Glenbervie Men Regain County Team Championship in 2017

Having seen a multi-year run of trophy wins come to an end in 2016 (losing in the final to Polmont GC), Glenbervie men’s team were keen to regain the county team championship in 2017. This knockout competition follows an unusual format – two sets of pairs playing foursomes, with the scores from both matches combined to deliver the overall team score / result.

The draw for the 2017 competition saw Glenbervie receive a bye in round 1, but faced up to Dunblane GC in the second round in a match played over Kilsyth GC. The Glenbervie pairs on the night were Graeme Robertson / Mark Hislop and Colin Mundie / Ross Kane, and the team ran out comfortable winners by a margin of 14 up with 12 to play! The semi-final tie was played over Stirling GC against the host club, with the Glenbervie team again featuring the same pairs. This was a much closer match with Glenbervie victorious by a combined margin of 3 up.

The final, played at Bonnybridge GC, saw Glenbervie take on Kilsysth GC. Due to prior holiday arrangements, Mark Hislop was replaced by the in-form Jamie Lynch in the Glenbervie team line-up. Straight from the off, the Kilsyth team looked to be on top form and by the turn each of our pairs were 3 down (i.e. 6 down in the overall team score). However, the Glenbervie boys are nothing if not resilient, and Robertson / Lynch applied constant pressure over the back 9 holes to come back from 3 down to be 3 up after 18 holes. Likewise, Mundie / Kane piled on the pressure and came back to be all square through 17 when the overall team match finished. What a result, and what a way to banish all thoughts from the losing 2016 final.

Congratulations to team manager, Brian Price, and all the team members for bringing this prestigious county team trophy back to Glenbervie. Well done boys!

Glenbervie Expands "School of Golf" Programme with Braes High School

Glenbervie Golf Club are delighted to announce a new working partnership with Braes High School in our "School of Golf" programme.  Professional Steven Rosie and Bobby Rushford met recently with staff from Braes High School to design a programme that will see pupils from the school develop and enhance their golfing ability.  As well as honing their skills on the practice ground, the young people will be able to further focus on their commitment to fitness, health and wellbeing.

Iain Livingstone, headteacher, commented that "the values inherent within golf (such as ambition, respect and integrity), chime with those of Braes High School, and we look forward to seeing how the young golfers progress in the coming weeks".  From their experience of working with Bobby, the pupils also hope to gain an understanding of the multiple career opportunities within the golf industry and associated businesses.

This new programme with Braes High School follows on from the similar relationship already in place with Larbert High School.   Steven, Bobby and all the staff at Glenbervie look forward to welcoming the Braes High School pupils to our club.

Glenbervie Climbs 20 Places in Golf World "Top 100 Scottish Courses"

After featuring in the Golf World magazine "Top 100 Scottish Courses" list for the first time in 2015, Glenbervie has risen 20 places to number 74 in the just released list for 2017.   As one would expect, the magazine biennial list is dominated by links courses, meaning that Glenbervie is ranked among the very top "parkland" courses in the country.  The Golf World judging panel verdict on Glenbervie including the following: "Entered [the list] in 2015 and keeps getting better with improved greens.  Interesting and challenging, the clever 9th leads the terrific holes."

All members, and especially staff, of Glenbervie should take great pride in this public recognition of the quality of our golf club.

New Coaching Qualification For Glenbervie Pro Bobby Rushford

Congratulations are in order to Glenbervie's assistant professional Bobby Rushford who has just successully completed the PGA Level 3 Coaching qualification.  This is a significant industry-based qualification, reinforcing what many Glenbervie members already know and appreciate - how good Bobby is as a golf coach. 

Very well done Bobby.

Glenbervie Junior Members Excelling On and Off The Course

Glenbervie junior members Alistair Croall and Kai Muir are presently coached by our very own PGA Bobby Rushford.   But that is not the only connection the boys have in sport.  Both lads play football for local football team, Syngenta Juveniles 2004 (under 13’s).  As a reflection of what organised sport can do to develop and nurture success stories in youngsters, the club are pleased to announce that the boys team have reached the Scottish F.A. Cup Final for their age group.  This follows nine gruelling rounds with an initial national draw that included 290 teams.  The final takes place on Sunday 21st May at Airdrie's Excelsior Stadium, and the boys and their team would welcome support from any club members who would like to attend.  (The grandson of Glenbervie member John Blackley, "not a bad player in his day" as many members will recall ..., also plays in the same team).

Ali and Kai's dads, club members Ian Croall and David Muir, are rightly proud of the boys achievements so far, but they are also keen to acknowledge the wider impact on the boys of organised sports coaching generally. This includes the good work carried out by Bobby under Glenbervie's junior golfing programme, where the pupils not only learn how to swing a golf club, but also learn discipline and behavioral skills, along with health and fitness.

Good luck to the boys not only in the forthcoming football final, but also in all of their future sporting and life endeavors.   For more information on Glenbervie's junior golfing coaching programme, please contact any of the club professional staff in the pro-shop.

LATEST UPDATE - "COACH, PLAY AND ENJOY GOLF" PROGRAMME TO COMMENCE IN 2nd HALF OF MARCH 2017

The Coach, Play and Enjoy Golf programme will soon be commencing.   Places are still available, however, and any parties interested in joining the programme should contact Steven or his staff as soon as possible. 

Do you, or anyone you know, want to take up golf (or give golf a try)?

Many of you may know people who want to try golf or who have previously tried to start and given up because of ... how difficult the game is, ... how complex the rules are, ... how unwelcoming clubs and existing players can appear to be to beginners?

Well, Glenbervie Golf Club has the programme for you or them! A programme that will introduce the great game of golf in a way that will ensure enjoyment – and at the end of the day, for the large majority of golfers, that is what the game is all about.

The programme will be centered around weekly coaching sessions, plus access to our John Panton Academy course, and will quickly give participants the necessary skills and confidence to be able to play the Academy course on their own or with fellow learners. The programme will run from around the end of April until the end of October. What's different about this programme is its emphasis on the social and fun elements of learning golf within a small group.

What is the content and cost of the Glenbervie "Coach, Play and Enjoy" Golf Programme?

The cost of the programme is £360, with various payment options available. Included in this cost are:

  • A minimum of 26 weekly coaching sessions with a PGA Professional in a group format (value £260) (There will be the option to select mid-week or weekend classes)
  • Loan Equipment if required 
  • Glenbervie Academy Course access for the duration on the programme (value £150)
  • 3 single round vouchers for the championship course at Glenbervie (value £160)
  • Glenbervie clubhouse membership for the duration of the programme (value £65)

I'm sure all would agree that the programme is great value for money and will provide the perfect opportunity for anyone wishing to take up the game of golf. (Or at least give golf a good try).   If you, or anyone in your family, friends, work collegues or neighbours, fall into this category, then they should really consider signing up for this programme.

Trackman 4 Golf Analysis Arrives at Glenbervie

Steven Rosie Trackman Logos 

As part of his ongoing commitment to providing the Glenbervie membership with the very best teaching and coaching service, Steven Rosie has recently taken delivery of a brand new Trackman 4 radar unit. Trackman is the industry leader in measurement of ball flight and club parameters and the launch of the 4th generation unit represents a further leap in accuracy and data provision. Many of the top 50 golfers in the world rankings, renowned coaches and manufacturers, all chose Trackman as their preferred supplier.

From a coaching perspective Trackman data can be used to provide the player with feedback which is not usually available to them, and when combined with critical coaching skills, can really accelerate learning and refinement of golf skills. The feedback from ball and club tracking can be provided across all areas of the game with the new Trackman 4 accurately measuring parameters from a 320 yard drive through to a 6 inch putt.   The new unit will also take the fitting service that Steven and his staff provide to a higher level of accuracy with the provided ball flight data easily allowing fine tuning of equipment specifications to ensure that the optimum club specification is in your hands.

If you wish to view a sample of what a coaching session using Trackman looks like and get an idea of the feedback it provides, please click on the link below to view a short video. As well as providing a better service, Steven will include the Trackman unit within coaching sessions at no extra charge, thereby providing even better value.  Please contact the Proshop if you wish to book a session.
