GOLF FORMATS FOR FUN BOUNCE GAMES

 Hello Ladies

Denise Cowan has kindly forwarded information on some fun formats for golf games.
Hope you have fun trying them next time you play!

Morag Cunningham

WENTWORTH
This is match play competition with a team of one player taking on a team of the other two. To make it fair, the singleton team changes ever six holes. The team with two in it, their better ball counts as their score. A point is given to each golfer on the winning side on a hole, and whoever has the most points after 18 holes is the winner.

BARRACUDA

Another match play version, but in this one everyone plays on their own. Six points are awarded for each hole. If there is an outright winner and an outright second place then it is 4pts to the winner and 2pts to the second place. If two people tie for first it is 3pts each to them. If two people tie for second they get a point. If everyone ties the hole they get 2pts each.

THREESOMES
One player plays his ball throughout, and takes on the other two who are a team playing greensomes.

ON THE PERCH
This takes the idea from squash where only the person who is serving can score a point. On the Perch, also known sometimes as In The Chair or Chairman, is a format whereby only the person On The Perch can score a point.
The game starts with the perch being empty. The first player to win a hole outright then goes on the perch. If that person then wins the next hole outright, they score a point; if someone else wins that hole outright then they go on the perch. If the player on the perch halves the hole, he or she remains on the perch. If the other two players halve the hole the player is knocked off the perch and the perch becomes empty.

SKINS
This format can be played by three balls or four balls. Each hole is worth a skin – the term coming from the idea that there is a bag of money in a leather bag as the prize. The players decide in advance what each hole is worth in terms of a skin – sometimes all 18 have the same value, sometimes the later holes are worth more. If a player wins the hole outright he wins the skin. If no-one wins, then that skin is added to the skin for the next hole, and whoever win that hole then wins two skins. If there is no outright winner on that hole, the next becomes worth three skins and so on.


CAPTAINS DRIVE IN - SUNDAY 9th JANUARY 2022

 Hello Ladies

The drive-in of the new captains will take place at 10.30am on Sunday 9th January.
Hopefully, the weather will be benign so that some of you may be inclined to come to the 1st tee to cheer off the 2022 captains.

There is an associated mixed competition for the Captains Quaich. Winner will be presented with the quaich by Stevie Scott, the 2022 Club Captain.
The format will be mixed individual stableford. Entries can be made now on the SG app. Tee times have been reserved from 10.30-11.30am. A random draw will be done - games can include a mix of gents, ladies and juniors.

Due to the current Covid situation, there is no associated catering for those playing. 
For those who wish it, coffee/lunch will be available as usual in the clubhouse.

Please support this event if you can.

Thanks! Happy New Year and Happy Golfing in 2022 to you all.

Christmas Cracker Results

 Wednesday turned out to be a lovely morning for golf despite the doom and gloom of the forecast.

24 ladies played the 9 holes in various forms of Xmas dress, some more outrageous than others, but everyone enjoyed the golf.  A total of 38 enjoyed the Xmas lunch in the Castle Room which looked really festive thanks to Leanna's hard work.

The winning team with 24 points were Anne Robinson, Mary Hardie and Fiona Aitken and the runners up with 23 points were Sheila Biggart, Helen Abram and Alison Templeton.  The winner of the best outfit went to Margaret Parrott.

Thank you to everyone who played Spot the Ball - won by Fiona Aitken - which resulted in £53.00 being sent to the Red Cross.  An extra thank you to Fiona for donating her winnings back to the Charity.

PASSING OF ANNE NICOLL

It is with great sadness that I have to report that Anne Nicoll died last night.  I'm sure we all remember her for her positive attitude and kindness, and our thoughts are with her family.

FESTIVE TRI-AM IS ON!

Having looked at 3 weather forecasts I think we should be in luck for golf today!  Enjoy!

Friday, December 03, 2021

SPOT THE GOLF BALL COMPETITION

There will be an opportunity for you to win £25 at the Christmas lunch on Wednesday!

British Red Cross are raising funds and we have the chance to help.  Just write your name in a box, on a grid, to guess where the golf ball could be.   Each guess will cost  £1.00 so be sure to have some actual cash with you when you come for Lunch.  For someone to win £25.00, Red Cross will also get £25.00 so your £1.00 goes a long way.

Looking forward to seeing you at the club.

LADIES DINNER

The first Ladies Dinner since 2019 was held on Wednesday 27th October in the newly refurbished clubhouse.  It was a very wet evening but that didn't stop 44 ladies from coming out to enjoy the evening.  Sadly one lady failed to make it due to the dreadful flooding around Paisley and with so many roads closed as a result.

The catering team did a wonderful job coping with all the orders, both food and bar, to ensure that everyone was safe and remained seated at their table.  It certainly was a noisy affair and, after such a long time without socialising, it was lovely to be back to some form of normality.

Captain Gillian welcomed everyone at the start of the evening and then presented the Fun Competition prizes at the end.  Anne Judge informed us that the Greenlees Team had won Division 2 comprehensively and will be playing back in Division 1 next season.  She also thanked Nancy MacGadie for her dedication to the team over 7 decades and wished her a happy 'retirement'. She will be sadly missed.   


  

The final event of the year will be the Festive Tri-am on Wed 8th December.  Entries can now be made via the Scottish golf app and the draw will be made as usual before the event.  Information regarding lunch afterwards will follow.

Here are a few photos of the evening!
