Contrary to rumour and expectation the Department of Education, Sport and Culture has just confirmed that, subject to acceptable risk assessments, golf clubs across the island can resume four-ball golf with immediate effect. This is welcome news and was the only logical outcome following the Chief Minister’s recent announcement that up to ten people could congregate, subject to social distancing, in people’s gardens.
Tuesday 19th May 2020
Golfers across the island are eagerly awaiting the resumption of social golf but bureaucracy and perceived congestion problems could hamper your plans to arrange that much awaited friendly four-ball. No, I am not talking about snotty nosed players, but the volume of vehicles arriving at the same time at golf club car parks.

As at noon Wednesday 13th May nothing had been heard from IOM Golf relating to the introduction of phase 2 of the Conditions for Return to Golf for the island golf clubs. Hence your intrepid correspondent decided to contact David Ashford MHK, the Minister for Health and Social Care. He was taking questions live on the Mannin Line on Manx Radio.

On the day Townell took the top prize by one countback point but Tim Callow was crowned champion of the Eclectic League with an amazing 17 under par nett 55.
Monday 16th March 2020
The victor of the fifth round on Saturday was Kevin Lewin (22). Starting with a four pointer birdie he then appeared to lose focus and finished the front nine in 50 shots for a mere 16 points. Then a different picture emerged as Lewin joined the dots and the putts plopped in. With a fantastic four over par back nine Lewin added an unbeatable 25 points to his tally.
Sunday 8th March 2020
The top-spot two-way tie with 40 points was decided over the last three holes and the next three contenders stepped in with 39 points creating another countback conundrum.
Sunday 1st March 2020
Tim Shallcross (20), made an excellent start dropping just two shots over the first five holes. A blob on the 6th left him on 14 points at the turn. With the wind whipping up Shallcross continued to exploit his handicap for 32 overall and distanced himself from the chasing pack by finishing with a three pointer par.
Sunday 16th February 2020
Congratulations go to Rowany’s pro golfer Tom Gandy for his efforts on the Sunshine Tour in South Africa. Not only did he make the cut but up until the 8th hole in the final round at Fancourt he was on the front page of the leaderboard. Unfortunately, a quadruple bogey on the 9th dropped him out of contention. Bravely finishing with back-to-back birdies Gandy clawed his way up to joint 25th place on 11 under par.
Sunday 9th February 2020
In the third round of the Winter League Jake Sansbury (13), in his first concluded round since last July, made the most of the challenging conditions to card 37 winning points. Our club president Sam Skelton (5) came eight scoring 4 ranking points to add to his previous 13. This puts him top of the Winter League on 17 ranking points.
Sunday 2nd February 2020
The eventual winners Paul Eckersley (6) and Martin Derbyshire (14) dovetailed well, particularly on the back nine which they completed in one over par. This enabled them to triumph on countback that went down to the last three holes. Derbyshire dug-in to deliver the dynamic ending with a nett birdie followed by a nett eagle. Playing level par over nine holes, Eckersley’s efforts ended with a three pointer on the 18th.
Monday 27th January 2020
The second round of the winter eclectic was won by Kyle McConnell (14) at Castletown Golf Club on Saturday. His 40 points included two birdies, seven pars and six nett pars but, as in the first round, he double bogeyed the 11th. Our comp: sec: Andi Howland added eight points to his first round 38, this puts him in joint first place alongside Andy Lagden (7) on 46. Lagden added an impressive 12 points to his opening 34.
Sunday 19th January 2020
In his first round this year Laughlin continued his winning ways by adding the second round of the winter stableford league to his collection. His 44 points came after an indifferent start comprised of a double bogey, an N/R and three bogeys in the first seven holes. However, from the 8th onwards Laughlin chipped and putted in a procession of pars.
Tuesday 14th January 2020
Sunday’s congregation for the nine hole Stableford was larger than usual. Jane Holt (21) was obviously not reading the script but was definitely on song. Her winning 24 Stableford points was six better than any of her followers. Earlier in the week Stuart Butler (19) also scored 24 points to win the equally well supported midweek mixed Stableford.
Sunday 5th January 2020
Bob Taylor started the new year in style by landing the first round of the Winter Eclectic.
Sunday 29th December 2019
Former captain Chris Kelly (19) definitely had his eye in at Castletown Golf Club on Saturday. Winning the first round of the winter league with 42 points Kelly birdied both the 3rd, which is the second longest hole, and the 13th which is the shortest. With 21 points on both halves Kelly completed the course in 13 over with two pars on each side.
Sunday 15th December 2019
For the first time since 2001 the Castletown ladies have won the Isle of Man Day League. At a presentation in Peel team captain Steph Gregg received the shield from Lady Diana Gozney.
Sunday 8th December 2019
Whilst some teams displayed the co-ordination of a jelly the winning quartet of Frankie Doherty (8), Guy Pickard (6), Mark Kneale (17) and David Allan (11) only wobbled once. Their 89 points was a show of synchronicity, other than on the 13th, their bogey hole, where they stumbled, scoring only one point.
Tuesday 3rd December 2019
Having attended the finale of the 2009 and 2017 World Tour golf championships Castletown Golf Club member Adrian Copley and his wife Ann were delighted that they were able to do so again this year. They had a wonderful time but sadly their memorable holiday to the Jumeirah Golf Estates in Dubai ended tragically.
Sunday 1st December 2019
The forecasted frost failed to stop Saturday’s sponsored Texas Scramble. 28 teams took part in the Tower Insurance turkey trot which was won with 55.4 by Mark Jones, Alex Townell, Dave Litton and his son Dominic. Their seven under gross par score included five birdies and an eagle on the 3rd.
