In May 2018, The R&A launched the women in golf charter, with the aim to increase women and girls participation and membership in golf, encourage more families to enjoy golf as a leisure activity and encourage more opportunities for women to work in the golf industry.The women in Golf Charter specifically aims to:
• Strengthen the focus on gender balance and provide a united position for the golf industry
• Commit national federations and organisations to support measures targeted at increasing participation of women, girls and families in golf
• Call upon signatories to take positive action to support the recruitment, retention and progression of women working at all levels of the sport
• Set individual targets for national associations for participation and membership and reporting progress annually
• Develop an inclusive environment for women and girls within golf.
Fraserburgh golf club is proud to have signed the charter as part of the clubs aim to grow female and family membership and overall membership numbers. Over the next two months the committee will develop a plan and agree our commitments which will set out a number of actions. This update is to inform our members of the commitment and keep you updated on our progress. If you would like to get involved in supporting this initiative then please get in touch with the office. We look forward to updating you on our progress over the next couple of months where we can hopefully nurture the next Hannah Green pictured below who has links to Fraserburgh and is a female major Champion.
Good progress in the last week or so. Completed weed control on fairways with a last total spray of herbicide for the year.
All greens have had aeration work and weaker ones have been overseeded. Topdressing has been applied once on main greens and twice on the Rosehill.
Autumn winter feeding will continue on all greens, granule fertiliser /soil conditioner will be applied as necessary. Top dressing will continue as often as possible to help keep playing surfaces firm and to dilute thatch.
Thinning of rough areas is on going and good progress on this front. Moles total now 385. Sclaffing fairways and tees on both courses will be on going till end of October , volunteers will be asked a couple of more times. Cutting of all areas is still on going
Future work we would like to try and do includes: Aeration of tees and fairways, cut collect thicker areas of rough to thin down, rebuild more bunkers, patch rabbit scrapes, topdress tees.
Mats in use from fairways,tees and semi rough November 1st. Irrigation to the 15th green needs to be fixed as becoming an issue (estimated costs 1-2k).
Screening of our own dune sand and topdressing fairways would/could be achievable, this would help smooth and firm fairways giving much better playing surface for future. Nearing the end of my 3rd season and steady progress.
Please find attached the results from yesterdays Gents open in very testing conditions. A special word of thanks to all the visiting players, many of whom playing for the first time shared many positive comments on the condition of the course.
A big congratulations to Fraserburgh Member David Henderson for taking the Jimmy Gibb tankard with a very hard fought and impressive 78 gross.
Golfmates is a successful Golf Channel run by Liam Harrison which has in the region of 80k followers on YouTube and over 30k social media followers in the UK alone.
The day saw the Golfmates channel film various parts of the course for their Hidden Gems series. It will also allowed the Scottish golfmates followers to come and meet up and play the 7th Oldest course in the world.
Please feel free to take a look at the Golfmates twitter and youtube Channel as well as the clubs newly created Youtube channel and Website.
Fraserburgh Golf Club breaks new ground with the help of ticmic360 and the “voice of golf” Sky Sports Ewen Murray
We are delighted to announce an exciting new partnership
with local company ticmic360, specialists in creating 360 virtual tours online.
The initiative, headed up by Committee Member Eddie McDonald,
has created with Nigel Hancock from ticmic360 a complete virtual tour of
Fraserburgh’s clubhouse and the historic James Braid inspired Corbiehill course
which is now available on the Clubs website. This project has been completed
using cutting-edge technology and will surely be one of the first of its kind in
the world of golf.
The innovative project allows future visitors, and members
alike, to virtually walk the course, wherever they are in the world, the
experience greatly enhanced by drone flyovers of all 18 holes.
As a very special touch Eddie with blessing from the
Committee commissioned and enlisted the help of renowned Sky Sports commentator
and former professional, Ewen Murray to add his unmistakable voice to provide a
uniquely informed take on each of the course’s 18 holes.
This project is the most important single piece of work the
club has undertaken in many years and will hopefully prove invaluable to the
club moving forwards as we continue our efforts to increase our exposure both
at home and abroad.
As digital technology continues to evolve, it is important
for golf clubs to do the same and we are truly delighted to have Ewen Murray
provide that extra bit of value to the work we are doing with ticmic360 to
create a virtual tour of our facilities.
A truly special word of thanks must go to both Nigel Hancock
of ticmic360 and Ewen Murray for their contribution in making this come to
Eddie has been working on this for some time and should be
rightly proud of his efforts and the club wishes to congratulate him and his
The virtual tour and all of Ewen’s flyover commentary and
videos both as a collective and individually are also now available on the
Clubs official YouTube Channel at the following link and we would urge members
and visitors alike to take the timeout to experience the virtual tour and the
FRASERBURGH, Aberdeenshire, Scotland -- Golfers driving by Fraserburgh Golf Club probably aren't tempted to stop. The first and 18th holes of the Corbie Hill Course across the street from the modest two-story clubhouse look mostly non-descript. Hidden away from view, however, is one of Scotland's most underrated links, a James Braid classic. Put Fraserburgh, the seventh oldest club in the world, dating to 1777, on your next golf tour of the Highlands. The dunes on the other side of Corbie Hill frame a unique collection of holes. The par 4 second climbs up the hill to review stunning views of Fraserburgh Bay and the town. The 331-yard, par-4 third plays downhill from this elevated perch, but the payback comes swiftly at the next, a 328-yarder. The par 3s on the front nine are spectacular, the fifth hidden by a dune hump and the treacherous seventh surrounded by deep bunkers. The highest dunes pinch the par-5 15th hole and par-4 16th hole, delivering a fine climax to a rewarding round of golf that costs much less than the other bucket-list links of the region."
