We also enter 2 teams in our Rotary District competition. This involves matches on a knock out basis aganst other Rotary Clubs from the west of Scotland.

Matches are also arranged from time to time with neighbouring Clubs from Girvan and Newton Stewart and we have also hosted a group of Canadian Rotarian golfers.
