Welcome to the Eriskay Golf Club website!
A Particular Welcome to Visitors!
This is a Golf Club with a difference! To appreciate just how different, you should probably start with the "History of the Club" page...... And, if after reading that you still would like to be considered for Membership, here's where to find more information.
July Medal - Wednesday 16 July 2014
The July Medal is a "book your own teetime with a partner and play" competition, so no formal entry is required. Turn up on the day and enjoy!
The Green Jacket - 26 July 2014
A perennial favourite with our Members, the Green jacket competition will take palce at Tain Golf Course on 26 July 2014. Generously sponsored by Skye Development, this is a popular competition so get your name down now by clicking here or by phoning Willie Rusk at 01463 794433 or 07801 288301.
Dragon's Tooth Adult Open
We are always happpy to support fellow Clubs, particularly where their course is so unique as the Dragon's Tooth course at Ballachulish - fabulous views to be had - gratifying if your round is not going so well......
So, if you don't fancy our own Green Jacket competition - or maybe you are not an Eriskay Member and therefore cannot play in our competitions, then you might be interested in a wee trip to Ballachulish for the Dragon's Tooth Open on 26 July 2014. Click here for details.
We are delighted to announce that your Hon Secretary has performed a minor miracle by booking, not one but two, superb venues for the 2 round Club Championship later this season. The first round will be played at the excellent Edzell Course - a particular favourite for many golfers. And the second round, played the following day, will be on an Open Qualifying Course - Downfield Golf Course (Dundee). This really is a superb opportunity to play both courses - with the course fees included in your annual subscription! The golf bargain of the year! So - get the dates in your diary NOW - 4 and 5 September 2014.
And.....the Club Championship Sponsor is........
We have yet another exciting announcement to make in connection with the aforementioned Club Championships. Our newest member - John Russell of M&J Joinery, has very generously agreed to sponsor the entire Club Championship - well done that man! A huge thanks. Members should shortly see somewhere on this site some information about the range of joinery services which M&J Joinery can offer - watch out for this soon!
New Members Welcome (well, only a few.....!)
We are very pleased to announce that this year we will be opening up Membership to a small number of new Members, which will include Lady Members. As with last year, we want to "walk before we run" so will again keep our Membership numbers relatively low this year, while we make sure our systems operate satisfactorily. In particular, we will be extending our Handicapping system to include Ladies - we would have done this last year, when the Club was first formally constituted, but time ran away with us with all the new things we had to complete in our first year of full operation - apologies Ladies!
Our annual subscription remains unchanged again this year, at £80 for the full season. (Yes - that is indeed Eighty Pounds Sterling! What other Golf Club has fees so low?
We have calculated - very roughly - that each of our Members gets in excess of £500-worth of golf value for their £80 subscription. And that excludes the cash prizes we award for every one of our competitions, these only made possible by the huge generosity of our Sponsors.
Do you know of any other golf club offering such a bargain deal? I don't think so.....! Go to our Club Membership page for more details or speak or email to Willie Rusk (01463 794433) today to discuss membership. But you need to do it quickly....places are limited....!
Club Competitions Sponsorship
We are delighted to advise that we already have 5 generous sponsors in place, each having agreed to sponsor an individual Club Competition. But we need more sponsors please! It need not cost a huge amount to sponsor a Competition. If you might be able to sponsor one, or if you know of a Company or Business which might be interested in doing so, please speak to Willie Rusk.
Your website editor is sincerely apologetic that he has done almost nowt with the numerous photos taken at Club competitions throughout last season. This is largely to do with lack of time but I will get them sorted some day!
Meantime, if any of you have photos in any way connected with the Club, please email me to let me know (but do not attach them to the message at that stage). I can deal with any type of photo, from digital ones, to old-fashioned prints, even slides and the condition does not need to be all that good - I can usually improve them.
Members' Pages - Login Password
Members can get access to additional pages if they login correctly. Use the "Login" tab at the top left of this page, choose "Member" from the dropdown menu, and enter your password - simple as that. You do of course need a password to be able to do that - send me an email and I shall email you back your password.
