Can you pass on our thanks to Liz, Hazel, Flora and Greg who served us so well on Saturday evening.  We had a great wee night - John loved it, food was great, family had a ball and no clearing up at our house afterwards! Thanks soooo much - Carole Lyons

I would like to say we had a great night on Saturday ,for my son Alastair’s 30th Birthday Party. Liz ,Rachael and their team were superb in looking after us, nothing was any bother to them . All our guests at the meal part of the evening ,were very impressed with the professionalism and quality of the food, it was an excellent meal with a great choice of dishes to choose from. The buffet later on, was again of a very high standard and very much enjoyed by our guests. Bar staff did a great job in looking after everyone, as the bar always seemed to be busy. Excellent venue, food and drink ,which I would highly recommend to  members for their own functions. Thanks again to the staff of Cathcart Castle Golf Club in helping to make it a great night - Susan Roberts 

The quiz night on Friday was excellent. We raised £245 for charity (Alzheimer's Scotland) which makes it all worth while. The staff were excellent to deal with as always and are a credit to the golf club. Food and drink once again 'top notch'. We will certainly be repeating the exercise next year.
​ Joe Wilson  - President, Crossmyloof Curling Club

Just want to pass on my thanks to Lesley and rest of the catering and bar staff.  We celebrated Christine’s and Derek’s silver wedding anniversary on Sunday night and once again the food was excellent and so was the service. They all did the club proud. Thanks again - Allan Johnston  

Thanks for hosting our annual event and the lads all had a fantastic day and I have to admit it was one of our most popular courses to date, the day was a success all round and on behalf of Mackenzie Construction, thanks again 

As well as being a member of Cathcart Castle, I am fortunate enough to have had the opportunity of playing many courses across Scotland during the course of this year. Naturally you find yourself drawing comparisons between those courses and Cathcart Castle. In that comparison, I can say without doubt that the current condition of the Cathcart Castle course is right up there. This result does not come about without hard work and commitment. I therefore commend you and the rest of your team for achieving such a fine result with the greens in particular being of the highest standard - Martin Cullen 

Just a wee note to say I thought the Parlane McFarlane was a huge success on Saturday. The course was terrific which was even more remarkable given the volume of rain in the 24 hours prior. Moreover, the tournament itself was extremely well organised, probably the best run event I've played in this season (and I've played a few). Wee touches like having pin sheets, complimentary tees, and a proper starter not just one but two rounds. These are things that the guys were all talking about and I'm sure you will get an even stronger field next year as a result. Very well done guys, really looking forward to next year.
