Kirkmichael & Water of Girvan Curling Club

Established 1815

Kirkmichael's Curling Club is one of the oldest clubs in Ayrshire and is the longest continuous operating club in the village. It was formed on 2nd December 1815, just six months after the Battle of Waterloo and the defeat of Napoleon Bonaparte. The club played for many years on outdoor ponds at Kirkmichael House, Barbrethan, Tranew and Barneil. Later it moved to play at Beresford Terrace ice rink in Ayr, and now meets at the ice rink in Limekiln Road.

Having celebrated our two hundred years as a club with a bonspiel and a celebration dinner, it is regretted that we are unable to contnue as we have in the past.

It has been decided that we have enough players to continue with our annual match against Crosshill and Darvel. We would consider any other challenges from other clubs.

League - Tied between R. McFadzean and N. Wilson

Darvel - Tied on 11 Shots and Ends each.

Crosshill  Kirkmichael 20 Shots, Crosshill 21

Bicentenary Events 2015

 

On Sunday 15th February a Bonspiel with 6 rinks from Kirkmichael played 1 rink each from Crosshill; Straiton; Kirkoswald; Darvel; Kyle and Carrick and Ayr Curling Club. The winning visitor rink was Ayr Curling Club skipped by Bobby Ireland (President) and James McGill the winning skip for Kirkmichael. Two Kirkmichael rinks were made up of former members.

Commemorative dram glasses were given to all the players taking part. It was a memorable event to celebrate our 200 years and was enjoyed in true curling tradition.
