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!

AUTUMN MEETING FOR MITCHELL TROPHY

Played Wednesday 8 September 2021.

11 ladies played in weather that was unexpectedly boiling for the time of year!

1st Silver: Marion Munro 89 (12) 77 (bih)

2nd Silver: Jan Macnab 86 (9) 77

1st Bronze: Mary Hardie 101 (25) 76

2nd Bronze: Gillian Donaghy 104 (25) 79 (bih)

TROPHY WINNER: Mary Hardie

The scoring was relatively high for such a calm day, but there was a highlight when Denise Cowan had a HOLE-IN-ONE at the 14th.

Reported as a 7 iron shot that was played through the bunker gap for a kick in towards the pin on the right, both Marion and Denise were not sure the ball was in the hole until they looked closely! Well done Denise 😀

FRIENDLY v ELDERSLIE SUNDAY 5th SEPTEMBER

This last friendly fixture of 2021 was hosted at home on a beautiful warm day with the course in excellent condition.

The Elderslie ladies enjoyed the match and our hospitality afterwards.

The match result was a very equitable half.

Many thanks to our team of Lindsay Wright, Pauline MacEwen, Fiona Christie, Morag Cunningham and Evelyn McDermid who represented the club magnificently.

Very many thanks to Jan Macnab for organising and for playing on the day with the Elderslie organiser.

If any lady wishes to take part in a friendly match in 2022 (usually 3-4 matches over the season) please let me know (cunninghammorag58@gmail.com). You can participate in as many or as few matches as you like. They are actually fun fixtures and good for match play practise in a relaxed atmosphere.
