LADIES DINNER

On Wednesday 23rd October 43 ladies enjoyed a lovely evening at the annual dinner.  Despite all the disruptive work being carried out fitting new windows in both the smoke room and mixed lounge, Simon, Mandy and their team coped amazingly. No one would have known how the room had looked only a couple of hours before everyone arrived! Judging by the noise level, everyone had a good time.
Jan welcomed everyone and presented the Fun Competition prizes before giving a little explanation of how she proposes to run the Ladies Section next season in light of the fact that there is no Vice Captain to take over in January.
As usual Jean Irvine has taken a very good selection of photos of the evening.

LADY GOLFERS' ANNUAL DINNER

The ladies dinner will be on Wednesday 23rd October 2019, 7 for 7.30pm. The menu offered by new chef Simon Partridge looks delicious (see below) and I hope as many ladies as possible will be able to attend. The price will be £25 for 3 courses plus coffee or tea.

The prizes for this year's charity and fun competitions will be presented on the night.

There is a notice up in the Locker Room for everyone to sign up and tick their menu choices. Anyone who wishes to come but cannot get to the club in the next week or so can email me with their menu choices and I will add them to the list.

See you then

FAREWELL TO TOM ECKFORD

Ladies, as you know, Tom will be leaving the Pro Shop at the end of the month after 25 years at Ranfurly Castle.

Next Wednesday 25th September will be the final Wednesday we see him in the Pro Shop when we check-in for a Ladies Competition (it will be the rearranged McLachlan Cup - weather permitting).

To mark the occasion, I have invited Tom to come up and join the ladies for lunch after we play so we can all say goodbye and thank you.

It would therefore be lovely to see as many of you as possible there for lunch on Wednesday, even if you are not playing in the competition.

I will see you there!
Jan

COUNTY ROSEBOWL FINAL AT GLEDDOCH

Ladies I feel slightly awkward blogging this, as it is a bit like blowing your own trumpet, but I felt you would all like to know that I played in the County Rosebowl final this afternoon and won 3&1.

The final was held at Gleddoch, arranged and refereed by County Captain June Lockhart who is a member there. My opponent was Linda MacDougall (Greenock and Kilmacolm), handicap 7 so I received 3 shots. It was a good match - I felt that I was hitting better iron shots to greens but Linda's putting was outstanding, 12 footers were practically gimmes, until she finally missed one by a whisker at the 15th.

I managed to get to 4 up after 10 holes, then Linda had 3 birdies in the next 5 holes! The match was finally over at the (pretty muddy) 17th where, after we both had to get a free drop to play our second shots, I finally holed a long putt for a birdie 4. Huge thanks to Sheila for coming to caddy for me, listening to my witterings about which irons to play and generally being a big encouragement.

I am absolutely delighted to win the trophy again for Ranfurly Castle - looking back at the trophy there have been 6 Ranfurly winners in the last 8 years - starting in 2012 with Iona Stephen (now a big-time Sky Sports presenter hobnobbing with the Solheim Cup girls but back then a Ranfurly Castle mere mortal!), then Denise won three years in a row (wow)  and last year Anne Judge won at Cathcart Castle. Whose turn could it be next year??
