CONGRATULATIONS

Andra Kirkaldy

Cup Winners


Congratulations to the Windyhill Past Captains Team of Michael McKeown, Ian Thomson, Maurice Shields, Frank Geary, Roy McMurray [Team Convenor], Raymond Lowe, John Britton, Tom Rae and Scott Cochrane, winners of the 2017 Andra Kirkaldy Cup.

The postponed final against Hilton Park G C was played today at Milngavie G C, with Windyhill winning all four matches.

This is the fifth time a Windyhill Team has won this trophy, with previous teams being victorious in 1987, 1990, 1993 and 2001.

Andra Kirkaldy Cup

The Andra Kirkaldy Cup is played between teams of Past Captains of golf clubs which participate in the various competitions organised by the Donald Cameron League.

Windyhill Teams have won the Andra Kirkaldy Cup in 1987, 1990, 1993, 2001 and now 2017.

This particular trophy has been contested on an annual basis since 1985 and commemorates the achievements of Andrew Kirkaldy, a Fife golfer who played in 23 Open Championships between 1879 and 1910.

Andrew came second in the Open on three occasions and featured in the top-10 fourteen times.

Defibrillator


Through the generosity of Windyhill members, and with the support of the Hodgkinson Trust, a defibrillator has now been installed in the clubhouse.

It is located at the end of the main corridor, close to the main door of the clubhouse.

This medical device is designed to be used in conjunction with the application of CPR to an individual who has collapsed and is not breathing. There is no need for any medical training to be able to use the defibrillator as clear instructions on what to do are provided by a built in voice recording.

Some members may be familiar with its use through health and safety training they may have received at their place of work. Several of the Executive Board attended a training course on the defibrillator run by the Scottish Ambulance Service.

While it is hoped that there may never be any occasion to use the defibrillator, its presence at the club does provide some reassurance.

New Mobile Website


Windyhill has upgraded its mobile website to a more responsive version which may suit those members who use their mobile phones to find out what is going on around the club. This new version has a much better layout and presents the various pages on the website in a manner which is much easier to scroll through and read. Members may have to delete the previous version of the website to view the new one.
Try it out.

Practice Nets


The two Practice Nets which the club purchased with the assistance of the National Lottery Awards for All Scheme have now been put in place by the hard work of Windyhill's green keeping team.

The next part of the project is to place covered bays at the other end of the practice area.
