Questions have been raised recently about whether it is permissible to change your competition tee-off time.

As ballots are now drawn and times allocated 9 days in advance, players’ circumstances can change in the following days and it is therefore permissible to change your competition tee-off time however you wish up to and including the day before the competition. (Please as a courtesy advise your playing partners if you are withdrawing or changing your tee time).

The Ladies Committee has also decided that in the unusual circumstance of no-one being available to mark a player’s card for a competition, then the player can change their original tee time on the day of the competition to allow another player to mark their card.

Also note that there is no lower limit to the number of ladies entering a competition for it to go ahead. A competition will only be cancelled if bad weather leads to the course being unplayable or if there are zero entries.

 Our West Ren Team played a match at Ralston GC last night.  It turned out to be a much better evening that at first thought, so no rain and reasonably warm.  That's the good news, sadly, the team was well beaten losing 5 1/2 to 1/2 match.   Thank you to all the ladies who played very well over quite a tricky course.

Very many congratulations to Rosemary Ogilvie who had a Hole in One today at the 7th!


As previously intimated, Jan and her daughter Alison were playing in the Inter County Foursome finals yesterday at East Kilbride.  They had tough opposition but played extremely well and were the overall runners up with a score of 79.  Very many congratulations to both. The winners were a Lanarkshire pairing with a score of  level par 73.

Congratulations also to Anne Judge and Sheila Biggart who are through to the next round of the Daily Mail Foursomes after a 3&1 win at Ranfurly Castle on Tuesday, against some tough opponents from Gourock.

The Renfrewshire County Foursomes were played last Thursday at Bonnyton Golf Club.  It was a lovely day and several Ranfurly members were playing.  The day was won by Jan and her daughter Alison with a gross 81, net 69 - very well done.  They are now one of 4 couples who have qualified to play in the Inter County Finals tomorrow, 1st June, at East Kilbride GC.  Very best of luck to them and lets hope they have a good day in this lovely weather.
