegiving, from Watson Cuthbert.
With one match to play (Bishopbriggs v Cawder), Crow Wood share the lead with Bishopbriggs in the Kelvin Friendship League. However, even if Bishopbriggs lose, they still win the league due to better head to head results over Crow Wood.(a win and a draw), so we are guaranteed 2nd place for 2016.
The consolation is that Crow Wood hold the annual closing dinner on November 10th, which is always a hugely enjoyable social event.

Lanarkshire Men became Scottish Inter Area Champions for the first time since 1998 on September 4th.
They beat Lothians 5-4 in a nailbiting final with the outcome only decided by the final putt of stalwart Steven Rennie (Drumpellier). In the earlier rounds they beat Fife and then North East in the semi-final.
The winning players were: Craig Ross (Kirkhill), Ed Wood (Crow Wood), Steven Rennie (Drumpellier), Gordon Yates (Colville Park), Kenny Gallacher (East Kilbride), and Dominic Dougan of Airdrie.
