COUNTRY MEMBERSHIP LIST NOW CLOSED
Written by Scott Currie   
Tuesday, 16 May 2017 08:11
In the light of preliminary discussions with the new hotel management, Islay Golf Club has now closed its Country Membership list to new applications (those few currently in train will be accepted). This DOES NOT AFFECT existing Country Members. Those who are currently "retained" will be given a once only opportunity to upgrade next season, or they can do so now.

Any new applications will be placed on a waiting list. There will be a cap on the number of Country Members to be agreed with the Hotel, at which point the waiting list will be contacted with up to date information on the likelhood of gaining membership.

Local memberships are still available - for the time being, "local" means if your main place of residence is on Islay or Jura or if you have frequent access to your holiday home here. Other requests will be dealt with on a case by case basis.

Please note that in ALL club competitions, despite any contradictory markings, over or in the burns at the 2nd and 10th holes will be OUT OF BOUNDS.
 
Access to Clubhouse

The following is from Dean Muir. 

Corramore have requested to close off the access between the cottages and the hotel to all non construction traffic.

So from today can all access for members wishing to use the clubhouse be from the rear of the cottages.

All access must be on foot and no cars are permitted to access the clubhouse in this way.

Also whilst leaving the 18th green all golfers will have to walk to the rear of the cottages to return to the shop/car park area.

Thanks for your co-operation.

Ok, I found the wrong article (see below) - however there is a stunning presentation by Bob Harrison to a recent design conference on the

Adfin golf course -  feast your eyes at https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B4qT5ad5fpkaYmFSOHRmYlBidTA/view

 ----------------------

There is an interesting article about stone walls on golf courses which features the Ardfin course on Jura which Bob Harrison has been designing.

Not sure when it was written but from the photos well before any real development got going.

Machrie Golf Links Seeding of the new fairways and approaches has now begun.

Could all golfers please stay off these areas wherever possible.

If you need to retrieve your ball, please take the shortest direct route leaving your trolley or buggy on the original fairways.

All construction areas will remain G.U.R. and relief must be taken.

Your cooperation and assistance with this will ensure the new areas have a higher rate of germination and ultimately establishment for us all to enjoy.

Thank You

Dean Muir Course Manager
