Before checking the draw for the Summer Meeting, we feel the following explanation is required. Over 120 members applied but we could only accommodate 93 (even with an extended 30 minutes from Troon Portland). 

As this Meeting is the Championship Qualifier, the draw must be done in handicap order and unfortunately some members have had to be balloted out, although there is a waiting list and there will undoubtedly be a number of call offs nearer the time. 

 We understand the disappointment for some, especially in light of the Spring Meeting being cancelled, but names of those balloted out will be recorded so that they will not miss out again for the next few Spring and Autumn Meetings. 

 For future Summer Meetings at least, we will now apply for an extension to the tee times in an attempt to avoid this situation. 

 Hopefully you understand our position, but please get in touch by email if you have any comments to make, or to make suggestions for discussion at the next AGM in November. 

 Fingers crossed for good weather !! 

Please note the following re catering at Troon for the West Vets Summer Meeting on Wednesday 16th May : Hot rolls, scones, tea and coffee will be available from 9.00am. 

Light meals will be available from 11.00am until 5.00pm. Thereafter tea, coffee, sandwiches and cakes will be available for the later players until 6.00pm when the kitchen closes
