A Message from the President

It gives me great pleasure in introducing the 20th edi on of the Ayrshire Golf Associa on Yearbook.

I can honestly say my first year as President has been extremely enjoyable, a ending all the tournaments, championships, and team matches as well as the West of Scotland County prizegivings. All the clubs in Ayrshire that hosted events in 2022 were very welcoming and suppor ve of the events. Each event was fantas c in its own way, and I’d like to take this opportunity to say a massive thank you to these clubs. I am very proud to be involved in such a great organisa on as President.

There were various highlights throughout the year both individually and on a team basis, notably Steven McEwan (Caprington) and Harvey Broadfoot (Troon Welbeck) on the individual front.

Steven would win three Doc Thom coun ng events on his way to the Order of Merit tle. This achievement was added to when Steven posted the lowest score of the day at Ravenspark (69) to help his home club, Caprington, li the Ayrshire Club Championship (R.L. Crawford Trophy) alongside Marc Smith and Robbie McFarlane.

In the Junior sec on Harvey Broadfoot maintained a stronghold over the county tles, winning both the Strokeplay and Matchplay championships for a second consecu ve year. All four of the major county championship trophies will be engraved this year with new names upon them.

The inaugural Seniors Matchplay event was a great success, with Robbie Fulker (Kilmarnock Barassie) and Alistair Belford (Prestwick St Nicholas) compe ng for the new Ian Harvey Trophy. The match was very kindly refereed by Ayrshire Honorary President Ian Harvey himself. This year’s Championship would go to Alistair with a 2 & 1 victory.

In the team events, Irvine GC remained the top scratch team in Ayrshire a er retaining their tle from 2021 in Scratch division 1 and Moorpark GC would be the strongest team in the handicap league and knock out event winning both tles.

Na onally, Ayrshire saw our Men’s Area Team successfully progress out the group stages to reach a Semi­finals e at Powfoot GC against Perth and Kinross. Unfortunately, the gents would be knocked out at this stage, but it should s ll be regarded as a successful season overall.

On the Interna onal front, Royal Troon members Paul Moultrie & Robert Jenkins helped the Scotland Womans’ and Mens’ Senior team to victory in the inaugural Combined Senior Home Interna onals matches, held at Pyle & Kenfig GC in Wales.

As we look ahead to 2023, it is full of excitement and posi vity a er our member clubs voted to include all golfers as part of the Ayrshire Golf Associa on.

There are 6 compe ons to start the Lady sec on off and the hope that this will grow from strength to strength. The hope is that these compe ons will be well supported and that we can develop this sec on the way other events and sec ons have in the past.

As the interclub events gain more and more interest, I would encourage all Ayrshire members and clubs to get involved. These compe ons are posi ve for the clubs and allow the members of various clubs to become friends and compete against each other.

Finally, I would like to give a sincere thank you to all the amazing courses, clubs and hardworking execu ve and club commi ees who help to facilitate and support our brilliant county.

Ayrshire Golf Associa on will con nue do all we can to support all golfers within Ayrshire.

I wish you all a very happy and successful 2023 golfing season.

2023 Review of the Year


The coaching scheme returned to normality in 2022 a er COVID, under the direc on of Sandy Walker, to enhance squad development for the Ayrshire County teams.

Prestwick golf club con nued to provide excep onal support in 2022 for the coaching scheme, allowing use of their facili es throughout the programme.

Club coaching grants, to support individual coaching schemes within member clubs, were again available to develop ‘in house’ coaching schemes for member clubs and will be in place again in 2023.

Richard Gordon (Ayr Belleisle) and David Fleming (Prestwick), and fitness instructor Brian Milligan, enthusias cally con nue to deliver and develop the coaching scheme along with The Associa on each year.

New execu ve members Andy Reid & Paul Kennedy will take over the coaching por olio in 2023, with some further enhancement to the coaching programme already planned, in conjunc on with Sco sh Golf, and inten ons to further enhance the coaching programme for younger golfers, aided by generous dona ons, from the winding up of the Strathclyde commi ee of Fields in Trust, and an individual member of one of Ayrshire’s member clubs.

Youth Team

Robert Wilson and Sandy Walker managed the youth team again in 2022, and Robert will con nue in his role in 2023, assisted by Barry O’Rourke and William Fleming.

In the West of Scotland Inter County League, the first match of the season, at home to S rlingshire at Rowallan Castle, resulted in a 7.5­0.5 win. Defeat to Lanarkshire by 5.5­2.5 at Strathaven in the second match was followed by a 5­3 win away to Renfrewshire at Erskine, but a 1.5 – 6.5 defeat at home to Dumbartonshire at Prestwick St Cuthbert in the penul mate fixture, and a 6­2 defeat to Glasgow in the final match of the series at Haggs Castle saw the Ayrshire team finish in fi h place in the league, behind the 2023 winners from Lanarkshire.

TEAM FOR THE MATCH Vs South of Scotland

Boys Team

Sandy Walker led the boy’s team in 2022, assisted by Sco Gilchrist and Liz Keohone, and in 2023 responsibility for the boy’s team will pass to Paul Kennedy and Andy Reid.

Ayrshire’s bid to retain the Sco sh Boys’ Area Team Championship was washed out at an extremely wet Gleddoch golf course in September. The Ayrshire team of Harvey Broadfoot, Connor Wills, Jack Broadfoot and Ryan Kennedy lay second a er the morning foursomes, but in the a ernoon singles that draw saw the Ayrshire players out in the worst weather of the day, the torren al a ernoon rain taking its toll and ul mately leaving Ayrshire in eighth place overall on 384, 20 shots behind the winners from the North east area.

In the West of Scotland league, Ayrshire’s bid to regain the boys’ league tle fell short, with the team finishing in second place overall, behind the winners from Lanarkshire.

S rlingshire dropped out of the league in 2022, leaving the five other area associa ons to contest the tle. Ayrshire opened with a 5­3 home win over Renfrewshire at Turnberry but a crucial 5­3 defeat to Lanarkshire at Easter Moffat dented Ayrshire’s tle hopes. A 6.5­1.5 home win over Dumbartonshire at Ayr Seafield in the penul mate fixture revived Ayrshire’s hopes, though ul mately defeat by 4.5­3.5 against Glasgow in their final fixture at Sandyhills ended any tle hopes.

County A Team

John Rushbury, assisted by Andrew Gilligan, Steven Wallace, and Barry O’Rourke administered the A team in 2022. In 2023 there will be changes in the administra on of the A team, with John Rushbury standing down as team manager a er several years in post, as he enters his second year as manager of the Scotland Men’s Team. In 2023 Andrew Gilligan will manage the team and will be assisted by John Shanks.

The Sco sh Area Team Championships returned to its original format in 2022, with qualifying sec on matches being played throughout the season, culmina ng in the finals weekend in Early September at Powfoot, involving the four qualifying sec on winners.

Ayrshire opened their qualifying campaign with a 6­3 win over South of Scotland at Royal Troon, winning the morning foursomes 3­0 and sharing the a ernoon singles 3­3. The second fixture, away to Angus at Downfield, resulted in a 7­2 defeat, Ayrshire losing the foursomes 3­0 and the singles 42. The final fixture of the qualifying sec on was a home match against Dumbartonshire at Kilmarnock Barassie, where a 5­4 win, coupled with a draw in the other sec onal fixture, saw Ayrshire win the qualifying sec on and progressing to the semi­finals.


In the semi­finals at Powfoot, Ayrshire were drawn to play Perth & Kinross. The team of Sco Brown, Craig Telfer, John Shanks, Steven McEwan, Michael Smyth and Blair Morton lost out at the semi­final stage, losing the morning foursomes 3­0 and falling just short a er taking the a ernoon singles 3.52.5 for a 5.5­3.5 defeat overall. In the final Perth & Kinross lost to the 2022 winners from the North East area.

In the Seniors Area team Championship at Monifieth Links in September, the team of Paul Moultrie, Robert Jenkins, Alistair Belford, Paul Ferguson, Stevie McKnight and Stuart Miller recorded a team total of 378 to finish in eighth place behind the winners from Lanarkshire.

In the West of Scotland league Ayrshire finished as runners up to Renfrewshire, despite opening with a 5­3 defeat against S rlingshire at Dunblane New. The opening defeat was followed by a 6.5­1.5 home win over Lanarkshire at Troon Lochgreen and a 4.5­3.5 defeat at home to Renfrewshire at Royal Troon, followed by successive wins, by 4.5­3.5 away to Dumbartonshire at Cardross, and at home by 5.5­2.5 against Glasgow at Western Gailes.


1n 2022 Barry O’Rourke, along with Jimmy McGhee, oversaw the various Ayrshire County tournaments, which enjoyed a good level of entries.

During the year, nominated Ayrshire Execu ve members take on the task of the ongoing administra on of extended compe ons, including the Champion of Champions, Fourball, Handicap League Championship, Scratch Leagues, President’s Pu er and Gary Bryden Memorial Salver compe ons, to ensure their smooth and successful conclusion.

With changes made to the cons tu on at the 2022 AGM, and in consulta on with women’s representa ves of member clubs, The Associa on are developing a programme of addi onal compe ons for woman members of member clubs during 2023. Ini al compe ons being introduced in the coming season include a woman’s Champion of Champions event, a Mixed Greensomes Knockout compe on, a woman’s handicap league and woman’s strokeplay and matchplay championships, with further events likely to be developed in future years.

Course Ra ng

Mike Hazlewood, assisted by Kirk Ramsay, Ricky Magee and John Rutherford implemented the course ra ng programme in Ayrshire in 2022 and Mike and Kirk will con nue to oversee this in 2023. The Ayrshire course ra ng team is at the forefront of the development and delivery of course ra ng in Scotland and is one of the strongest ra ng teams in the country, with several new raters being recruite to the Ayrshire team in 2022, to assist in an extensive programme of re­ra ng of Ayrshire courses in 2023.

The Ayrshire Junior Golf League

Sandy Walker served as the AJGL representa ve on the county Execu ve in 2022, with Andy Reid and Paul Kennedy jointly taking over the role in 2023.

Membership and Administra on

The membership of The Associa on remains healthy with 65 member clubs, represen ng over 13,000 Ayrshire golfers.

At the 2022 AGM of The Associa on member clubs approved changes to the cons tu on to develop the Ayrshire Golf Associa on into a body representa ve of members of all genders within member clubs, which has both brought The Associa on into line with the same model as the na onal governing body, Sco sh Golf, and gives the opportunity to develop playing and representa ve opportuni es of players from member clubs, regardless of gender.

Following the AGM decision, Belleisle Ladies GC became the first club with an exclusively woman’s membership to join The Ayrshire Golf Associa on.

The 2023 AGM saw several changes to the Execu ve commi ee membership, with several stepping down, including Steven Wallace, Sandy Walker and Ross Caddis. The most notable re ree at the 2022 AGM was past president Ricky Magee who served in many posts within The Associa on since joining The Execu ve in the early 1990’s, culmina ng in his term of presidency from 2006 to 2008.

New execu ve members recruited for 2023 include Kirk Ramsay (Redburn), Andrew Reid (Irvine), Paul Kennedy (Irvine), William Fleming (Ballochmyle), John Shanks (Irvine) and Debbie Wa (Belleisle Ladies).

In 2022 The execu ve agreed to iden fy a preferred charity for the dura on of each President’s term of office, and the charity selected for 2023 was Whiteleys Retreat, a local charity that provides therapeu c short breaks for children, young people and their families with cancer and other life altering illnesses in the UK, and it is intended collect dona ons for the charity at various AGA events throughout the year.

In Memorium

As we look back over 2023 we remember friends and golfing colleagues who are no longer with us.

former Ayrshire golf champion Murray Rae passed away on the 29th of August 2022, at the age of 83.

A na ve of Irvine, Murray played out of the Irvine Ravenspark club when he won the three major county tles in Ayrshire. His first victory was in the 1973 Ayrshire Matchplay Championship, followed the next year by success in the Ayrshire Strokeplay Championship, and in 1980 he added the Champion of Champions tle when he beat defending champion Allan Thomson of Ayr Belleisle in the final at Royal Troon.

Murray later became a member of the Irvine Golf Club.

Murray was a regular member of the Ayrshire golf team and also served as team manager for the county side for several years in the early 1990's.

Though ill health in recent years prevented Murray circula ng amongst the golfing fraternity in the county to any great extent, his name remained very respected in the county and beyond as an accomplished golfer and a thoroughly decent individual.

Blair Morton levelled the match with a birdie at the eleventh and also took the twel h hole to lead in the match for the first me, but the match was squared again when Shaun Hedger won the short fourteenth with a par three.

A concession at the sixteenth, a er Blair Morton found water from the tee, saw Shaun Hedger take a one hole lead to the penul mate hole, but Blair Morton produced a great tee shot to set up a winning birdie two and the match went to the final hole all square.

The first extra hole was halved in birdie fours, and another birdie four at the 20th hole was enough for Shaun Hedger to win the hole and the Ayrshire Matchplay tle for 2022.

The event involved the players who returned the eig ht best scratch scores in the Ayrshire Seniors Championship in early July and culminated in the final, played on the same evening as the Champion of Champions Trophy final.

Belford and Fulker matched each other over the opening five holes before Alistair took the lead for the first me with a par three at the fi h hole. A birdie four at the sixth extended Alistair's lead to two holes but pars at the seventh and ninth holes from Robbie Fulker was sufficient for him to square the match at the turn.

Once again Alistair took the lead with a par four at the eleventh, only for Robbie to level the match at the twel h with a birdie three.

Robbie struggled with his pu er throughout the match, par cularly in the back nine, as Alistair took the lead at the fourteenth with a winning par three, and a par at the sixteenth extended Alistair’s lead to two holes. A half at the penul mate hole was enough to give Alistair Belford the match and the Ayrshire Senior matchplay tle.

In the semi­finals Belford beat George Robertson (Irvine) by 3&2 and Fulker beat David Brown (Irvine Ravenspark) by 4&3.

In the quarter finals Belford beat Jim Mackinson (Irvine) by 5&4, Robertson beat Brian Fisher (Largs) by 5&4, Brown had a walkover against Steven McCreadie (Ayr Belleisle), and Fulker beat Sco Moore (Irvine) by 1 hole.

Both brothers produced some excellent golf in perfect condi ons over the Prestwick links in the final, with a combined be er ball score of three under par for the seventeen holes played.

The younger brother, 15 year old Jack, took the lead at the fourth with a winning birdie three, but the defending champion squared the match at the fourth before winning the eighth hole to take a slender lead as the players turned for home.

Jack took the tenth to square the match and by the thirteenth hole, which proved to be pivotal, the players remained ed. A par four by Jack at the thirteenth looked likely to secure another half, but Harvey holed an excellent put for a winning birdie three to take a single hole lead again, which he extended to two holes by winning the fi eenth.

At the sixteenth Jack holed a brave par pu to keep the game alive, with Harvey going to the penul mate hole dormie two, and a good recovery from the back of the green at the seventeenth for a par, coupled with Jack’s missed birdie pu was enough for Harvey to close out the final with a 2&1 victory

In the semi­finals Harvey Broadfoot beat Jamie Hay (Ayr Belleisle) by 5&4 and Jack Broadfoot beat Jack Ramsay (Kilmarnock Barassie) by 1 hole.

In the quarter finals, Harvey Broadfoot beat Finlay Wa (West Kilbride) by 3&2, Jamie Hay beat Connor Wills (Royal Troon) by 1 hole, Jack Broadfoot beat Oliver Long (Kilmarnock Barassie) by 4&2, and Jack Ramsay beat Drew Cleaver (Ayr Belleisle) by 8&6.


Blair Morton (Royal Troon) won the 2022 Ayrshire Champion of Champions Trophy with a single hole victory in the final, over his home course at Royal Troon, on Friday the 12th of August.

The final was between two Royal Troon members, with Blair's good friend Keith Hamilton (Ayr Belleisle), the beaten finalist, also being a member of the host club.

Blair took the lead with a par three at the fi h hole, but was pegged back at the sixth before restoring his lead at the eight, The Postage Stamp, with a par three, and extending his lead to two at the turn a er winning the ninth hole too.

Despite the best efforts of both players Blair’s two hole advantage remained with two holes to play. Keith ensured the match would go to the eighteenth hole, with a winning birdie two at the seventeenth, and despite some worries at the last when a search was required for his ball, Blair Morton did enough to half the hole and take the tle with a single hole victory.

A total of 44 began the quest for the 2022 tle. In the semi­finals, Morton beat Steven Stamper (Turnberry) by 3&2 whilst Hamilton beat Aidan Long (Prestwick Centre) by 3&1.
