Winter Play using Golf Mats

In response this week to a request from some Lady members re the above, the reply from the Board was as follows:
"The use of mats is not forbidden and may be used. The object is not to damage the fairways unnecessarily."
It should be noted however that Tom has no plans to stock them in the Pro Shop.

A Winter Whole In Won for Helen!

Yesterday, during a Winter 12 hole tie between Helen Abram and Susan Reid, Helen had a hole in one at the 5th.! Of course it was a winter green, but none the less it was a special moment for both ladies as they watched the ball from the tee disappear into the hole.
Congratulations Helen from us all.
We have still to establish however if there is any truth in the rumour that there is unlimited moet tucked away behind the bar for the lady members to help celebrate this "rare occasion".......................

Invite to Old Course Ranfurly Social Evening 9 Feb

Ladies I apologise for the 11th hour communication re above but the invite (dated 26th Jan) got lost in the unopened mail in our locker room (secretaries should not be permitted holidays!!) amongst the high number of Open Day Letters that arrive at this time of year.
I will phone The Old Course and explain but I am sure you will be made very welcome if you wish to go along.
The cost is £3, 19.30 start, and is very much based on retail therapy-golf clothes, shoes as well as a selection of handbas and jewellery.
Banish the Winter Blues!!

Bridge Evening 3rd Feb 2010

62 people braved the snowy conditions for a fun evening of bridge.
The format being the same as previous years, with 16 tables divided equally between the two lounges. Due to the increasingly poor weather conditions the evening finished earlier than normal with the last hand being called at 21.45.
Lady Captain, Agnes Williamson presented the prizes.

The prize winners were as follows:
The Grand Slam was won by Graham Peacock and Heather Davidson.
First prize with 2950 points was won by Sue Murphy.
Second prize with 2570 points was won by Liz Crichton.
Third prize with 2250 points was won by Kay Black.
A joint fourth prize with 1460 points was won by Anne Jenkins and Jean Atkinson.
The lucky chairs were won by Jean Atkinson and Mike Abram.
Unfortunately due to my lack of understanding of Bridge ,there was some confusion on the night but hopefully all prize winners will have received their prizes.

Thanks to Agnes and Sheila for their help organising the supper. Thanks to Nicola and Tom and their team behind the bar for all their hard work.

Thanks to the Bridge of Weir Ladies Bridge Club and other players for the use of their tables. Finally, a very big thank you to everyone who supported this evening, it always greatly appreciated.
