Taynuilt Golf Club is a challenging 9-hole parkland course which was founded in 1987. The Course is surrounded by majestic scenery located close to the base of Ben Cruachan and with stunning views up Loch Etive. The village of Taynuilt is situated on the A85, approximately a 2 hour drive from Glasgow and 12 miles from Oban, "The Gateway to the Isles". see location map
Great to see so many people taking advantage of the good weather!

The photo shows the first players on the course on Tuesday, where the ladies took part in the first round of the Altnacree Trophy. Moira smashed it with a score of 66, but her’s wasn’t the only handicap to fall. Pippa again took first place in the 9-hole competition.

Today sees the start of the 2016 season, with the ‘Two Clubs and a Putter’ competition. For some, this can be a real dilemma to choose which clubs to discard, but there are other ladies who rarely use any more than this normally (we know who you are!)!
The afternoon finishes with a meal and a chat, providing everyone an opportunity to discuss the season ahead.
